Diet Drug Refunds
I think all drug-makers should be held to this. If the toxins you peddle don’t work, give people their money back. Julie’s Health Club talks about the refunds being offered for the diet drug Xenadrine EFX. Take a look:
The FTC alleged that Xenadrine EFX was advertised with false and unsubstantiated weight-loss claims, and its settlement with the marketers of Xenadrine EFX included money for consumer refunds.Government mandated refunds, yet another reason to be leery of drug-makers. Dr. Fuhrman certainly casts them a suspicious eye. From Eat to Live:
The refund is good through Sept. 15 and the amount will depend on the number of consumers who request refunds.
And while I like to see the FTC cracking down on false advertising, the "additional notes" on the company's Web site (below), should have been enough to discourage anyone from taking it in the first place. (Not surprisingly, the clickable categories "testimonials" and "clinical studies" are currently unavailable.)
New drugs are continually introduced that attempt to lessen the effects our nation’s self-destructive eating behavior. Most often, our society treats disease after the degenerative illness has appeared, an illness that is the result of from forty to sixty years of nutritional self-abuse.
Drug companies and researchers attempt to develop and market medications to stem the obesity epidemic. This approach will always be doomed to fail. The body will always pay a price for consuming medicines, which usually have toxic effects. The “side” effects are not the only toxic effect of medications. Doctors learn in their introductory pharmacology course in medical school that all medications are toxic in varying degrees, whether side effects are experienced or not. Pharmacology professors stress never to forget that. You cannot escape the immutable biological laws of cause and effect through ingesting medicinal substances.
