Weight loss surgery failure again as Andres Moreno died

New Obesity Campaign UK has been campaigning for years about the ill effect of weight loss surgery to lose weight.

Unfortunately many people can't see the ill effect of surgery because of the mass publicity of misleading benefits advertised by the obesity surgeons and associated industry.

Now again there has been fatal news after obesity surgery. A Mexican gentleman believed to be one of the world's most obese passed away in Mexico, just two months after undergoing a weight-loss surgery.

Andres Moreno, 38, died of a heart attack and inflammation of the abdominal lining in Sonora state, according to his grieving family. Andres had bariatric surgery on 28th of October 2015 in Guadalajara, Jalisco state, in hopes of losing weight and leading a normal life which most of weight loss surgeons offer.

The operation was considered a success but still gentleman ended up losing his life.

Generally in Bariatric surgery, a small pouch is made out of the stomach, to reduce the size of the stomach.  By reducing the size of the stomach, surgery restrict the amount of food one can eat at a time and hence the patient feels  full after eating only around 30% of the food they have consumed earlier.

“Not only weight loss surgery is unnecessary but also it deprives human being a normal life. People after surgery would never be able to enjoy their food ever for the rest of their life whether it is Christmas or they are on their holidays or their child birthday or any other festival.

List of problems and complications after the weight loss surgery operation are endless as one may get additional problems such as Hernia, Internal Bleeding, Swelling of the skin around the wounds, etc. I wonder how many weight loss surgeons advice about weight loss surgery to their own family members.”

Daily Hatha Yoga practice is good for bones -New Research

Another news consolidating the benefits of hatha yoga has been published.

According to the new research which took over 10-year time period on 741 people found that doing yoga every day helps in case of osteoporosis.

The participants of the study were older — the average age of the participants when the study started was 68 — and 83 percent of them had symptoms of osteoporosis.

Researchers measure bone density along with spine and hip X-rays at the beginning and at the end of the study. Subjects who practiced yoga regularly had improved bone density in the spine and femur.


Yoga Poses which were included in the daily practice were:

Tree, Triangle, Warrior II, Side-angle, Twisted triangle, Locust, Bridge, Straight-legged twist, Bent-knee twist, Corpse pose


Participants held each pose for 30 seconds. This news is certainly a inspiration for others to start yoga practice because in USA alone 54 million aged 50 and older are affected by osteoporosis and low bone mass.

The results were published in the journal Geriatric Rehabilitation.

Study co-author and back pain specialist Loren Fishman, MD, an assistant clinical professor at Columbia Medical School, said participants who regularly practiced yoga, “their spine got better in 10 years — it’s better than medicine can do,”.


Fishman says the more force you put on a bone, the more it reacts by building the bone — and yoga has the ability to put just enough pressure on the bones without breaking them.


Yoga become the latest victim of political correctness –Subodh Gupta

Yoga became the latest victim of political correctness in Canada as one university cancels yoga because it linked to cultural genocide.

People who took this decision to close yoga classes don’t even understand what filmsy reason they are using to justify their action and don’t even understand what yoga is.

The whole objective of hatha yoga system is to keep our body healthy (by proper blood circulation and strengthening of muscles) and mind relaxation which is achieved by breath awareness.


So the point of closing down yoga classes by linking it to cultural genocide is not only ludicrous but also reflects the ignorance as well as arrogance on the part of organizers.
