Everything in moderation…

We’ve been told since childhood to take our daily vitamins, but sometimes they do more harm than good. In March 2017, a consumer fraud class action lawsuit was filed against popular vitamin manufacturer Vitafusion for that reason. Vitafusion lists 400 mg of folacin on the label of its flavored multivitamins. However, test results show an actual amount of 1,232 mg, which exceeds the “upper tolerable intake limit” of 1,000 mg set by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Read More

Is Flint’s Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

Flint, MI has gained national, negative recognition as the lead poisoned town with a contaminated water supply. A poor decision was made in 2014, to gather untreated river water as a source of the town’s potable water. This would serve as a temporary solution while a new pipeline to Lake Huron was constructed. The untreated river caused astronomically high levels of lead in Flint’s residents. Read More

Man, it’s a hot one.

Sunscreen, or sun tan lotion, is a very important element to enjoying a healthy lifestyle. While we all love getting outside and enjoying the sunshine, we have to be careful to protect our skin from the sun’s potentially harmful UV rays. We have all experienced sunburn at one time or another, which is a price many people are willing to pay for a nice-looking summer tan. It turns out that a Colorado company claimed that a version of their sunscreen was more than just a defense mechanism for the sun; that it was actually drinkable. The state of Iowa and their attorney general thought different, and has now filed a lawsuit against “Osmosis” and “Harmonized Water”. Read More

Too fast, too furious

Ferrari’s have always been known as popular sports cars. The very name conjures up an image of a sleek, futuristic coupe speeding around winding roads on the European countryside. A wrongfully terminated Ferrari salesman is firing back and accusing the European auto dealer of allowing “roll backs” on some of their cars. This, in theory, would decrease the mileage and make the car more valuable to potential buyers, interested in owning a flashy sports car. The lawsuit was filed by Robert Root of Palm Beach FL, who had been recently let go of a Ferrari dealership. Read More
