The Quack Miranda warning

A fun term that I learned recently. Via Wikipedia: _“The quack Miranda warning is a term used by skeptics to describe the text which the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) requires that all labels and marketing materials for products sold as dietary supplements carry, in boldface type:”_

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

“The name is a reference to the Miranda warning used by law enforcement agencies. It is also used by websites selling a variety of alternative medicine products and unproven devices.”

And if you’re looking for further procrastination fodder, the origin of the Miranda warning itself is an interesting read.
