With reference to my previous (re)blog of the girl who died from cancer after following a quack cure I have come across this story here
It is about time that these quacks are removed from society. For good!
A controversial herbal “healer” and naturopath is under fire after the death of a teen girl he was treating for leukemia using a strict vegan diet and herbal supplements.
The Canadian Broadcasting Company reported on the death of the teen girl, who was from one of Ontario, Canada’s aboriginal First Nation tribes. Another teen girl from the same community is still in the care of Brian Clement, who Florida officials have ordered to stop practicing medicine and calling himself a doctor.
Clement operates the Hippocrates Institute, a spa-cum-clinic in Orlando, Florida where patients with serious diseases have been treated with what the state of Florida is calling “unproven and possibly dangerous therapies.”
Clement urges his patients to forego conventional medicine like chemotherapy in favor of veganism, supplements, juices and a raw diet.
Makayla Sault was 11 years old last July when she left chemotherapy in Hamilton, Ontario, to attend the Hippocrates Institute, which is licensed in Florida as a massage parlor. The girl died in January. The Ontario coroner’s office is investigating.
In the meantime, however, Clement has been ordered to cease and desist in calling himself a doctor — he is licensed only as a nutritionist, not a medical doctor — and to stop providing medical care to patients. The state issued their orders, along with a $3,738 fine, to Clement on Feb. 10. He was given 30 days to respond. He is facing possible felony charges of practicing medicine without a license.

‘We were smart enough to eradicate measles, but arrogant enough to invite it back. Welcome to a four-part series on the precise ways we’re fucking up 50 years of medical progress. ‘ By Leigh Cowart
The great Persian physician Abū Bakr Muḥammad ibn Zakariyyāʾ al-Rāzī carefully documented this little strand of RNA tucked in a protein envelope and which has enjoyed a rare kind of notoriety, even in the shock-and-awe world of infectious diseases.
In 1529, the Spanish introduced it to Cuba, killing two out of three natives. Over the next decade or so, the virus ravaged Central America, decimating many populations and killing up to half of all Hondurans. And in 1693 in colonial America, Virginia governor Edmund Andros issued a proclamation for a “day of Humiliation and Prayer” in the hope of waylaying the virus.
It is one of the leading causes of death among young children, despite our ability to safely vaccinate against it. It is estimated that between the years of 2000 and 2013, vaccination has prevented 15.6 million deaths.
But please read for yourself.

And if you are an anti vaccine being, hang you head in shame. THERE IS NO AND I STRESS ABSOLUTELY NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF THAT VACCINATION CAUSE AUTISM AND IF YOU ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO CHOOSE TO BELIEVE IT REMEMBER ONE PERSON WITH MEASLES CAN INFECT UP TO 18 UNVACIINATED PEOPLE AND SOME OF THEM MAY BE BABIES WHO WILL DIE.

books, The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven
‘I did not go to heaven': Paralyzed boy admits he made up best-selling book about how he ascended to paradise and met Jesus after car wreck.
Alex co-wrote the book with his father, pictured. He is now divorced from his mother and lives separately from his son
His story was made into the best-selling book The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, which was co-authored with his father Kevin and first published in 2010.
The mother adds that Alex previously told a pastor that the book was made up, but was told the publication was ‘blessing’ people and to stay quiet.

Some of the comments in the Dailymail are really very funny!
Was there not a similar case of a surgeon that also wrote a book about going to heaven but it was debunked by the doctors who attended to him?
So by the way near death experiences do have a neurological explanation about what happens when the brain is starved from oxygen. I am just saying. https://justfletcher.wordpress.com/2013/07/03/proof-of-heaven/

***************WHO OWNS THE FISH???????????*******
There are 5 houses in a row in 5 different colors. In each house lives a person from a different country. Each person drinks a certain drink, plays a certain sport and keeps a pet. No 2 people drink the same drink, play the same sport or keep the same pet.
The Brit lives in a red house
The Swede keeps dogs
The Dane drinks tea
The green house is on the left of the white house
The green house owner drinks coffee
The person who plays soccer rears birds
The owner of the yellow house plays tennis
The man living in the house in the centre drinks milk
The Norwegian lives in the first house
The man who jogs lives next to the man who keeps cats
The man who keeps horses lives next to the one who plays tennis
The man who golfs drinks beer
The German plays handball
The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
The man who jogs has a neighbor who drinks water
Question: WHO OWNS THE FISH?

Tim’s Retirement Plan!
There is a new diet on the market at least once a week I guess and still the numbers of obese people are increasing. I am sure the want for magic has been with humans forever. But if there was this magic pill everybody would be slim. Look at Oprah, all the money in the world but…..
Saw this article http://m.news24.com/health24/Columnists/Too-much-too-soon-Tim-Noakes-20150109,
So many specialists (Noakes is a sport specialist please do not confuse!) have warned people, but I should have listened will come too late. Pretoria University has spoken out so many times, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. He has followers I am telling you, more than some prophets.
Banting is quite similar to the Dr Atkins diet, and do you know what he died from? And how much he weighed in the end?
Spoke to a gastroenterologist who said she has had to take several patients off this diet because of serious complications.
Of course Noakes will tell you this diet is not for everyone – he has to cover his arse.
Please read the article. And this one too http://www.health24.com/Diet-and-nutrition/News/Tim-Noakes-backtracks-on-dairy-20141020
We are so addicted to processed food, the easy way out. And if you don’t like animals and you don’t care how they are slaughtered sure eat meat 7 days a week and don’t cut the fatty bits off.
In the mean time Tim must be laughing all the way to the bank.
