...ement as to when our hunger is satisfied," Dr Andrews said. The free radicals also try to attack the hunger neurons, but these are protected by the uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2). Dr Andrews said the reduction in the appetite-suppressing cells could be one explanation for the complex condition of adult-onset...

Study confirms that low-calorie sweeteners are helpful in weight control
