Scientists all over the world are having huge breakthroughs in cancer research, HIV/AIDS vaccinations and now -- the greatest of them all -- a drug that gets rid of your double chin.
It's a win for science and a win for humanity in general.
Did a rough weekend turn into a Sunday binge-fest?
Maybe you couldn't resist the Ben & Jerry's that was eyeing you in the grocery store.
Well, getting rid of that extra chin that must have grown overnight may be as simple as getting a couple shots.
The Dermatologic and Ophthalmic Drugs Advisory Committee is asking for the FDA to approve a fat-blasting injection that works by destroying extra fat cells in areas where nobody wants them.
However, the medicine does have its drawbacks -- 96 percent of injected participants reported a reaction at the injection site, and the large majority only saw "slight improvements" after 12 weeks and 50 shots. Ouch.
It's crazy to think that regardless of if the FDA approves this innovative injection or not, people are still going to try and get their hands on it.
Just think about it: Would you eat all the pizza in the world if you knew it wouldn't add 10 pounds to the face?
That was rhetorical. We all know the answer to that.
