About time. It's always amazed me that if someone hawks a bottle of
water for $40 and says "put a few drops of this in your gas tank and
you'll get a smoother ride and better milage", he'll be put in jail for
fraud where he belongs. But let him sell the same bottle with the
equally preposterous claim that it will increase your body's energy or
burn fat or something, and suddenly he's an oppressed practitioner of
alternative medicine.

A con man is a con man. The fact that he may call himself a
"Naturopathic Physician" doesn't change that.
