Ralph Moss Claims
Ralph Moss appears to use SEO using negative content related to various integrative protocols. He then sales the traffic various programs. His claims consist of the following:
Claim 1: “Cancer tutor is promoting BX as a cure. Cancer tutor is recommending that people cash in their life insurance policies to purchase BX.”
Response: We are in agreeance with Mr. Moss that this information is not beneficial.Delta Institute has issued a request to have cancer tutor remove any information related to BX from their site. They have responded to our request. Mr. Moss attempted to claim that Delta Institute is posting this information. That is a false representation.
Claim 2: “BX Protocol is a fraud because they do not disclose the location of their lab.”
Response: An investigation regarding attacks against BX Protocol and it associates will help Mr. Moss understand why we do not disclose the location of some of our facilities. Several of our facilities are open to the public, including our 110-acre Health Restoration Resort in the Caribbean.
Claim 3: “Dr. Smith is adamantly opposed to the peer review process”
Response: This is blatantly false. Peer review is at the heart of the scientific method. However, there is a common misconception that if a treatment option has not had studies published in a peer review journal, then it is invalid and should not be considered an appropriate method of treatment. It is important to understand that this is not always true. In recent years, the peer review process has been called into question on multiple occasions. In an article published in the Wall Street Journal (Campbell, 2014), problems with the peer review process were highlighted, including:
- Approved peer review papers being retracted due to an author exploiting the process by giving glowing reviews of his own research using phony names.
- There has been an increase in approved peer review papers being retracted due to the authors misrepresenting information which has led to the inability to reproduce study results.
- A 2011 report in the monthly journal Nature Reviews Drug Discovery showed that the results of two-thirds of 67 key studies analyzed by Bayer researchers from 2008-2010 COULD NOT be reproduced.
- Researchers are often poorly trained in experimental design and many publications do not report basic elements of experimental design.
- Some scientists withhold or vaguely describe key pieces of their research to retain a competitive edge, resulting in the inability to duplicate results.
- Some journals allow panel members to agree in advance to giving a paper a favorable review to help it get published.
Additional flaws in the peer review process have continued to surface. While there are many peer reviewed scientific claims that are easy to replicate, there are a high number of papers being retracted for not meeting publication criteria. It is not uncommon for the peer review system to reject scientifically valid research while accepting bogus research that cannot be replicated. Journals and researchers often gain notoriety and financial gains despite publishing invalid research that did not truly meet the peer review criteria. While peer review journals can be useful when conducting research, they are not the only way to validate whether or not a treatment protocol is effective.
A 90-day study at Utah State University conducted by Patti Champine, M.Sc. provides results on the effect of BX Energy Catalyst on non-small cell carcinoma cell lines. The 150-page report is available upon request. Additional information and results can be obtained by clicking on the picture below:
It is also important to understand that practical methods for measuring mitochondrial function have been developed. Some of these methods include open-respirometry, crenation studies, and mitochondrial function profiles. Results of clinical studies can be found on the website in Module #2 BX Research (In vivo).
Results of an animal survival study and Respiration study results can also be found on our website.
Claim 4: The BX Protocol authors urge patients to eat a so-called “Delta Diet,” which from their description is composed almost entirely of grains and vegetables.
Response: We do not advocate the use of one specific diet, nor is the diet he references related to cancer specifically. Diets are tailored to individual needs. We tailor dietary needs to the client. These could include:
- Many more
It is unfortunate that Mr. moss misrepresents the facts. It is our opinion that his motivations are related to search engine optimization through exploiting key words related to his competitors.
