Is Dr. Hulda Clark a Quack or a hero?
Dr. Hulda Clark has written several intrigueing books since the early 1990's about curing many diseases including Cancer, AIDs, HIV, and others. While Dr. Clark has been deeply criticised by many professionsals, listed as a quack on many lists, and sued by the FDA and the FTC, she has been and is lauded by many thousands of followers who claim that she has curred their illnesses. So, where does the truth lie?
In her book, The Cure For All Diseases, Dr. Hulda Clark describes how certain parasites and toxins affect our health and how we can improve our health by removing certain toxins from our bodies and by killing our parasites using a parasite zapper. Since this book was first published, many thousands of individuals (possibly hundreds of thousands) have claimed that Hulda Clark zappers really do work. There may be over 1,000,000 (actually, way over a million) zappers in use around the world today. This is significant enough to warrant a fair consideration of the claims.
From the various sites around the internet that claim that Dr. Clark is a quack, there are a number of objections to her claims and a number of top rated professionals who claim that she is full of baloney. These sites offer information to debunk the theories of Dr. Clark.
While there are many sites pro and con, I have not found any that consider both sides of the Dr. Hulda Clark story. The objective of this site is to provide a fair and balanced evaluation to the claims of both detractors and supporters.
So, let us start with www.quackwatch.org which is operated by Dr. Stephen Barrett M.D., a retired psychiatrist. This is one of the worlds best known and most active quack sites.
On his site, Dr. Barrett has a number of interesting comments. He starts out with the heading "Bizarre Claims" and goes on to say that "Clark claims that all cancers and many other diseases are caused by "parasites, toxins, and pollutants"". Well, excluding radiaton and genetics, these are the only known causes of cancer, so in this respect, she is partially correct. He then follows up with "All cancers are alike. They are all caused by a parasite. A single parasite! It is the human intestinal fluke." To be sure, this is a little far fetched, or is it.
Checking with the National Cancer institute, we find that "Bile duct cancer may occur more frequently in patients with a history ... or infections with the fluke, Clonorchis sinensis." Also pertaining to bile duct cancer, "Other possible risk factors include ... infestation with liver flukes". Species of Faciolopsis have also been shown to be linked to certain cancers. However, Dr. Clark's statement that all cancers are caused by Faciolopsis buskii can not be true with all of the evidence of other causes present today. Does this mean that she is entirely wrong? Read on!
Dr. Barrett goes on to further explain Dr. Clark claims "All cancer patients (100%) have both isopropyl alcohol and the intestinal fluke in their livers. The solvent isopropyl alcohol is responsible for letting the fluke establish itself in the liver. In order to get cancer, you must have both the parasite and isopropyl alcohol in your body"
Dr. Barrett continues with the following:
All of the above notions are absurd. In a 1999 talk that attacked widespread misbeliefs about parasites, the president of the American Society of Parasitologists noted that if Clark's pseudoscientific claims were correct, "the medical establishment and . . . professional pathologists are guilty of a gigantic and cruel fraud on the public."

First, let us review the statements made by Dr. Clark.
As stated above, the statements by Dr. Clark are not entirely absurd as suggested by Dr. Barrett. While Fasciolopsis buski is found mainly in Asia and the Indian subcontinent, it is present and does show up in North America and may be more prevalent that medical authorities want to admit. About one-in-five liver cancers are cholangiocarcinomas, arising from branches of the bile ducts that are located within the liver. Certain liver parasites are recognized risk factors for this type of liver cancer, especially in parts of southeast Asia. A favorite complaint about the medical community is that these parasites are from southeast asia. What they seem to forget is that over a half million Americans went to southeast Asia during the 1960's and 1970's and that many came back suffering from health problems. They also seem to forget that hundreds of thousands of Americans have visited areas of southeast Asia since then. Many of our past customers had been to southeast Asia or had family members who had been there.
I have been using the zapper for about eleven years and I have been manufacturing and selling them for almost as long. As a result of selling zappers, I have spoken with many thousands of Hulda Clark followers over the last few years. I have never hear any of them complain of Dr. Clark and many are long time survivors of Cancer, HIV, and many other serious illnesses. It is my personal feeling that I would trust Dr. Clark's methods more than anything that the FDA has approved.
I would also like to state, that I have read many pages of QuackWatch and related sites and find that they are a serious effort to misinform the public.
