Obesity may just get cured soon. “Dirt” may prove to be a possible cure for the lifestyle disease. Tahnee Denning a UniSA and PhD candidate found out that clay materials may reduce fat droplets in the gut by soaking them up. During her study she observed that instead of breaking the fat droplets to release the drugs the dirt material attracted the fat droplets and soaked them up into their particle structure. The clay used exhibited a surprising side effect by not letting the fat get absorbed back in the body and ensured that it passes through the digestive system.
