What is their thyroid function? Do they have an enlarged thyroid goiter? What is their blood surgery level and does it fluctuate throughout the day? How frequently do their bowls move? Are they depressed or abused at home.? Medication is the last thing to give to a child! Surgery is the last thing to do to a child! Big Pharma and the Surgeons are supporting child abuse!
Pharmaceutical companies are losing their biggest base, the baby boomers. Now they are aggressively targeting a new group, your children. Gen x was so medically neglected that they don’t usually go to the doctor and they’re not pharma indoctrinated so they’re not a good target.
What trash recommends this?
To have made such advancements in medicine & medical procedures, the population is not healthy at all. Now it sounds like they are starting drug dependency even earlier. Why take the time and attention to prepare healthy meals? Why moderate what and how much is eaten? Why should people have to exercise? Why do these things when you can take or be given a pill or undergo surgery to appear fit & healthy? All of the sugar free gum products, sweeter than ever taste wise contain xylitol. It is an antibiotic used to treat middle ear infections but has been shown to reduce cavities. Instead of teaching children restraint along with better oral care habits. Reducing the amount of bacteria in people’s mouth while taking “probiotics” to replace the bacteria in their gut. Coming up with a cure for disease while questioning why a more contagious or deadly version appears to replace it. Giving drugs to treat an illness, but those drugs can cause life threatening disease. The percentage of infant and maternal death, as well as the incidents of birth injuries rise as women are “scheduled” to deliver their babies by C- section. That vastly reduces the chance that a doctor may have to leave the golf course or have their weekend interrupted by something as incidental as a new life arriving. To be so intelligent and yet so damn dumb has got to be a purely human condition.
Tyson injects its chickens with hormones to get them plumped up for more money. Then yall dont understand why you blow up like a industrial raised chicken.
Eat healthy. Exercise. Normal portions of food.
Drink a pound of water before eating and lose weight for nothing.
Maybe the problem is laziness? If your son our daughter is over weight, maybe get them off video games, cable tv and their phones and actually go outside and play. Maybe even start telling them no to the extra cookies after supper. That’s a good start.
Do you love your children?
If I wanted to READ an article I would pull one up. But seeing as how I’m on YouTube, I don’t understand why Forbes is so dang lazy they can’t get one of their people to actually read this out. I’m on YouTube for a reason.
Violent push back seems inevitable.
Or rollover again.
Sounding like this treatment, over prevention, is to curve successful studies momentarily, of a widely spread Obesity epidemic, that isn’t being handled.
How bout fixing the economy so families can afford to buy the good and right foods to put on the table for their families and teach skills like they used to in school even to teach about eating the right foods! Stop pushing quick fixers like surgery for it!
Don’t do it losing weight is a mind game. It can’t be done with pills or surgery you have to do it yourself.
This world is so outta hand right now…. Makes me sick that there is no sense of personal responsibility left….
If America really wanted to fix this they would stop pharmaceutical companies from funding our medical universities and research.
How about recommending exercise…..A kid 10 pounds overweight when I was a kid was considered a Fat Freak.
Parents have no time for their children. Never Cook from scratch, this is the american dream to enslave for material things. NO strings attached for the entre family. Keep eating junk food. The hamburger, hot dog, pizza, pasta, hot cakes, donut, pastry, cereal country. And sweet drinks!!!! Tv SPORT, tv games, while eating. Why? Because parents had a stress full day.
No Children fiscal Activity and not good food 🍲 is problem Im Older generation help Parents and outdoor Activity older generations not remember Video game and remember help parents
Money. Just anouther market to tap into. No good doctor would recommend this over diet and exercise.
