"Wouldn't go anywhere else," Z-Weight Loss client asserts
SCOTTSDALE – At Z-Weight Loss, they want those who are seeking to lose weight to know that as of Dec. 6, 2011, the FDA has prohibited the sale of OTC and "homeopathic" hCG and declared it fraudulent and illegal. As they say, don't try this at home! Give the professionals at Z-Weight Loss a call, being confident they only use medical-grade and doctor-supervised hCG.
Z-Weight Loss client Vanessa Clark is well aware of the value and effectiveness of using REAL hCG; she's been a satisfied and slimmer customer for over two years. "They are amazing and I highly recommend them," she enthused of the team at Z-Weight.
One aspect that proved lifesaving to Clark was the required medical exam prior to using hCG. "Dr. Vesco noticed my neck was swollen and said we couldn't begin the program until I had it checked out." A faulty thyroid was diagnosed, resulting in surgery! Since she attributed her symptoms to carrying a few extra pounds, Clark would have gone untreated had she simply tried to buy the now-banned over-the-counter hCG. "I'd rather spend a little more to do it the right way," she said of losing weight.
Of shedding a pound a day she offered, "It's more of an adjustment and requires dedication more so than being hard." Clark opts for the hCG injections rather than liquid under the tongue. "The needles are tiny and don't hurt." And appointments are easy to make at Z-Weight. "I can normally call and get in the next day," she explained.
Curious? Call Z-Weight Loss at 480-570-9200 to learn more or schedule a pre-hCG plan exam.

Leaked Pacific trade pact exempts foreign firms from U.S. law?
FAIRFAX, Va. – Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement reacting to a leaked version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact with Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam:
"These new trade agreements will place domestic U.S. firms that do not do business overseas at a competitive disadvantage. Based on these leaked documents, foreign firms under this trade pact could conceivably appeal federal regulatory and court rulings against them to an international tribunal with the apparent authority to overrule our sovereignty. If foreign companies want to do business in America, they should have to follow the same rules as everyone else. No special favors.
"It is telling that the only apparent way these Pacific nations will enter a free trade agreement with the U.S. is if they are exempt from our onerous environmental and financial regulations that make it cost-ineffective to do business here. Instead of making these foreign firms exempt from these burdensome rules, they should just repeal the regulations and make it cheaper to do business here.
"This poses an even wider problem, though. Obama is negotiating a trade pact that would constitute a judicial authority higher than even the U.S. Supreme Court that could overrule federal court rulings applying U.S. law to foreign companies. That is unconstitutional. The U.S. cannot be allowed to enter a treaty that would abrogate our Constitution.
"This tribunal needs to be removed from this agreement, and no foreign company doing business on our soil should have a competitive advantage, created by some a dumb agreement, over American companies. What is Obama thinking? He is placing international organizations above the interests of our own country."
