The cure for type 2 diabetes may be all in your head, a new study in rats and mice suggests.
With a single shot to the brain, researchers can rid rodents of all symptoms of the disease for months. The injection, a relatively low dose of a tissue growth factor protein called fibroblast growth factor 1 (FGF1), appears to reset powerful neural networks that can control the amount of sugar in the blood.
Oh sure. When some guy in a lab coat injects something into a rodent’s brain it’s call “science”. When try to inject something into a bear’s arm I get banned from the zoo and arrested for having heroin.
