    Do you trust MLM'rs for health/wellness advice?

    Or would you rather trust doctors/medical researchers/health journalists?

    Best way is not to give any. Point them to the websites, use the brochures, print offs etc. Much easier that way.

    Not the ones I have seen on this forum.

    If these folks are a good representation of your typical MLM'er...then HELL NO!

    I wouldn't ask them for advice on how to tie my shoes.

    Re: Do you trust MLM'rs for health/wellness advice

    An MLMr comes up to you: "Hey, I just failed my 7th MLM, and now I'm on to my 8th. Nearly everyone I've got involved in these businesses has lost money, including myself, my wife, and my father-in-law. However, despite never having attended med school, or any college for that matter, I'd like to give you some health tips and sell you some pills..."

    Me: "Sure, sounds reasonable, where do I sign up?"

    I wouldn't trust them for wellness/health or financial advice or anything else for that matter.

    Yeah... Drs are so reputable

    Of course that is why medical insurance is only pennies on the dollar...

    Oh wait.. I forgot... It is actually thousands of dollars becuase of all the malpractice insurance they have to carry..

    Good luck with that

    Talk about being a sheep...

    Please tell me an alternative professional in case you ever require treatment/surgery for any of these:

    Heart, Liver, Kidney Transplant
    Chemo Therapy
    Radiation Therapy
    Da Vinci Robotic Surgery
    Laprascopic Surgery
    Pregnancy via C-Section
    Laminectomy, Discectomy
    Hormonal Imbalances
    Removal of Malignant and Benign Tumors
    Depression, Dementia, Alzheimer's
    Rhuematoid, Osteo, DJD, Arthritis
    Torn Rotator Cuff, ACL, MCL, Dislocated anything
    Pneumonia, Bronchitis, COPD, Asthma, Pleurisy, the PLAGUE,

    a freakin tooth pulled.....
    ect.......

    Oh....a friendly Vitamark/Herbalife/MLM sales rep has better answers than the doctors and professionals who treat the above conditions and surgeries.

    Look here for a list of medical conditions....guess who treats those....doctors.

    Take Amway's vitamins and you will most likely never experience any of these afflictions.

    Muahahaha!

    You didn't even read his list. Since when do vitamins do a thing about dislocated bones, a pregnancy requiring a C-section, or asthma? Nor do vitamins help much if you need a tooth pulled - there are reasons for tooth extraction besides decay, you know.

    Reading comprehension doesn't seem to be a strong suit in the pro MLM camp.

    Medical costs are high because Dr's are not reputable?
    NYT Atricle
    In 1975, California lawmakers approved a $250,000 cap on so-called noneconomic damages in cases of medical mistakes, which has since become a model for similar proposals. At least 35 states now have at least some limits on malpractice damages. The California law has also been the focus of long-running debate over who benefits from caps — doctors or insurers — and whether the measures inflict unintended negative consequences upon victims of medical errors, including plaintiffs’ inability to find lawyers to take their cases.
    In the early years after California enacted its cap, doctors did not see the cost of their insurance policies plummet. From 1976 to 1986, the total paid in premiums increased 176 percent, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. (Nationally, premiums rose 221 percent.)
    Lots of states have enacted caps on lawsuits, yet malpractice insurance hasn't really decreased in those states, or much of anywhere.

    And you call other people sheep?
    I'm not selling anything, so I don't need links in my signature to for-profit ventures. You really should question the intentions of those here that have them, as they are generally advertising, not informing.

    At this point, I know your whole reason to be on this forums is to piss people off. Well played Sir, well played. :

    In today's society, you can pay anyone to say anything. It's your job to try and read through all the smoke screen and lies, and come to an honest stance (which can be 100% false without you realizing it).
