OK, we now have a way to reduce the catabolic nature of our genetics via Myostat. It would seem that the counterpart to such a product would be either the suppressing of the fat-storing gene(s), or the activation of the gene(s) to destroy fat cells. I know, there’s controversy over whether you can actually destroy fat cells once thier formed, but I of the belief that you can - I figure all of your cells in your body are re-generated every few years, so it should be possible to just not regenerate those (although destroying the ones you have would be better).
Anyway, I was wondering if anybody thought this was possible in the near future (like our lifetimes), or is this just so far out there. Of course, a year ago I would have said that a product such as Myostat wasn't possible either, so I'm betting that somebody has to already be looking into such a thing. I know BIOTEST was working on such a thing as a spray on a while ago (Amphasol?), but it didn't quite work as well as hoped. Perhaps our understanding has become a bit better then. Any thoughts?
