I was brought up in a good home in rural Ireland. We didn’t have much (who did back then) , but we were taught respect and we knew we were loved. My Mum was a very loving lady who died way too young from Parkinson’s Disease (actually I know now she died as much from the drugs she was taking as the disease itself). I’m 53 now and she never reached that age.
It never even occurred to me that people could be crooked. Or spiteful. That was then. Now I find myself somehow involved in the Natural Health world.
A man you may or may not have heard of called Bill Henderson died recently. Mr Henderson was a cancer coach and an author. He did his level best to tell people how to cure and avoid cancer with natural treatments and protocols. And yes, he died after receiving a cancer diagnosis. Sad indeed. Did cancer actually kill him? Some say yes, some say no. But does that really matter? Does anyone with a natural cancer cure claim that they are immune from even the possibility?
But what happened just 11 days later was astounding to me. An online blogger, under the name Orac, wrote a piece called, “Another Quack dies…of cancer”. There’s a link to the piece below if you really want to read it. Turns out this “ORAC” is a pen name for David Gorski, a surgical oncologist. The piece is gloating and distasteful.
Shame on you Mr Gorski. Bill Henderson spent the latter part of his life trying to help people. Attack his ideas all you want. But let his body at least go cold before you attack his memory.
