I was doing some research on liquid oxygen because I thought it sounded like a great idea, if the claims were true. Then I ran across an article on the internet "FTC Attacks 'Stabilized Oxygen' Claims" by Stephen Barrett, M.D. In essence, it says,
* There is no reason to believe that the products actually deliver oxygen to the body. It's possible to use an electric current to add a tiny amount of oxygen to water but to access it, a human would need gills.
* Even if they could, taking oxygen into the stomach through a liquid, pill, or food would not significantly raise the body's blood level of oxygen.
* Oxygen enters the bloodstream through the lungs. The body adapts to what it needs by changing its breathing rate.
* The oxygen content of the air is not changing and remains constant at 21% regardless of the weather.
*If enough oxygen is available to sustain life, the body will extract what it needs from the air and deliver what is needed to the cells. Blood returning to the lungs contains surplus oxygen.
* "Oxygen deficiency" is not an underlying cause of disease.
It goes on to say that the Federal Trade Commision had slapped a company making this claims w/ a $375k penalty.
So...it looks like Cellfood Liquid, the potion Teresa has on the T-Tapp web-site is one of these products.
I'm confused. Do they work? Have any of you had success w/ them? I believe that a lot of us don't get enough oxygen due to poor breathing,etc, but is there anything to substantiate that Cellfood works? (Tried to do a forum search and it didn't come up.)
I would be disappointed to discover that Teresa would maket or contribute to the marketing of what the FTC considers a hoax.
