Surgeon uses Human Fat to run Cars

Human fat runs cars
A surgeon in the U.S. has reportedly been taking fat from patients, and using that fat to help power several cars. According to reports, Dr. Craig Alan Bittner, a former Beverly Hills plastic surgeon used fat from his patients to not only power his girlfriend’s SUV, but his Ford SUV as well.

Bittner took the fat from patients during liposuction procedures which were carried out in Beverly Hills, California. Liposuction is a procedure that removes pockets of fat from areas such as the thighs, hips, abdomen, and upper arms. Under California law it’s illegal to use human medical waste to power vehicles.

Many of his patients have filed lawsuits against the U.S. surgeon. The lawsuits were due to claims that he allowed assistants and girlfriends to carry out surgeries without the proper medical licensing. 

According to reports the California Department of Health has opened an inquiry on the matter. Bittner has since ended his practice, but has stated on his web site that the majority of his patients asked that he "use their fat for fuel." He also claims that he has "more fat than I can use," and that it could actually save the Earth.
