This includes the weight crisis affecting many Western nations, which is not only a matter of self-esteem, but is also a serious health concern. The traditional approach to healthy nutrition and exercise doesn’t work for everyone. As a result, a huge diet industry has evolved that generates billions each year, but somehow does not provide any real solutions.
Several Israeli companies are now hoping to genuinely address the issue of weight loss, including Raziel Therapeutics, which, under the direction of Alon Blumenfeld, has developed an injectable molecule that destroys fat cells. The drug is based on the research of Professor Shmuel Ben-Sasson of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. It is still undergoing clinical trials, but once approved, these injections could be used not only for cosmetic purposes, but also to fight conditions such as lipolysis and Dercum’s disease.
