Boy dies after false cancer cure3rd August 2006
The trial of a doctor blamed for the death of a nine year old boy with bone cancer has begun in Germany.
Alternative medicine practitioner Dr Matthias Rath convinced the boy’s parents to use a ‘miracle cure’ rich in vitamins and to reject conventional medical treatments.
He faces charges of falsely advertising the pills for their therapeutic effect, including their ability to cure cancer.
Both the doctor and the boy’s mother blame the death on conventional medicine and the drug industry, claiming he did not have cancer.
