The Unhealthy Fight Against Fat
The latest cure-all miracle pill on the market is Edita Kaye's Skinny Pill for Kids. It's promoted as a weight-loss pill concocted from all-natural ingredients - and they claim it's a totally safe way to shed those excess pounds. The only problem is, the Skinny Pill for Kids has never actually been tested on kids. So how do we know they're safe?
It often takes years, if not decades, to realize the full effect of new drugs. Even natural substances have been found harmful - sometimes years after they had been on the market. Edita Kaye has been working on the Skinny Pill for Kids for just six months.
Edita Kaye slams professional health experts on her Web site, saying that their advice of eating healthier and getting active just isn't realistic. Is it just me, or are people looking more and more for the quick fix? Are we so opposed to changing our lifestyle of fried food and video game marathons, that we are willing to take mystery drugs from any one who will sell them to us?
What do you think about the Skinny Pill for Kids? Is it a good solution to obesity in America or just another marketing ploy to get people's money?
