We lined up a meeting for January 6 to finalize our agreement and to set up a long-term contract. The first rollout ad ran January 2, 1978. On January 3, 1978, an FDA agent out of Cincinnati showed up at our door. Also, an agent from the Ohio Department of Agriculture showed up at Colso to take samples of the dry mix. We greeted the agent cor- dially as we had always done with regulatory officials. Our policy had always been to give regulatory officials full cooperation and courtesy. We spent nearly a whole afternoon with him. I even took him over to my house and showed him how the bread was prepared and gave him some to eat. He asked for the formulation of the bread, which I gave him. He then said he wanted to go through the ad in detail for substan- tiation of the claims, which we did. The meeting was very cordial, and I assumed it satisfied the agent that we indeed had a good product, and our claims were substantiated. That same week I got a call from a friend whom I will call Bob Gilmond. Gilmond, a direct-marketing executive, was an older gentle- man who had been around and had several friends in high-level gov- ernment jobs. He said it was urgent to talk to me and that he and a friend were going to fly out. At dinner the next day, they told us their horror story. Gilmond started by saying that we had better drop the bread or we would be put out of business. He explained that the health and drug business was a well-protected field in which only an exclusive handful of people were allowed in.

If we persisted, we would be put out of business through the use of the dirtiest tricks imaginable, and he added we could not fight these forces, because they were big vested interests that were invincible. At this point I really was furious. I said there has never been a man, a man-made organization or a man-made thing in the history of the world that has been invincible. No tyrannical son-of-a-bitch is going to take my valid product and put it off the market. Gilmond told me that other people had said the same thing, but their businesses had been destroyed permanently. I said that's other people, that's not me. And, I added, "I swear to you at this table today, should anybody unjustly try to take this product off the market, may God help them, because I will retaliate and destroy them." The entire meeting ended with everyone visibly shaken. I received messages the next day from several other friends in the direct-marketing business who had learned of the bread, and they said the same thing. One of them told me, "Look, you are especially vulner- able right now because a new patented medicine drug is just coming on the market for which a great deal of money has been paid to the government to falsify test reports." I asked, "Is the product effective?" He said, "No, I don't believe the product is safe or effective. These

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
