United States Senate Special Committee on Aging

Hearing on Swindlers, Hucksters and Snake Oil Salesmen:
The Hype and Hope of Marketing Anti-Aging Products to Seniors
September 10, 2001

Testimony of A. Glenn Braswell, President, and
Ron Tepper, Editor, Journal of Longevity
G.B. Data Systems, Marina Del Ray, California

Mr. Braswell and Mr. Tepper were supoenaed and came to the hearing accompanied by their attorneys. Both answered a few questions with prepared statements that, upon advice of their attorneys, they would exercise their Fifth Amendment right to refuse to answer questions that might incriminate them. After several such refusals, the committee concluded that further questions would be a waste of time and dismissed the pair. Several observers have commented that Braswell was very thin and looked chronically ill.
