Another lovely note from Steve Kroschel
October 31, 2017
Once in a while I hear from Steve Kroschel, the anti-pharma conspiracy theorist behind such zany films as The Gerson Miracle, Dying to Have Known, The Beautiful Truth, The Grounded, and Heal for Free, which all promote some variation of the profoundly dangerous position that diet alone can treat all disease, and should be preferred over emergency medical care. About 5 years ago he paid Skeptoid Media $1500 to have me do a brief appearance via Skype in The Grounded to advise that no, simply being barefoot will not heal you of all disease via mystical Mother Earth frequencies.
Every so often, previous donors from whom we haven't heard in a while can opt to receive a reminder of what we're currently up to, and see if we can win back their support. Kroschel received one today. Hilarity ensued.
Here's what he received from Skeptoid:
Dear Steve,Kroschel replied directly to me:
Mr. Dunning,I responded:
How wonderful to hear from you. As articulate and thoughtful as ever.Kroschel took it up a notch:
Mr. Dunning,As I've never done an episode on either Gerson therapy or grounding, I'm not sure why he's attributing to me so much success at having cautioned victims away from it. But I was more concerned with his lightweight threat, and hoped to draw him out into strengthening it -- because such things are always fun to forward to a nut's local constabulary:
What do you mean "dealt with"?Alas, all I was able to provoke was a nonsense sentence. Kroschel's reply didn't even make sense to a couple other people I showed it to:
OMG. You are so anal. You need to be "addressed" in an email with specific parlance that conveys that you are a lunatic .I decided that's enough fun for today, as that reply was so disjointed it derailed the conversation. Mr. Kroschel, if you read this, I will leave you with one piece of advice: Spaces don't go before punctuation.
