Food blogger fraud

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/belle-gibson-the-health-food-blogger-admits-she-lied-about-having-terminal-brain-cancer-10194764.html

This woman claimed to cure her brain cancer by eating quinoa and kale, or something.

The problem with this is that people have read this blog, bought the cookbook and generally bought into the pseudoscience once again.

Telling people who have serious illnesses that they can heal themselves by eating vegetables and doing yoga is quite simply bullshit, and is also highly dangerous.

Does a healthy diet and exercise help with general health and well-being? Absolutely. Is it a replacement for modern medicine? Definitely not. Of course it is the choice of the person who is affected, how they react and what they do/do not do to fight these illnesses. I just think they should have the chance to do this without so much misinformation lying around. Especially when they are already in such a vulnerable state.

These people should be fined and banned from the internet. They need to be held responsible for their actions.
