Coral Calcium Update

A while back, I commented on an amusing informercial in which the makers of “Coral Calcium” made this claim:

“DNA can’t work unless it’s smothered in calcium”.

Turns out, the FTC was reading Angry Bear:

The Federal Trade Commission is asking a U.S. court in Chicago to shut down an operation that sells Coral Calcium Supreme, a product advertised with one of the most widely run infomercials on cable television this year…”The danger here is using an ineffective treatment for a really serious condition. Calcium is good stuff; it builds strong bones, but it doesn’t cure cancer.”

Ok, maybe they noticed this somewhere other than Angry Bear.
