    Hopefully we'll see this product for humans soon.

    Imagine this: You're gushing blood. Nothing seems to make it stop. Then you apply a gel to your wound, and the bleeding stops within seconds. You're healed in minutes.
    This is the premise of VetiGel, an algae-based polymer created by Joe Landolina — a 22 year-old who invented the product when he was just 17.

                            I am very cautious with such kind of "discoveries"; While there is (in some persons) a genetic background that helps to get obese, most of obesity is due to poor food/poor life quality (too much fat/not enough sport or physical activities).
                            Focusing on an obesity gene will turn into a way to remove individual responsability

                              Well, social pressure doesn´t seem to be working and as countries are reluctant to outlaw obesity or even ban unhealthy food and drink let alone passive entertainment, we might as well find and - maybe in the future - fix causes making people susceptible to obesity.
