The ’empirical’ truth

The word ‘MAY’ was used in 59 out of 97 ads that I recently watched over a 24hr period on one channel alone.

Everything from hair, skin, and other beauty products, child milk supplements, vitamins, minerals and other homeopathic additives and consumables and even pet foods.

So much crap with no scientific evidence pushed on a gullible society; a world-wide, billion dollar ‘snake oil’ industry.  Forbes reports it’s a $32billion industry in the USA alone.

[product] MAY help with ….

[product] MAY increase ….”

On and on the bullshit continued.  The goal was to watch 100 commercials but I only got to 97 before I took some product that may have provided a “healthy nights sleep” but I stayed playing hearthstone.

Thoughts?
