This goes on in prime time, too. Drug ads.
They speed read the disclaimer and it's legal.
but at least for a drug
1) it is prescribed by a medical professional
2) it is dispensed by a pharmacist
3) usually they refer you to a website or magazine advertisement that has all the disclaimers if not in a little fine print.
(pharmaceuticals don't want lawsuits, they can't change their name and come back tomorrow that easily.--
* seek help if having trouble coping
--Standard disclaimers apply.--
