Excuse Me While I Go Drain My Food


File this in the WTF column but the FDA has approved a device called AspireAssist which “consists of a thin tube implanted in the stomach, connecting to an outside port on the skin of the belly.” Patients “connect the port to an external device, which drains some of the recently-consumed food into the toilet.”  You know, I thought his was a prank or someone trying to go a Placebo Journal bit but no.   This actually a real version to purge yourself but instead of vomiting there is a food drain spout.  I am too flabbergasted to comment anything at this time.  What do you think?
