A search of medical journals unearthed no papers published about OSR#1, though the compound's industrial uses have been explored in publications such as the Journal of Hazardous Materials.

Federal law requires manufacturers to explain why a new dietary ingredient reasonably can be expected to be safe. The Food and Drug Administration told the Tribune that Haley had not submitted sufficient information.

In an interview, Haley said that the compound had been tested on rats and that a food safety study was conducted on 10 people. Asked to provide documentation of the studies, he stopped communicating with the Tribune.

The Web site also states that OSR#1 "scavenges" hydroxyl free radicals, "allowing the body to maintain its own natural detoxifying capacity."

But Vanderbilt's Roberts said that claim is absurd.

"Hydroxyl radicals are the most reactive radicals that are formed," he wrote to the Tribune. "They oxidize everything, so in essence all molecules are hydroxyl radical scavengers."


Step 1: Make snake-oil.
Step 2: Sell snake-oil.
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Profit!!!

(Edit) Win for skeptical journalism, though, although they could have been a bit more harsh on the anecdotal evidence (the only evidence they offered).

After 12 years, underpants gnomes are still relevant.

No need for Step 3, it is covered in Step 2.
