The REAL Story: Hoodoba® Hoodia Diet Pills on 60 Minutes
Historical First-Nov. 21, 2004. Hoodoba® Hoodia diet pills featured on 60 Minutes:
After testing Hoodoba® Hoodia diet pills
and confirming their effectiveness, CBS News sent 60 Minutes
reporter Leslie Stahl to South Africa to investigate, igniting the firestorm of interest that followed:

, Stahl and her team located an experienced tracker named Toppies Kruiper, a local SAN aborigine Bushman, to help find Hoodia gordonii
Asked how Hoodia worked for her, CBS News correspondent Lesley Stahl said she had no after effects - or racing heart. She had no desire to eat all day. "I'd have to say it did work," says Stahl.
The story concluded that the Hoodia gordonii
plant could likely become the greatest weapon
in the war against obesity ever discovered.

They go to great lengths to insinuate and imply that it was their diet pills were the ones featured, but always stop short by saying "X Hoodia" was seen on 60 Minutes, because they CANNOT
explicitly state that their diet pills were the diet pills "featured".
Additionally, for the most part, the products that continue to make these false and misleading claims, are not subject to ongoing random testing
, and their exact contents are not really known.
