Consumer advocacy organization ( has alerted ABC, NBC, Turner Broadcasting, Fox Broadcasting, and The Weather Channel, to the airing of "deceptive ads for Prevagen", marketed by Quincy Bioscience as a "brain supplement" purported to improve memory in 90 days.

The ads for Prevagen have aired thousands of times; Quincy Bioscience has sold over two million bottles since the product's launch in 2007. A investigation reports however that the company "does not have the required scientific evidence to support its improved memory claims" and that they "constitute clear violations of each network's advertising guidelines".
