Bariatric surgery performed on 2-year-old proves total insanity of western medical system
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) A "morbidly obese" two-year-old has undergone bariatric surgery
in Saudi Arabia, doctors are now proudly reporting. This radical, permanent maiming of the digestive
system of a child was done, they say, after "dieting failed."
The press is reporting that the doctors in charge of this fiasco "...were unable to ascertain whether the child's parents stuck to the diet." This was apparently all the justification
they needed to permanently remove a crucial part of the child's digestive system.
So where do we begin with the insanity in all this?
First off, I'm pretty sure that two-year-old infants cannot hop in the car and cruise down to the
local McDonald's to buy a half-dozen Happy Meals.
I don't think there's any two-year-old who can whip out a credit card at the local buffet and snarf down five thousand calories a day.
So allow me to state the obvious: Two-year-olds
eat what you give them to eat, period!
If a two-year-old is "morbidly obese," then his parents are infinitely stupid. Were they spoon-feeding the kid ice cream all day long while asking, "Why is our child getting so fat?"
Are they really that stupid? And are the doctors so stupid that they can't simply tell the parents to stop feeding the little guy so much food?
Two-year-olds eat what you give them to eat
This isn't rocket science
here. Two-year-olds eat what you put in front of them to eat. They have no means to bypass their parents and gather food on their own. And let's also state the obvious that the doctors and the parents are too stupid to seemingly understand: children don't get fat through magic. It actually requires calories.
OMG! I uttered some wild, fringe theory! It actually takes calories to
make a child gain weight! The medical establishment is going to call me a "health hoaxer" for daring to suggest that obesity actually requires a cause.
Apparently, this simple idea somehow escapes western doctors. They must have tried to confuse
the parents with pseudoscience gobbledygook, saying things like, "It wasn't the calories, it was your child's GENES that made him fat!" ... as if the child had mutant powers to create calories from
air or something.
So lay me lay it out straight for everybody: You show me a morbidly obese two-year-old, and I'll show you a couple of moron parents. Actually, "moron" isn't even the right word. What these parents did is a form of
Dad: "Honey! Little Mohammed wants more pizza. Should we give it to him?"
Mom: "Yes, of course! But make sure he finishes before his appointment with the bariatric surgeon!"
Dad: "Why are we so unlucky
to have a child with an obesity problem?"
Mom: "I don't know, but the surgeon says he can solve it."
(... drives to the bariatric surgery clinic... )
Surgeon: "This is a mystery. We still cannot figure out why your child is so morbidly obese."
Mom: "I know, and we keep feeding him and feeding him all day long and he still won't lose weight."
Surgeon: "Hmmm... must be genetics,
Dad: "It's gotta be genetics. My dad was obese, too."
Surgeon: "Ah, yes. See, it runs in the family. So surgery is your only option."
Mom: "But doctor,
if we pay for the surgery, we won't have any money left to keep paying for the food he wants to eat all day long."
Surgeon: "Don't worry, you can apply for government food stamps. No child goes hungry in this country!"
According to the press, the bariatric surgery was a huge success:
two months the boy lost 15 per cent of his body weight and two years after the 2010 surgery his weight had fallen from 72 lbs to 52 lbs and his BMI of 24 was within the normal range.
Of course, you have to ask the question: How did
the bariatric surgery cause the boy to lose weight? By restricting his food intake -- a function that should have been carried out by his parents in the first place.
How do you restrict the food intake of two-year-olds? Stop
feeding them so much! Put down the pizza. Throw out the donuts. Stop fixing the kid a half-dozen sausages for breakfast. Exercisebasic parenting skills by setting boundaries (limits) for your child.
really too much to ask for today's parents? Any family with a two-year-old needing bariatric surgery probably also has a parent or two needing brain transplants.
You are witnessing a world of truly insane people
A world in which a two-year-old
has his digestive organs cut up by surgeons claiming to practice "medicine" is a world of insanity. Soon, we're all probably going to be told that "stomachs are bad" and that people born with stomachs must have them immediately cut out after they're born.
It will be like circumcision for your digestive system.
This is the entire model of western medicine: You are born a failed, broken biological system, they say, and you need immediate intervention to be healthy. Modern medicine tells you that
you're born with a faulty immune system and you therefore need vaccine injections. They tell you you're born with a faulty reproductive system and therefore need synthetic hormone fertility drugs. They say you're born with faulty cardiovascular organs and
therefore need blood pressure drugs and statin drugs.
This is a key idea of western medicine: You are born in "medical sin" and require immediate medical intervention to be "normal." And
this bariatric surgery on a two-year-old is the perfect example of just how totally insane the system has become. That fact that a group of doctors couldn't figure out this child was being made fat by food consumption is an outright
admission that western medicine is an absolute failure on the issue of obesity.
These doctors should have their medical licenses permanently revoked for actually encouraging parents to put their two-year-old through
surgery rather than demanding they simply, "Feed him less!" The entire weight problem of this little boy could have been solved with a simple 5-minute conversation about daily calories.
But instead, this two-year-old who has already been the victim
of junk food child abuse by his parents is also subjected to medical child abuse by surgeons. It's a double-decker catastrophe that could have been easily and safely avoided by doing nothing more than limiting the child's
That's western medicine for ya: Surgeons bragging about how they "heroically" saved this child's life when the truth is that they put his life at risk and permanently maimed him for life over a problem that could have been
solved with nothing more than good parenting.

Prescription drug death epidemic continues: Can Big Pharma be stopped?
by J. D. Heyes
(NaturalNews) Death by prescription drug continues to be a major health problem in the United States, as Big Pharma remains influential and dominant in traditional medical practice. But a noted neurosurgeon and contributing CNN health
expert may represent the first chink in Big Pharma's formidable armor, according to a recently published commentary he authored, in which he discussed the scope of the problem.
"It's the biggest man-made epidemic in the United States. That's how
a doctor in Washington state described it to me as we sat outside the state Capitol in Olympia," wrote Dr. Sanjay Gupta, in paraphrasing a discussion he had with Gary Franklin, medical director for Washington state's Department of Labor and Industries.
Franklin was lamenting a litany of "terrifying" cases where scores of innocent patients were killed by the very medications they had been prescribed, a worsening situation that had become "the saddest thing he had ever seen."
+ pain medications = Accidental overdose
In one particularly gloomy case, Franklin told Gupta about a teenager he'd heard about that had died after taking too much narcotic medication following a dental procedure.
common occurrences; however, according to Franklin, involve men in their 40s or 50s who went to see a doctor for back pain, and who then walked out of the office with a prescription for painkillers. An average of three years later, many of those same men die
in their sleep from taking too many pills and mixing them with alcohol.
They're not trying to kill themselves, say the medical professionals, but some 20,000 times annually, or once every 19 minutes on average, that's what happens.
It has become so common, in fact, that accidental overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental deaths in the U.S., passing up automobile crashes.
"As a neurosurgeon working in a busy level 1 trauma hospital, I had an idea that the problem
was growing - but the numbers still boggle the mind," Gupta wrote.
The numbers say it all. Distribution of morphine - the primary ingredient in the most popular of painkillers - has exploded 600 percent from 1997-2007, the U.S. Drug Enforcement
Agency says. TheCenters for Disease Control and Prevention has called accidental overdoses of prescription medication "an epidemic."
"In the United States, we now prescribe enough pain pills
to give every man, woman and child one every four hours, around the clock, for three weeks," Gupta says, adding that the problem usually only makes national headlines if a celebrity overdoses, not our close friends, neighbors or our own family members.
What brought the issue storming home for Gupta was a call from former President Bill Clinton:
He called me a few months ago, and I could immediately tell he was broken up about something. I had worked for him in the White House in
the late '90s, talked to him countless times since then, and I had never heard him like this. Two of his friends had both lost sons, he told me. The cause: accidental overdose.
Gupta says he'll never forget how the former president framed
"Look, no one thinks having a few beers and an Oxycontin is a good idea, but you also don't expect to die," Clinton said, according to the neurosurgeon and CNN analyst.
It was then that Gupta said he
felt a responsibility, as a medical expert and member of the media, "to shine a bright light on this issue and find solutions that work."
He notes that a good starting point would be to clean up our own act here in the U.S. He says 80 percent
of the world's pain medications are taken in the United States, based on figures from 2011 congressional testimony from the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians.
While there are no doubt legitimate cases for pain medication
intervention, Gupta says, culturally our nation has become so intolerant of even minor amounts of pain; we have in turn become entirelytoo comfortable with taking heavy-duty pain medications.
What's needed is to change doctors'
attitudes about pain treatment
What is probably less known; however, is that after just a few months of taking such medications, the body changes - it compensates for the over-medication, if you will.
The effectiveness of
the pain med "wears off," Gupta explains, "and patients typically report getting only about 30 percent pain relief, compared with when they started." What's worse, he says, "a subgroup of these patients develop a condition known as hyperalgesia, an increased
sensitivity to pain."
Gupta concludes that what really needs to happen is a sea change within the medical community regarding better, less dangerous ways to combat pain.
"In my upcoming documentary, I will explain how we arrived in
this deadly situation, but more importantly, explore solutions to address it," he says.
We here at Natural News will keep an eye out for it and bring you his findings.
