The ones he did on the show were not done that well, I guess in the interests of time.
Nice first post. Welcome to TCF. I like your user name. I reference that all the time.

And I am sure that with appropriate funds they could do a clinical trial that would demonstrate that it is effective enough to make some claims.

Last season an inventor offered shrimp burgers it has since been on an update segment on the show.

Has anyone found and/or tried them?

BTW, I use the poor mans version of "drop stop", It's called junk mail and magazines. Our community has a central mail-drop. As I often do, I stop for the mail on my way to an errand and the mail, magazines etc. land in the space between my seat and the center console.

I'm sure they could, too. I was responding to the post that claimed that Cuban "fell for being better", despite the lack of any medical claim.

Right. I was just adding to your point. A lot of products probably could legally make claims if they had the money/desire to demonstrate such claims in a lab setting. I don't think the fact that she said she can't make that claim was damning of the product like it might be of magnetic bracelets and junk like that.
