Quote from insulaindoielii.wordpress.com :
The company name is Zenyth Pharmaceuticals
Their main brand and product is ColonHelp.
This is their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ColonHelp.ro
Please tell them what freedom of speech means to you.
Last year in July I wrote a damning article related to a colon cleansing product released by a local company.
The scientific data supporting the benefits of these products is small to non-existent and I have documented this in several articles concluding that mucoid plaque is simply a side-effect of colon cleansing products. This is the consensus of all my sources.
That brings us closer to today, but let me back up and explain the issues to those that have not read the pdf’s above.
The producers of the colon cleansing product mentioned in the posts contacted me a while ago (in the comments) claiming that I have damaged their reputation and should pay 100.000 euro for that damage. This was followed by me writing another post in which I explained why it’s generally a bad idea to sue people criticizing your company as it can only bring negative visibility.
Some friends were supportive and posted articles further detailing how the product is deceitful woo. They were also attacked with lawyer tactics and changed their original posts to exclude the brand name.
Well, some more time passed and I thought everything was fine, because really, a blog should not be able to affect a million dollar business that much. Life moved on and I’ve started writing about other pseudosciences, like iridology and the local health laws which support bogus treatments like quantum medicine and floral Bach remedies.
And then, today, WordPress notified me that the company has taken legal action against them (Automatic Inc) and provided the documents that were submitted to the courts.
The matter was discussed multiple places on the Romanian ’sphere, as for instance on fain (111 days ago, the software dutifully informs me).
And this brings us pretty much up to date, as they say. Imaginary “health benefits” based on pseudo-medical mumbo-jumbo + Church of Scientology-esque bully practices based on pseudo-legal mumbo-jumbo = Scam.
