Australian blogger who claimed natural remedies cured her cancer admits: 'None of it is true'

Post by Guest on Sat May 07, 2016 10:02 am

Belle Gibson, the disgraced Australian “wellness blogger” who faked terminal cancer and claimed she was cured using natural remedies, faces legal action and penalties of more than £500,000 for profiting from her elaborate global scam. The state of Victoria’s consumer watchdog launched action in Australia’s federal court against the 24-year-old over her claim that she overcame brain cancer without resorting to conventional medicine – a claim she used to promote The Whole Pantry, her internationally successful phone app and cookbook. Gibson, who built up a huge social media following, had promised to give some of her profits from her wellness empire to charity but it emerged that no charities had ever received any donations.

I have no problem with people trying an alternative treatment for cancer - it's their cancer and it's their decision.
But to make up a story, get other people's hopes up and then be found to be lying....?
She's a nasty piece for work.

Suspect

EVERY purveyor or spruiker of "alternative" therapies who promises a "cure" for cancer or any terminal illness, or that "homeopathic vaccines" will somehow work, are liars and frauds; only in it for the money...

AND should be prosecuted as such..

Not all alternative treatments claim to "cure" some claim to alleviate symptoms.

She makes a mockery of cancer-sufferers and their hopes.

She's a pure nasty bitch.

She is. But she is not through her life yet, she may live to regret her behaviour.

Idea

THE POINT of my statement hinges on the word promise in there, edds :

Alternative or natural therapists can offer up their treatments as a possible panacea against the signs, symptoms and effects of cancers;

Sufferers are free to try different treatments to possibly help them fight cancers, or to relieve pain and other symptoms..


HOWEVER, if an alternative therapist makes wild and unsubstantiated claims - or worse, when they claim they can replace conventional or prescribed treatments, and that their clients don't need any other help - then that therapist is crossing over into committing outright fraud...

While noting at the same time, that in this case it isn't a crooked therapist making any such claims anyway -- but a fraudster claiming that she had been cured of (non-existing) cancer through 'alternative therapies', for the sole purpose of making money...

Yes I agree with you. No false promises should ever be made, and that includes doctors too.

Holistic therapies have their place, I believe. Here in England, one of our biggest cancer hospitals runs a successful holistic unit and with great results for alleviating stress and anxiety, and helping people relax etc. It does some wonderful work and I wish that all NHS hospitals offered this.
