Unfortunately, while I was nerding out to Mythbusters last night, a commercial for the “iRenew” balance bracelet came on the TV. This was the first time that I have seen these bracelets advertised on television, and it seemed like something that definitely belonged in the 3:00AM shitty TV slot.
I have already discussed why these bracelets are absolute bogus scam bullcrap, and I will not explain how they cannot work again here. Suffice to say that a simple googling of reviews will show they are bogus, even if you don’t believe me.
Let’s again watch some videos:
There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute
Here’s one review:
Consumers have told the BBB that they felt the bracelets were useless, their TV commercials were misleading, the cost of shipping and handling was exorbitant and/or obtaining a refund proved to be extremely difficult.
Reviews like this really exemplify the shady nature of these bracelet suppliers. Not only that, but just because a celebrity or athlete has one, does not mean that it works! Celebs and athletes are not skeptics, they are not concerned with good science. They latch on to every new fad, and are completely contented with placebo. I don’t care that Kobe thinks that it works, last time I checked his title is not DR. BRYANT!
Additionally, you want a more through dissection of the bracelet’s claims, refer to my earlier post entitled “Balance Bracelet Bogus”.
I will again defer to these investigative videos showing their falsehoods, and how they trick the unsuspecting:
Please leave a comment if you still don’t believe me. I can teach you how to do these same tests and achieve the same balance results with a rock. Don’t buy this crap! It promotes bad science, and I know that’s what you all care about!
