Medically-sponsored bulemia? (Is the US in decline as was the Roman Empire after it reached the pinacle of its world power and crazed excess?)
So immediately opined two of my friends today when I tweeted and Facebooked about the new FDA approved medical device, the AspireAssist, a device that takes food right form the stomach — into the toilet. For real. Courtesy of a study at the Washington University in St. Louis and 111 study subjects who tested the device.
Gratefully, there has been a bit of an uproar. One surgeon is attempting to organize others to sue the FDA. “Others worry that the device will give patients the impression that they can eat as much as they want, because they can just pump the food out afterwards. Instead, curing obesity means changing eating habits, teaching patients to eat less and eat healthier foods, combined with exercise.”
Apparently one of the male study participants loves the device because he can still go out ‘with the boys’ and indulge in a huge rib eye steak.
Apparently about 500 people world-wide are exploring this new trend.
Enough said. Will the craziness never end in this country?
And some celebrity doctors enjoying enormous public trust and impact, those like Dr. Oz, rail against safe and sane custom corset waist training?
And call “a waist training disaster” the fact that you might need two breaths to blow out 20 birthday candles when you are snugly laced down in your corset? This was the case for one young person appearing on Dr. Oz’s April TV show.
Perhaps Dr. Oz would like to interview the owner of Aspire Bariatrics, the promoter and funding organization for the new medically-sponsored bulemia device, and promote it as a proper obesity approach compared to corsets?
