WEIGHT-LOSS DRUGS FOR CHILDREN



Some doctors are now prescribing weight-loss drugs such as Meridia and Xenical for children ages 12-16, as part of a new study to determine whether the medications are safe and effective for this age group. While I understand the use of such drugs as a last resort, it's hard to believe that adolescents have reached that point. And while these drugs have been shown to produce weight loss, little research has been done on whether the effects last after medication is discontinued. Wouldn't education and exercise be more useful tools at this age, rather than a drug regimen that may have to be continued indefinitely?

 
SORRY FOR THE DELAY....



Blogging has been delayed for the past couple of weeks, because I've been hard at work on our Accuracy in Academia Conservative University conference.
