As we are now well into the 21st century, there are more weight loss options available than simply ‘going on a diet’. Doctors and scientists are working hard to create a solution to the obesity epidemic and, to be honest, the latest developments are frightening!
Recently, in the USA, a stomach implant has been invented to help people lose weight. Known as the Abilitit system, a collection of several electronic devices are implanted into the stomach and intestines of the overweight person and a sensor will detect when food is being eaten. A message is then transmitted that the person feels full, even though only a small amount of food may have been eaten, thus ‘tricking’ the brain into curbing the appetite.
Maybe the movie ‘Robocop’ was based on reality after all??
While the developers of this technology claim this is a much ‘safer’ medical weight loss procedure than gastric banding, I have grave concerns about anything ‘foreign’ being implanted in the body particularly anything electronic!
