Weight Loss Surgery Saves Lives

A new German study published in the "Lancet" says that more and more people are living longer because of weight loss surgeries.

Weight loss surgeries have increased more than five times within the past five years in most developed countries. The report says that even though all surgeries carry some risk, weight loss surgery appears to be reducing the death rates among the very obese by 30 to 40 percent.
