Injecting Botox Into Stomach Does Not Promote Weight Loss – Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology as well as American Gastroenterological Association

So, apparently researchers have been testing ways to delay gastric emptying and increase the feeling of being full. Attempts to inject botulinum toxin A was shown to help delay gastric emptying but did not allow obese individuals to feel more full or lose weight.

It’s crazy to think about injecting botox into someone’s stomach to help them with their eating habits and weight loss. Oh science and their attempts to help obese individuals. It blows my mind what attempts are being made.


Gatorade to remove controversial ingredient by Candice Choi

Not sure if any of you have been following the consumer complaints against gatorade and the ingredient BVO (Brominated Vegetable Oil) and it’s flame retardant characteristics. After the many complaints, PepsiCo Inc. is removing the BVO from Gatorade. Unfortunately, Gatorade is not the only drink to contain this ingredient as Powerade also contains BVO. BVO is banned in Japan and the European Union. BVO is used as an emulsifier which helps the mix of the liquid so it is evenly distributed. Fanta, Mountain Dew, Snapple, Sun Drop and Squirt are also among the other drinks containing BVO.


Claire Squires inquest: DMAA was a factor in marathon runner’s death by BBC News London

If you’ve been a reader, you may remember my post about the marathon runner, Claire Squires that died running the last stretch of the London Marathon. A news release has come out stating that the drug DMAA was found in her system and could be a factor that led to her death. DMAA was not banned in the UK at the time of her race. DMAA is a dietary supplement that has effects much like caffeine. It’s abbreviations come from it’s 1,3-dimethylamylamine structure. DMAA has been recalled in the US Military as it has links to fatal heart attacks of two US soldiers. DMAA is found in the dietary supplement Jack3d which is what Claire Squires had in her water bottle to help get her through the 26.2 journey and she had stated she would drink it if she “hit the wall.” This one scoop of Jack3d in her water bottle is being questioned as the resulting factor for her death because Claire also had a heart condition and it cannot be completely determined that the DMAA was the reason for her death, it is just a possible factor.
