    Earnest Nigerian-based haemologist Marcus Asuquo said in his affidavit that there were other ways to treat sickle-cell anaemia. These include administration of oxygen, fluid management, electrolyte balance and use of folate.

    Children deserve first line treatment, not alternative second line treatment.

    It makes me sick when the WT/org uses babies and children to promote their alternative brand of medicine.

    Agreed. Adults should have complete freedom to choose their treatment method even if that method isn't the best choice. They should also be able to choose to refuse treatment. Kids on the other hand should be given the best available treatment with statically the highest chance of success.

    I don't mind them getting their kids alternative medical treatment if it's just as effective or close to it, but yes, if it's a much lower chance doctor should make them go with a blood tranfusion. We're past the point of talking about invisible figures in the sky when it comes right down to a life or death situation.
