Let us take a close look at the interesting list Top 10 worst products which are generally considered as junk items.
1. Bottled Water
This product tops the list of worst products of modern times and it is an utter waste of resources and money. It banks on an extremely irritating marketing concept of being superior bottled water while we have easy access to safe tap water.
2. Sugared Cereals
What a stroke of genius of having to take something healthy and adding it with lots of sugar to become more appealing to the younger segment in the market.
3. Ab Machines
The massive commercials being resorted to has created a lot of misplaced notions about these supposedly amazing machines. Once we have tried it, these machines normally end up in our storage or in the garage and never to be used again.
4. Microwave Ovens
Despite being the symbol of modern day living, the microwave ovens have been responsible for the lack of decent cooking in most modern homes and even led to the emergence of “chemically-laden” ready meals in the food market.
5. Sleeping Pills for Children
The sleeping pill was introduced by Takeda Pharmaceuticals and has targeted pre-pubescent and pubescent individuals. They were able to devise a work around to US marketing laws in promoting the product without mentioning that there has been no test that was conducted to determine the effect of this product on children.
6. Self Help Books
Most self-help books don’t deliver on their promise. These are generally overblown product of marketing gimmicks that will just “help” people part with their hard-earned dollar.
7. Cough Mixtures
Instead of buying these incredibly expensive products, you are better off with an ample rest and healthy eating habits. You can get relief with a concoction made out of vinegar, honey and beaten egg white.
8. Diet Products
There are a lot of diet products available in the market that can take any position in the spectrum in terms of safety features. There are those that are extremely safe while there are also products that are disturbingly harmful to our health.
9. Disposable Razors
The companies that make these products have virtually found their manna with these razor blades which easily turn blunt after a few uses.
10. Disposable Plates and Other Eating Implements
This disposable eating implements are the norm of present day living and we seem to not mind the utter waste of hard-earned money every time we throw them away after use.
