Here's a sickening reminder of how easy it is to scam a public that doesn't understand science. Amazingly, this snake oil brochure is Number 1 on the NY Times Best-Seller list of How-To books. How is it that anyone can trust the prescriptions of a convicted fraudster with no scientific or clinical background?
Notice the con man's effective use of conspiracy theory to leverage public mistrust of large corporations. Trudeau loves to point to the "profits of multinational pharmaceutical companies" as motivation for this broad-based conspiracy to squelch natural cures (amazingly, not one of the 100,000 people he implicates has ever decided to tell all). But what about the profits from his self-published book and infomercials which have, so far, procured for him "dozens of homes and condominiums"? I mean Good God, the man has a motive.
I can't help but suspect that US consumers would think more critically about medicine if our healthcare system weren't a "black box" over which they have no control. Perhaps Consumer Driven Healthcare (CDH) will motivate consumers to critically assess their medical options (empowered by data from Healthia!).
More likely, this nonsense won't end until we stop teaching our children to trust their lives to storytellers and "spiritual leaders", and instead to make practical decisions based on empiricial evidence, as observed directly or repeatedly reported by credible witnesses.
Otherwise expect more scams like this one until natural selection kicks in to favor the consumers of scientifically valid medicine.
