I need two examples of pseudo science. Well I need two ads of pseudo science. I'm just having a hard time of coming up with two. My teacher gave the example of tooth paste so that one is out. Thank you in advance!!

When the ad says 4 out of 5 doctors recommend.... 

Oh I know. There's an ad for something that says one of the ingredients in the competitor is only one molecule away from plastic- implying that the ingredient is plastic, which it isn't. For example, carbon dioxide, is a molecule away from carbon monoxide, but isn't poisonous. But I can't think of what the product is that says this.

Sorry I'm not being much help, I can't think of product names.

I found one by googling. Ivory soap-  99.44% pure. so pure that it floats.- the implication that the purity makes it float, when actually it is that it is full of air.
