Noel Edmonds has suggested that a man’s cancer was caused by his negative attitude.
Noel Edmonds has been trending on twitter for a few hours now.
No, he’s not dead. He’s still just a complete moron.
He’s in the limelight after tweeting about a cancer patient, suggesting that negative thoughts and mind processes could encourage those nasty cancer blobs to grow.
The Deal or No Deal presenter posted a photo of an EMP pad. The device apparently can slow down the ageing process, reduce pain, eliminate depression and “cure” cancer.
When cancer sufferer Vaun Earl responded to the picture, calling it “Quackery”, here’s what Noel said (prepare to put your head in your hands and cringe big time):
So yeah, Noel Edmonds just tried to blame a man’s cancer on his apparent negative attitude.
This is scary for a variety of reasons. Mis-comprehension of diseases and how to effectively treat them cause people to assume that having a bag of herbs in your hat and shoving mint leaves in your shoes will get rid of terminal illnesses.
We don’t want any more people in the world who think it’s OK to not vaccinate their children, to fob off modern medicine or assume slight electro-pulses are going to cure their loved one of cancer.
Also, we definitely don’t want those affected by cancer to worry they aren’t being ‘positive’ enough.
Professor Jane Maher, Chief Medical Officer of Macmillan Cancer Support, spoke to The Independent.
“Cancer and its treatment can be a very scary experience, making some people feel helpless and too tired to be positive…But that does not mean they can’t also survive their disease.”
“Some patients tell us that having a positive attitude helps them when coping but we also know that a positive attitude means different things to different people and there should be no pressure on anyone to feel or act in a certain way.“
Oh Noel, oops you’ve done it again.
