Nature Cure Quack Gets Shot
http://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/w...s-46052651

Summary: A "naturopath" (more like psychopath) named Juan Gonzales told a woman with cancer to use herbs instead of chemotherapy. She died. In response, the woman's husband shot Gonzales.

I've never really been convinced that naturopathy was a good substitute for medicine, and it does seem like the naturopath should have noticed that what he was doing wasn't making things any better. But still, shooting him was probably the worst response this guy could have made.

Yeah, it's like punching Richard Spencer.

This will only bring on the waterworks.

He can't cause any more deaths if he's dead.

Some people just need a high-five.
In the face.
With a chair.

No, but there are proper channels to keep him from causing any more deaths without killing him. Besides, killing him has opened the possibility that he will be seen as a martyr who made one mistake, rather than someone who should really not be pretending to practice medicine.

RE: Nature Cure Quack Gets Shot
This is a really murky area, and a longstanding problem. There have long been people who see the $$$$$ to be made from desperate families and individuals. When you're selling not much more than tea and meditation for thousands of dollars, and pretty much every patient dies, it's difficult to plead good intentions.

RE: Nature Cure Quack Gets Shot
I have a friend who has been battling cancer for about 7 years. Some of the treatments he does are illegal in Australia and he has to travel to Europe. Sometimes the laws that are (rightly) there to protect vulnerable people from dodgy operators actually don't stop the dodgy operators at all, but do stop people from using treatments that are actually working but haven't gone through all the necessary clinical trials.

Let's see natural medicine cure a gunshot wound!

Helga: So I'm not Kate Moss. Big deal.
Milo: Kate Moss isn't stuck in a sewer.
Helga: Gee I don't know. When you think about it is there no sewer BIGGER than the world of professional modelling?

Haven't you heard? Herbal medicine can cure absolutely anything!

Why? It wasn't invented by crackers! That's why!
