Find ethical guide: The glitzy sucker ads that fascinate your dad offer a sense of intellectual superiority and empowerment. He'll continue to waste money on pills that are often not what they are supposed to be. The best remedy is to get him under the care of an ethical local specialist in holistic medicine, preferably a physician or working under one's supervision. This would turn a problem into a major plus.
