To whom it may concern,
I am writing to find out if you can help me with some questions I have regarding shark cartilage products. I have had problems with my joints and joint pain for most of my life. I have tried a number of products from herbs to prescriptions with very little effect.
I have been researching your shark cartilage products and you make them sound like they might be a good choice. Now comes the question, I like to research anything I plan to put in my body. I did some extensive research regarding shark cartilage and found that a number of companies are going to stop selling this type of product. I have even found articles that state this type of product to be the modern snake oil.
I also found that sharks are being hunted to the brink of extinction. This seems to be confusing if you are trying to sell the product knowing that it might do absolutely nothing for me and everything wrong for the sharks.
In my research I found this rather disturbing information:
“You can write to the Federal Trade Commission at: Correspondence Branch, Federal Trade Commission, Washington, DC 20580
Inform them of the deception being practiced by those who sell shark cartilage and liver oil.
Call your local Attorney General and complain about the fraudulent advertising and promotion of shark cartilage and shark liver oil products.
Contact the local office of the Food and Drug Administration, listed in your phone book under Health and Human Services in the federal government section, and push for stricter regulation of the "health food," and shark cartilage in particular, industry.
OK, write your Congress person (or other appropriate legislative representative) too, and let them know you support legislation protecting sharks, and putting the scam artists out of business!
In the long run, the best thing that we can do to preserve the beauty and majesty found everywhere around us is to teach our children the wonder of the natural world, and to respect those life forms with which we share the planet.”
Can someone please contact me and help me with these concerns?
