From time-to-time, I am asked by a manufacturer, public relations firm, or editor of a nutrition website to review a new diet product. I usually follow Mom’s advice, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” In other words, I let the reader know if the product is harmful or unproven to work but, otherwise, I focus on the positive and keep it lite. To see what I mean, check out my article, Vaportrim Claims Smell can Trick Your Brain Into Being Full, for Diets in Review.
But I just have to share what I found out in doing a little background check on Vaportrim. As it turns out, in my humble opinion, the product is a small part of an immoral force. The patent for Vaportrim is held by a man who owns the Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network, a pay-per-minute porno site that services about 2,000 people a day at $11.95 a pop. He also owns the Real Touch virtual sex device to go along for the ride.
Internet porn is a serious new problem. It is highly addictive and it creates an inability for users to be turned on by real partners. Read about how Porn-Induced Sexual Dysfunction Is a Growing Problem in Psychology Today.
And so, the next time you see an ad for a silly diet product, consider that it may be tied to a nefarious operation.
Your thoughts: Are you surprised by what I’ve said?
