And people wonder why we have an obesity epidemic. : Go ahead, keep on eating those happy meals every day, chomp on steak every night for dinner, and if you get overweight and unhealthy and heart-disease ridden, it is ok! You don't have to eat better or exercise because we have a vaccine for that now! UGH!

Ex-freaking-actly : .

Artherosclerosis has been an issue in my family . This is terrifying. How much more abuse can the human body endure? Don't take the time to put in the work to try and be as healthy as possible, take this pill/shot/whatever .

The injection of this fragment (a procedure called active immunization) triggered the production of antibodies, which determined the reduction of the atherosclerotic lesions up to 70% and the stabilization/regression of the plaques.
What exactly are those antibodies supposed to attack in the atherosclerotic lesions? The lesions are not made up of ONE component, are they?

Sounds like a very bad idea to me. Intentional autoimmunity?
And I'm sure that the 2 week post licensing study will scientifically prove that there's nothing adverse or unexpected that's going to happen there.
