A new study, led by researchers from King's College London, has found a link between long-term use of antidepressants and sustained weight gain. The research, collating medical data from over 300,000 adults monitored over a decade, suggests that widespread, and increasing, antidepressant use could be contributing to growing obesity levels worldwide...

No matter how regularly you exercise, artificial muscles have long since surpassed their natural counterparts. Now, researchers from the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois have developed an artificial muscle made of carbon fiber and rubber that can lift over 12,000 times its own weight...

A recent study sheds new light on why people gain weight from long-term stress and disruption to their circadian rhythms. It also helps to explain weight gain from the use of glucocorticoid drugs, which are often used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma. For the first time scientists think they have a molecular understanding of the reasons for the weight gain involved...Contin
An important new study from researchers at Cornell University has found that when mice become obese they can also lose up to 25 percent of their taste buds. This connection between obesity and taste has previously been observed in humans but this is the first research to potentially uncover a biological explanation behind the phenomenon...Continue Reading How weight gain could be reducing you
Anyone who has struggled with the inconsistent results of dieting would be familiar with the way weight loss can plateau after a short period of time, signaling the body has altered its energy expenditure processes to burn less fat. University of California San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine researchers have identified an enzyme that plays a key role in controlling these metabolic changes, s
