Let me guess – the phrase “WTF?!” has crossed your mind recently. Very recently. Like, since you read the title of this post.
I thought the same thing when I first read that unlikely combination of words, which arrived in my inbox as an email subject heading. I’ve had some unusual emails since I listed myself as the contact person for our department’s website, including a request to add a link to some tuna recipes to one of our research project pages, but this was definitely the most bizarre missive to date.
The body of the email consisted of a URL, and nothing else. As promised by the title, the link led me into the world of the “ferromagnetic theory of cancer”, aka Iron Conception:
Cancer and ALS/MND are intracellular nano-crystalline ferromagnetic infections. AIDS (infection) cannot endure antiiron slow blood loss.
The Holy Writ and schoolbooks contain this theory. The Holy Writ recommends antiiron healthy diet (raw goat’s milk and meat without blood) and suppression of infections by means of antiiron sulfur (sulphur).
(Oh, and also
The God creates nice women
but I’m not sure what that has to do with iron. But you should check out this photo, from the same site. It’s most illuminating. Oh, and it’s safe for work. It’s not that kind of website).
Why was this link sent to an academic cancer research department?
His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI can open the Holy Writ and read the ferromagnetic theory of cancer; can help numerous cancer researchers to beat cancer and scientific error by means of the Biblical antiiron anticancer antimoney methods.
Her Majesty The Queen, Patron of Cancer Research UK can send English schoolbooks ‘Physics’ to Paterson Institute for Cancer Research and Harold Varmus, M.D., co-recipient of a Nobel Prize for studies of the genetic basis of cancer. Great cancer researcher (who cannot understand school ferromagnetic theory-2006 of cancer) was nominated by President Obama as Director of the National Cancer Institute.
Together we will beat cancer, ALS, AIDS and great money by means of the Biblical accurate non-complicated antiiron methods.
Facepalm AND head-desk! That’s what we’ve been doing wrong all these years! Not involving the Pope and the Queen! D’oh!
There’s lots of other insight in the comments (not), and in the site’s other posts. This page in particular sheds some light on how the ferromagnetic “theory” may have arisen.
This was an unusually quote-heavy post for me. Oh well, one more can’t hurt:
To wear the mantle of Galileo, it is not enough to be persecuted: you must also be right – Robert Park.
