I just received an e-mail that perhaps some of you might also have received. The text is reproduced here, minus the name of the wondrous product being pitched:
Besides the spelling and grammatical errors, the author of this e-mail claims to have become severely anemic while on the product - a hemoglobin level (a test for anemia) of 14 is normal, and 7.5 is at a level that blood transfusions are recommended.
Or did he mean to say that his hemoglobin A1C (the test for diabetes control) decreased from very high to nearly normal in two months? Well, that's simply unbelievable; A1C levels may decline some over two months, but the only way to go from that high to near-normal in two months would be (a) lots of insulin, (b) laboratory error, or (c) a flight of imagination.
I went to the website he mentioned, and learned
Well, finally, the rationale: he wants to supplement his income, not be chained to an office, and to enjoy life.
But I then Googled a key phrase from this testimonial, and, as expected, found several other websites where several other distributors used exactly the same words to describe the "effect it would have on my life." Somebody's plagiarizing, methinks.
Well anyway, the moral of the story: don't believe a word of this. It's an attempt to separate you from your money. And nothing more.
