New mice research may help develop a drug that boosts metabolism whilst we over eat.
Hmm….is this going in the right direction? I guess if the world population refuses to eat less then this sort of research will be funded by pharmaceutical companies and maybe it is some peoples dream solution.
But I don’t like the sound of it. What ever happened to developing some ‘agency’ – the capacity to turn your own life around by becoming your own hero from stirring the depth of your character?
And what about the impact on the environment of feeding the ravenous hoards? And how could we explain it to the starving others in the world. Awkward conversation.
I also can’t help thinking what Aliens visiting our planet would think of us. Ha!
I can see a world where the most profitable and influential business’ are in weapons, snack foods & beverages and pharmaceuticals. Very disturbing and very close.
