The Daily Beast’s Gerald Posner, who describes himself as a “longtime” user of alternative medicine, details why you shouldn’t get your medical advice from Suzanne Somers:
Her book promotes a regimen that many doctors believe causes cancer rather than cures it. This regimen might have contributed to her own bout with cancer. Several doctors and experts she uses as the basis for her book have medically checkered backgrounds. Cancer is a recurring thread and marketing tool for her wide-ranging business interests. One outside expert, based on his examination of 30 years of photographs, believes she had plastic surgery, which would undercut her reputation for health through alternative medicine.
Hmm, maybe folks who put their kids and other peoples’ kids at risk by refusing to get vaccines based on inaccurate and dangerous advice from Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey ought to look for more credible sources of medical advice, too.
