Barbie’ drug could make people slim, tanned and sexy

Scientists in the US are working on a ‘Barbie drug’ that gives people a tan, makes them lose weight and increases their sex drive.

Scientists at the University of Arizona told Eyewitness News 5 they came across the drug while looking for ways to help people avoid skin cancer.

They tested a hormone, melanotan 2, on a group of men hoping it would stimulate a natural tan without the aid of sunlight.

But, to their surprise, they found it also seemed to work as a sexual stimulant and they say it should also help people lose weight.
