    'Lack of evidence' that popular sports products work

    Interesting article on the BBC website

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-18863293

    If you are in the UK I suspect that you can watch the program on iPlayer.

    I have read a number of articles recently over the dubious qualities of expensive trainers/supplements which confirm what I suspected that a lot of people spend a lot of money on stuff that will have minimal impact on their performance.

    Am I alone in that?

    I spend lots of money, every month, on milk, and chicken.

    Well, that and fish, and a multi-vitamin. But then again, I'm hardly at the pinnacle of fitness. So... maybe?
    I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

    Much like Gatorade now being sold beside every other beverage, but they still make their claims that it's a sports drink. People think that drinking it somehow makes them into athletes, much like drinking diet coke means one is on a diet.

    The one that pisses me off are the "Q-Ray Bracelets". People believe in them with a religious fervour.

    Q-Ray Bracelets? Haven't seen them before - what a load of horseshit.
