CiCi’s All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet-buzzkilling researchers at Trinity College Dublin have discovered both an interesting and depressing quirk about a particular fat-fighting type of cell in the body.
Their potency to regulate obesity goes down the fatter you get.
Oh; And then it just quits.
It turns out these cells, called INKTs, help keep most people from getting obese.
But there comes a tipping-point, where they just seem to stop. It’s possible the chemical output of fat cells just becomes too great for them to manage, and their efficacy then approaches zero.
Now that I’ve thoroughly crushed your souls under the heel of my jackboot;
a ray of light.
Dr. Lydia Lynch, Sexy Bada**-In-Chief and certainly part of the Superman universe, (non?) discovered that not only does losing weight/fat BRING BACK THE GODDAMNED INKT CELLS; IN-FORCE,
But she and her team also discovered a FAT-LOSS TACTICAL NUKE.
It’s a special type of fat called AGC, or Alpha-GalactosylCeramide, that can lead to all kinds of fat/weight-loss and diabetes-reversal by replenishing the INKT cells.
There you go, ladies. If this discovery really pans-out and it can be pharmaceuticalized, then:
You. Have. Your. Magic. Bullet!
Seacrest Out! ::drops mic::
