    I lost my husband to cancer and it dismays me to see false hope in regards to cancer cures.  I wrote a Hub entitled the 4 Myths about Ozone and not curing cancer.  The purpose was not to give false hope, not to mislead, the purpose was to dispel the myths and provide clarity to those searching and longing.  Today I received this comment on that Hub:

    "I find it interesting that a person with 20 years experience in the Food and Beverage Industry, with majors in Food Science and Bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin posts the fallacies in this page gets edited out. Guess I will send my factual data to the BBB and have them investigate. My friend Robert David, Director in the FDA would find this page interesting also."

    I simply want clarity of information. My goal is not to deceive but to dispel the myths and false claims. 

    Any suggestions on how I can clarify this or any other article?  I feel strongly for families fighting cancer - that was the purpose to state the facts that this is NOT a cure.

    PS
    My background is in finance and water utilities not "food and beverage".  My degrees are in business and finance.  Did I mislead on this statement too?

    Hey Goldie,

    I wouldn't worry about it. Believe it or not, there are many things over the many of decades, the FDA has been wrong about.

    The fact that this person is making a statement of such importance, without actually providing their "factual" stuff, is only to scare you. It's done a lot, to make people live in fear.

    The FDA is one of the most corrupt agencies in the U.S. wink

    You invented the EZ Swimmer? SOOOO cool!!! I was trying to find the hub you mention but got distracted  (you have alot!) Anyway, based on what I did read, I am sure you did not misrepresent anything, and you cant help it if some people read things the way they want them to be, not how they are meant. Comments can be nasty sometimes, and is up to how you feel if you want to leave it or delete it, but I do hope you wont loose any sleep over it. (Now that I am back here and have reread your statement, Im going back to read your hub.)

      Cags is right, don't worry about it.  Some people get it and some don't.  Like the old saying goes, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink."

      Keep on writing the good things you write about.  You are helping those who want to be helped.  Blessings.

    I read the hub and the only thing I would do is add some sort of disclaimer and cite your references for fact gathering. I know when we were doing the health hub contest this subject came up when facts or claims are being given and articles giving diagnoses for illnesses, etc.

    I agree a disclaimer never hurts.

    You guys are wonderful! 

    Thank you so very much! 

    I was losing sleep over it. 

    I wrote the Hub to help not confuse and that guy was lost completely - I thought it might be me.
