An innovative research program into treatment of Morbid Obesity was dealt a major blow yesterday by the death of the patient involved in the highly contentious experimental treatment.
The Deceased, who was severely obese due to a diet extremely high in fats, has been treated by University Hospital Consultant Professor Inge Ectit for the past twelve months and has been administered daily injections of Canine hormones.
Professor Ectit's theory evolved after he observed that dogs became extremely fit, slim and healthy, despite having a diet consisting of the consumption of large quantities of unhealthy fatty foods markedly deficient in vegetables and vitamin rich greens.
The Professor surmised that the dog's biological make up somehow was able to convert what was ostensibly an unhealthy and harmful diet into the necessary nourishment to produce a fit healthy animal.
The patient whose name has been withheld at the request of his family, was reportedly responding amazingly well to the daily injections of canine hormones, losing 40% of his body fat and going for long walks first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The unfortunate event occurred yesterday near his home in Hull.
Taking advantage of the warm Spring morning, the gentleman decided to go for a walk in the sunshine. Tragically as he was lying in the road licking his balls, he was hit by a bus.
