What Google Adsense ads do people click on the most?

I just took an interesting journey to finally find under "Adsense Setup" and "Ad Review Center" to figure out how I could block categories of ads from showing up on my websites.

I write so much on on this site about the scam ads I find, I didn't want to contribute to any of them. So I've ended up blocking the "get rich quick" category -- and most all of the others below.

I wonder what ads will show in their wake?

In the meantime, you can tell what people click on:

Includes lifts, suctions, lasers, hair removal and restoration, tattoos, and body modification.
