You can read some of my coverage of this tragic story here.
Well, it turns out that Clement is back in Canada.
A woman with MS has come forward to the CBC with her story too - a cautionary tale:
In 2008, Marcia Mundell was diagnosed with a form of MS known as relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. In 2011, she heard Clement speak at a lecture in Florida.Perhaps the best way to take the wind from his sails here in Canada is to spread the word. The CBC is doing a good job at this. Connie Walker has been following this story from the beginning. So far, it looks like Clement has lost at least one talking gig because of the CBC's investigative journalism.
"I asked him if his plan could help me cure my MS, and he said, 'Absolutely.' "
"He just said if I went to the institution and stayed on the raw food diet and followed their plan, that his program could cure my MS."
Mundell spent over $10,000 at the Hippocrates Health Institute and stayed on the raw, vegan diet Clement recommended for a year, but in 2013, her neurologist said her MS had gotten worse.
Mundell said that while she believes healthy nutrition is beneficial, she would not recommend Hippocrates.
"I think he's giving false hope to people."
He was scheduled to speak to children and parents today at an elementary school in Qualicum Beach, B.C. However, after CBC News called to confirm the lecture, school officials said it was cancelled.The news report has some of his future talking gigs in British Columbia. I wonder if perhaps BC Humanists or some other groups could picket this guy?
