New Lab Tests Reveal Herbalife, Usana Have 1,000 Times the Lead as Ensure, Boost
Date:6/20/2008

by MLM distributors from door to door "retail" sales (2) the sales forces of Herbalife, Usana and the other company's analyzed are churned (lost money/quit/replaced) at rates between 60-90% each year and (3) 99% of all sales representatives each year in the sample of companies analyzed earned on average less than $13 a week in commission income.

According to Mr. Fitzpatrick in the report prepared for Mr. Grell, "The (income) figure represents a significant financial loss for virtually all that join these schemes. As extreme as the loss rate is, this figure is conservatively understated because it is calculated before all business expenses, inventory purchases and taxes are factored, which would increase total losses and the percentage of those losing."

As for the materiality of the lead tests (actual lead test results can be found at http://www.frauddiscovery.net), the below graph summarizes the results of testing on a Usana Health Sciences product and has found outrageous results.

One serving of the Usana Macro-Optimizers Nutrimeal Shake contains over 6.7 micrograms of lead, 1,252% more than the level allowed under California's Proposition 65. If taken twice a day as suggested on the Nutrimeal label, an individual will consume 13.4 micrograms of lead a day, or 2,584% more than allowed under Prop 65. Herbalife did not fair much better.
