Is this organization legitimate?
By Gil A.
Scam! And frankly I don't understand how they are able to continue perpetrating fraud after so many years! There are 'several' links regarding their dubious nature but check out this first one and read the second one on how to tell if an organization is questionable:
I wouldn't quite call them a scam. According to the Better Business Bureau www.bbb.org/
The BBB has a list of 6 alternate business names for them which I thought was peculiar.
Concerning the comment left by anonymous or rather the 2 links left,

In other words, it's a highly toxic chemical waste product that causes harm to your health, especially to babies and young children. Ever wonder why toddler toothpaste has no fluoride or toothpaste with fluoride says children should be supervised and that they should not swallow it?
Second of all, according to the CDC The prevalence of dental caries in a population is not inversely related to the concentration of fluoride in enamel, and a higher concentration of enamel fluoride is not necessarily more efficacious in preventing dental caries. SOURCE: CDC (2001). Recommendations for using fluoride to prevent and control dental caries in the United States. Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Review 50(RR14):1-42. In short, people can have perfect teeth without consuming fluoridated water or any other fluoride product. As with teeth, no other tissue or cellular process requires fluoride.
Accordingly, it is now accepted that fluoride is not an essential nutrient." fluoridealert.org/
I was a strong believer in the Health Science Institute and their outrageous claims about breakthroughs in medicines.
I was so impressed with them, that I ignored warnings about the institute being a scam and went on to pay for membership which would entitle me to a 500-page book with remedies for a multitude of ailments, plus a bonus book.
I couldn't believe that after the payment was made there was no book/s such as what was promised. I wrote to them several times inquiring about it, but they never replied.
I then request my membership to be cancelled and asked for a refund.
Again, I was disappointed. No refund was given, which is another lie! They promised that if for any reason someone is dissatisfied, they can cancel membership and get a full refund!
I wish these crooks a lifetime of miseries!!
Thank you. I was considering a membership but your input has convinced me to beware and avoid the relationship. Too bad. This type deal just exemplifies the greed now running rampant in our country.
