QSonetimes I get so made at advertisements on T.V. that I could scream. Some of it doesn't seem true and |fliers are downright irritating. .A. Advertisers are not supposed to make a claim unless it can be proven. If you are suspicious about a commercial, the first thing to do is write letter to the advertiser. Even a few letters of criticism will cause an advertiser to question a particular commercial. ..
