Spray Obesity Away

Compellis Pharmaceuticals, a company that develops different and unique therapeutics for the treatment of obesity has just been granted the patent for a new invention that is supposed to easily fight obesity.

The invention will inhibit olfactory neurosensory function to treat obesity and related disorders. In other words, the nasal spray will curb cravings by blocking the sense of smell and taste. Think about it, that Cinnabon craving at the airport would be far less tempting if you can't even smell or taste it.

Hmm, I'm thinking it would be a great way to get my kids to eat their veggies.

That sounds pretty scary. Also, there's something to be said for self-control. Someone who can't stop themselves (really can't stop themselves) from eating something fatty when they're three hundred pounds has a lot more to worry about than ... not tasting something. They'd eat it anyway, I suspect ...

colormesticky, I'm with you, this does not sound like a good idea. This is weird.

I think I have never had a love for any other word other than "olfactory." ~M~

Somehow using something that kills two of your five senses sounds a lot worse for you than those Taco Bell nachos. I'll pass- sounds scary.
