Vitamins Don't Cure HIV / AIDS

Bad Science (Paperback) (New Edition) (Import)Steal this chapter from Ben Goldacre's Bad Science and visit his excellent blog while you are there.
For fifteen months leading up to publication, the vitamin-pill entrepreneur Matthias Rath was suing Ben Goldacre for libel. In September 2008 Rath dropped his case, which had cost in excess of £500,000 to defend. This chapter did not appear in the original edition of Bad Science and is now available online and in the new paperbook edition.

Matthias Rath claimed a vitamin diet could replace cancer and hiv treatments and cure sufferers from them. The claims were obviously unfounded, pure marketing evil from an unscrupulous snake-oil merchant.
