Formerly marketed as "Natural Choice USA", the Planet Antares web search for Planet Antares business opportunity is, for all intents and purposes, the very same thing as Natural Choice USA.

Although Antares describes this as "one of the most amazing business opportunities in America today," the promoters admit that it offers no income or earnings potential. That's perhaps the most plausible interpretation of their disclaimer that the Natural Choice USA business opportunity provides income or earnings potential of any kind.

In fact, the same promoters give the impression at their sales presentations that buying their equipment and following their guidance, it's hard not to make money. But they hope the disclaimer can avoid the risk of being held to any standard of truth.

You have to decide for yourself which is the right view to believe.
