Miracle cure or marketing scam?

Some herbal remedies and dietary supplements are advertised as having amazing healing properties. Take these claims with a grain of salt. Scammers have perfected ways to convince you that their products are the best. They often target people with serious or chronic medical conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes and cancer. Remember if a product sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Talk to your doctor about any supplements you're considering.
