Here's a nice little crackpot ad from a magazine. I removed all of the contact information so it doesn't break the advertising rules on here. This is just for humor value.

That's pathetic. But what's more pathetic is that there are people out there that will believe it.

Which is why the perpetrators of this fraud deserve 15-20 years.

That poses a really good question, why is this type of obvious fraud legal?

I am thinking the same thing. There seems to be a snake oil remedy for just about every malady known to man. I have even been getting some of the ads in my snail mail.

Art thou an officer?
Or art thou base, common and popular?
Henry V, 4. 1

I think anything with popular in the title is probably going to be base by default. Not wanting to sound snobbish myself but science is somewhat elitist. It's a fairly narrow group which is why many people would fall for that nonsense.
