Foot Detox Pads

Laura Johannes writes in the WSJ online about the silliness called foot detox pads.  Congratulations for getting to the bottom of this pile of crap.  The sale of these pads and the use of ion detox foot baths are proof positive that science hasn't really affected the thinking of enough Americans to prevent snake oil salesman from making a living in our modern age. 

The great irony of today's internet, driven by content sensitive advertising is that the "sponsored links" just below her article are for three companies that sell the items she has just attempted to debunk.  Gotta love adsense or is it nonsense.

  1. Thanks for the commentary. I agree with you 100%. When I attend conventions where this product is displayed, they seem to manage to stay full with DC's being tested and make it very clear how much money you can make off this product. There are "believers" in every profession, just more in ours.
