Default Liposuction Doctor Used Fat from Patients to Power His Car

http://www.naturalnews.com/News_0006..._body_fat.html
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, December 24, 2008
Key concepts: Liposuction, Biodiesel and Body fat

It sounds like a great idea, actually: Take the excess body fat from liposuction patients and use it to power your car. That's what a Beverly Hills doctor figured, and he even bragged about it on his website LipoDiesel.com (now shut down). It even sounds like a California trend: Get thin and reduce America's dependence on foreign oil all at the same time!

But sometimes the "cutting edge" of green goes too far, and California's state medical authorities were not amused to learn of Dr. Bittner's eco-friendly body fat recycling program. It is apparently illegal in the United States to use human body parts (even the parts people are throwing away) as fuel to power automobiles. I'd like to see somebody quote me any law that actually says that, by the way. Personally, I don't believe such a law exists.

So now Dr. Alan Bittner's clinic is closed, and liposuction patients have to get their fat sucked out somewhere else. So where, exactly, does all that excess body fat go from liposuction clinics? If you saw Fight Club, you might recall the main characters rendering the body fat into high explosives. I like the Lipodiesel idea better, because it puts the excess body fuel towards a more productive use.

Instead of shutting down this operation, the state of California should embrace it. Why not do a joint venture with McDonalds? "Eat a Big Mac. You'll get a smile, and your car goes another mile!"

Besides, a nation full of fat people could serve as a reserve oil supply. If the Arab nations stop shipping us barrels oil, we can just start tapping into the population to power our cars with liposuction fat. And if we run out of body fat to process into diesel fuel, we can always eat more, right? Eating more junk food might actually become patriotic: "Snarf down some burgers and fries for your nation's energy independence!" Talk about Freedom Fries, huh?

Don't laugh, because I'm not making this up, but the human body stores so much energy that the town of Helsingborg, Sweden, uses the heat from local crematoriums to generate about 10 percent of the heat used its homes. Technically speaking, it would be a very simple matter for crematoriums to power steam turbines that generate electricity.

Although the idea may seem a little strange right now, it's not hard to imagine a future where people are either encouraged or forced to donate their bodies back to society upon their death by converting their physical body mass into usable energy. Dr. Bittner was merely doing that with patients who volunteered to use their liposuction fat to help power automobiles.

The exhaust of vehicles burning biodiesel made from fast food grease smells a bit like French fries. I wonder what Dr. Bittner's car exhaust smells like? Fried rump roast?

Hi Antaletriangle,

I've never used people fat to move my car, but I have used fat people (it's an old car). Is this the same?

Best regards,

Steve

Ultimately this is an ethical issue.
My wife and I debated both pro and con. The con side
comes down to ethics, the pro side favors utility.

Soylent green. Nothing goes to waste. How would you feel
about your barber using your hair to stuff pillows? How would you feel about the same barber using your hair in
his kinky sex fetish? Or your plastic surgeon's hobby of
making lampshades from skin, or reselling said skin to
industry and profiting without cutting you in?

Human waste products are normally incinerated. Is this
another form of incineration? It is a cultural ethical issue.

As such, the medical board would deal with this as an
ethics issue. The laws for handling human waste are strict and explicit. If nothing else, the board could nail him for moral turpitude.

Well, what I wanna know is... if running your car on biodiesel created from the waste fat that you get from your local fast food place leaves your car smelling slightly of french fries, what would a car smell like fueled from liposuction fat????

Just curious
