Hormonally Challenged 

Higher in utero testosterone levels seem to be linked to lower social skills: kids born of higher levels had less developed social interests and skills, were often poor communicators and tended to be good at pattern recognition tasks. This study supports, in a small way, the author's theory that autism is an 'extreme form' of the male brain. High prenatal testosterone has also been linked to homosexuality, but that body of research is shaky at best.

Other researchers have found (and, of course, patented) that melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) regulates the balance between fat storage and metabolism in rats (and, presumptively, in humans as well). One bit noted in the release that I like: this won't be a drug to help people get unhealthily thin...it only works by correcting the balance of fat storage and burn. I want my prescription NOW!!!!
