Chris Beat Cancer is a popular[1] anti-chemotherapy website created by Chris Wark, who, (clue in the title), claims he cured his bowel cancer by adopting a "raw vegan diet"[2], (which does not involve eating uncooked vegans).

By his own admission Chris Wark had surgery to remove the cancer from his intestine.[3] According to Professor David Gorski MD PhD, (a surgical oncologist who was not involved in Chris's case), that surgery alone, (without chemotherapy), had a ~60% chance of curing Chris's stage-III bowel-cancer, and that probability would have increased to ~75% had Chris also received adjuvant chemotherapy[4], which Chris refused.

So Chris's survival is not necessarily due to his unusual diet, and/or him worshiping a particular God.[notes 1].

The Chris Beat Cancer website promotes a panoply of quackery, for which Chris is paid commission.[5] As an example of the measly income he receives from his website, Chris states he earns “8 cents” for posting a link to a product on Amazon.[6] However Chris's income from other links on his website is over 1000 times higher: a reader clicking on a link to Ty Bollinger's "TTAC", (The Truth About Cancer), products can earn Chris over $100.[7]

Chris promotes other pusher$ of cancer quackery, such as Cancer Tutor,[8] Cancer Control Society[9], Dr Veronique Desaulniers[10], and Ty Bollinger.[11]

Chris has compiled his accumulated wisdom into an own-brand "healing cancer coaching program", which only costs $297 $197.[12]
For some of those who follow Chris's advice and eschew chemotherapy, it will cost them more than money.

Chris Beat Cancer is a Limited Liability Company, registered in Nevada[13], despite Chris being in Tennessee.[14]
