Calories Don't Count

I just read an old book written in 1961, before I was born.  It sold over 2 million copies back then and is interesting because it was prescient but also quaint. In those days obesity was a whopping 20% of American adults. Thirty-six percent today.

A Crack in Creation

Since obesity is mostly a genetic problem, CRISPR could be the cure. If you haven't heard of CRISPR prepare to be amazed.
The book seems to be mostly written by Professor Doudna one of the pioneers of the nature and uses of CRISPR systems who will probably participate in a Nobel Prize for this work and who stands to make a lot of money.
