Evolv Health Scam

December 9, 2009

This is a brief post based on my personal experience with Evolv Health, a network marketing company based in Dallas who is pushing a water based beverage with miracle claims.  I have to admit, when I first saw Trey White making claims that this Archaea Active formula has been researched by the renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC), I was hooked. Specifically, in his video, he said “science backed up by documented studies from the country’s top ranked…MDACC”  The fact of the matter was that they simply paid MDACC a fee to conduct a simple test on the anti inflammatory functions of lipids.  The results came back inconclusive, but it didn’t stop them from making claims that this water is associated with cancer and MDACC.  I spent countless hours pushing people to sign up for this amazing opportunity, only to find out myself that the water didn’t have any special effect.  There were no published active ingredients on the bottle, leading me to believe that it was nothing more than water.  I also based this on three weeks of continuous drinking of this water, and finally realized that I was hustled by slick willy.  Besides the huge cost of the water, averaging about $3 a bottle shipped, there were no physical benefits that came with drinking the water.  Sure I wasn’t as thirsty as I normally was, but I wasn’t going to waste $3/bottle on water.  The bottom line is that if you are thinking about joining this pyramid, you will lose. Go to the store and pay $1/gallon and save yourself a lot of headache and money.


The simple things in Life

December 4, 2009

The simple things in life are often the best things in life, and sometimes we don’t take notice.  Raindrops outside our windows while we are sleeping; a text from a loved one to let you know that they are thinking of you; your 5 year old waking you up in the middle of the night scared and wants to join you in bed; a cupcake mysteriously appears on your desk from an admirer; a movie that you always wanted to watch is on.  These are all examples of many things that happen in our day that makes us smile.  Take notice of the simple things, it can always be recreated, but every experience is different, enjoy it while it last.
