Many books about disease promise cures. Sufferers often go from one book to another without getting better. Between 10 and 20 percent of Americans of all ages will suffer from some sort of arthritis. Despite hundreds of prescription and over-the-counter products that target "the aches and pains of arthritis," it is frequently misunderstood.
