Scientist Says His Fat-Burning Drug Is Almost Ready After Years of Research

Is the world ready for a magical drug that not only burns fat but also increases muscle?

Researcher Ronald Evans thinks he’s almost there after a breakthrough a decade ago that came with some deadly side effects. In 2007, Evans was completing a study showing that mice on a certain drug burned more fat and were more athletic – even without much exercise.

Evans warned over and over that the pills were not ready for humans to take, but people didn’t listen to the part about cancerous tumors developing in the mice.

Ten years later, the researcher believes he’s found a drug that can boost metabolism and muscle without disastrous side effects. The first test will be used to fight Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a gene mutation affecting around 1 in 5,000 men.

Bloomberg reported:

“A drug that promotes the benefits of fitness could have widespread applications,” [Evans] says with more than a little understatement. Beyond tackling obesity, a pill that replicates the benefits of exercise could help reduce the risk for chronic inflammation, diabetes, even cancer.

On today’s show, Pat and Jeffy were definitely ready for this miracle drug to be on the market.

“I’m in,” Jeffy said.

“Who isn’t?” Pat asked. “This would be the best-selling pill in the history of the world.”

PAT: Some other good news: This is pretty amazing, if it turns out to -- to be what they say it has potential to be. They've developed -- scientists named Ronald Evans has been working on a fat-burning pill. Now I got your attention, right? It supposedly -- the one he developed in like 2007, so it's been ten years since he initially developed it.

It worked on mice to the extent that they lost weight and -- and they were in such good shape, it was like they had been working out. It's almost like a workout pill.

And so he said at the time, it's not ready for humans yet. We have to test this for a while.

JEFFY: Right. Which they were doing.

PAT: Well, China reverse engineers these things. And they come up with some sort of powder and start selling it. Athletes are buying it, because they hear how great it works.

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: Ronald Evans is saying, wait. Hold it. There is a reason why I said this isn't for human scampings yet. This could cause Casper. And it has for certain people. Now (?) to the point to where it's not harmful to humans, and it burns fat. And it -- it changes your body's metabolism, to where your body thinks it's been working out and responds accordingly.

JEFFY: I'm in. I'm in.

PAT: Who isn't? This would be the best-selling pill in the history of the world, I'm guessing.

JEFFY: Ever.

PAT: Can you imagine if you could burn fat with a pill? Oh, count us all in on that.

JEFFY: Can I imagine? Yes. Yes, I can.


The Dark Horses: From Campus Villains to Political Peacemakers | Ep 117

One day, Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying were biology professors at Evergreen State College. The next, they were "campus villains" who dared to speak out when the school told white people to take a "day of absence." Since then, they have become founding members of the "Intellectual Dark Web" and continued their fight for truth in a world gone woke. But with the world changing faster every day, and not necessarily in a good way, they were hit by a realization: Science and evolutionary biology haven't changed very much. Humans have. Bret and Heather join Glenn to break down where these changes are leading us, as they explore in-depth in their new book, "A Hunter-Gatherer's Guide to the 21st Century: Evolution and the Challenges of Modern Life." From climate change and capitalism to Afghanistan, our "apparently senile Commander-in-Chief," and the evolution of sex (among flowers), Bret and Heather make the case that the key to escaping the chaos is right in front of us, if we choose to listen.


FEC's Twitter/Hunter Biden ruling was RIGHT? Conservative FEC Commissioner explains

Remember when Twitter blocked the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop story from being shared right before the 2020 election? The FEC ruled that Twitter did NOT violate election laws by doing so. But while many on the right questioned if this was the right call, Glenn has a talk with conservative FEC Commissioner Trey Trainor, who explains why he personally disagrees with Twitter's decision to block the story, but agrees with the FEC's final ruling: "Everybody on the right would have gotten a complaint filed against them immediately if we would have found that Twitter violated campaign finance rules."


WATCH: Weaponizing Crisis: Exposing the Hidden Hand After January 6

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

‘Both miraculous and horrendous’: Glenn Beck gives emotional update on Afghanistan rescue

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
