FDA: Dieters should stop Hydroxycut use now!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration advises consumers to "immediately stop" using Hydroxycut weight-loss products amid concerns they may cause jaundice and liver failure...

Wonder how Charlene Chao feels about this? She's the Michelle Malkin lookalike (at least in the magazine ads) who appears in ads for HYDROXYCUT "used by millions to lose weight fast."

Ms. Chao looks pretty healthy to me, but her page on the hydroxycut website has been removed and here's what remains of the cache: Weight-Loss Success Story Charlene Chao Weight Loss Transformation

Ms. C does have a nice Friendster page you might sample, and, before it's gone too, check out her MySpace page... which features video of a TV commercial she appeared in.

  1. This doesn't surprise me at all. I am actually looking up ads that are unethical. I typed in weight loss ads and this is the page it took me to. This was exactly what I was looking for. This is perfect for my school discussion board. This is false advertising at its best!! Thanks! Michele

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
