Watch out for online diet scams

I have a friend who works for an internet marketing company. His company provides reviews of different dermatological acne care products, below all their reviews they include sponsored ads of products they are trying to sell.

As we talked, I was very surprised to find out that they employed students to quickly find internet products and crank out negative reviews. They don’t do much research, and they don’t have any background in the field. They just write content so people on the internet will find their website through the search engines.

This got me worried, I bet that people are out there right now cranking out dieting reviews, and churning out new dieting products. Please watch out for internet dieting scams. Because I am involved in this market, I see how many of the products are bogus or risky. When I consider a new product, I look at the scientific literature, the real world reviews, and the developers background. Be careful because in the dieting market there is little to no FDA regulation.

When you think you might have found the new, super-fix, dieting cure, think again. If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.
