Editorial #162: Bioresonance Quackery
Autism Politico is pleased to read that yet another form of quack medicine has gotten slammed by reputable medical authorities. And this time, someone was even fined.
A general practitioner has been fined $5,000 and censured by the Singapore Medical Council (SMC) for professional misconduct.
Dr Kay Aih Boon Erwin, who practices at the KCS Medical Centre at Blk 515, Bedok North Avenue 2, was found to have failed to treat his patients according to generally accepted methods of treatment.
He used a device called a Bioresonance Machine to treat his patients’ smoking habits, allergies and behavioural issues as a result of autism.
Autism Politico has to admit that it would be an amazing machine if it actually worked. After all, if this machine can do what gluten-free therapies, hyperbaric oxygen therapies, ABA, and other autism treatments that are considered quack can’t, perhaps the machine could cure other things, like cancer, modern-man’s divorce from God, world hunger, etc.
But given that the machine cannot do any of these things, it’s best kept away from the public and stockpiled along with other cure-alls sold off the back of wagons.
