A postscript about annoying pop-up ads

As you browse our site you may find your screen taken over by pop-up ads for diet products or weight related services. Those ads DO NOT come from us! They appear because the owners of your Internet service provider, or the search engine you use, or your browser, have, for a fee, allowed advertisers to link Websites to advertisements for so-called related products. We condemn this process but have no control over it. Thank you for your understanding.

If you want to get rid of pop-ups, go to the search engine Google and put “pop up killer” (without the quotation marks) in the search box. Then click on Google Search, and you will be taken to a list of applications that will block these intrusive windows. Find the one that seems to best meet your needs and follow site instructions for downloading or ordering.

ANRED has no relationship whatsoever with advertisers who use pop-up ads or with providers of pop-up-killer software.
