Dr. Frank Arguello is an advocate for an "atavistic" theory of cancer. What does that mean? Well:Atavistic metamorphosis proposes that cancer cells are cells that have reverted, evolutionarily, to their ancestral, independent status as unicellular organisms. It is from there that cancer only occurs in plants and animals/humans (multicellular organisms). This also explains why cancer does not occur nor can be induced experimentally in unicellular organisms such as bacteria, fungi and protozoa.
I was going to quote more but it had big science words and I got tired.
Anyway, Dr. Arguello will not stand for someone disagreeing with him about science. In a rather bizarre exchange of emails, Dr. Arguello eventually resorted to threats and legal analysis that are at least as innovative as his cancer theories.
His last email begins like this:For historical reasons, I have been replying in detail and respectfully to your defamatory statements in your original piece posted in your website. I really find it difficult to discuss the science and treatment of cancer with you, because I believe you do not understand the biology of cancer, but also you have the mentality of those inside the box. You never think outside the box, and cannot conceive concepts that are outside the box, and therefore alien to you.
Note: whenever a client asks me to "think outside the box" for a solution to his or her problem, I get a stabbing pain behind my right eye, because it's a null-content phrase. Innovation is one thing; stubborn denial of reality is another.
Winning line after a long quote of this Arguello's clausian explanation of "defamation":
Maybe prehistoric single-celled organisms had defamation laws like this, but we don't. It's gibberish.
