We have an elderly friend who takes medication for a heart problem. Unfortunately, she believes all the nonsense spouted by the modern snake oil peddlars so whenever something new comes along (the most recent was the blue-algae pills) she stops taking her meds and starts taking the new stuff. Every time this happens she eventually ends up in the hospital where she gets put back on her meds until she is stable. This has been the case for magnet therapy, honey, birch water, oxygenated water and who knows what else. Hospitalized every time. All these bullshit treatments come at a ridiculous price.
