If there is a lesson to be learned here, it is that you should know when to quit. I’ve pointed out time and time again how StemEnhance does not work as you said it would. In fact, it may even be dangerous to consume. Yet you persist in defending it. Even after I offered you a way out by sending you a FINAL reply, you insist on prolonging the issue. Why?
Do you have some kind of financial interest in StemEnhance? Are you a distributor or “an independent business owner” (if you prefer) associated with StemTech International? Otherwise, I really cannot understand why you insist on defending its purported virtues even in the absence of evidence, and despite the numerous contrary reports against it.
If you are genuinely concerned about the health of your friends and relatives, should you not consider the facts that I’ve presented to you? Instead, you brush them off with truly superfluous excuses. Let me address a few for you.
1. Cannot sell does not mean, cannot consume!
It also does not mean you should consume the banned substance. More often than not, a substance is banned for being detrimental to health. This is true in the case of StemEnhance. As far as Canada is concerned, it’s a Type II health risk.
2. The name StemEnhance wasn’t spelt out.
Actually, StemEnhance was clearly mentioned. I quote, “StemEnhance is an unauthorized Natural Health Product in Canada that was the subject of a Health Hazard Evaluation prepared by NHPD at the request of the HPFB Inspectorate in 2006. The conclusion of the HHE was that StemEnhance was a Type II risk to health. Therefore it should no longer be available on the Canadian market.”
Sure, StemTech says it’s “temporary”, but the fact of the matter is it’s been 4+ years since it was banned, and it’s still banned in Canada.
3. Here you go again… confusing StemEnhance as the product! Please read thru once again. It is Cell Tech, not StemTech!
Actually, there is no confusion. The report was about Cell Tech’s green-blue algae products, but these are the same products made by StemTech. In fact, StemTech is actually a “child” of Cell Tech. Here’s a little history :
|StemEnhance appears to be the brainchild of Christian Drapeau and Gitte S. Jensen, Ph.D. Drapeau is director of Research and Development for Desert Lake Technologies, of Klamath Falls, Oregon. Desert Lake’s Web site says that before that, he spend five years as director for research and development for Cell Tech International, a multilevel company whose primary products are derived from blue-green algaeDesert Lake Technologies was incorporated in 1999. In addition to Drapeau, three of its executives worked for Cell Tech for several years. Robert Longo was Cell Tech’s chief financial officer; Michael Jubie was its process engineer; and Peter York was its harvest engineer. In July 2000, Drapeau notified the FDA that Desert Lake intended to claim that its blue-green algae product Summa would be claimed to “help maintain a healthy cholesterol level.” The FDA responded that that the claim would be illegal
You will also note that both Cell Tech and StemTech are based in Klamath Falls and harvest their algae from the upper Klamath Lake, Oregon. Po-tay-to, po-tah-to?
4. On a more serious note, you are supposed to be a man of some learning as you have a ‘doctor’ in front of your name. I assume it must be a PhD…? What if I were to shout out loud in front of your friends “it is a fake degree!” or “bought from the mills!”… how and what would your response be?
I couldn’t care less what you think of me, or say about me. You see, I know who I am, and so do people who know me. You can say anything you like but it wouldn’t change the fact that I am who I am. If it makes you feel better to say that my degree is fake, or I bought it from the mills, please enjoy yourself. It doesn’t hurt me one bit. Really. But neither will it change the fact that your claims are false.
You said that with StemEnhance, “conditions such as lupus, cancers, heart problems, diabetes, spinal injuries, liver and kidney problems, brain tumours, and many many more, have been surprisingly dealt with” and that “Even those who were once blind, now can see! The hard of hearing are able to hear again! The wheel-chair bound getting up to walk!” I dare you to show me a peer-reviewed, double-blinded study that shows such a miraculous effect.
Let me save you the effort by pointing you to the official StemTech disclaimer :
| “Neither StemTech Health Sciences Inc. nor its distributors make or infer any claims that StemEnhance® can cure, mitigate, treat or prevent any disease. If you believe that you have a health problem, see your doctor or health professional immediately.”
It doesn’t sound like even StemTech believes that their product will cure a cold, much less cancer or blindness.
I’m very sure you will have plenty to say about this. However, before replying, perhaps you would like to check with StemTech International if they endorse your statements that :
a) StemEnhance will treat “conditions such as lupus, cancers, heart problems, diabetes, spinal injuries, liver and kidney problems, brain tumours, and many many more”
b) “Even those who were once blind, now can see! The hard of hearing are able to hear again! The wheel-chair bound getting up to walk!”
I would very much love to know what they think about those claims.
