Sister’s Health Has Deteriorated from Using Health and Diet Scams
Mar. 25, 2015
My sister’s email box is continuously flooded with scams for one thing or another. She has been losing weight by going up and down for the past 20 years by using some of these health and diet scams but now her health is deteriorating. What can you tell me about these scams in email boxes? Health and Diet Scams, Louisiana
Dear Health and Diet Scams:
Many email boxes today are continuously flooded with scams for one thing or another and people today are really gullible. Most email providers or individuals have set up their inbox so that these spam emails goes directly into the spam folders so they can be deleted.
Pills that let you lose weight without exercising or changing your diet, herbal formulas that melt your fat cells so that they are absorbed by your body, and cures for impotence and hair loss are among the scams flooding most email boxes today. But these gimmicks don’t work! The fact is that successful weight loss requires a reduction in calories and an increase in physical activity.
Beware of these “KEY WORDS” on products -- case histories from “cured” consumers claiming amazing results; testimonials from “famous” medical experts you’ve never heard of; claims that the product is available from only one source or for a limited time; and ads that use phrases like “scientific breakthrough,” “miraculous cure,” “exclusive product,” “secret formula,” and “ancient ingredient.”
These are all ways that consumers get hooked on these health and diet scams. To learn about how the human body operates read my health book “How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide toBecoming Healthier Over the Next 30 Days.”
