Pink Patch ‘irresponsible’

Come on, you didn’t really believe you’d lose weight wearing a pink coloured sticky patch did you?
The internet advert for a slimming patch which claimed users could lose a stone (6.35kg) in two weeks has been banned, according to the BBC.
The ad for the Pink Patch, which seemed to be on every social networking site not so long ago, was branded “irresponsible” by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) which said it promoted “bad medical practice”.
The ASA said there was no evidence that the herbal ingredients in the patch caused any loss of weight. Read the full adjudication here.
