Glib "Nutritious" Advertising to Fool People

A popular product promoted for its nutrition is "Ensure Powder". The manufacturer "formulates" similar nutrition products for babies and suckling infants too.

At the bottom of this post is this can's list of ingredients. Let's take a look at some.

The first three are all sugars. The federal rule is to list the ingredients sorted by weight in decreasing order. By breaking up the sugars into 3 types, it seems the sugar content thereby is reduced because each name is not immediately identified as a sugar by the often ignorant public. Still, here you have the top three ingredients being sugar. It may as well have been written as: "Sugar, Sugar, Sugar".

In other products that contain water they often pull the same trick. They manage to place water before the sugars - by separating the sugars into different types. But if you add all sugar weights together, sugar would easily take first place in the list of ingredients.

The fourth ingredient (really the second) is a fat. The next "nutritious" element is a sodium compound.

Soon after comes "Artificial flavor" - a laboratory chemical. Then come more sodium and sulfate products. There's even "Cupric Sulfate" among them; Last I checked, it's considered "too toxic for use"!

Of course, the best way to sell garbage is to have people praise it to the hilt, saying "how wonderful it is". Here, as an example, is this "review" by some lady when she fed this product to her grandchild:

Product Rating: *****
Pros: Greatly improves health
Cons: expensive
Bottom Line: It turned our little Kathie into a thriving ball of energy

Is it any wonder doctors live significantly shorter lives than the average lifespan!

Dementia - Living Proof it Exists

For those who haven't yet seen this, it's worth the 3 minutes.

Notice a few things: The woman may be pregnant, but what's certain is she has other children there with her when she exits the car. The Arab men know this too. And, note she has been treated for burns for 6 weeks in the hospital where she wants to commit the atrocity.
This is Arab, genetic dementia. What else can it be?

Golda Meir once keenly observed, about Arabs, "They hate Jews more than they love their children!"
