Well well well. Why am I not surprised.

CANCER ACT 1939

4 Prohibition of certain advertisements.

(1)No person shall take any part in the publication of any advertisement—

(a)containing an offer to treat any person for cancer, or to prescribe any remedy therefor, or to give any advice in connection with the treatment thereof; or

(b). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . F1

(2)If any person contravenes any of the provisions of the foregoing subsection, he shall be liable on summary conviction, in the case of a first conviction, to a fine not exceeding [F2fifty pounds][F2level 3 on the standard scale], and, in the case of a subsequent conviction, to a fine not exceeding [F2one hundred pounds][F2level 3 on the standard scale] or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months, or to both such a fine and such imprisonment.


And people still think statute is law... unbelievable.

Yes. The Act has been posted before on the forum.

When you fish around the subject, most writers say the purpose of the Act is to prevent 'quackery'. But that doesn't work on two fronts. The Act doesn't say that or claim that AND have you heard of (for example) The Meningitis Act ? No ? or The Influenza Act ? Hmmm.

I suppose 'quackery' in most other medical examples is OK.

Funny how cancer is so prevalent in developed countries and was unheard of until radio broadcast towers were common.

And all the poor fools out there are going to allow "smart" meters to be installed in or on their homes.

I enjoy the idea that a Cow can cure its own cancer, given a free run around a nice natural meadow.
Humans the "most intelligent" animal, can fight for 40 years with virtually unlimited resources and come up with......nothing....or worse.

Pot is almost legal across the USA. The BBC are still touting their deadly bullshit disinfo. They have to go. The "Queen" I suppose has too much Canadian forest under "valid claim" (ha ha ha ha ha ha ah smell that bull) to let the truth out.

I know this before..
The Cancer Act 1939 is an Act of Parliament of the United Kingdom passed in 1939 to make further provision for the treatment of cancer, to authorise the Minister of Health to lend money to the National Radium Trust, to prohibit certain advertisements relating to cancer, and for purposes connected with the matters aforesaid. The Act does not apply in Northern Ireland.
