I think this is going to turn out to be another bad FDA decision.

I really hate the idea that with a pill(s), we don't have to take responsibility for our actions, or lack there of. I guess I am old fashioned.

When I read these stories of people getting into the Guinness Book of Records for being fat I just shake my head. People like that can't even buy their own food, need special beds where they then lie 24/7, and special transport to get anywhere. Who is feeding these people to death? Why isn't it considered a crime?

Sorry for the thread drift.
