Quote:
A charlatan (also called swindler or mountebank) is a person practicing quackery or some similar confidence trick in order to obtain money, fame or other advantages via some form of pretense or deception.



Quote:
The word can also be traced to Spanish; charlatán, an indiscreetly talkative person, a chatterbox.


Quote:
Rather, the person called a charlatan is being accused of resorting to quackery, pseudoscience, or some knowingly employed bogus means of impressing people in order to swindle his victims by selling them worthless nostrums and similar goods or services that will not deliver on the promises made for them.

This concept has been hijacked by the medical mafia, you can trace this history back from the Royal College of Physicians, to distort, discredit, witch hunt and conceal credible alternative practitioners, cures and preventative medicine. And for why? Money, power etc.
