Canker sore drug linked to weight loss in mice

Medical Weight LossResearchers say a drug used to treat canker sores helps mice lose weight without diet or exercise.

The mouth sore drug is called Amlexanox, and it’s been on the market for more than 15 years.

University of Michigan researchers gave mice a high-fat diet, and the mice became obese.

Then they injected the animals with Amlexanox and the mice lost weight, even though they kept eating the same amount of calories.

The mice gained all the weight back when they were taken off the drug.

The researchers will begin human studies later this year.

    From my point of view I do not find most useful exercises in weight loss. Very useful for our health and this inadequacy. Without risking any medication or anything else

    I've never been a huge fan of these "lose weight quickly" type articles. The problem with most of the methods is that, most people end up putting the weight straight back on.

    If you want to lose weight permanently, then visit: Thanks to the great diet plans and workout routines, I'm currently in the best shape of my life and look great. Furthermore, the weight is staying off!

    However, remember there are no shortcuts or magical secrets to a great body – it's simply a result of hard-work and not giving up!

    I hate people who are like "You can't lose weight, you're too skinny already!" I'm a ballet dancer and just started pointe recently and my teacher told me I had to lose about 10 pounds so I didn't hurt my feet etc and whenever I tell someone about that, they just call me anorexic. It's horrible. And you look beautiful now :)
