The obesity gene soon under control?

IRX 3 and IRX 5, it may not tell you anything, but these two genes of obesity were discovered a few years ago by British researchers. Today, scientists are going further: they have understood their mechanisms of action that an organism stores fat instead of burning it. And above all, managed to reverse it. Result in the mouse: by genetically modifying these genes, they have become twice as thin as the control group. And have not taken any weight, even with a diet higher in fat. When are GMOs (genetically modified obese)?
