Scams Exposed: Site offers sound advice on phony cancer curesHere's a sample of what you'll find on the Federal Trade Commission's new Web site, www.ftc.gov/curious
No one treatment works for every cancer or every person; be skeptical of products that make broad claims to treat cancer.
Natural doesn't mean effective -- or safe.
Bogus marketers use trickery and vague language. Testimonials may be fake -- and even if they aren't, one person's story may have nothing at all to do with your cancer diagnosis.
Scammers may use big words from a medical dictionary to sound impressive. But what does it really mean? Ask your doctor for the plain-language translation.
A money-back guarantee doesn't mean a product works.
