En lo que se refiere a la [citotoxicidad]] "se concluyó que la muestra analizada solo presentaba efecto citotóxico a concentraciones muy elevadas", concentraciones que no se alcanzarían nunca, en "un consumo normal del citado producto".

Otra crítica que reciben los productos Herbalife es el efecto rebote que se genera al dejar de consumir sus productos. The black-box environment allows HLF and such companies to do all the things that the FTC outlined in the findings and rulings.

After expecting thousands of dollars to be paid, stopped. I have been a user of Herbalife products since I love the products. I think it's unfair to put limits to how much I can buy for myself and family. Herbalife never told me that this was a get rich over night kind of deal. Herbalife has never told me to buy x amount of products, so I can move up the marketing plan. All these allegations are incorrect. Yes, I do retail products, and I have made extra income.

However, I wouldn't say I am doing it to get rich. For those Distributors who feel like they have been taken advantage of, you are wrong Most businesses do not earn a profit right away and most businesses even outside of Herbalife fail within the first year.

Being an entrepreneur is a risk, and if you've taken a business course, you would know this. Soon everyone will know how much Herbalife is loved. I will continue to use the products regardless if there is a compensation plan to go along with it. The FTC did a long investigation, and while your experience may be true, there are many others that have been tricked with deceptive claims.

After this settlement many people will think it through before joining Herbalife. You may very well be a victim and just not realize it.

In reality, you should have described yourself as a 'consumer' and a 'salesperson' for the company Herbalife. And since you claim to have retail sales, this settlement shouldn't be a problem for you - unless of course, those customers are like you and sign up to get a discount on their own consumption which anyone can do.

This can negate your mark up making it a lousy sales job and hardly an entrepreneurial business. Round and round we go. Read, inherently flawed business model. Aren't I just buying someone else's idea and building it to my own purpose. So, if I go to work at a car sales company where my sales manager gets a cut of his sales team's commissions, is the car company a pyramid scheme? People just need to do their research before jumping in, and realize that success takes ALOT of hard work, time, and yes, money.

Sometimes, the more money you have to build your business the faster you'll make that money back. This is true in ANY corporate sales environment.

Maybe the FTC should look deeper into people who are getting rich in a government beauracracy? How do you get Rich as a public servant? The difference between Herbalife and a fast food joint is simple You can do the math and know.

I sell a 1, of cheeseburgers so I can break even to run my a business. For a pyramid scheme, you would do the math and say, To break even I must sell 1, of cheeseburgers, plus get 6 other people to open a Mcdonald's restaurant themselves to make my McDonald store to make money.

To make my store succesful I will not make money at my building but get others to give me money for running their own store. Instead of a fair retail margin they could stack the deck by purchasing any amount under their own account and would often do so at the end of the month for that 'next bonus'.

The compensation structure made it a lose lose situation and placed the consumer in a position to not win.. Yes most businesses don't make money right away You should keep using Herbalife if you love the products!! Just know the compensation part will change, there will now be safe guards to protect those that do want to try to build a business. The FTC had to go after Herbalife Way to be open to what happened to others bro. That was your experience?

Nope, gonna brush what you're telling me aside as a lie. Is it just me, or does every person who uses Herbalife have this same closed minded view of the world? If what others say doesn't match what Herbalife has told us it must be a blasphemous lie! I remember how much pressure they put on me to purchase and made me think it was easy, they posted their ads in a way that manipulated people seeking jobs that Herbalife was going to help them increase income.

It was all a scheme to get free labor and more money. Your experience isn't everyone's experience so get over it and accept it. The FTC just listened to Bill Ackman, because like the person who responded in the above, what you see at the ground level is far different than what the FTC alleged. Further, it is clear that the FTC believes Latino people are inherently stupid and therefore listened to the shameful latino activist Julie, when she has lied throughout and shown to have absolutely no moral compass.

The FTC wants to protect consumers but kill business, this has been the case for the last couple of years, and it just goes to show you the absurd mentality among non-business friendly leadership. I reiterate, why does my research on the ground and member research who are using the product differ from what the FTC said. But alas these are the clowns in government who never worked in a business setting, so thank you FTC in making me nauseated.

Full disclosure, I have no position in Herbalife in any form, simply because I knew the FTC would overstep and act similar to the babies crying for William Ackman. It is your choice whether to submit a comment.
