If you’re as sick as I am of the acai berry / resveratrol ads that have been infesting the Internet for most of the past year, you’ll be glad to read this:
NEW YORK — Talk show host Oprah Winfrey and television expert Dr. Mehmet Oz, a frequent guest on Winfrey’s show, sued more than 50 businesses on Wednesday, saying they had falsely claimed the pair endorsed various beauty products and dietary supplements.
Many of the acai berry weight loss and resveratrol ads imply endorsement from Oprah or Dr. Oz.
I’m no fan of Oprah, but I hope she wins. Acai berry as a weight loss supplement is a scam and therefore these companies making these weight loss claims need to be put out of business.
