FTC, RCT, POM and DNA: A Witches' Brew of Confusion for Supplement Marketers 
While the appeal of the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) order in POM Wonderful that "disease treatment" claims must be backed by two randomized controlled trials (RCT) inexorably makes its way to the Supreme Court (oral argument was heard in the D.C.

DRMA Spotlight: Argo Marketing Group — 'Growing Smiles on Customers' Faces'

“In the beginning it was just me in my apartment on my couch with a laptop and $400 cash,” says Jason Levesque, CEO and founder of Argo Marketing Group. “I could only get cell reception near the front door of my house. This was AT&T and Maine — it was horrible. And I went through that $400 pretty darn quick.”

Recently, Response caught up with Levesque for this DRMA Spotlight feature.
