Bactrim (Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim)

Other names: Cotrimoxazole
A fad is a style or custom that many people are interested in for a short time. Just as dress fashions come and go, so food fads come and go. Nutritional quackery pertains to false claims made for the health virtues or curative properties of foods.
People often adopt a dietary regimen, or subscribe to claims for specific foods or supplements because someone has told them about the particular virtues, or because they have read about these claims in articles or advertisements. When they have had little or no education in nutrition, they are unable to evaluate whether the claims are justified. Thus, they often fall prey to faddism or quackery. Some dietary fads are harmless. Others create an economic hardship for people of limited income because the foods or supplements may be expensive. Still others are nutritionally inadequate and could lead to serious nutritional deficiencies. Sometimes the harm from a fad comes about because a person substitutes self-therapy for the advice of a physician. By such action he might delay effective treatment until it is too late.
