Skeptic News: Errol Denton Cyber Bully

As previously reported Errol Denton, here on Facebook as Black Microscopist, has taken to the internet in an attempt to deflect reasonable criticism of his business and advertising practices by denouncing his critics as racists. No doubt in the hope that this will have a chilling effect and his critics will simply vanish.

He has even gone to the lengths of starting a petition regarding the bloggers and we would encourage people to complain to the petition site under either legal issues or cyber-bullying. For effectively that is what Errol is doing attempting to bully his critics into silence with ridiculous and baseless claims of racism.

Errol has chosen to smear his critics rather than address the very real issues they have raised. Which is presumably why his company  Fitalifestyle (t/a See My Cells and Live Blood Test) still appears on the Advertising Standards Authorites list of non-compliant online advertisers. The ASA lists all advertisers who have made claims that do not comply with the UK Advertising Code despite repeated requests for changes from our Compliance teams.

The ASA expects adverts to be legal, decent, honest and truthful Dentons companies place on that list indicates that his advertising is not.

The criticism of Errol has centred around his use of live blood analysis. Live blood analysis is an “unestablished diagnostic test”: its methods are not generally accepted in laboratory practice and its validity as a laboratory test is highly doubtful. There is no scientific evidence for the validity of live blood analysis, and it has been described as a pseudoscientific, bogus and fraudulent medical test.

Live blood testing has also been described as a fraudulent means of convincing a patient that they are ill and require treatment with dietary supplements.

By promoting these treatments Errol Denton has been rightly criticised by skeptical bloggers and his claims that the abuse is racially founded are entirely without merit.

  1. Should you read this I will make it very plain:

    Errol Denton I detest you, not for the colour of your skin, but for your actions in both promoting and living off the proceeds of quackery and lying to defame your critics.

    You are a quack and a liar sir.

    Here are some (hopefully) useful links relating to the petition.

    The Care2 TOS is here:

    http://www.care2.com/help/general/tos.html

    You will notice that it includes the agreement not to “make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.”

    I would argue that, on the face of it, the allegations of racism against Jo and Josephine are at least abusive, harassing and defamatory.

    You can report issues on the site using their help/support form here:

    http://www.care2.com/help/support

    On the form, there are two drop-down fields. “Your Main Concern” includes the category “Petition Site” and then the “Your Specific Issue” drop-down will include “Remove Petition from Site”.

    Errol Denton appears to be channelling Ali G: “Is it because I is black?”
