JUST saw a commercial for the weight loss drug Alli.
While I’m not going to get into the mentality of the magic pill, I’m going to point a few things out.
The commercial is full of nonsense.
First, the lady states: “I know it’s safe because it is approved by the FDA…”
Cigarettes are approved by the FDA. Alcohol is too. How many weekly deaths do each of those cause?
Oh, they also once approved Phen Phen.
If something is FDA approved, it does not mean it is safe – it simply means that the company who brought the product to the market has the money to pay lobbyists to get the product federal approval.
At the end of the commercial, the lady states “My husband is a doctor, if it wasn’t safe, he wouldn’t let me use it…”
Really? The same husband that stood by and let you become morbidly obese?
Taking a pill for fat loss is the equivalent of refilling your car with oil every time you drive it because it is leaking – you’re not fixing the root problem (thus, not solving the problem).
Another garbage pill put out by big medicine. Unless they come up with a pill that improves discipline and work ethic, buyer beware.
