I'll be the first to admit that current medical experts do not know EveryThing! Not about cancer! Not about a lot of ailments. But they do know Something! And they know an awful lot more than I know.
So I go to the doctor. And I have an Oncologist. And I get my scans/bloodtests/exams.
And so far, my Onc is keeping me stable.
I visit an online forum for cancer patients. Members ask questions, provide answers, share information, and encourage one another. I've learned a lot from that website.
However, today my blood boiled. Someone shared a link to a fellow that I adamantly believe is a Quack (with a capital "Q"). This guy (Kelley Eidem) self-diagnosed stage IV cancer from splotches on his skin, without ever seeing a doctor, and claims to have "cured" his (supposedly) stage-IV cancer with two weeks (or less) of eating garlic and jabanero peppers and oil or something like that. Of course, since he is altruistic and wants YOU to be cured of your cancer, he wants you to BUY his BOOK!
Well, do tell! He sells a book! I wonder how many people he has convinced to forego medical treatment in lieu of garlic/peppers/oil. Get in line, Mr. Quack, with all those other Quacks who sell false hope and call it a cure.
I'm mad enough to be spitting nails.
P.S. The photo is NOT an advertisement by this particular Mr. Quack. But it may as well be...in my humble but not stupid opinion.
