Consumption is the problem, but Ozembic and Wegovy are not the solution. Relying on demonstrably dangerous drugs for weight loss (https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/ozempic-wegovy-glp-1-1.6988122#:~:text=Health-,New%20study%20ties%20weight%2Dloss%20drugs%20Wegovy%2C%20Ozempic%20to%20serious,obesity%20drug%2C%20Canadian%20researchers%20find) is a truly awful idea. Relying on long-term use of any drug for weight loss is asking for problems, and is not automatically linked to eating lower on the food chain.
