Here Chris "beat cancer" Wark has "inspired" Debbi not to believe her surgeon.
"Gave me the strength to turn down chemo!".
Whether this is a genuine or fake review for Chris's book, it's horrific either way.

Chris Beat Cancer is a popular[1] anti-chemotherapy[2] website created by Chris Wark, who claims he cured his bowel cancer by adopting a "raw vegan diet".[3]

The saga began in Chris's colon[edit]

By his own admission, Chris Wark had surgery to remove the cancer from his abdomen.[4] 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,[5] which Chris refused.

So Chris's survival is not necessarily due to his unusual diet, and/or him worshiping a particular God.[note 1]
Long-term large-population studies have been done to determine the impact of going veggie after a cancer diagnosis, e.g. WHEL.[6]

Chris recommend$ many forms of "alternative" medi¢ine[edit]

The Chris Beat Cancer website promotes a panoply of quackery, for which Chris is paid commission.[7] 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.[8] 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.[9]

Chris promotes other pusher$ of cancer quackery, such as Cancer Tutor,[10] Cancer Control Society,[11] Dr Veronique Desaulniers,[12] American Anti-Cancer Institute,[13] CancerCrackdown,[14] "Best Answer For Cancer",[15][16] CANCERactive,[17] "Yes To Life",[18] "HealingStrong™",[19] Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby,[20] Mike Adams,[21][22] and Ty Bollinger.[23]

Chris repeats the conspiracy theory that cures for cancer are being suppressed, e.g. amygdalin,[24] found in apricot kernels, ("suppressed", despite the fact apricots are readily available[25]).

Chris Beat Cancer publications: "Square One" video-series & eponymous book[edit]

"Cancer Mastermind"[26] Chris has compiled his accumulated wisdom into an own-brand "healing cancer coaching program" called "Square One", which only costs $297 $197.[27][28][29][30]
For some who follow Chris's advice and eschew chemotherapy, it will cost them more than money.

Initially Chris offered a 100% refund to dissatisfied "Square One" customers, valid for 1 year;[31] however, for some reason, he has reduced the refund period from 1 year to 6 months.[32]

In Chris's coaching program he recommends: essiac tea, "Dr. Hulda Clark’s parasite cleanse formula", colloidal silver, "black-seed expert, Dr. Roby Mitchell",[33] Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez's enzyme-therapy,[34] "The Navarro Urine Test",[35] Dr Richard Schulze's "herbal detoxification program",[36] Gerson therapy,[37] alkaline diet,[38] and SirWikipediaJason Winters anti-cancer tea. Chris also encourages his "Square One" members to try Poly-MVA and black salve.[39]

On 25th September 2018 Chris Wark released a book entitled "Chris Beat Cancer: A Comprehensive Plan for Healing Naturally".[40][41] Within ten days it had garnered over 200 five-star Amazon customer-reviews, but according to "" most of those reviews are bogus.[42][43] NB: fakespot's AIWikipedia would not recognize that reviews by delicensed doctors,[44] naturopathic doctors,[45] & "dear friends" of the author,[46] are unreliable.

In December 2018 PinterestWikipedia deleted the ChrisBeatCancer account.[47]

In June 2019 Chris Wark was featured in a Washington PostWikipedia article,[48] exposing cancer-quackery on Facebook & YouTube.

In July 2019, in the wake of an investigation by The Wall Street JournalWikipedia, [49] the ChrisBeatCancer YouTube channel was demonetized.

Chris Beat Cancer is a Limited Liability Company, registered in Nevada,[50] despite Chris being in Tennessee.[51]
(Incorporating a company "out-of-state" in NevadaWikipedia is an attempt at tax-avoidanceWikipedia and asset protectionWikipedia).
