Televangelist Who "Cures Cancer" Targeted By Health Groups

A satellite TV channel, Faith World TV, that features a televangelist who tells viewers that he can cure their life-threatening illnesses with prayer has come under fire from health groups who call the program Miracle Hour dangerous -- and life-threatening itself. Today's (Friday) London Independent, noting that the program is produced in London by the U.K. World Evangelical Trust, describes one episode in which a caller describes a relative's battle with cancer. We cursed the cancer, the caller is told. It's dead. ... Tell them not to worry about anything. In another episode, another televangelist tells a viewer, I cause diabetes to die in your body. I lose you and declare you set free from the power of diabetes. Thank you heavenly father for this miracle right now over your life in Jesus's name. In an interview with the Independent, Debbie Ariyo, head of Africans Unite Against Child Abuse (Afruca), said the broadcast gives someone who has potential cancer false hope. Miracle Hour is distributed by News Corp-controlled BSkyB. A spokesperson for the satellite broadcaster said that producers of any program with an appropriate licence from British regulators are free to seek distribution over the satellite platform.

When I think about cancer, I think about the people in the world who have done the most innovative things to treat it and succeeded at it, then I look at what they're up to nowadays. Follow the doctors who succeed. No need to play guessing games. My top following is the guy who built a cancer treatment and sold it for $6.5 BILLION (Erbitux, one of the top head and neck cancer treatments today). I think he's one of the people everyone should be following when it comes to the ultimate cure for cancer. This article was very informative for me in terms of figuring out where real scientists with hundreds of millions in personal wealth are putting their time, even when they don't need to work: http://www.trefis.com/stock/snti/articles/168060/could-dr-harlan-waksals-final-gift-to-the-world-be-the-cure-for-cancer/2013-02-11 Follow the money, right?
