It is very, very unfortunate that these groups routinely misquote scientific studies.
Our study has been misquoted and misinterpreted—I believe on purpose—by several of these groups. However, I have not wanted to expend a lot of effort trying to correct this, unless asked directly, as it only adds visibility to their claims.

However, your group and others are certainly more than welcome to go on the offensive and I would be more than happy to provide you with a quote or statement. (source)

The person who wrote the advertisements is without doubt the most ignorant person now alive on the planet; also without doubt he is an idiot, an idiot of the 33rd degree, and scion of an ancestral procession of idiots stretching back to the Missing Link

    Does anybody here have a BRAIN??

    I am Alan Hunter. I show in my book CURING CHRONIC ILLNESS that drugs do NOT cure chronic illness, but diet CAN.

    Of course, this doesn’t sit well with this website WWDDTYDTY !!

    I ask you to check out the information in my book!

    It will show how you are being manipulated by the trolls behind getting WDDTY telling the truth about medicine/diet!

    Alan Hunter (It took me 40 years to find the answer to my illness, but I found it. And it was DIET!)

      Yes, Alan, we have brains. Evidence of higher cognitive function is harder to find at your end, though.

      You wrote a book? That’s nice for you. Come back when your ideas have been published in reliable peer-reviewed journals, assessed by the relevant specialist scientific community and achieved consensus. Because, you know, that’s how science works.

      Anybody can publish any old tripe in book, after all. Andrew Wakefield wrote a book claiming that MMR causes autism and his experiments on children were ethical, but it’s still bollocks.

      As we have pointed out before, quacks always say that medicine can’t cure chronic illness, ignoring the fact that the definition of chronic illness is an illness medicine cannot yet cure. Syphilis used to be a chronic illness, now it’s not, because medicine can cure it. And yes, in some cases, diet can modify the course of disease, but not in the way that you claim, according to the available evidence. Your problem is not with this website but with the real world: you want us to “fix” the fact that the scientific community has not accepted your conjectures, but that is not a problem we can or should fix, it’s your problem that you have to fix through the normal method used in science.

      We don’t think you will do this, because we have seen your claims and they make no sense, but you never know. Go forth and publish, properly, in the peer-reviewed literature, and then come back. Until that time I don’t think we will be approving any more of your crazy late-night comments, thanks all the same.
