Miscellaneous Musing by Judy @ 4:12 AM
tags:

I don’t usually read spam, finding the delete key the most appropriate method of dealing with such emails. But it’s way early in the morning and I can’t sleep.

Today I received an offer touting “The Antidote,” a “unique Anti-Microbial Peptide” that “Kills Body Bacteria, Kills Body Virus and make your body Immunity System Healthy and Strong.” [sic]

I’m am promised that organizations “as varied as the BBC, ABC, and reputable doctors in the crocodile field have all given testimonials praising the power of the Antidote.”

Notwithstanding the fact that many “body bacterias” are actually beneficial and without them we’d have a harder time with functions like actually digesting the food we eat. And notwithstanding the fact that I don’t usually get my medical advice from either BBC or ABC.

Do I really want to take medical advice from a veterinarian? I can’t think what else a “doctor in the crocodile field” would be. Unless it’s someone who maybe has an office in the midst of the Florida everglades? But is that any better?

I think I’ll pass on clicking that link to find out…
