Looks like the apple cider vinegar diet has not held up well in courts.

Texas District Court issued a PERMENANT injunction ordering Brian S. Peskin and his company to pay $100,000 to the State of Texas and to refrain from making a long list of unsubstantiated claims about their Radiant Health Products and Peskin's credentials, including Apple Cider Vinegar dieting goods.

The actural product was called: "Herbal Essence" which is an acidified food made of Burdock Root, Sheep Sorrel, Cat's Claw bark, Slippery Elm bark, and Turkish Rhubarb Root brewed with APPLE CIDER VINEGAR and water.

The defendent claimed that "Herbal Essence" will do the follwing in advertisments: help you lose weight; (2) boost your immune system; (3) protect against heart disease; (4) reduce the risk of breast, prostate and other cancers; (5) increase your energy, improve concentration, and minimize the harmful effects of stress; (6) eliminate varicose veins; (7) lower blood pressure; (8) lower cholesterol; (9) eliminate cellulite; (10) cure constipation; (11) prevent diabetes; (12) manage ADD; (13) eliminate fatigue; (14) reduce your appetite.
