Hats off to a team of British scientists! They have built what they say is the world’s first artificial stomach - it is a shiny, high-tech box and is capable of simulating human digestion physically. It has a capacity of about half the size of an actual stomach. The artificial gut can ‘eat’ roughly 24 ounces of food - vegetable soup being its most substantial meal to date.

This amazing device can withstand the corrosive acids and enzymes found in the human gut. It is made of sophisticated plastics and metals. This artificial stomach may ultimately help to develop super-nutrients — like obesity-fighting foods capable of fooling the stomach into thinking that it is full.

Ah! That’s really an amazing an information for over-weights.
