Reasons to be Cautious
A list of questionable salesmen and studies
Australian Physician Disciplined for Misrepresenting Mannatech Products to Patients On September 8, 2000, the registration of Dr. Ian Geoffrey Raddatz was cancelled for two years for "unsatisfactory conduct." The decision was based on complaints that he had made unsubstantiated claims to patients that Mannatech products were effective against cancer, infertility, and hemochromatosis (iron-overload disease), and other health preoblems. The Tribunal's report is reproduced here in full. Dr. Radditz continues to promote and sell Mannatech products. - http://www.mlmwatch.org/04C/Mannatech/raddatz.html
Mannatech Inc. is promoting its nutritional supplements with a study it says was partially funded by a U.S. government agency and conducted under the auspices of a California medical school. Yet the National Institutes of Health, the federal agency the study cites, denies it sponsored the research. And school officials said they've been unable to find evidence the study, published in February, was ever performed. http://www.caic.org.au/commercial/Mannatech/manna-uses%20study.htm
