In this ground-breaking study on a rat model, Dr. Lam's team discovered that activating receptors of the cholecystokinin (CCK) peptide hormone in the gut rapidly and potently lowers blood glucose levels by triggering a signal to the brain and then to the liver to lower glucose or sugar production. In the same experiment, CCK failed to lower blood glucose in rodents fed a high-fat diet for three days.</blockquote>
Interesting. Does anyone have more info about this?

A quick search tells me this is interesting stuff but a note of caution, the researcher has a VERY good PR campaign going as a researcher myself it kind of sets off alarm bells. I would question some of the assumptions in the study and wonder why based on numerous other studies done why they don't see the same effects with the presence of fat in the diet.
