i think the that fact we grow and eat "pretendo-food" with litte nutritional values is a the root of so many of our health problems, including obesity. i think obesity is basically ppl starving to death - they keep eating and eating because they aren't getting the proper nutrition they should be from the food they eat. i know you agree with me about the quality of our foods.
as far as this hydrogel goes, well i guess in theory it COULD increase such things as anorexia. my point is that what we normally do is come up with some type of drug with horrible side effects and then push it on unsuspecting ppl and then get shocked years later when we find out they all suffered terrible ill effects. this hydrogel is totally non toxic, non addicting, and could possibly have good effects. so i think its just way better than most other obesity remedies that are normally marketed.
