Man faces court over cancer cure claims

A QUEENSLAND man who claimed he could cure cancer with diet and exercise has faced the Federal Court in Brisbane following allegations by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) that he had breached the Trade Practices Act. 

The ACCC has alleged medical treatment claims by Mr Darryl Peter Jones, principal of the Darryl Jones Health Resolution Centre on the Sunshine Coast, were misleading.

A website used by Mr Jones to advertise a cancer treatment and prevention program involving an exercise regime, the consumption of vitamin B17 and restriction of glucose in the diet was forced to shut down last year.

Mr Jones had claimed his treatment was more effective than surgery, chemotherapy and pharmaceutical drugs.

Justice John Logan was due to hand down his findings as MO went to press.
