Medical Fraud Verdict
Robert Young, the father of the Alkaline Diet, and New York Times bestseller, and self-proclaimed doctor, promised to cure cancer with a strict alkaline diet and IV alkaline treatments. He lured his victims into rejecting surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, and paying thousands of dollars each day to stay at his "medical" ranch in San Diego. He sold a lie. His treatments did not work. His victims were not cured. They suffered until they died.
