"Black salve" as a cancer cure.

Post by bindeweede » Wed May 23, 2018 7:29 pm

A recent article from Dr Steven Novella with almost predictable content.
Helen Lawson was a nurse, so you would think that she had enough medical expertise to at least recognize rank quackery, but not when it came to her own health. At 50 she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, a serious and often terminal disease. She was scheduled for surgery to be followed by standard treatment, but at the last minute canceled the operation.

She had apparently fallen under the guile of a local cancer quack, Dennis Wayne Jensen, who claimed that he had successfully treated many cancers with something called black salve, including his own brain tumor, twice.

Those pictures of the 'side effects' of the salve treatment should be widely publicised - might help dissuade some.
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con
