Hijacking gut-brain communications can shut down hunger pangs

A new study from the University of Pennsylvania has uncovered the biological mechanism by which our gut communicates with the brain to regulate the sensation of hunger. The researchers also discovered a novel combination of hormones that can mimic the signal sent to our brain telling it that enough food has been consumed...
