With obesity on the increase and GMO's being proven as a key cause, natural alternatives to pills and drastic surgery seem a much healthier, less invasive option.
Obesity is on the increase. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 35.7% of American adults are obese . GMO foods have been named a major factor in this increase. According to a Norwegian study undertaken over 10 years, it was found that animals in this test that were fed GMO corn, gained weight faster and retained it for longer, compared to those fed a non-gmo diet. 
There are a number of diet fads, miracle pills claiming to make you lose weight quickly and expensive surgeries such as gastric bands. However the risks of using these methods can be costly to both one's health and bank balance.
