    Default Juice cures cancer - really?

    ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1458460350.534422.jpg

    I saw this shared on facebook this afternoon.

    If you were facing a cancer battle, would you shun traditional cancer treatments and go for this approach?

    Is it just me, or are posts like this really irresponsible? Who's to say if this is even based on truth? This could be a stock image!

    This David 'Avocado' Wolfe guy seems to have a lot of followers. Some of the stuff I've seen from him is a bit tin foil hat-esque.

    Thoughts?

    If I used the words I want to use to describe such posts I'm sure bubhub would replace them with a bunch of asterisks....

    I would hope there would not be too many people (aside from those suspicious of big pharma) who would choose to follow a facebook meme rather than medical advice.

    I would say though, that given how many cancers are lifestyle related, following a diet like that, in conjunction with recommended medical treatment is not going to harm you.

    I think there is a place for alternative medicine (sometimes) in conjunction with 'traditional' medicine (and again with approval of dr).

    But I do not consider juices alternative medicine.

    And it is so dangerous to procide this 'advice' to those that are desperate.

    As a total coincidence this just popped up in myFB feed too as a friend had liked it. I read some of the comments and this one stuck out....

    I guess no one needs to go in for cancer treatment anymore. Who needs medicine if they've got a blender and pseudoscientific advice from David Wolfe?

    As an aside have you seen some of the stuff that David Wolfe has posted, he is preaching to the tin hat big pharma brigade.

    Yeah, I've seen his material, which is why I don't like the guy!

    He's a psycho who preys on vulnerable people with pseudoscientific woo that makes him $$$. A charlatan and someone with a disturbing number of followers.

    Absolutely not. My dad has just been diagnosed with cancer and I wish with all my life for him to beat this...his cure is not going to come in the form of juice. If only it was that easy😞
