Sounds suspiciously familiar

I saw on the news tonight that scientists are about to start testing yet another new and all-natural wonder drug to make weight lose effortless and fun. They claim that milk derived peptides will do the trick. (For those of you in a hurry, this can already be found in baby formula.)

My cynicism was on high alert as they breathlessly described this great hope of the great and large as having the effects of making people feel good, motivated, with significantly improved mood, all at the same time as suppressing their appetite, thus ensuring weight loss - “all with a plain white powder”.

That didn’t exactly sound “new” to me.

The thin line between licit and illicit drugs slowly stretches its gaunt self to breaking point.
