The Truth About Impotence Treatment Claims
Health fraud sells false hope. Whether fraud is packaged as exotic pills and potions, phony cures or "miracle" remedies, it thrives on wishful thinking, naivete, or desperation. Fraud wastes a consumer's money, and in some cases, valuable time, especially when it causes a consumer to postpone proper treatment for a medical problem.
Recent advances in treating impotence have opened the floodgates for bogus remedies for this condition. Using the Internet and direct mail solicitations, unscrupulous businesses are capitalizing on the publicity and popularity surrounding a new medical product, exploiting consumers who are desperate for a cure. The fact of the matter: Impotence is a medical condition for which treatments are available from qualified practitioners. Don't be too embarrassed to see your physician before you begin any treatment regimen.
When it comes to healthcare or medical products that promise results-especially those for impotence-the Federal Trade Commission offers these tips for evaluating claims you may want to believe, but shouldn't.
