I know this may come as a shock to you, but the FTC has filed complaints against those infomercial-marketed excercise belts that induce “electronic muscle stimulation.” I don’t know about you, but I was dismayed and crestfallen to learn of this.
Quote (from adage.com):
The FTC alleges the marketers falsely claimed that users could get “six pack” or “washboard” abs without exercise, and that they “misrepresented” their “money-back guarantees.”
How low have we sunk as a society. I mean, if you can’t trust infomercials which promise “washboard abs without exercise,” then who can you trust. Guess I’ll have to sell mine on ebay.
