Fat for Fuel
Biodiesel fuel is considered to be more environmentally friendly than gasoline and different sources such as algae, beef tallow and corn have been tied as an alternative form of fuel.
Dr. Craig Alan Bittner, a Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon found a new form of fuel right in his practice. Liposuction fat! He made fuel for his girlfriend's SUV from the extracted fat of patients. Apparently he had more fat than he could use.
This doctor is under investigation by the California Department of Public Health because it is against the law to use human waste as fuel. Who knew? His fat for fuel escapades were unveiled when he was sued by several patients for letting his unqualified girlfriend assist in operations that left patients "disfigured".
The entrepreneurial doctor has left the country for South America.
