Jesse Pereira Professor Dolan February 5th, 2018 Topic 3 When talking about quackery in the health industry it relates to a product that has been not approved by the FDA. It is a dishonest practice that claims to have knowledge in a certain field like medicine or physical fitness. The Shake Weight is the quackery fitness tool I decided to investigate. The Shake Weight is the typical quackery tool because it's on television ads for $19.99. It apparently says that it has been validated by a prestigious university, However, the actual study is not published in any peer-reviewed scientific journal. A reference to the study cannot be found on the Shake Weight web site, in any advertisement, or with the product package. An attempt to search for the specific study online also yielded no results.
