Close to the edge
I have a great nose for smelling a scam from a mile away. Apparently I'm not the only person who has a problem with this mysterious Dr. Greg Cynaumon peddling CortiSlim. DietFraud.com has an entire page setup about this guy, citing, "Flashy infomercials could not hide the fact that there was no science in the claims for CortiSlim." Educational Achievement Systems has two pages about the good doctor, with one of them highlighting the various aspects of the lawsuit brought against Cynaumon by the FTC, and the other pointing out the inaccuracies of his work. Gary Adams, PhD, get's a major thumbs-up for doing the legwork on this. Another medical professional who took the time to debunk this CortiSlim/CortiSol quackery is Joe Cannon, MS, CSCS, who breaks down the ingredients in this supposive "wonder drug" and reveals it for what it really is --- hot air.
