+David L Katz MD MPH gets it right: we can nurture our very nature, but implantable electrodes for obesity, though they may be paid for by insurers, are no match for what really works: lifestyle medicine and culinary medicine
A new medical device is hardly the answer to the country's obesity epidemic. ;
