September 30th, 2004 the FTC brought a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles against the makers of Cortislim and Cortistress for bogus claims regarding their products.
The lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount of money to be refunded to customers who bought the pills, so if you did purchase these pills I’d check at the FDA’s website to see what you need to do to make a claim.
The FDA sent Window Rock, the parent company, a warning in August, 2004 that unsubstantiated claims that CortiSlim “eliminates cravings” and “controls appetite” violated federal law.
Another product Window Rock marketed in the past, CortiStress, is said to have made false claims that it would cut the risk of obesity, cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Sheesh. They shouldn’t be surprised they’re getting sued.
What’s sad is these companies flourish and continue to flourish, despite the illegal claims simply because they can make millions of dollars before the FDA closes in. In many cases the FDA never does catch up with them becaues there are so many products and companies cheating the public at any given time.
Remember, there is no product, pharmaceutical or otherwise that will magically make you thinner. There isn’t likely to ever be such a product either, because every time they think they have some “miracle cure for obesity” it turns out to cause some other dread disease or death. Neither of which we want.
Instead how about learning EFT and NLP techniques (such as you’ll find at my site, OneMoreBite) and at least you wont’ be one of those taken in by the false claims and promises.
