ummm while it doesn't surprise me really I still find it pretty strange, seems like it should be illegal to me. I mean extracting your stomach contents for the purpose of weight loss?? yeah not so sure about that...whatever happened to healthy diet and exercise? yikes!
This really ticks me off. Like, I am seriously affronted.
People in this world - children - starving to DEATH and these ****eaters are implanting devices to allow them to binge eat, and squirt the excess out so they don't have to deal with the inconvenience of over-eating.
Makes me sick! The greed in this world is astonishing.
Wow, you hit the nail on the head by calling it technology-assisted bulimia. Not healthy at all. This is a horrible idea! What about nutrients?
I don't think anybody interested in a device like this is remotely concerned about nutrients.
You can eat your weight in carrots, beans, spinach, fruit, etc. in a week and not gain so much fat that you need to pump your food out in order to avoid obesity.
This is for people who want to eat gobs of fattening fried foods but not look bad for doing it.
Not that I approve of this thing... But it looks like it's meant more as an alternative to gastric bypass, and the article does say that they haven't done enough research to see what the after effects are of getting it out. It does absolutely nothing to teach the person to eat better. But then again, neither does bypass surgery unless it's paired with nutrition counseling.
Again, I think this is gross. I hope the FDA agrees. Sweden on the otherhand, is a bunch of weirdos lol!
