    TV stations in California (KTVU and KICU) have last week broadcast a video in their am, noon, and evening newscasts concerning the controversy engulfing the Lipotron / Lipo-Ex. This link will take you to the page where you can click to run the video:

    While the physician in this clip says she has done her “own research”, what she claims is merely the marketing “spin” provided by RevecoMed and their exclusive distributor Advanced Aesthetic Concepts aka Profit Solutions MD.

    Neither RevecoMed, AAC / PSMD, the physician in this video clip nor any other physicians we know of, have done the requisite ct scans, blood panels, urinalysis, stool analysis, lymphatic screenings, or other biologic metrics before, after, and during Lipotron/Lipo-Ex treatments. So making these claims is in the realm of pure fiction.

    Since the Lipotron’s / Lipo-Ex’ s effects on vital organs has never been scientifically tested, no one knows what the long-term effects are.
    No one.

    1. FDA Warning Letter 1 March 2013, finds Liptron / Lipo-Ex adulterated, mis-branded, and promoted with false claims.

      Here's the letter on the FDA web site:
