Facebook Fan Page Today Health Fans posted a bogus and poor photoshop image Oprah to promote a weight loss drug called Garcinia Cambogia.
On Fitness Women Today, there are several “testimonies” to support the drug.
According to Dr Chen (The guest host on the popular Dr Oz show) Garcinia Cambogia works in more than one way, “The first way is it goes in and causes the body to burn glucose, or sugar, and burn fat, mainly in the liver…The second way, the most important way, is it slows the release of sugar into the blood stream. So when you don’t have sugar building up in the blood stream, you don’t have fat building up because sugar turns to fat…When the two are combined together, you get this synergistic effect that basically burns and blocks and stops fat, but it also is natural and safe.”
Facebook users immediately called out the page for it’s false promotion and unsubscribed.
