A Los Angeles doctor has been arrested for providing false hope to cancer patients. You can read about it here.
The late Dr. David Servan-Schreiber had a list of negative attributes to look for when considering alternative cancer treatments. From his book (p.103):
“There are a few simple rules to avoiding traps and charlatans. Avoid practitioners who:
- Refuse to work in collaboration with an oncoogist and recommend stopping conventional treatments
- Suggest a treatment whose effectiveness has not been proven but that has proven risks
- Suggest a treatment whose price is out of proportion to expected benefits
- Promise that their approach is guaranteed to work, as long as you have a true desire to heal.”
