"I know of one patient who turned to Gerson Therapy, having been told that she was suffering from terminal cancer and would not survive another course of chemotherapy. Happily, seven years later she is still alive and well. So it is vital that, rather than dismissing such experiences, we should further investigate the beneficial nature of these treatments." – HRH PRINCE OF WALES
"The prince wants more research into the Gerson Therapy, which is a remedy that relies purely on food and vitamins to fight the disease … Charles, who was speaking at a health conference, revealed he knew of a terminally-ill woman who had benefited from the treatment.' – THE EXPRESS
"A royal cure for cancer?
[Prince] Charles gave an enthusiastic endorsement last week to the Gerson Therapy, which eschews chemotherapy in favour of 13 fruit juices a day, coffee enemas and weekly injections of vitamins … Max Gerson incurred the wrath of the American medical profession for presenting five patients alive and well to a US congressional committee, years after they had been sent home to die." – THE OBSERVER
