Description

Dateline's investigation into alternative health tests revealed practitioners using unscientific tests, making false diagnoses and selling expensive nutritional supplements as the cure. To expose this dangerous practice, Dateline found a world class athlete in excellent health to go undercover. After passing a complete physical, Dateline sent the athlete to alternative medicine promoters practicing applied kinesiology, live blood cell analysis and iridology. The results of every test found the star athlete had ailments as diverse as a breast problem to a malfunctioning thyroid. Most of the practitioners were quick to offer expensive remedies.
