A skinny hormone injection may spell the death knell of the obesity epidemic in the next decade or so.
By injecting fat people with the hormones found in thin people, the obesity epidemic may be finished root, shoot and branch within the next 10 years. The experts are looking into the matter and such a drug cocktail in injection form may be ready soon.

Termed the “triple jab” it copies the hormonal effects of gastric bypass surgery. Basically, this injection allows fat people to feel full. It also reduces hunger by a third.
Although currently surgery occurs on a mass level, it is pretty costly and is also a risky affair. The patient may end up dead which is something no surgeon would want to happen.
The problem with obese people is that their hormones are such that they cannot stop eating. Hunger in them is like a runaway train.
Only slim people as well as those with a stomach infection tend to eat less due to decreased hunger levels. According to scientists though, ten years from now, obesity will have gone the way of other deadly diseases of the past such as malaria and TB.
The anti-obesity injections or rather vaccinations will be very cheap and will end the disease which has taken over the world today. In lab studies, two obese men that were given the “jab” were allowed to eat from a ready meal.
They consumed 280 fewer calories than they would have had they not been given the injection. These men did not feel hungry afterwards and even reported feeling full. Thanks to the injections, these hefty males were eating 30% less than usual, according to DailyMail.
The hormones that are being administered in injection form are OXM, PYY and GLP1. They need to be given before each meal. This can get to be a hectic affair.
Yet in the future they may need to be administered only every seven days. That would be more ideal. These hormones tell the human brain, which is the most complex thing in existence, to forgo the consumption of more food.
Thus the person eats less and ultimately loses weight in the process. Also the transplantation of gut bacteria to promote weight loss is being looked into by scientists.
