Where are the laws that protect us against people like Andreas Moritz?

A very scary perversion of this idea is the German New Medicine of de-licensed German physician Ryke Geerd Hamer. He claims that a sudden psychological conflict is the cause of all cancers, of which we can only be cured by solving the underlying conflict according to the principles of the “German New Medicine”.
