TRŪ Chocolate - TRŪ Bullshit

Postby Doc Bunkum » Sat Mar 07, 2009 4:52 pm

See there's a new company promoting miracle weight loss eating their chocolate -
* Some people are losing up to one pound per day following this plan, results will vary.


Very flashy official website - TRŪ Chocolate

I developed a serious infection when my dog scratched my gum. Antibiotics didn’t heal it for over 10 months. Surgery to remove the damaged gum was suggested by my Dentist. I started eating 2 Tru Chocolates a day and in about 60 days it was 99% healed with no plaque build-up. My Dentist was amazed, I did not need the surgery and I lost 25 pounds.

I am 45 years old and have had a massive craving for sweets most of my life. I was the kid that brought home a pillow case of wrappers while Trick or Treating as I ate it all “on the road”. I tried everything including a Hypnotist - nothing worked. All that stopped and I lost 32 pounds in 36 days. Our 11 year old daughter and I trade clothes. AFTER YEARS OF LOVING CHOCOLATE - FINALLY A CHOCOLATE THAT LOVES ME BACK!

What, if I might ask, exactly is a peer-revised scientific article?

Does that mean he screwed up the over 100 published scientific articles he allegedly published so badly that his peers at the clown academy had to correct all his mistakes? :?:

Hmmm. I wonder if his colloidal-mineral endorsement business is going down the toilet?

Gee, Wes, if you'd just take the time to look at some of the 100 or so peer-revised scientific articles by Dr. Wallach, you wouldn't be so quick to disparage the guy. :D

For example...

7.) Wallach , J.D. , Degenerative Arthritis In A Black Rhinoceros

23.) Wallach , J.D. , Hand-rearing a White Rhinoceros

37.) Wallach , J.D. , Lumpy Jaw in Captive Kangaroos

38.) Wallach , J.D. , Induced Recumbency in a Camel

42.) Wallach , J.D., The Management and Medical Care of Goldfish

50.) Wallach , J.D. , Foot care for Captive Elephants

70.) Wallach , J.D. , Let’s Play Doctor

73.) Wallach , J.D. , Let’s Play Herbal Doctor

... to name but a few of his scholarly articles published.

a partial chronological list of biomedical research publications authored (in whole or in part) by Dr. Wallach

With Dr. Wallach's wide ranging medical background, it's no wonder that "Youngevity® is the only network marketing company to have an authorized FDA Health Claim. In fact, Youngevity® and Dr. Wallach have two authorized Health Claim Petitions through the FDA."

I took a quick look at their web site. Among the clearer observations:

(1) They write that
TRŪ Chocolate is sweetened with Xylitol. A natural sugar alcohol that is the nearest to sugar. Xylitol is believed to retard tooth decay bacteria, making TRŪ Chocolate safe for your dental health. While it does not raise blood sugar levels, Xylitol is used by the body to produce energy.
Xylitol is in fact a sugar alcohol, lower in calories than sucrose and therefore having less of an effect on blood sugar levels. But to say it has no effect is false, and dangerous to diabetics.

(2) The stuff is candy - maybe not as bad for you as other candies, but candy. Look at the label: one serving - 8 g, less than one-third oz - contains no nutrition to speak of. The highest DAR is 10% magnesium, then 6% iron, and less than 4% of anything else. A serving has 36 calories, or about 4.5 c/gm. That's about the same per gram as an Almond Joy or a Kit Kat. It's more than a plain cake or wheat doughnut. Source: CNN Food Central.

(3) The main site doesn't tell you how much the stuff costs - always a bad sign. However, distributors' sites do: $30 for a bag containing fifteen pieces. Each piece, you recall, is 8 grams, so the bag contains 120 grams, a little over four ounces. So the stuff costs nearly $8 per oz. Godiva truffles - for my money, the best chocolate readily available - are $70 for a 25 oz gift box, less than half the cost of Tru.

And not too good for Fido either. Don't feed the stuff to your dog.

According to Snopes, just three grams of Xylitol can kill a 65-pound dog, - Xylitol Danger

But I'm quite certain it's perfectly harmless to humans.

That aside, it apparently gives chocolate a weird taste. At least according to one former
purveyor of the product:

Many people simply do not like the taste and/or aftertaste of chocolate made with xylitol, and this may make this chocolate hard to market. (I previously worked with this chocolate and sent out many samples to prospects. But they weren't happy with the taste, and indeed I had a hard time keeping anyone on the team. I no longer work with any MLM chocolates.

Tru Chocolate Review

I don't think I'll spend $30 for a bag containing fifteen pieces of the stuff to find out whether or not the reviewer is lying.

I once laid some Tru Chocolate on a malignant tumor and it immediately leapt into the air with a rousing rendition of "Hello, My Baby".

Dr Wallach might be a dirty rotten scoundrel. Still, hand-rearing a White Rhino is pretty cool.
