Should I be surprised that Facebook still have a page for this scam, with a link to the new website promoting it?
The UK’s advertising watchdog has given a socially distanced, liberally hand-sanitised slap to a firm marketing a gizmo it claimed could clear the air of the coronavirus that causes the COVID-19 respiratory disease.

And if you're not, why is there not a full-blown inquiry including a police raid and prosecution follow-up ?
These shysters stuck their head up too far, it should be cut off sharply.

The article is wrong about rectal crystals, a lingam stone is more highly recommended for balancing and realigning chakras.
Lingam stones are elongated pebbles found in the Narmada holy river in India, brown, they look like a polished turd and are about as useful.
For a modest pecuniary donation to my personal chakra realignment fund, I can give you a therapeutic slap that will jolt enlightenment into every chakra at once.

You can never get them all... but the trick is to whack hard enough and often enough to convince most of them that popping up isn't the best of ideas.
To put it in other words, I never succeed in mowing my lawn - the grass still keeps growing even after I cut it. But I can keep it at a manageable level.
