Friday the paper published a ad for "Science Unveils New Aloe Cure for Stomach and Digestion Problems". It looks and sounds very similar to previous ads that the paper has published for vertigo, and other scams. It has a picture of a Dr. Santiago Rodriquez PhD a "world famous research chemist" and has other sciency words and phrases in it. The so called cocktail delivers instant relief for heartburn, acid reflux, constipation, gas bloating, diarrhea, and other stomach nightmares according to their ad. This miracle cure is called Aloecure. The interesting thing about this ad it has names we have heard before like Francisco DeWeever and Liza Leal who all praise this as a break through. One is called a certified Nutritional Microscopist, is a bogus title as there is no such thing in real scientific medicine. It has anecdotes from satisfied customers. Remember the plural of anecdotes is not evidence. They also make the same pitch of try it now 100% risk free with an order of 6 free bottles plus two free ones with every order. But hurry this is special. Yup it is special kind of baloney. No data, no place to go look at independent verifiable evidence. The sad thing is that many years ago I had a patient who had rectal cancer and refused surgery and treatment because someone sold him a magic cure using Aloe and he used it. He died, but he probably had the silkiest bowels of a corpse ever. Think about it.
