I would absolutely NOT use a feeding tube to lose weight quick! I don't believe that it would be a lasting weight loss solution, but, as you say, a "quick fix" that would temporarily replace the one weight loss program that actually works, i.e. healthy eating and exercise, which means, a lifestyle change, not a diet of any kind or this new feeding tube obsurdity!
How sad that our society has been reduced to this; that we are so obsessed with our looks that we would actually go to these extremes to lose weight; that we are so lazy and undisciplined that we'd rather stick a tube up our noses than live healthy!
There are a very small percentage of people out there who's obesiety is due to health reasons and no fault of their own; but for the majority of us, obesity is a consequence of our poor choices - choices about what we eat, how much we eat, and how much or if we choose to excersie.
It's a hard road to travel, but I believe that it's one that will make us all feel, look, and BE healthier!
I think healthcare should be free to all, like in other countries. Some might say that we would have less quality care and doctors unless we went to a private practice because docs would get paid more - true, that's why there should be no private practice, but it's all under one umbrella - no care better than the other. Of course, that's not going to happen and probably very unrealistic, but in the perfect world, maybe?View Thread
I heard this story and there's NO doubt in my mind that those parents were neglegent and it was their responsibility to take care of their child. The fact that they had no money was NOT an excuse! If you don't have money but have a sick child, then you ASK for help! You don't sit and do nothing, and then ultimately watch your child die horrific death! Jail is not enough punishment for those parents!
I think how much sex is in the media (TV, movies, Internet) it's a sad commentary on our society today. Many of our children are out of control because the parents don't take any responsibility for their roles as parents. Too many of them are far too concerned about being friends with thier kids rather than being thier parent.
So yes, I believe that there is far too much sex in the media. Sex has become a casual act from an early age onward rather than the expression of true love between two people.View Thread
