Ear stapling for weight loss

Just thought I would toss a topic out there. Doing a little moonlighting this weekend, and a topic arose with the nursing staff. One of them recently got the cartillage of both ears stapled with a stainless-steel staple. This is supposed to help with weight loss. Supposedly, this causes appetite suppression via some acupucture stomach point in the ear. I'm not certain if is the cure for obesity, but I am certain that it will add to our CA-MRSA skin infections. Here is one of many links on the topic.

Mind over Matter.

I like the part about the staple working for 2-3 months then it has to be replaced. I didn't know the electromagnetic properties of metal rings could be depleted so quickly.
