Media Watch: Critiques of Prominent Articles and Broadcasts

A Critical View of the Health Infomercial Marketplace

Except for some exercise-related items that may work if the user does not become bored with them, few if any health-related products sold through 30-minute infomercials will live up to the claims made for them. In addition, many sellers fail to honor refund requests and/or make unauthorized credit card charges. This site provides investigative reports and other documents related to consumer protection. Meanwhile, the best way to protect yourself is to ignore all program-length (15 to 30-minute) health-related infomercials.
