We now live in a world where our FDA has approved a weight loss port. This port is something that will take food out of your stomach that you have ingested so that you don't gain the weight associated with the calories that you have eaten. I'm not sure why I haven't been able to find any one saying this isn't healthy at this point. This outrages me on so many levels it ridiculous. The reason being; if you are taking food away from your body before it has a chance to get digested you are robbing yourself from all of the vitamins and nutrients you are supposed to be getting from your food.

Do we really live in a world where we are so lazy that we can't be bothered to eat the right way? I know we have an issue with trying to eat quickly. We are all so busy we grab fast food or cook something that has been overly processed and not good for us. Instead we are willing to let a doctor cut a hole in our stomach and attach a tube so that we can pump out what we shouldn't have eaten? Does nobody else see the problem with this? Further more why has our FDA approved such a device? At some point humans need to start taking control of their own lives again and realize that just because we want to eat something does not mean that we should. It is in fact ok to not eat something that we are craving in order to be a little bit healthier.

In saying that, it is also ok for you to occasionally eat food that you shouldn't. However, there needs to be a stopping point. A point before we get to that area in life where we consider a port in our stomachs to pump out unwanted calories. I just feel like this is one thing that could cause more harm than good. What happens when young ladies decide that this is what they need in order to not be fat? What are the doctors going to do when people are nutrient deficient because they have pulled all of the food from their bodies in order to look like a super model? Will they then prescribe vitamins to get them back on track or will they actually tell them that this is not a healthy alternative to losing weight?

Thoughts?
