Health is a harsh topic. It is about us! Our body, our mind, our feelings and emotions. It's also something we tend to think about only when it's missing...
It makes me sad to see people (?human?) that try to take advantage of the desperate state some person are on, to sell a product, to get money.
Hubs are also used to that. "Snake oil" is sold in many forms, for instance the cure cancer in 7 days formula... Faux users are created, comments are manipulated, all to get the gullable and dying traffic to buy a hope that's just a lie...
Things like this make me angry... Just needed to share my thoughts on this, sorry if I was incovenient in any way.
I couldn't agree more, anime_nanet!
I do have a hub that deals with weight loss issues ( http://hubpages.com/hub/Getting-Rid-Of-Love-Handles ), but I am trying my best to point out the fact that if you want to succeed in something, you have to TRY, and that is exactly what people are lacking the most - action. So, in order to urge themselves to move toward their goal, it is best if they have a program, or a technique, or whatever, that will help them achieve that. Do you think they are more likely to go along with a program like that they have paid for? I think so.
As for the "the cure cancer in 7 days formula" and the like - those people are just obnoxious!

The new layout explodes the prominence of the related hubs images down the right side of the page. This image appears before all the ads, apart from the Google adsense ad above the title. Related hubs get an absolutely free ride aboard all the articles that attract hits from search engines through...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...
