A Traditional Chinese Medicine Cancer Cure

August 7, 2015 // 0 Comments

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a collection of a broad range of healing practices sharing common concepts that developed over thousands of years in what we know today as China. These practices evolved long before the development of science-based medicine. Although most people see TCM as complementary to orthodox medicine for those suffering relatively trivial problems, some market it toward those suffering from serious health conditions with the promise of helping with their symptoms or, [...]

Edited by Peter Earlier in the year, thanks to the wonderful people who have been supporting me thought patreon, I was able to take the train down to London to attend the annual March Against Monsanto (MAM) protest. The protest took place on Whitehall opposite 10 Downing street, and was attended by around 100-200 protesters, as well as a relatively large number of journalists.  The event itself was poorly organised, and had conflicting information on where the protest was to be held; as well [...]

A Traditional Chinese Medicine Cancer Cure

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a collection of a broad range of healing practices sharing common concepts that developed over thousands of years in what we know today as China. These practices evolved long before the development of science-based medicine and include such pseudo-medical procedures as Gua Sha, Cupping, and acupuncture to name a few. Many attempts have been made to prove the validity of such practices but because, for the most part, they are based on superstitions and the [...]

A Review of Larry Cook’s Book ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living’

August 18, 2014 // 3 Comments

If there was one word I could use to describe Larry Cook’s book after watching his videos on YouTube, it would be ‘dishonest’. I recently sat down to read the false-hope peddler Larry Cook’s book ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living’ and it was not what I expected. Yes, the book is full of the same new age, unscientific, potentially dangerous medical advice that we have all heard a million times, but it is also quite (for want of a better word) hippy-ish. For example, the [...]

Nine till Five Snake Oil Peddlers

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah In October last year, I wrote an article about a 78-year-old man named Allan Taylor who apparently cured his incurable cancer with a new diet. Back in 2011, Allan was told that he had colon cancer and had around 22cm of his colon removed. He also underwent chemotherapy, but was later told that he would no longer benefit from the treatment and that there was nothing more they could do for him. Faced with his own mortality, Allan decided to investigate [...]

I recently returned there after working in Pennsylvania, and went to visit one of my grandparents, as part of catching up with all of my family members. Between the constant cups of tea and stale old biscuits, I found myself reading the [...]
