The student of medical University Autar Nikhil (Nikhil Autar) told me that almost died after taking advice from the Internet to use baking soda for treatment of leukemia. In an interview with The Australian, he noted that now going to blog about the dangers of alternative medicine.
Outer living in Moorebank, a suburb of Sydney Australia, I learned about being sick in 17 years. The doctors estimated his chances of survival is 1 to 10. However, the treatment Autera was effective, he achieved remission.
The student explained that before this, I tried to listen to the advice of bloggers who were fans of alternative medicine. Who wants to be healed Outer followed some of them. Him including the proposed “super vitamins” and soda for the treatment.
Currently, he advocates that bloggers in social networks, such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, obliged to be responsible for stories about the merits of their products or techniques. “You can’t sell TVs or fridges on the basis of false allegations, but for some reason is the norm to play with people’s lives”, he said.
According to Autar, in the age of social networks regularly you can see posts with tips about treatment or health improvement. The publication cited the example of the history blogers Belle Gibson (Belle Gibson), which was fined 410 thousand Australian dollars (over 18 million).
The girl was found guilty of spreading false treatment of brain cancer. She claimed that the technique helped her to heal, although in fact she had this disease.
