So the 10 member panel of the FDA has granted the golden egg to Allergan, Inc. for the Lap Band. I’ve said this before and I will continue to repeat it, weight loss cures will never be found because it is not cost-effective. Same thing with the common cold. Think this country has high unemployment now, it would 10x worse if those cures were found. Walk down the aisle of any drug store and see how many items are directly sold because of the common cold. All the diet centers and diet food would be as extinct as the dinosaur if the cure for obesity was found. So who is really going to benefit from this Lap Band, only those who have insurance and can afford it. Oh, and don’t worry if your BMI is too low, eat your way to qualify and BAM you’re good to go.
