Mitch Biggs Claims MonaVie Prevents Swine Flu

Comments

It came to my attention about a month ago that MonaVie Distributor Mitch Biggs has been making illegal medicinal claims about MonaVie and Swine Flu. Mitch and Ashley Biggs from Richmond, VA are Emerald Executive Monavie distributors (ID #181540). For reference, according to MonaVie’s Income Disclosure Statement (as of June 6th, 2010), an Emerald distributor earns more than 99.821% of all active distributors (have sponsored people, received non-retail bonuses, etc. – more details in the link above). Only 166 distributors of MonaVie rank the same or higher than Mitch Biggs. Clearly with that success and high ranking, Mitch Biggs should be a shinning example of what MonaVie stands for.

You can find his MonaVie page at the poorly spelled https://mymonavie.com/retireerly. That page name right there tells you their motivation for spreading the word about MonaVie. (Hint: It’s not about the value of the juice.)

Mitch Biggs wrote a couple of articles on Associate Content for the whole world to see. He even linked to his MonaVie page so people could read the content and sign up under him. That’s all fine, unless the articles are making illegal medicinal claims about MonaVie.

Page 1 of the article has no mention of MonaVie. You’ll want to click the image to see full details:

Here’s Page 2 of the article with the mention of MonaVie (again click for full size):

I am showing you images of these pages because I have informed MonaVie and they have taken them down (more on that later). As of now you can still the Google Cache of page 1 and page 2.

Here’s a quote from that second page that I find particularly alarming:

The MonaVie Pulse blend has the Resveratrol equivalent of 30 glasses of red wine.

Our family put MonaVie to the test. We refused the vaccine offered by the school system and added MonaVie Pulse to our daily regimen. While there was as much as 60% absenteeism with documented cases of Swine Flu in each of our 3 children’s classes, none of us were affected. My wife and I added a little red wine to be on the safe side.

There’s obvious logic flaws going on here. If resveratrol stops Swine Flu (it doesn’t, but that’s Mitch Biggs’ claim on page 1), and MonaVie contains the resveratrol equivalent of 30 glasses of red wine… why would he and his wife, “add a little red wine to be on the safe side”? Is he thinking that extra 3 percent of resveratrol coming from wine is really staying on the safe side. And if you are going to “stay on the safe side”, it’s an all around bad idea refuse a vaccine and make your children test subjects with something potentially life threatening. Isn’t this the kind of thing that you report to the Department of Social Services? I don’t know, but just in case someone wants to investigate that further, here’s a link to Virginia’s DSS.

In MonaVie’s Distributor Guidelines, MonaVie makes clear that claims have to be “subject to typical results.” Mitch Biggs’ “putting his family to the test” does not qualify as typical results. Lastly, and one of the most important things to take away from this is that MonaVie is not approved to prevent or treat Swine Flu in anyway… and Mitch Biggs is clearly claiming prevention.

(By the way, Mitch if you are reading this, this article isn’t meant to be personal. It’s meant to be more of a reflection of MonaVie’s educational process and how their method of distribution should be abolished. Clearly even top people in the organization like yourself are either not getting educated about the product or are purposely trying to scam your way to an early retirement. It has to be one of the two.)

    Swine Flu Vaccine doesn’t do anything anyway…..Lol……..But it’s pretty much common sense if you take antioxidants it will help fight against viruses such as swine flu what’s the issue here?

  2. MonaVie Scam Says:

    Swine Flu Vaccine doesn’t do anything? Why do you think it was created?

    By your logic above, do you really think that MonaVie (or any other antioxidant you choose) is going to help you against HIV? What kind of logic are you using?

  3. Anonymous Aussie Says:

    Steve D – you consistently embarrass yourself.

    My daughter is only a teenager and she could explain in basic terms how vaccines work and why!

    Not only is the ORAC score of Monavie extremely low (22.81 to be precise, as confirmed by Monavie’s own Dr Alexander Schauss), not only does Monavie contain low levels of phenolics (once again, as confirmed by Dr Schauss), but it appears that the IQ of Monavie’s own sales force (as demonstrated by Steve D) is in the vicinity of around 22.81 also!

    I’m torn between laughing at the absurdity of Steve D’s comment and feeling bad that Monavie are taking advantage of people who are clearly farking clueless.

  4. Krzysztof Mazurek Says:

    Anonymous Aussie – your comment about IQ is offensive.

    Personally I do not think people buying MonaVie products is a bad thing. If they feel better – why would you take it away from them? As grownups they can make their own choice whether they buy the juice or not. The Coca-cola company sells a product that is not healthy by any means, yet the commercials depict people becoming all happy after taking a sip. You know it does not do you any good, yet you drink it. They do not provide any negative details about unhealthy components of the beverage in their commercials or marketing campaign. Take aspartame for example.

    Similar thing with MonaVie. If someone experiences improvement, even if it is just a placebo effect – let him buy and consume it, he or she is a grownup. It is their money, I am pretty positive you would not like anyone to tell you what you must or must not spend money on. Besides, it is not as if anyone is forcing the consumer to buy MonaVie products. Its all a personal choice.

    And as far as the vaccines are concerned I shall not even comment, WHO just made a big fuss about it and someone made a lot of money. Let us look little bit more critically on everything.

    Best Regards,

    As a PS to my previous comment:

    MonaVie indeed tried to make some money off the supposed pandemic, I agree. But hey, drinking juice is definitely better than taking a shot which what you are not even sure is composed of.

    And by the way, I do not sell nor buy the product. Just my personal view on the “battle”.

  6. MonaVie Scam Says:

    Mazurek,

    I see what you are saying about Aussie’s IQ comments. It’s offensive to think that anyone associated with MonaVie has an IQ over 15, much less get to 22.

    The Coca-Cola argument has already been discussed. See MonaVie, Secret Formulas, and Coca-Cola. It is not a similar thing to MonaVie.

    I’m fine if people choose to buy MonaVie as long they have the facts. How many people bought MonaVie because Mitch Biggs lied to them and said that it help against Swine Flu? Remove all these illegal and false claims and put it on the store shelf and let’s see how it sells. Consumers will still have the option of buying the product.

  7. MonaVie Scam Says:

    By what (lack of) logic is an ounce or two of nutritionally-lacking juice better than a clinically tested vaccine?

  8. Vogel Says:

    Mind boggling nonsense isn’t it?

  9. Anonymous Aussie Says:

    Krzysztof Mazurek is offended by my comment concerning IQ.

    Krzysztof Mazurek also states “If someone experiences improvement, even if it is just a placebo effect – let him buy and consume it, he or she is a grownup. It is their money, I am pretty positive you would not like anyone to tell you what you must or must not spend money on. Besides, it is not as if anyone is forcing the consumer to buy MonaVie products. Its all a personal choice.”

    Krzysztof – perhaps you should consider what a placebo effect is and why this can occur…

    “A placebo is a sham or simulated medical intervention that can produce a placebo effect. In medical research, placebos depend on the use of controlled and measured deception. Common placebos are inert tablets, sham surgery, and other procedures based on false information. In one common placebo procedure, a patient is given an inert pill, told that it may improve his/her condition, but not told that it is in fact inert. Such an intervention may cause the patient to believe the treatment will change his/her condition; and this belief may produce a subjective perception of a therapeutic effect, causing the patient to feel their condition has improved. This phenomenon is known as the placebo effect.”
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Placebo

    Every Monavie training seminar I have attended with my friend included the use of distributor’s personal “testimonials” whereby they attributed the use of Monavie to improvement of various conditions such as lowering blood pressure, improvement of auto-immune disorders, improving skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, improving quality of sleep and more.

    Taking into consideration the concept of a placebo effect and taking into consideration that Monavie’s own literature confirms that Monavie does not treat, cure or improve the symptoms of any disease or condition, is it not reasonable to conclude that IF people are experiencing a placebo effect it’s probably due to hearing testimonials similar to those as I’ve just described – claims which are not only medically unfounded, against company policy but also ILLEGAL?

    Furthermore, is it also not reasonable to conclude that these medically unfounded, bogus claims (which are in breach of company policy and the law) have also served to trick consumers into handing over hard earned money for a product which they may well NOT have had the true value been represented in the first instance?

    I find your complacency regarding FRAUD far more offensive.

    Your ludicrous comment whereby you suggest that drinking a highly processed, nutritionally void fruit juice is better than a scientifically proven shot confirms Lazyman’s statement that my estimate of a distributor’s IQ being 22.81 was too generous in any event.

    My bad, Lazyman.

  10. Rasheed Says:

    Well, to look on the bright side, MonaVie is educating some people. Like Lazyman, Anonymous Aussie, Vogel, and myself. We are always confounded by the crazy claims distributors will make.

    I especially am confounded that distributors will not abide to MonaVie’s Policies and Procedures. Hint: it wasn’t written for fun. You are violating a contract by disobeying them and you will NEVER achieve success even if you sponsor a thousand people. If we so much as tell MonaVie corporate that a high-paying distributor is violating his distributor contract, MonaVie can terminate that distributor and not pay him a cent. Oh, they keep all the customers though. How does it make you feel that you spent a lot of time and effort (and money!) just to be shot down because you didn’t want to read the damn thing you signed?? READ IT. Don’t you think about coming back to this site til you READ IT.

    It’s really not our problem if you guys don’t want to read and abide by the Policies you agreed to abide by. But don’t say we warned you.

  11. Izzy Says:

    Well, there were reported cases in my city for Swine Flu, and our family never got the vaccine, and our family wasn’t drinking Monavie and our family never got swine flu.

    Oh, and we weren’t drinking red wine, either :-p
