Birth control pills have been available for nearly 60 years and about 100 million women take them. But despite their ubiquity, some researchers still that think certain aspects of the contraceptives deserve more research. Namely: how the pill might affect the brain.

The product is called Gelesis100 and is a capsule that contains little particles made up of cellulose, a fibre found in plants, and citric acid, which is found in fruits. When the particles come into contact with water, they soak up more than 100 times their weight and form a super-absorbent hydrogel, similar in consistency to tapioca pudding. This fills the stomach and creates a sensation of fullness, resulting in the patient eating less food. Late-stage trial results unveiled this morning suggest the pill is good at helping people lose weight, with 60pc of...
