More Big Claims
on November 28, 1999
In one of Hulda Clark's previous books, "The Cure For All Cancers" she states on a very prominent page at the beginning:
"Does this mean you can cancel your date for surgery, radiation or chemotherapy? Yes! After curing your cancer with this recipe it cannot come back."
I believe that book also stated it did not matter at what stage one's cancer was, she had the cure. So now we have still another book with "The Cure For All Advanced Cancers".
I was impressed at the beginning of this new book with Hulda Clark's style. She comes across as very caring, creative and knowledgeable. I'm not a medical expert, so a lot of what she writes seems impressive to me. Some of it has me wondering if maybe this person has something and the public needs to listen. But yet another part of me knows we have been down this road many times before. Intelligent minds that are talented with words and charismatic -- and yet we find out later how wrong they are.
Hulda Clark claims to have "the cure for all advanced cancers", an extremely bold claim. Such a huge claim should at least be backed up with good evidence, but I cannot find it. The technical jargon is formidable, so I studied the 50 or so cases she presents at the back of the book.
These cases use fictitious names. Maybe that is fair, to protect the people from being bothered. But it also makes it hard to check with these people on the details that are in the book. And in this book with "the cure for all advanced cancers", we find out sadly that many of these people are definitely not cured. Hulda Clark appears to have no system in place for following up on these people, or compiling meaningful data on the alleged effectiveness of her methods. As many of these patients leave her care she hopes they do well, but worries they may not. Maybe they are not willing or able to have their teeth worked on, change certain details of their lifestyle, or move to an environment that is free of some particular substance. Clark usually has some excuse when patients fail. We need more than a bunch of cases where it is unclear if even one single person was saved at all by Hulda Clark.
Conventional medicine keeps records, does studies, and opens this information up for review so it can be verified and analyzed. Conventional medicine does not claim to cure all cancers, and in fact admits it can help little in so many cases, and that it does make mistakes. Practitioners of conventional medicine, very intelligent people, also die and lose loved ones to cancer. Over the years it seems none of them have followed Clark's methods and been cured. As much as even physicians dying of cancer would like a cure, they know that Hulda Clark has not shown she has one.
