    I didn't want to hijack the green smoothie thread. But EVERY time I receive a suggestion about some magic diet :rolleyes: or read about something like the green smoothie BS :rolleyes:, it makes me think of these sort of things. Some even have celebrity endorsements like "'Lord Carrick of Mount Juliet, Thomastown, writes: Homocea cured him of a very severe case of Hemorrhoids in a fortnight, when all else had failed.'"


    So I thought I'd post it in case someone finds these as humorous as I do. :rolleyes::p There are several pages of old ads for products that claim to cure pretty much everything.

    Probably so. If you took just the right amount I suppose you could get to feeling pretty good. ;)
