Above, click on blue for the three separate links to current articles featured in Medscape. Please read all three, and then synthesize the information to help you formulate your own opinion, providing support addressing whether you learned anything of value regarding cardiovascular health. Was any of the information you learned surprising to you? What do you think is the best way to protect one’s cardiovascular health and wellness? Do you think that the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) has erred in approving the use of Belviq based on the manufacturer’s claim that it does not increase cardiovascular risk factors? Or, do you think that the cardiovascular risk factors associated with morbid obesity outweigh the risks of using Belviq for those who might be able to benefit through weight loss?

cardiovascular risk factors? Or, do you think that the cardiovascular risk factors associated with morbid
obesity outweigh the risks of using Belviq for those who might be able to benefit through weight loss?
