    Stomach stapling for Britain's youngsters on the NHS

    I think it's a rather drastic measure to allow obese youngsters to have stomach stapling surgery on the NHS, given the NHS crisis, and the fact that there are less drastic alternatives to the problems of obesity, the Independent has this report:

    Under new proposals children as young as 14 may, in extreme cases, be offered surgery, while those as young as 12 could be offered anti-obesity drugs. The guidelines were put forward by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) in a report on UK obesity and will now be put out to a two-month consultation.
