‘Dr’ Robert O Young shamelessly continues to imply he can ‘reverse’ metastatic breast cancer

Dear Daily Mail, I don’t think cheese and meat are making our bodies dangerously acidic

UPDATE (17/07/11) I have not yet received a reply to the email below so I have just sent the following:

Are UK Blood Clinic implying cancer can be reversed by following their diet?

(EDIT: The UK Blood Clinic website and video have now been removed, presumably as a result of my complaints.)

I came across the UK Blood Clinic site recently and used FishBarrel to complain to the ASA and Consumer Direct. As often seems to be the case, I believe the company are making a number of misleading statements on their website. But there’s more to it than that… Continue reading
