How unfortunate



How unfortunate



Nutrition today 21(5): 12-15



In order to acquaint readers with a multilevel marketing nutrition-related product, this article addresses product contents, as well as attempts to contact both company members and board members. The company, United States of America, Inc. promotes four products they consider to represent revolutionary nutritional breakthroughs: Master Formula containing vitamins and minerals, Calorie Control Formula, Fiber Energy Bar, and Formula Plus (a product containing omega-3 fatty acids). Attempts by the author to get meaningful information from the company and its scientific board have not been too successful. The conclusion is that naivete, ego-building, and a generous fee/research grant are responsible for leading scientists lending their names to unproven products, a situation that the author regards as unfortunate.(jd-b)
