I saw that one the news. No. I would not try this. I see where it has possibilities but I would fear the rupture of the balloon and subsequent intestinal blockage it would create. Plus with the balloons bobbing around in there I can't help but think that might create some digestive discomfort.

Nope, I wouldn't and even if I wanted to, I couldn't cuz of heartburn.
