The only time I'd ever met the Doctor, he was plastered and incoherent. That's not to say his products didn't work for me, which they did.<quoted text>
Whatever you heard from your upline was grossly exaggerated.
Over the last 5 years, USANA spent roughly $19 million on Research and Development. During this same time, USANA's net revenues were almost $2.4 billion.
The last thing any USANA associate should do is brag about how much USANA spends on R&D.
a measly 0.7% of USANA's net revenues goes toward R&D, which is not what most people would call significant.
BTW, Myron Wenzt sold over $18 million in stock over the past 5 years. Just last month he sold over $700,000. Why do USANA distributors keep acting like Myron doesn't make anything? Many CEOs of companies take home a minimal amount of wages, but they rack in the dough through their stocks.
Besides, if Myron was really interested in spreading health, the products would be a fourth of the price and available in retail stores all over the world. Instead, the products are grossly overpriced, and only available through a distributorship which focuses more on selling a business opportunity rather than marketing the product.
The products are obviously over-priced because of the business model. It has to cover everyone's paychecks. I'd still be using them now, if it weren't for that one thing... the price.
