Dodgy doc uses blood oxygenation therapy

UK A retired GP whose use of an alternative therapy put a cancer patient at risk of blood poisoning could be struck off, the Leicester Mercury reports. Authorities discovered that Dr Philip Jack was treating the patient with controversial blood oxygenation therapy for several months. Dr Jack administered major ozone autohemotherapy 84 times to the 69-year-old man suffering from a rare form of non-Hodgkin's. The doctor was later forced to confess that the treatment, in which blood is taken out of the patient, mixed with ozone and re-injected into the vein, was of no proven benefit in treating the disease and put the patient at risk of septicaemia.
