Weekend Australian Magazine, Walkley Award journalist, Richard Guilliatt – exposes the dangers for cancer patients following non medically trained bloggers & deluded cancer entrepreneurs in the “Cancer Cure” and Wellness Industry.
Richard finds that the business of Wellness via social media, has captured unwary Australians into believing and experimenting with false cancer cures.
In 2012 Richard Guilliatt took an interest in the story of the late Jess Ainscough Wellness Warrior –and her mother the late Sharyn Ainscough who both decided to forgo conventional medical treatment in favour of the Gerson diet and meditation/lifestyle change to treat their cancers.
Sadly, both are now deceased.
Both were thoroughly convinced that they would be cured by their radical lifestyle and dietary changes. Since their deaths, much of their history has been removed from the internet.
The Weekend Australian Magazine, 22 September 2012; published an article about the Aincoughs titled Holding out for a Miracle. The same article discussed the cancer cure promises of Dr Abdul-Haqq Sartori.
Richard also reviewed the cases of cancer patients TV Astrology personality, the late Athena Starwoman and Gemma Bond. Bond’s daughter, journalist Laura Bond is now cancer blogger. She is the creator of the misleading cancer info blog: “Mum’s not Having Chemo”.
But it was a young woman by the name of Belle Gibson who captured the interest of Richard Guilliatt. That interest was eventually responsible for lifting the lid on the business of wellness and cancer cures. Richard authored the article Wellness Inc in the Australian Weekend Magazine 4 April 2015 as a continuation of his investigation into cancer fraud.
