Don Tolman at Hilton on the Park in Melbourne

My beautiful and intelligent partner for the eternities has brought me along to a Don Tolman lecture (for lack of a better discriminator), starting with a short movie introducing the "Indiana Jones of Health Food" from Texas no less.

Where Truth and Health Lies.
The three revolutions of Self Care.
The Pharmaceutical Industry is a 3 to 4 Trillion Dollar industry.
Criticises the modern education system actually discourages the natural inquiry innate in our little ones from a very early stage. Something I do agree with him.

The rest, well, shall we say, where's the science mate?

One thing he keeps reminding his audience is that 98% of all biopsy results are false. This is a very high figure and combined with his tube theory of our bodies sounds out there with the faeries. Where is the evidence? Usually a number of self reported successes in treating the disease. With no controls or reports of failure of the treatment. The treatment of course is Pulse, a Biblical based diet regime Don Tolman found in some un-described ancient document held at some unspecified collection at an unspecified location of some un-referred wealthy American.

Long on rhetoric and short on evidence, with just anecdotes to convince the credulous, and to top it off, it was a sales routine for his camps, held at resorts and hotels like this one, on the Gold Coast in Queensland.

As a dietary regime the Pulse is probably the better of the ones I have seen. And I have to agree the self education and enquiry is a good thing, the Academy does not have monopoly on wisdom, indeed, far from it.

I have no objections to an investigation of his claims or spending good money on his Camps. However please don't spout his anti science rhetoric as it lacks evidence and honesty.
