The other issue with false hope, especially if there is no or minimal science behind it, is people who skip science because this sounds better, then go with snake oil. A recent study came out that found that people, on average, who went with "alternative" and "natural" "cures" died sooner than those who went the science based route. I get sick and tired of most of the cancer lists repeatedly allowing people to post about snake oil as if it was a real treatment that has some valid scientific research behind it that it actually does what it is supposed to do. That raises false hope in people too. No testimonials are not science. No a study in mice doesn't mean it will work in humans. No a study with just a couple of dozen people is enough... And if the website trashes "big bad pharma" that is a warning sign, claims doctors and pharma are suppressing the cure for cancer so they can make money off of us, If the person is selling what they are touting those are warning signs too.
