Blah blah blah blah...
translation...More poor writing about people who are trying to assasinate me; more blah blah blah that you can read hundreds of places with true detail but if you want detail from me, go to my website and sign up for my newsletter for $$$$...
I read book 1, a library copy, and someone gave me brandnew copies of each. I wouldn't recommend buying either book for real money. A credit maybe, that you could get back after you slam the books shut in disgust and repost...
This book should have a minus-star rating. It's a bogus rant. Google author's name and see many references to "scam", "consumer complaints", "real or scam?", "fraud or consumer advocate?", and so on. Don't be duped.
Trudeau, the author, is a convicted felon (fraud, larceny), huckster, and conspiracy theorist.
Much of the information in this book is not only merely incorrect, but actively harmful. Some of the claims, such as would make a 19th century snake-oil salesman blush. "If your body is alkaline, you cannot get cancer ... and if you have cancer, it goes away." One of the "cures" contained in the book is a recommendation of Dianetics, Scientology pseudoscience.
Here's my secret "he" doesn't want you to know about: Pharmaceuticals don't give you AIDS or lupus, despite what Trudeau says.
For your own sake, *please* seek the advice of someone who knows something about medicine. Or at least someone who isn't trying to defraud those of us who don't.
Dismal spewing of Trudeau's whacky ideas:useless, deserves -10 stars
What Kevin Trudeau doesn't want you to know
The author of the bestselling "Natural Cures 'They' Don't Want You to Know About" claims to be a consumer advocate in the Ralph Nader mold. But the infomercial king just wants your cash.
By Christopher Dreher
Jul 29, 2005 | Many a late-night channel surfer has been numbed to sleep by endless infomercials hawking ab machines, penis enlargers, psychic readings and baldness cures. But how about a 30-minute faux talk show featuring a slick "expert author" who promises natural cures for cancer, diabetes and chronic fatigue syndrome and who claims that the FDA, drug companies and food industry have withheld such cures from the public in order to keep making bigger and bigger profits?
Step right up folks, and tune in to the paranoid world of master huckster Kevin Trudeau, whose book "Natural Cures 'They' Don't Want You to Know About" climbed to the top spot on the New York Times bestseller list for advice titles last weekend. The Federal Trade Commission virtually banned Trudeau from the airwaves last year in an attempt to "shut down an infomercial empire that has misled American consumers for years." But by shifting his business model from selling supposed cure-all products to peddling books, which are protected by the First Amendment, Trudeau has been able to slip past federal regulators and continue to sell snake oil to the masses -- first through his infomercial and now via mainstream book retailers like Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
Reno R. Rollé, an executive consultant who handles U.S. retail and international distribution for "Natural Cures," says the book has sold nearly 3 million copies since the infomercial debuted in September 2004, and he sees no end in sight to its success. "No one knows where this thing is going to max out. We're just printing as many books as we can," Rollé says. "We're poised to make history here. What we're doing could revolutionize the book publishing industry."
Even before hitting the bestseller list, Trudeau, who is in his early 40s, had built a billion-dollar empire as a prolific infomercialteer, selling various health and self-improvement products under the cover of night. This despite a two-year stint in federal prison in the early '90s after pleading guilty to credit card fraud, and a 1996 tangle with the Illinois attorney general, who accused him of running a pyramid scheme while working for a health-products company called Nutrition for Life. Trudeau and a co-defendant settled that case, paying $185,000 to Illinois and seven other states; during that time, the U.S. Postal Service and Securities and Exchange Commission also investigated his business dealings.

Elizabeth C. (izzystella) reviewed More Natural Cures Revealed: Previously Censored Brand Name Products That Cure Disease on
He is a bit of a "know it all" but some of his points are good...e.g. don't treat the symptoms, treat the problem - why do you have a headache, etc. It remains to be seen whether his advice of "never taking any medications because they are poison" (OTC or RX) is true. He bascially says everything is poison (processed food, fruits/veggies/meat) - I'd love to know what he eats besides home juiced carrot juice!
After I waded through Kevin Trudeau's massive theories on a medical conspiracy to keep Americans sick, I found myself wondering what all the fuss was about. His theories about food affecting people differently and possibly accounting for individual reactions and/or disease, are really not that different than what my grandmother passed on. I remember her saying,"You are what you eat!". Frankly, I had to look hard to find cures for any disease in this book. This book is more about what you should do, in Mr. Trudeau's opinion, to avoid getting sick.
This book had some good things in it about healthy/homeopathic living. The only problem was you had to dig for them in all the crap about the government and Mr. Trudeau's personal problems. I found this to be annoying. I found a lot in this book that was helpful, though, thus the rating.
This book is great and we highly recommend it if you have not yet read it. Very informative. You may disagree with a lot that he says but even so the suggestions he makes about improving your health are very important. He gives names of companies that make things that are good for you and includes in most all of them, their websites and phone numbers. If you have access to the web you can improve your health just by looking up stuff he talks about.
The US Federal Trade Commission censored Trudeau;s first book. Hundreds of thousands of people have reported better health and the curing of their diseases without drugs and surgery after reading it. Now Trudeau goes had-to-head against governments worldwide.
Kevin Trudeau is a consumer advocate and exposer of corporate and government corruption and filing law suits against them. He tells how we can have better health without using drugs. His websites are: www.naturalcures.com; www.the whistleblower.com; www.kevinfightsback.com.
