Science claims

PopSci has an article this month on the Science claims made by manufacturers. 106 claims are noted in a typical day, meaning that a normal person hears a science claim about once every 10 minutes -- mostly from advertisements.

Most of the claims are wrong in one way or another. Two of the more amusing are these:I hear the ad for Cortislim once or twice every day right now. Given the number of ads they are running, Cortislim must be making millions of dollars selling useless tree bark. Why do we allow companies to do that?
