Alternative Cancer Treatments: The Deadly Dangers of Magical Thinking

the_lorelei6Magical thinking is the assumption that if I do this, then that will happen. It is an illogical thought pattern that involves linking unrelated actions or events.

Things like emotional stress and events of great personal significance can push us toward magical meaning-making.

Magical thinking is widespread and most of the time it’s harmless, such as the use of mascots in sports. But there is a tipping point, beyond which it can become quite sinister and even deadly.

Breast Cancer Patient Sylvia Dies After Being Treated by Tullio Simoncini with Sodium Bicarbonate

On October 8, 2007 a Dutch breast cancer patient died in the Netherlands after she was treated with sodium bicarbonate injections by Tullio Simoncini. The cascade of events is subject to investigation by the department of public prosecution/the police and the Netherlands Health Care Inspectorate.
In his home country, Tullio Simoncini was banned from his medical profession for life. Also, he was convicted for fraud and wrongful death in 2003. For several years he has been practising alternative medicine in Italy and the Netherlands. Sometimes he rents room in ‘the Clinic for Preventive Medicine Berg en Bosch in Bilthoven’, Utrecht region, Netherlands. In this clinic, several alternative healers provide scientifically unproven therapies for cancer.

Tullio Simoncini: sCAM murderer?

Anyone who thinks sodium bicarbonate is an alternative to conventional cancer therapy should read this email before taking any steps.

Subject: [healthfraud] interfere with Simonici?

Unbelievably, the father of a friend of mine (diagnosed one week ago
with a likely glioblastoma near his speech center) is actually
planning to go through with this. He’s not even had a biopsy. Since
Simonici is delicensed, he’s having my friend’s father travel to a
doctor outside Belgrade (yes, in Serbia) to have a catheter put into
this brain (at a cost of 20,000 euro cash), and then to Rome for
Simonici to “oversee” infusion of sodium bicarbonate directly into the
tumor (for 150 euro/day, cash).

My question: what avenues can my friend pursue, legally,
diplomatically, etc, to prevent this from happening? I’m aware that
his father is a competent adult, but surely there’s a way to prevent a
U.S. citizen from engaging in this transaction with a convicted
criminal in Italy?

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated, even if it’s just
confirmation that, unfortunately, nothing can be done to prevent this
particular idiocy.

Tullio Simoncini says Cancer is a Fungus and Sodium Bicarbonate will cure it

TullioSimonciniTullio Simoncini, an Italian ex-medical doctor, claims that cancer is caused by a fungus and can be cured with the administration of sodium bicarbonate. To explain the fungus, Simoncini also argues that cancer is due to “excess acidity” that allows the fungus free rein.

There is no scientific evidence whatsoever to support these claims and there is good reason to believe that Tullio Simoncini’s treatment is dangerous.
