In 2011, I included a note here about Kevin Trudeau, who published a book in 2005 called Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About.* According to Wikipedia, the book was criticized for containing “no natural cures.”
Trudeau is in the news again after being sentenced to 10 years in prison for false claims in another book, The Weight Loss Cure “They” Don’t Want You To Know About.
The book, which claims a “diet-free” method to losing weight, actually outlines a 500-calorie-a-day diet. That’s like eating only one plain bagel with cream cheese per day, and then crying out the extra 50 calories because you’re still so hungry. The sentencing is shocking news for charlatans everywhere.
(*Important note: “They” = Federal Trade Commission. Obviously.)
