My heart goes out to you. I have a friend who has this, and my daughter suffers from it as well. And no, that doesn't work, any of it.

As Val says, he's been a victim of the MLM industry that's pushing an overpriced fruit drink on us.
Even MLM-ers who are into this thing report that it takes a downline of
