No, there is no proof he is a fraud, and there is no proof he has a miracle cure. That is precisely why he battles back and forth with the FDA. He
has had some miraculous success, and he has had some failures, but he has consistently charged exorbitant fees to desperate people. Maybe he is a
fraud, or maybe not, it is a "buyer beware" situation.
I'm not calling him a fraud, although he may be, but he may also be a good doctor on the defensive because of an overzealous FDA. I don't know the
"truth" if there is such a thing, I only know people need to be especially cautious when they are vulnerable to predators. Desperate families are
extremely impressionable, and even when they are told the likelihood of success is very, very low, they still drop 100s of 1000s of dollars on
unproven treatments that usually don't work.
To put it as an easier example. People do win the lottery from time to time. Some people buy 1 ticket, some people buy 100s of tickets. I could
open up a business, and I could help people win the lottery. Of course, I would warn everyone that not everybody wins, but as long as a couple of
people win, I can show their testimonial to how good my lottery system is. I can tell people the more they spend with me, the better their chances of
winning, and I would be telling the truth. In fact, if someone puts up $40k up front, and spends $3k to $6k per month after that, I can be very
confident that some of those people are going to have success at playing the lottery, and several might hit it big! Am I a fraudster? I'm not
lying, I'm telling the risks and rewards up front, and some percentage of people will get exactly what I promise, some will get lesser amounts, and
some will just be throwing away their money, but they knew that in advance.
There are a large number of predators out there that prey on desperate people. No one is more desperate than when they are fighting for their life,
or the life of a loved one. Even a 1% chance of staying alive is a great source of hope, and people will throw all their money into chasing that 1%.
That money could be better spent on a bucket list, or on traditional treatments, or on estate planning, or whatever.
