FTC cracks down on weight-loss scams
There are lots of companies selling worthless products and making false promises. It's an easy way for them to make money and so it stands to reason that they'll do it as long as they can get away with it. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

Probiotics and prebiotics are useful in certain clinical situations, but beware of diet pill scams which make all sorts of ridiculous claims regarding them. There are lots of testimonials on YouTube for crappy products like Floraspring which try to fool consumers into thinking that probiotics and/or prebiotics are the key to weight loss. Watch this video and you'll see the fallacy exposed.
