A new reader, Kathryn, who was angered by my post exposing the OHS scams, has done some Internet noodling for herself and uncovered a whole new series of stuff (thank you, Kathryn!). I am working to get the whole list together. If you are interested in helping, please e-mail me, because there is a LOT of stuff here and I have been extra seizurey of late, therefore my concentration and attention span is particularly poor right now.
You know, when I was initially doing the research on scams, I was saying to myself there had better be nothing in here claiming to cure Autism or Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Because that, my friends, would have angered me beyond reason. I was quite angry enough at the whole "rat poison and hairballs as a cure for Parkinson's thing. I think had I found an 'AutieTab' or similar, I would probably have started shopping for explosives and booking a flight to Norway.
So I am glad that enough time has passed now since I finished part III, for me to look this little beastie in the eye and only get mad enough to turn the air a nice dark shade of indigo...
Hey, guess what? Danlotab is a completely guaranteed and clinically proven herbal treatment for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome! Now where did I hear THAT before? Oh, I dunno... Only about 70 other places!
The audacity of these people just floors me. I mean, it floors me each time. I just don't get immune to this, ever. And every time I think I have found them all, and reached the end of this story, another thread shows up. I pull on the new thread only to find it is attached to a whole set of other threads and the web just gets bigger and bigger... I wonder how many people work fulltime to perpetrate these scams? And I wonder what they would achieve if they used their powers for good? Because this operation, for all it's ignoble, low-lived dispicability, is actually quite clever and probably requires quite a lot of resourcefulness and ingenuity to run.
But instead, they choose to single out the sick and vulnerable, shamelessly lie to them and try to scam them out of their dwindling cash.
Anyhoo... back to Danlotab:
I immediately recognized the ingredient list, of course. It is our old friend formula #2, also marketed as Pileen in Pakistan, for the treatment of piles (hemorrhoids), and apparently re-branded by Oslo Health Solutions (for it is they, of course) as a treatment for -not only EDS, but also as a "guaranteed and clinically proven" treatment for Arachnoid cysts, Ascites, Multiple System Atrophy. Chordoma, Chronkite-Canada Syndrome, Teething (really!), Muscular Fasciculation, Horner's Syndrome, Lenox Gastault Syndrome, Megaloblastic Anemia, Myelodysplastic syndromes, Benign Essential Blepharospasm, Pseudotumor Cerebri, Enlarged Tonsils, Spasmodic Torticollis, Benign Essential Tremor, Kugelberg-Welander Disease (i.e. SMA type III), and Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome.
Its unbelievable, isn't it?
I do ask all my EDS friends NOT to buy this product and to spread the word that this is a scam.
...and keep watching this space. Because there is more to come on this topic.
A lot more, unfortunately.
