    Hi there

    Has anyone purchased these books that are advertised on FB. I'm 100% sceptical and cannot find any independent reviews online. If anyone has purchased these I would like to know the results?

    The books are by Dr Robert O. Young, M.S., D.Sc., Ph.D.
    Regards

    Along with Quackwatch

    I also like http://www.hoax-slayer.com/ and http://www.snopes.com/

    Not specifically health related but great for those crazy email and Facebook posts that tell you it's Zero Gravity day next week etc

    I'm a natural born sceptic.
    I also quite like to prove people wrong...........

    I was at a business networking event this morning and a gentlemen was talking about 'Amazing Molecules' ([link removed - please don't post links to commercial websites]). I assume this is some sort of pyramid selling scheme. Has anyone come across redox signalling? I've never heard of it. If anyone has taken any it would be interesting to hear about the effects? It may just be salt water as he wouldn't let me have a free sample :)

    Just received his email..
    Hi Paul

    Good to meet you today and thanks for your time. It is quite a challenge trying to explain the extent of the ASEA product in 40 seconds or for that matter in a 1-2-1 session. I hope that I have caused you to have some curiosity and an interest to look into it more deeply.

    If you visit [link removed] there is a product section on the home page and The ASEA Breakthrough will explain the science. In the video section lower down the home page there is the Metabolite Study which explains the findings of an independent research project at one of world’s leading Human Performance labs. This focuses on the benefits for athletes and people that work out but it also explains that ASEA has a positive impact on our bodies within 7 days, whether we are athletes or not.

    The most frequent benefits that people using ASEA find are improved sleep quality, increased energy and greater mental clarity.
    Based on my criteria (ASEA is applicable to any human being!) you will know people that would benefit from taking ASEA. I would put them into 4 categories:

    People that are proactive in managing their health (they watch what they eat, drink loads of water and take plenty of exercise)
    People with unresolved health problems (and maybe stuck with taking medication / pain relief for life)
    Athletes / sports people interested in gaining some competitive edge or just improving fitness levels
    People looking for additional streams of income

    Feel free to fire any questions at me as they arise.
    Look forward to catching up on Thursday between 9 and 10

    Most of the income earned by people who have these 'wealth generation ideas' is made from attendance fees, dvd and book sales. They never make much from the idea as it is presented.

    Most of the attendees who claim to make money by following the advice have spent considerably more on seminar fees and buying the books and/or dvds. Yet, they delude themselves into thinking that they are in profit.

    The easiest way to make money is to exploit other people's weaknesses, fast/junk food being an example.

    Hi guys, just a quick note: please don't post links to the offending websites here. Doing so will only help them gain more publicity. Thanks!
