As obesity rates climb in Western cultures, so do the rates of those going under the knife to fight the fat. In the UK, weight loss operations are up 1000% in the last decade, reports the British Medical Journal. Bariatric surgeries remain a growth industry in the US as well, with 16,000 a year in the 1990s to over a quarter million a year by last year. Quite simply, gastric bypass surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures for weight loss, and it works by changing the normal digestive process, but with significant health side effects. In this audio health podcast, learn why so many people are hastily electing for this surgery, as well as the risks associated with gastric bypass surgery including stomach leaks, bowel blockages, gallstones, hernias, and the risk of developing a severe case of malnutrition. Listen to why Jon prefers a systemic approach to natural weight loss--from proper nutrition to stress reduction--and how you can avoid going under the knife.
