Alkaline theory of cancer

I see someone has posted more ill-informed hogwash about the alkaline theory of cancer on the Macmillan What Now board.

This article, written by a Professor of Medicine entitled "Acid/Alkaline Theory of Disease Is Nonsense" covers the area in simple terms. The clue's in the title.

The poster also dips more than a toe into the supposed FDA suppression of simple cancer cures paranoid conspiracy theory.

Ah, it's good to be able to call a spade a spade! If I'd posted this on WN, the admins would have allowed people with no rational arguments to call me names at will, or deleted it, as it contains what they term "emotive language". But this IS hogwash, and indeed nonsense, as Professor Mirkin points out.

Tullio Simoncini didn't have his license to practice medicine withdrawn, and get convicted by an Italian judge for wrongful death and swindling at the request of the FDA. It happened because he killed someone with this quackery.

Why are posters on WN expected to allow people to promote such theories to vulnerable cancer patients with lies? Why do they have to be respectful, polite and scrupulously fair at all times with people who are promoting what amounts to an expensive suicide with misinformation?
