Ads for Prevagen, the memory-enhancing supplement, claim that it has "a protein originally found in jellyfish", so you know it has to be good. The company that makes the drug, Quincy Biosciences, is currently being sued in US federal court by the FTC and the New York Attorney General for "clear-cut fraud".

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the state of New York filed a federal lawsuit today over Prevagen, a pill that's supposed to improve memory.

But the supplement, which is supposed to give consumers a better memory, is rubbish.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
