CHICAGO - Doctors are testing a new kind of obesity surgery without any cuts through the abdomen, snaking a tube as thick as a garden hose down the throat to snap staples into the stomach. The experimental, scar-free procedure creates a narrow passage that slows the food as it moves from the upper stomach into the lower stomach, helping patients feel full more quickly and eat less.


Perhaps it's just me but I think I would rather have a scar than a garden hose forced down my throat. If I was obese; which I'm not.

OK, I'm 20lbs overweight but that's not obese. I am going to ride my bike more and slow down on the Chips and cheese dip.
