April 2008 - 60 minutes Gastric Bypass

Greetings! Just wanted to let everyone know that this Sunday April 20th 60minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl reports on the effects of GastricBypass.  60 minutes will air this sunday at 7pm on CBS (channel 2 inNew York).

I have no idea if this will be a positive or negative story, butit will be interesting to see how the mainstream media protrays thesurgery and its benefits.  Unfortunately the media sometimes focuseson  extreme or unusual cases and makes it seem as if those cases are”normal”.  Anyway I just wanted to pass it along as I assume there isan interest.
