Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 492 – Groundbreaking news
“Professor Sun, this is the reporter, director, and host, Sui Junyi. Reporter Sui, this is the Beijing University’s, Professor Sun. The expert in biochemistry.”
“Eh…… I cannot be considered an expert. I had only conducted more research than others.” Professor Sun laughed and waved his hand.
This type of professors does not like money. They only go after fame! Feng Yu calls him an expert in his field, and he was overjoyed.
“Hello, Professor Sun. Are you the person who had conducted tests on the Chinese Turtle Essence? Are the results out?”
“The results are out. What Turtle Essence? If you can find any components in this product that is related to turtles, I will write my name backward from then on! This is just water with some sweetener! Those evil businessmen! This is the test report, and it is signed off by my assistants and me.” Professor Sun was furious. This product was selling for more than 100 RMB a box? It was not even worth 1 cent! Drinking plain water was healthier than this!
Sui Junyi frowned. This Chinese Turtle Essence was really water with sweetener as what Feng Yu had claimed!
“What about the test for the Energy of Life?” Sui Junyi continued to ask.
“This product does have some health benefits. But to claim that it will increase the vitality or whatever other benefits, are all bullshit! We don’t need to talk about large scale production. It only cost less than 20 RMB even if produce in our laboratories. How can this product be sold at such high prices?! Also, this brand of liquid health supplement, this XX essences, etc. all does not have the benefits they claim!” Professor Sun angrily said.
Professor Sun had researched on Gluconate Zinc, Gluconate Calcium and they were only selling for a few RMB for a small box. If it were the same packaging as the Energy of Life, it would only cost about 20 RMB in retail stores. How can this Energy of Life be sold at such high prices? This was cheating. Also, these few liquid supplements in the market had exaggerated their claims. They were all cheating the consumers!
“Manager Feng, is Professor Sun, the only person who had conducted tests on these products?” Sui Junyi asked.
“What do you mean? My assistants are also involved. Can’t you see their signatures in the report? Are you suspecting me of making a false report?” Professor Sun was furious. This Report Sui doubted his professionalism!
“Calm down Professor Sun. Reporter Sui does not mean that. Tests should not be conducted by only one institution. Reporter Sui, I had also engaged Beijing Medical University, Beijing 4th General Hospital, People’s Liberation Army Hospital, Military Hospital, and other institutions. There is a total of 14 institutions that are conducting independent tests. All of them are specialist in this field. I will bring you to each of them.”
Feng Yu would not be so dumb to hire one person or one institute to conduct tests on these products. He needs concrete evidence to prevent those businessmen behind these products from escaping!
Within 3 days, Reporter Sui interviewed more than a dozen experts and professors. He had a stack of test results. These were the test results on 12 health products in the market. Each product was tested by 3 independent institutes. 4 of these products had advertised on CCTV. The rest were advertising on the local TV stations, newspapers and radio stations. All of them had exaggerated the benefits!
5 out of the 12 health products were confirmed to be fake products with no benefits to a person’s health. Although the rest of the products were not considered fake products, the ingredients do not meet the claimed benefits. This was also against the regulations!
Sui Junyi saw the reports and heard what the experts said. He was shocked! All of these products had problems. Not a single one was safe!
Sui Junyi spent one day on editing the interview footages. But he discovered that he had overshot the time limit. was only an 18 minutes segment. The footage he edited was almost 30 minutes!
Sui Junyi felt all the footages he captured were essential and should not be left out. He still got to visit the related companies to interview people secretly. This episode might be over an hour!
Whatever. Finish the episode first, and we will talk about the rest later!
Sui Junyi brought one of his colleagues to the Chinese Turtle Essence factory to conduct interviews. He does not have time to visit the other factories and also those products were not as popular as this Chinese Turtle Essence!
“Eh, switch on the TV. There is a special episode of today!” Someone said after hanging up the phone. He was not looking well.
“What special episode? ? What’s so nice about this program? It’s your turn to throw a tile. San Wan, do you want?” The person beside said. They were playing Mahjong.
“Ehehehe…… Old Wu, what are you doing? You really must watch TV? Are we still continuing with this game?” Another Mahjong player asked.
“I am not playing. I want to watch TV!” Old Wu immediately switch on the TV and tuned in to CCTV channel.
The rest of the Mahjong players saw Old Wu’s attitude and knew that something terrible had happened. When they looked at the TV program, they were shocked too. Why was reporting on health products? They were all shareholders of a type of health product – Hercules wine!
“…… based on our market research, there are more than 30 commonly seen health products in the market. These products claim to improve blood circulation, vitality, memories, increase lifespan, etc. But after our investigations, we were shocked by the results. We had conducted a random test on 12 of these health products in the market…….” Bai Yansong said. Old Wu and the rest felt their hearts sinking.
Their Hercules Wine was a health product that claims to have increases libido effect.
Immediately, they saw the list of products sent for the tests. Their Hercules Wine was one of the products that were tested!
When Old Wu and the rest started this business, they were trying all means to increase the sales, trying to catch up with the other products. But now, they were regretting. Why did was their sales so high? If their product had not performed so well, they might not be chosen to be tested.
“The results were unbelievable. After randomly testing 12 products in the market, none of them had passed the tests! Not a single product was up to standard! Some of these products had problems with the ratio of the ingredients, some of these products were lacking in the ingredients. Some of these products do not even have the stated ingredients in them! All these 12 products belong to 12 different companies, and only 8 of these companies had the permits to sell and manufacture health products. The other 4 companies do not even have any past experiences of manufacturing health products!”
“2 of the products from these 8 companies do not even have the product serial numbers! One company even printed the product serial number of another food product! The quality of the products for the 5 companies that had all the permits and approval also had serious problems. I can name a few examples……”
Old Wu and the rest slumped back into their chairs. They knew that they were finished! This was already reported on CCTV. There was no way to escape. At the same time, the bosses of almost all of the health products were panicking. All of them were thinking of ways to avoid punishments!
The office door of Li Jiayu, the boss of the Chinese Turtle Essence, was kicked open. Even the lock was damaged. He immediately stood up, and his female secretary sat up and tidied her clothes.
“What’s wrong? I had said before that without my orders, no one is supposed to enter my office. You are fired!” Li Jiayu roared.
The person who barged into the office said in a rush: “Director Li, something bad had happened……”
