The next announcement will be of FDA Panel and a green light to speculators to load up before FDA PANEL.
Make no mistake, we are going to SOAR as TREND is up.
There was no editing. I copied and pasted what were the relevant sections which concerned ETRM. Yahoo would not allow me to post the whole article due to constraints on wording and would not allow me to paste link.
Goes to show how worried you are about the TRUTH being declared by doctors.
Those were words of doctors and not mine, that is why APPROVAL will be done deal as VBLOC has diebetic benefits which FDA is seeking.

Weight loss is taking a back seat clinically to diabetes resolution

WASHINGTON — The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS; Gainesville, Florida) met here in mid-June with its new banner that added "metabolic" to its previous name, remarking on the newest understanding of the complexity of obesity.
No longer is it believed that a mechanical reduction of the size of the stomach, or bypassing part of the intestine, is the long-term cure for obesity.
This group of surgeons is dedicated to the treatment of metabolic disease and obesity, leading the path to better understanding of the root causes and then hopefully cures behind this worldwide epidemic that is caused by a plethora of various factors that are still baffling.
Previous thinking was that morbid obesity led to diabetes and could be cured by mechanically altering the alimentary tract, but current thinking proposes that it is a complex neuro-hormonal feedback to and from the brain and gut that allows for obesity and diabetes to occur, initiated by poor eating and exercise habits.
EnteroMedics (St. Paul, Minnesota), which has developed the VBLOC vagal blocking system and a neuromodulation system that is comprised of a pacemaker-type and leads that are implanted laparoscopically around the vagal nerve.
The company's intermittent vagal blocking system involves a less-invasive option to gastric bypass and lap banding and provides a means of tricking the alimentary tract into feeling full after a small meal. Should the patient's digestive system outsmart the sensory impulses delivered by VBLOC, the therapy can be non-invasively adjusted to a new waveform to which the digestive tract may respond more optimally.
Add my two cents to this article. ETRM has great diebetic and hypertension results.
Honesty begins by being transparent. A person who changes their id from penny_dreaddful to oozhe22 once uncovered as a PAID BASHER is deceitful. You refuse to divulge to me your name and phone number, the name and phone number of your employers, the name and phone number of your schooling establishments, an affidavit swearing under oath you are not a PAID BASHER.
Why do you refuse? If what you say is true, then it will remain true and I can verify doing my due diligence.
As usual, you are a COWARD hiding behind a computer screen making bogus allegations and meanwhile paid to deceive people.
One who accuses others of lying is using the ONE WHO IS LYING.
It is not nice the harm you are doing to others and rest assured YOUR SOUL will pay for these SINS by burning up in HELL. You will believe what I say when you arrive in HELL.
The Affordable Care Act (aka the ACA or Obama Care) goes into effect 8/1/2013) and more specifically in its attempt to tackle the 21st century obesity epidemic the new legislation requires employers to identify obesity in the workplace by using Body Mass Index (BMI), and to take actions designed to reduce obesity by enco
uraging (providing incentives for) employees to reduce their respective BMI scores.
That is an interesting article, first insurance must cover and now EMPLOYERS must help in treatment of OBESE people.
VBLOC device gets rid of obesity over time.....
I was surfing the internet and found an interesting article which states that under OBAMACARE insurance companies have to cover OBESITY so you can bet the farm that VBLOC will be in great demand which will halt this very expensive coverage due to an assortment of related problems that occur due to obesity. Article is current. Too long to post.
Here is the link:
Really, and did you tell them that you are a wolf in sheep's clothing, that you are a PAID BASHER hired by a Hedge Fund who is loading up and, that you are ripping innocent people off by making them sell their shares into institutions, to miss out on a rally and some money they may need in the future. Do you feel good doing Satan's work.
I made you an OFFER before, divulge me your name and phone number plus name and phone number where you worked, your schooling records and affidavit you are not a PAID BASHER.
As usual, the COWARD you are, you are going to ignore my OFFER.
Is 110 million OBESE USA Citizens big enough of a market for VBLOC at $ 10,000 per device meaning total market potential if they get 100% is $ 1,100,000,000,000.
Today, a third of Americans are obese, and two-thirds are overweight -- a distressing reality for many reasons. Obesity increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes, all leading causes of death in the United States. Managing the complications of obesity is also extremely expensive. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), obesity accounted for an estimated $147 billion, or 10 percent of the nation's medical costs, in 2008. More recent estimates suggest that annual obesity-related spending could be upwards of $200 billion.
Most efforts to address America's obesity epidemic have emphasized lifestyle changes: better eating habits, more physical activity. First Lady Michelle Obama has introduced a nationwide campaign against childhood obesity. Some states have begun requiring restaurants to post nutritional information (PDF) on their menus. Hospitals, insurance companies, and employers alike have implemented wellness programs that offer education and support.
For those already afflicted by obesity, however, behavioral adjustments alone may not cut it. In a study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, patients with obesity were given "lifestyle coaches" to help them lose weight. The result? After working closely with their coaches for two years, patients lost on average five percent of their body weight. But there were no significant changes in blood pressure, blood sugar levels, or cholesterol levels to suggest a change in the risk of obesity-related disease or death. The patients may have looked a few pounds lighter, but they didn't appear much healthier.
