The Coral Calcium scam. Coral Calcium
products are on fire right now, with infomercials and brochures claiming that the miracle supplements can cure everything from fatigue to cancer. Of course there is no scientific evidence
supporting any of these claims and one of the two men featured in the infomercials is a convicted felon named Kevin Trudeau
actions are ongoing and The Mayo Clinic
has just sent out a letter to patients warning that the broad range of benefits claimed by those marketing some Coral Calcium products are simply too good to be true and that if the calcium indeed comes form the Okinawa area as claimed, it could be contaminated with lead.

is the amazing labor of love built solely by Ed Leedskalnin
, a man who claimed to have discovered the "secrets of the pyramids". Did he? We may never know, but this frail, tubercular, 100-pound man managed to quarry, transport, shape, and erect chunks of coral weighing up to 28 tons
by himself, using only the simplest of tools. The castle also includes a nine-ton gate
that is so perfectly balanced it can be opened by a child, and the world's largest valentine
, which weighs in at an incredible 5,000 pounds.
