Food Marketers Rely Less on TV in Favor of Other Marketing, Says CSPI About FTC Report

1 June 2007The new data released today by the Federal Trade Commission show that food advertising on children’s television hasn’t increased. But that’s hardly cause for much celebration.

Memory Supplements Forgettable, Says CSPI

4 May 2007. Don’t count on dietary supplements to help protect or improve your memory, despite the appealing claims on dozens of products. There’s no solid science indicating that any of the major ingredients in these pills actually work, according to a review in the May issue of Nutrition Action Healthletter, published by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest.
