Scientists have found deep in feature of their body and noticed that Guinea is not part of the protein responsible for the production aprosina that was the reason for their abnormally low appetite.
Experts have found that the hormone, which is lacking in the body of experimental, heightening of appetite, and therefore its reduction contributes to the weakening of the sense of hunger, which can help in the fight against obesity.
