Balloon-in-a-Pill Solution to Weight Loss?

Debunked by LabShapers

A balloon-in-a-Pill swallowed and filled with gas reminds us of… that Sigourney Weaver alien movie. What the hell!

These balloons should help obese people lose nearly 7 percent of their body weight. Patients swallow a capsule containing a balloon tethered to a small catheter. Once it’s reaches the stomach they blow it up with a nitrogen mixed gas. Got a match anyone?

Let’s go out with a nitro-bang!

After the procedure the test subjects also got weight loss counselling. And with some “correct nutrition” (and nitro balloons of course) they lost a few pounds. Of all the madness out there, this is most ridiculous invention we have ever seen. Jeopardizing your life, Let’s go out with a bang!

Removed through an endoscopy

Oh yeah after six months, all balloons are removed through an endoscopy, Flexible tubes inserted in your mouth and into your stomach. They even dare to call this “non-invasive”. Available by the end of the year 2016! X-mas present maybe? Keep it safe people and take the time to do your research.
