Why Does Saving the Environment Have to Be So Disgusting?

149adfdjpgA plastic surgeon out in L.A. has found an interesting alternative to unleaded fuel. Human fat!

Liposuctioning unwanted blubber out of pampered Los Angelenos may not seem like a dream job, but it has its perks. Free fuel is one of them.
For a time, Beverly Hills doctor Craig Alan Bittner turned the fat he removed from patients into biodiesel that fueled his Ford SUV and his girlfriend’s Lincoln Navigator.
Love handles can power a car? Frighteningly, yes. Fat—whether animal or vegetable—contains triglycerides that can be extracted and turned into diesel.

Hey! Tummy tucks for everyone! It’s good for the environment, although I’m not so sure how I’d feel about polluting the environment with my leftover pizza.
