Weight Loss 'Stomach Pump' Approved by FDA

Aspire Assist, a device described by some as a weight loss stomach pump, has been approved by the FDA. The Aspire Assist is like a reverse feeding tube. A port sits on the outside of the body that is connected to the stomach, but instead of putting food in, it is used to drain food out.
