Why would people pay: for expensive ads to state what you have heard? Could it be that they are selling fear (easiest way to catch the attention of all humans) in order to sell something else? Such as more addictive higher$margin sugar cola; claimed to be all natural because contains sugar. Yet our bodies evolved from nomadic hunter/gatherer ancestors & I don't think they ever gathered much sugar in forests or plains.
