A New Magic Pill for Weight Approved by F.D.A

The good ‘ol FDA in all it’s brilliance has done it again.

I got word of it today ..Boy…What does the FDA do?  I was totally amazed when I read the article released by the AP.

Just yesterday the FDA approved another new diet pill for doctors to prescribe to obese patients.

Here’s the news article… 

The new drug is called Belvig.

The FDA had denied approval for this drug in 2010 when scientists showed concerns that the drug may actually cause tumors in people.

FDA approval of Magic pill


But just yesterday the FDA approved this drug after “new information” was produced by the manufacturer.


Take the easy road for a year …Give me a F## Break 

The studies show that this drug has helped obese people lose as much as 5% of their body weight
within a year.

That means that a 300 lbs obese woman can lose as much as 15 pounds in a year.

Give me a 300 Lbs woman and I’ll help her lose 15 pounds in 2-3 weeks by two simple tweaks…

1. adding 15-20 minutes of walking to her lifestyle

2. cleaning up her diet

My point is this…

You and I know that fat loss comes from lifestyle change, exercise, and good nutrition.

BUT the general public doesn’t care.

All they’re going to see is the ten o’clock news when the talking heads tell them that the FDA has
approved a new weight loss pill.

Then they’re going to see the TV ads from this drug company touting the new weight loss drug
and encouraging them to “ask your doctor about it”.

The public is going to see hope in this drug.

But I have an ethical obligation to educate and enlighten you on this new drug and how like all other drugs that were once approved and are now banned, this may end up the same way.

And that ultimately the hope of losing a paltry 5% of your body weight within a year shouldn’t out weigh (pun intended)  the risk of side effects like potential TUMORS.

Facebook and tweet about this new drug and tell your people the truth before they hear the news and actually start considering Belvig as a viable option.
