Spam Alert

By David Glück
Posted on: 4/18/2002

A selection of spam from Kil's inbox: TFT, HGH, Psychics, Spray Vitamins, Creatine and Magnets.


Everyday, my email inbox is filled with spam from companies that offer incredible new all natural wonder drugs, psychic readings, therapies and “get rich quick” schemes. Friends and people who have visited this site have also forwarded some emails they’ve received that they found particularly funny, alarming or annoying. I thought it might be fun to share some of my favorites with you.

Thought Field Therapy: A Paradigm Shift

Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is revolutionizing psychotherapy. Directed at the body’s energy system and thought fields, TFT heals at a fundamental level and is rapid and thorough in its effect. It is psychotherapy at the quantum level. TFT uses energy meridian treatment points used in Oriental cultures since ancient times. Stimulating those points in an appropriate ordered sequence provides dramatic rapid improvement in individuals suffering from trauma, anxiety, addictive urges, phobias, and more. This workshop will train participants in TFT trauma treatment and give them the oppurtunity to see and experience this powerful therapy.

IS AGING A CURABLE DISEASE?

YES IT IS!

Do you know someone who..

* Needs help maintaining high activity levels?
* Wants to improve their quality of life?
* Wants to enhance sexual performance?
* Needs help sleeping?
* Wants to lose fat or increase muscle mass

We are helping people do all of these things, and you can be a part of it! For over three decades, wealthy people throughout the world have been achieving dramatic health results with supplemental (HGH), costing $1000 per month or more for daily injections.
Now, however, a team of scientists from Europe and the US have succeeded in creating an oral transporter that can deliver large molecule nutrients and hormones, such as HGH. This has provided the average person the opportunity to receive revitalizing supplements by mouth rather than expensive injection.

What is HGH?

HGH supports the immune system. As a result, it affects virtually every cell in the human body. Your body produces HGH, and as you age, your body produces less and less of it.

The great news?

HGH can be REPLACED and can help to:

*Support healthy heart function
*Support proper blood pressure
*Support development of lean muscle mass
*Dramatically support proper sleep cycles
*Improve oxygen intake
*Support activity levels and exercise performance
*Support and promote better sexual performance.

What would happen if people were offered a longevity alternative that really worked — a substance with overwhelming proof from more than 20,000 studies of its effectiveness and safety?
What if HGH came in a bottle, and you could carry it in your pocket?

What if you could spray it under your tongue, like breath spray?

How many people could benefit?

Are we saying that this is “Life in a bottle?”
Are we saying that this is “Youth in a bottle?”

ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Medical Science and more than 20,000 studies over many years have made that common knowledge.

For the last 15 years HGH has only been available through an injection from a doctor — at a cost of $1200 or more per month. But now…

Join us as we provide that product to the public at exactly the moment they want it most! And the best part is, it doesn’t cost $1200 a month and you don’t have to take an injection. It costs about $4.00 a day — the price of a pastry and a cup of coffee at Starbucks!

For information on how you can obtain our unique product and help others to do the same while you profit handsomely from this amazing “fountain of youth” product, simply >HIT REPLY> or call [number deleted]

While I’d like to profit handsomely from this, I can’t right now. I’m on my way to Starbucks for a pastry and a cup of coffee…

“Have you Sprayed
Your Vitamins Today!”

No hard-to-swallow pills,
no upset stomach… plus nearly
complete absorption of nutrients,
and as easy and convenient as it sounds!

When vitamins are delivered via oral spray, 90% of the nutrients are absorbed into your bloodstream - Nine Times More (according to the prestigious Physician’s Desk ReferenceTM) than the 10% absorbtion rate of a typical vitamin pill lodged in your digestive tract.

I have to comment here. The publishers and editors of the Physicians Desk Reference do not test drugs. They just publish what is submitted by drug manufacturers. They make no claims at all. The above statement is therefore, at the very least, misleading. I would have to check the PDR so see if this is an outright lie.

Get the optimum goodness of vitamins in your system in seconds - without pills to swallow, water to hunt for, bottles to fumble, or an upset stomach!

100% CERTIFIED by the NAC
Now listed in the Physician’s Desk ReferenceTM

How does oral spay absorption work?

Micro-sized beads or droplets of nutrients are absorbed through the mucosa (tissue lining) of the mouth and oral cavity, directly into the bloodstream at the site of dense vascularization. When a microfine mist containing medicine or nutrients is sprayed into the mouth, absorption is efficient and almost instantaneous. Scientists have discovered that oral absorption is a prefered dosage method for many drugs.

Oral (spray) absorption is indeed the wave of the future. Products now available using the approved methodology of oral absorption include insulin, interferon, nitroglycerine and dietary supplements-vitamins, minerals, amino acids and herbs.

You would think they could get someone to have proofed the text of this email. My spell checker went crazy since I wouldn’t let it correct the errors. Anyway, it doesn’t surprise me one bit that they think this could be a big seller at health food stores. For more on that, see the Kil Report.
