Ben Carson caught on video claiming Mannatech supplement magically cured his prostate cancer

In what might be the strangest story yet about the seemingly strangest candidate in the 2016 race, YouTube footage has surfaced from 2004 in which Ben Carson tells a group of sales associates for a dietary supplement called Mannatech that after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he began taking the supplement and “within about three weeks my symptoms went away.” It must not have worked that well, as Carson later had surgery to remove the cancer.

It should be pointed out that Carson is a retired medical doctor and brain surgeon, and would seemingly be the last Presidential candidate to be willing to participate in such a junk-medicine pyramid scheme. However the video in question plays up his doctor credentials as a way of giving credence to the supplement in question. Watch the video of Ben Carson claiming that tree bark cured his cancer here:

11. Sugar pill magic

 

He does state he is not associated with Mannatech and has no expertise in the area. But I think most people would miss this and think the reputable doctor is full heartily recommending the sugar pills to treat cancer.

12. This kind of cancer "treatment" cost Steve Jobs his life!

If Jobs hadn't initially put his faith in unproven herbal remedies to treat his cancer, he could have gotten proper treatment much earlier and probably survived.
