The Tabberone™ Archives
These articles concern what we consider major trademark and copyright issues. They are usually reproduced with the original source referenced. Bear in mind, these articles are copyrighted and commercial use without permission of the authors may be considered infringement. The intended use here is educational, commentary and non-commercial. The reason they are reproduced in the Tabberone™ Archives, as opposed to just providing a link, is because links disappear and pages are removed. That presents a messy confirmation process that is annoying to the browser (you) but also presents a credibility issue. We do not claim any rights in these pieces. Do not regard the absence of a copyright statement or © to mean the article is not copyrighted. Some sites do not have a copyright statement.

When an article or a comment is posted on the internet by the copyright owner, the owner is seeking a world-wide, 24/7 audience; sometimes for a limited amount of time, sometimes indefinitely. In essence, an internet posting intentionally relinquishes one's copyright for exclusivity because the owner has posted it on the internet to been seen by everyone, everywhere. The Tabberone™ Archives non-commercial duplication of the posting is simply a continuance of the original wishes of the copyright owner. We post these articles for reference, for commentary and for confirmarion of our position.

Bad Business

3.2.04 - Quackwatch has posted an article challenging the Juice Plus+ Children's Health Study, a large-scale, multi-year survey claimed to help determine what effect adding Juice Plus+ fruit & vegetable supplements to the family diet can have on the health and well-being of children ages 6-15. Each child participant is paired with an adult. The children are provided free products by the Juice Plus+ Children's Research Foundation, but the adults must purchase them and report their observations. The Foundation Web site has tabulated the answers to 17 questions for which the only responses are "more," "no change," or "less." Quackwatch's critique notes that data are meaningless because many of the questions are vague, there is no control group, and no data from dropouts are tabulated and that unless these shortcomings are corrected there is no reason to regard the study as anything but a gimmick to get families to buy Juice Plus+ products.
