eBay and other slammed over fake cancer zapper sales

internet hoax

eBay, Argos and Sainsburys have been slammed over online sales of so-called cancer zapper machines that are deemed to be fake.

The idea that a cancer zapper can cure the life-threatening disease came from a Canadian author who died of cancer. The author reportedly claimed that cancer was caused by parasites, and the use of a zapper could kill the parasites and cure the disease.

Needless to say, this method of treatment has been widely discredited. However, desperate patients have been lured into buying the devices online.

eBay removes fake cancer zapper devices

eBay has removed fake cancer zapper devices people have been selling via their website. eBay themselves have been slammed for allowing these products to be sold unchecked. The result is duping desperate cancer sufferers into shelling out hundreds of pounds for treatment that simply doesn’t work.

There have reportedly been dozens of different types on sale, with some priced as high as almost £300.00. These devices are zapping electricity into patients and are often combined with so-called ‘cleansing pills’ that are also designed to kill the ‘parasites’ that are at the centre of this discredited theory.

One seller in an investigation had been selling the cancer zappers for more than a year – completely unchecked by eBay.

Desperate patients endangered by fake cancer zapper devices

Desperate patients are at risk of harm through the use of these fake cancer zapper devices, experts warn.

Not only can the devices be harmful themselves – especially as they’ll be unregulated – but use of such devices can dissuade patients from getting proper help and proper treatment from the NHS. That being said, the fact that desperate patients are turning online for help doesn’t reflect well on the NHS. We know cancer funding is a problem right now, with the risk of increased medical negligence incidents occurring.

Sainsburys and Argos have also been pulled into the issue as well. They have faced claims that they have lent to the false legitimacy of the devices by allowing them to be collected from their stores.
