Amway Facts on The Truth About Amway
Update August 29, 2008: ibofightback has edited the web pages below with updated information.
One of the prominent supporters of Amway and Quixtar, ibofightback, has a section on his site where he lists various Amway Facts. I went through that list and found some things that I would like to amend:
- Nutrilite/Nutriway – used and endorsed by the world’s fastest hurdler, Liu Xiang: This should be changed to say “endorsed by former world record holder in the 110m hurdlers, Liu Xiang.” Liu Xiang’s record was bested by Dayron Robles of Cuba on July 8, 2008. Robles’ time of 12.87 beat Liu’s record by 0.01 seconds.
- Nutrilite/Nutriway – used and endorsed by the world’s fastest man, Asafa Powell: Powell’s world record was beaten by Jamaican compatriot Usain Bolt not once, but twice. The new record in the 100m dash is 9.69 seconds, run at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
- Alticor is the 25th largest private company in the US: According to Forbes magazine’s 2007 poll, Alticor now ranks as the 43rd largest private corporation.
At one point, these facts were true, but time and history wait for no one, and now these facts should be updated to reflect the truth today.
