Don’t use DNA to peddle your nonsense

nugenix

I’ve long been interested in a critical approach of “alternative medicine” products (check out What’s the Harm or Science-Based Medicine for lots of great content on this topic)!

I saw this on a TV commercial. Not only is this product probably ineffective and/or unsafe, the drawing of DNA is inaccurate in at least 2 ways:

1) doesn’t have major/minor grooves

2) incorrect number of base pairs per turn

Also, are they suggesting testosterone supplements affect your DNA? If so, that’s another reason to avoid them!
