Consumer advocate group US Drug Watchdog says it is launching a campaign to find consumers who have been “fleeced by ineffective diet pills or dietary supplements frequently advertised on cable TV.”

According to the group in a press release, “We believe our cable TV diet pill or dietary supplement initiatives will turn out to be one of our most important initiatives ever. We know this is a multibillion-dollar-a-year business, and we also know many of these diet pills, or dietary supplements, either do nothing, or they actually put the user at risk. We intend to put a stop to this nonsense.”
