“The Quack Who Cured Cancer” – How The AMA & FDA Shut Down 17 ‘Hoxsey Clinics’ Which Were Effectively Treating Cancer Using Herbal Treatments
The story of the Hoxsey tonic and clinics and the battle Harry Hoxsey had with the AMA (American Medical Association). Despite winning more court cases than he lost, including the final, most important case, the medical authorities shut down all 17 of his clinics anyway.
Hoxsey never hurt anyone and reportedly has effectively treated thousands of people who had cancer. The time period of this story is the 1920’s through the 1950’s. Contemporaneously, Rene Caisse ran cancer clinics and teated thousands of people in Canada of cancer with her Essiac tea herbal treatment (1920’s to 1970’s).
