Natural treatments: Can you spot a fraud?

If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. To spot potentially fraudulent herbal products or other so-called natural treatments, look for these warning signs: 1. Promotional material promises a miracle cure. 2. The manufacturer claims that the product can treat a wide range of symptoms, or cure or prevent a variety of diseases. 3. The product claims to purify or detoxify.
