    Very interesting it's certainly less risky than some of the drugs out there.

    Unfortunately, it's probably just going to be seen as another easy way out for weak-willed people, like the gastric bypass.

    Surely it's the "will" to eat that's stronger than the "will" to not...food is just that good...mmmmm.

    But it's less risky, there is no alteration to your current anatomy, and it's reversible. Now if someone could find a way to do it without surgery at all, then it might be become more popularized
