Govt considers free weight loss surgery

Govt considers free weight loss surgery – Yahoo!7 News: “The proposal has been lodged with the Victorian government and comes as medical experts trial the surgery – which constricts the stomach to reduce hunger – on 25 Victorian teenagers as young as 14.”

Sorry, I think this is absolutely wrong. Very wrong and I cannot believe adults would sanction weight loss surgery on children. I think we need a good look at their diet and life style and teach them how to grow into sane, sensible adults who will not be looking for the quick fix. I am scandalised. What happened to common sense?
