YouTuber dies of cancer after claiming veganism cured it

Mari Lopez (left and right, and center left), who ran the food channel at home in Houston, Texas with her niece Liz Johnson (center right), told thousands of viewers she had rejected traditional treatment for breast cancer in favor of a 90-day juice cleanse when she was diagnosed in 2015. Within four months of cutting out animal products, she claimed to be in remission - and insisted the new regime (and God) had 'healed' her of her 'gay lifestyle'. But Liz has now revealed that her aunt passed away in December 2017, after the disease spread to her blood, liver and lungs, and belated attempts to try chemotherapy and radiotherapy failed. Speaking to Babe, Liz blamed her own mother for triggering Mari's relapse by feeding her meat and microwaved food. There is no scientific evidence to support Liz's claims.

Sackler family made billions off of the opioid crisis

More than 200 US states, cities and counties have sued Purdue Pharma - a company that was run for decades by a single family who created the addictive drug OxyContin - as the opioid crisis ravages the country. The Sackler family, run by three Brooklyn-born sons of Jewish immigrants - Arthur (top left), Raymond (bottom left) and Mortimer (main, with his third wife, Theresa, and daughter, Marissa), founded what would become Purdue in 1952, and made a mint producing pharmaceutical advertisements - some of which were later learned to be misleading. When the company, under the rule of another Sackler, developed OxyContin, it again misbranded the drug and promoted it as safe from addiction. In 2007, Purdue Frederick (a subset of Purdue Pharma) was forced to pay $600 million in fines for federal misbranding, but the damage was already done. America was spiraling into opioid addiction - which now has evolved into a crisis of historic proportions declared by President Trump to be a public health emergency.
