    Why is there so much spam about acai berries?

    Never even heard of them until I saw the spam wave practically everywhere... is this the new viagra or something?

    Essentially, yes. It's easy to sell and a number of companies run affiliate programs paying good commissions. It's the large number of affiliates that are doing the spamming.

    They are the current `big thing`, expected to last until the next `big thing` comes along

    The berries are a deadly poison and this is part of a global campaign to kill off some of the more ignorant internet users - the ones silly enough to actually promote spam by purchasing from the spammers.

    Do you really want to know why it's so popular all of a sudden?

    One word....

    Oprah

    Biggest marketmaker in the world right now, have her mention your book, shoot onto the best seller list. Mention some berries, now you've got the hottest nutritional supp on the market today.
