RealAge = RealShill

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 14:03

I keep seeing ads on the web for some on-line “test” to find my “real age”. I never bothered clicking because I knew it would be bogus.

Just how bogus, though, I didn’t suspect.

Well, well, well, well, well. Isn’t that interesting? “America’s Doctor,” friend to Oprah, and that die-hard supporter of CAM and “integrative medicine” who recently testified in front of Senator Tom Harkin’s committee about how the U.S. needs to “integrate” more woo into its medicine is shilling for a company that gathers health care information about its members from its surveys and serves as a middle man for the targeted distribution of big pharma advertisements designed to sell them the latest and greatest pill! His picture is even right there on the front page of the RealAge website! Moreover, RealAge appears to be playing it–shall we say?–coy when it comes to informing its members about its relationship with big pharma

Just think what I’ve been missing by not watching Oprah.
