Can you add one or two sentences to describe the conclusion or bottom line? That way, people don't have to read the whole article to understand where it's about.

Sorry, sure. It talks about a couple of people who have weird and rare genetic defects and how studying them helped scientists find new hormones (eg blood-sugar-regulating hormone called asprosin) and mechanisms of weight loss etc..

Hey, can you just post an Amazon link to the supplement that will give me "The Thin Gene?" That way, not only do I have to waste my time actually reading and gaining an understanding for myself, but I can just pop a pill and be lean forever. TIA!

Actually, the gene begets a terrible wasting disease.

Unless your name is Gene and you're thin.
