Kevin Mark Trudeau is an American author, radio personality, infomercial salesman, entrepreneur, pool player, and convicted fraudster who has promoted various health, diet and financial remedies that many critics consider unsubstantiated. Several of his books, including Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About, allege that both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the pharmaceutical industry value profit over treatments or cures. He is currently imprisoned since 2014 at Federal Prison Camp Montgomery following allegations of contempt of court and is scheduled for release on July 18, 2022.
