Faiz described the increase in surgeries as «exponential,» but was unsure if it would continue

Dr. Omar Faiz, a consultant surgeon at St. Mary’s Hospital in London and colleagues monitored the number of weight-loss surgeries done in government hospitals from 2000 to 2008. Overall, they found 6,953 such operations were performed, including three different types of surgeries, all designed to shrink the size of the patient’s stomach.

In 2000, there were 238 weight loss surgeries, but by 2007 there were 2,543 such operations. The study was paid for by Britain’s National Institute of Health Research.

Faiz described the increase in surgeries as «exponential,» but was unsure if it would continue.

«We don’t know whether we’ve seen the summit of the peak, but the trend still looks to be going upwards,» he said. He said there were not enough data to know how many obese people were awaiting the surgery in England, but said the number of people getting the surgery was likely only a small proportion of those who qualified for it and wanted it.

Faiz and colleagues found that the majority of patients who got the weight loss surgeries were women and were from poorer areas. Most patients were in their 40s. The surgeries also appeared to be safe; the risk of dying one year after the surgery was about 1 percent. The study was published Friday in the medical journal, BMJ.

Since 2002, when Britain’s health watchdog recommended weight loss surgery for morbidly obese people, usually defined as those with a Body Mass Index above 40, there has been a sharp increase in the number of such procedures.

Some experts weren’t surprised by the figures and said the obesity epidemic was likely to accelerate the demand for such surgeries in the future.

«It’s very alarming that people have been allowed to get so fat without anyone intervening in time, said Tam Fry, spokesman for the National Obesity Forum, a British advocacy group. He was not connected to the BMJ study.

«The fat are getting fatter and fatter and the gap between the healthy and the very unhealthy is growing,» Fry said, warning that paying for more weight loss surgeries would be a huge burden for the British government. He said experts should focus on preventing obesity before surgery becomes necessary.

«People have the idea that they can eat and eat and then get (weight loss surgery) to solve the problem,» he said. «That will be disastrous both for 김제출장안마 the individual and for the state.»

The family was notified early Tuesday

A Yemeni mother who was denied entry to the U.S. under a controversial travel ban has been granted a visa and a travel waiver, the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) told CBS News.

CAIR had called for authorities to swiftly issue the visa to Shaima Swileh, a Yemeni national living in Egypt, so she can see her 2-year-old son Abdullah Hassan one last time.

The child, a U.S. citizen, has been on life support at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland for the past month. He was born with a brain condition that caused weekly seizures, 익산출장안마 according to his father, Ali Hassan. The Trump administration’s travel ban, which applies to travelers from mostly Muslim majority nations, has been keeping Swileh from entering the U.S. — «literally separating family from each other,» according to Hassan.

«I’m literally seeing my son dying in front of my eyes,» Hassan told CBS News’ Mireya Villarreal.

Hassan is a U.S. citizen living in Stockton, California. His son was born in Yemen and later became a U.S. citizen. In October, Hassan brought his son from Cairo to the U.S. for medical treatment. That was the last time the toddler saw his mother.

Doctors have indicated the child may not be able to survive on life support much longer.

CAIR told CBS News’ Villarreal that Swileh has been granted a visa for relatives of U.S. citizens and a travel ban waiver. The family was notified early Tuesday.

The travel ban includes certain exemptions and allows for waiver applications for undue hardship if entry is denied, if the admission is in the national interest and won’t pose a national security risk, according to the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

The visa Swileh was issued will allow her to stay in the U.S. regardless of what happens to the boy and continue with the process of becoming a citizen, Villarreal reports.

British Airways is investigating a false alarm that notified passengers of a London-to-Hong-Kong flight Tuesday that it was about to crash land in the sea, according to a Bloomberg report

British Airways is investigating a false alarm that notified passengers of a London-to-Hong-Kong flight Tuesday that it was about to crash land in the sea, according to a Bloomberg report.

When the 747 jumbojet was flying over the North Sea, 평창출장안마 an automated female voice announced: «This is an emergency announcement. We may shortly need to make an emergency landing on water.»

The 275 passengers were terrified. Passenger Michelle Lord said: «We all thought we were going to die,» according to British tabloid The Sun.

British Airways has apologized for any «undue distress» suffered by the passengers.

The Sun reported that the pilot hit the wrong button. But Bloomberg said a BA spokesman notified them that the button isn’t accessible to pilots in the cockpit, though it can be activated in a number of ways.

«Our cabin crew immediately made an announcement following the message advising customers that it was played in error and that the flight would continue as normal,» spokesman Richard Goodfellow said, according to Bloomberg.

Reuters reports an investigation is under way to determine whether the mistake was human error or a computer glitch.
