A post copied from Wikipedia re Gary Null, long a premium contributor to KPFK. Confirmation of what is factual and what is assume should always be done but that takes more dedicated work. Meanwhile this is of interest to KPFK listeners in Los Angeles because Gary has been on air here for so many years, loved, disliked, distrusted, adored and purchased by many here thru KPFK's audio weekly. Add or change this with comments if you know more actualities. No slamming please !
Null owns Gary Null & Associates, a company that markets dietary supplements, as well as a health food store in New York City. In 2010, Null claimed that he was sickened and nearly killed by his own dietary supplements. On 27 April 2010, The New York Daily News reported that Null had filed a $10 million lawsuit against Triarco Industries in Manhattan Supreme Court, accusing the manufacturer of "botching" its work on "Gary Null's Ultimate Power Meal" through inadequate manufacturing and safety testing, leading to the hospitalization of six consumers for severe kidney damage.
The suit alleges that the supplement contained 1,000 times the labelled dose of Vitamin D. Null reportedly suffered severe pain and kidney damage from "Gary Null's Ultimate Power Meal", but continued consuming the supplement in the belief that it would relieve his symptoms.
The Los Angeles Times wrote that Null's experience "should give pause to anyone lured by the extravagant claims of many supplements makers", and said that it was common for dietary supplements to contain doses "wildly different than those indicated on their label" as a result of weak regulation. Null's attorney said the alleged vitamin poisoning was an isolated incident, adding: "We don't want anything to affect the physical well-being of anyone or the reputation of the company."
What else do we the KPFK listener payees not know of what is being told, sold, used, given, owed or contracted with Gary Null? huh ? Why are all the not-so-nice things kept so-very-secret ?
