Bullshit detection and the claims of fat loss center of little rock

Post #: 6
At the ASF meeting on Sunday someone (brilliantly) suggested exposing the quackery at http://www.fatlosscen...­. That sounds like a good project to me. If anyone agrees, please post what are your thoughts on the subject.

Then again, perhaps you believe exposing quackery is someone else's job, that it should be left to professional snake-oil testers like the much-admired James Randi and Richard Dawkins, that skepticism should only be openly practiced in pubs.

Here's one website's description of "Lipo-Ex Technology":

"Lipo-Ex utilizes a mono-polar or a bi-polar radio frequency that increases the body temperature between 40° and 44°C to liquefy fat cells without affecting other structures in the body. The Lipo-Ex machine is able to increase the body’s temperature 5-100mm underneath the skin surface which allows for the reduction of superficial fat and visceral fat, located below the abdominal muscle and around the organs.

As the fat cells are heated, they become more porous, and this allows the liquefied fat to exit the cell. The fat cell itself is not damaged. Once heated, fat can more easily be eliminated through the lymphatic system out of the body through a natural process of elimination."

Really?

[note: if this actually does work, please email me immediately :) ]

It would be great to expose these guys. Do you have any ideas about how to go about it?
