Low "T", Low Testosterone - and similar scam products

actually affects very, very few men and the
advertisements enormously hype both the prevalence and
the effects of their "products".
- Kinoki Foot Pads - to remove body toxins by drawing them through
the skin in your feet into a fabric pad. We thought about writing a
page about this, but honestly it's just so idiotic, that if you buy them, you
probably also have a Q-Ray bracelet in drawer and nothing we could say would
convince you that they are worthless. With regard to the Q-Ray, the FTC filed a complaint with the courts
on May 27, 2003, after several months of investigation and preparation for
this page on the FTC.gov website ). Remember, just because a product is advertised on TV
does NOT mean that its claims are true or approved by any government agency.
They can say whatever they like in an advertisement, and hope the government
doesn't notice or have the resources to go after them. But if you like to call Kinoki up just to express how you feel about their
product, here is their phone number: 888-338-6921. Being such a reputable
company, we're sure they'd love to hear from you about how happy you
are with their product.
