Recently, the Robert O.Young, the American "master" who advocated the acid-base constitution, was finally planted. In November 2nd, a court in San Diego, California, decided Robert O. Young to compensate a cancer patient for $105 million.

Who is this man? He is the founder of the famous theory of acid-base constitution. He believes that people's physique is acidic and alkaline, and the acidic constitution can lead to various diseases including cancer. If you want to be healthy, you must ensure your body's alkaline environment.

In 2002, he published a book entitled "acid-base miracle: balanced diet and recovery of health", introducing the theory of acid-base constitution, and then publishing a series of books that swept the globe.

However, many people have great interest in this statement, and even believe it. Some patients with incurable diseases seem to see hope and hope that his "miracle therapy" can cure cancer.

Robert O. Young earned a lot of money from this theory. But lies are lies after all. To tell lies, sooner or later, to be accused!

As early as 2 years ago, in a charge of illegal medical practice, he admitted in court that he was not a microbiologist, a hematologist, a medical expert, nor had any scientific training. No medical qualification, even diploma is also bought fake. He is really over confident.

Later, Robert O. Young let a cancer patient give up chemotherapy, using her own original alkaline therapy, which eventually led to the spread of cancer to the 4 stage. The therapy was to add alkaline baking soda to the intravenous drug.

He was fined 105 million dollars. The theory of "acid-base constitution" was also overthrown. In fact, more than ten years since the birth of this theory, many scientists and doctors at home and abroad have emphasized that it is a hoax. But there are endless rumors on the Internet...

For example, the acid-base food list, and advocating "acid born daughter, alkali born son". Sell some useless pills. In fact, the acid and alkaline constitution does not exist at all.
