The Medical Establishment’s Newest Pseudo-Science

So now it’s being heavily implied that gastric bypass surgery is a useful tool for treating high cholesterol.

Gastric bypass surgery can help lower cholesterol and improve the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL (good) cholesterol, according to a new study presented here at the 27th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

The article goes on to talk about a study that shows how gastric bypass patients see major improvements in their cholesterol levels for many years post-surgery. What they fail to mention is that is when you chop out most of the stomach from a morbidly obese person, forcing them to eat far less (and far better) than they are used to, yes, you will see improvements in all such measurements. But this invasive, destructive, last best effort surgery is being touted as a possible cure for, of all things, an issue that is propped up by fear mongering (high cholesterol) for the sake of making medical establishment giants more profitable.

And who went public with this study? The American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

    Well then swell!

    If you would just eat right – or – eat foods that are healthy for you then we’re doing right??



    Folks, knock off these fad diets and eat REAL food!

    Fad diets belong exactly where they should be – in the trash can!

    Tant Pis!! (at least the French got this sh*t right back in the early 80′s!)

    The folks undergoing this should be people we pray for…

    I wonder how many will pickup on the obvious conflict of interest.
