    I suggest folks read the other links on this web page.
    You'll likely save your self some $ and perhaps prevent the pruging of your wallet and be able to smell quackery better.

    Why do I bring this up here?
    Well, we have all seen some of this within our hobby and I can promise we shall see more.

    These are great articles, the second link is dead though. What was really ironically funny is the last one on hair has google ads that are from the very same sort of products that the site is about.
