Only Sam Cohen can toast ice

Only Sam Cohen can toast ice

In my opinion, Mr Sam Cohen of IHRB is the Lance Armstrong of the hair-loss industry. We heard how Armstrong kept denying everything for years; until he spilled the beans to Oprah. Mr Cohen seems to operate within the same kind of delusional framework. His fanciful explanation of what happened, seems to know no limits. […]

Catch me if you can

Catch me if you can

Despite being told to stop publishing those unlawful, misleading, and unverified advertisements, IHRB has accelerated its claims through bolder statements that are worse than ever. What’s more amazing is that IHRB was told to publish retractions. Instead, IHRB plays a game of cat and mouse. Let’s review the latest ads that appeared in ‘Spectator’ magazine. […]

IHRB avoids digital fingerprints

  It comes as no surprise that Sam Cohen of IHRB has removed his email address from his home-page and from his advertisements.

What’s your number, duckie?

What’s your number, duckie?

In 2007, the Complaints Resolution Panel reminded Mr Sam Cohen of IHRB that all advertisements for therapeutic goods must first be approved, and must display the APPROVAL NUMBER. Mr Cohen never sought approval, and he ignored the law. Then in 2011, the Panel found IHRB in Breach of the Act, and told him to stop […]

IHRB’s most secret files found

IHRB’s most secret files found

Kept under lock and key, IHRB’s secret agreements with two pharmacists have surfaced. They were Sam Cohen’s secret weapon, used to convince authorities that he does have exclusive secret herbs and natural extracts. Despite immense pressure, Sam Cohen has never shown these files to anyone. Why would he hold off? These two files are, according […]
