The BBC exposes a new age healing scam

1 Comment

Last night, the BBC Newsnight programme broadcasted a segment on Theta healing – a new age technique supposedly meant to cure cancer and AIDS.

While the scam itself is nothing new, the segment is worth watching. At one point, Vianna Stibal, the founder, makes the claim that amputees can grow their limbs back.

One thought on “The BBC exposes a new age healing scam

  1. This site: promoting skepticism. But I am not made a skeptic when I watch the video. I become a total believer that Vianna is a scam – or why would her husband attack the camera person when she is asked a simple question. So I’m not at all skeptical about her claims. I’m a true believer in their falseness.
