Hi everyone - the other day I caught an episode of Ripley's Believe It or Not and a guy was highlighted who supposedly had lymphoma but who after changing to a diet of spoiled meat regained health. He has some followers and I thought it was mentioned that he started a website or has a book on how to do what he does. I thought his name was something to the effect of "Aginas" (his first name) but I cannot find anything on him nor his eating methods online. Has anyone ever heard of this before? Does anyone know of this concept? The Ripley's site is less than helpful and I figured perhaps one of you health-forum folks might have heard of this.

Years ago I heard of someone eating spoiled meat, but that is all I remember about it.

Interesting concept, but certatinly not something I would recommend.

I think there is more to this story, and Ripley's is certainly not a good source for heath and well being advice.

Default Ripley's Believe It Or Not

Ripley's did host some far fetched stories, so I'm with Eddiek in thinking that there's probably more to the story. I remember watching one of their stories (during the mid or late 80's) that showed a guy moving giant rocks with "energy" from his hands. I don't know if their quality has improved in recent years, but they had a circus-like entertainment start.

Food poisoning can be very dangerous, and at the very least, very miserable. I don't recommend actually experimenting with this one.

I saw this ripley report today,Sept 6, 2008, on dish tv. I, too, did not get the name, but, just will add that about a year ago in that show where female spouses trade places for 2 weeks, one episode had a woman go live on a farm where the family daily ate rotten meat and the stunned replacement wife for her week had the family eat in typical restaurants. The children became very ill. She took them to a doctor and the whole spoild meat eating family were in excellent health except for the stomach illness they got from our traditional (modern) restaurants. If you get the name of that Ripley report (I thought it was Ogenes... but couldn't find it.) post or email your info. Tim

What about E-Coli and Worms/Parasites etc... Maybe their Cancer got better as the rotting meat might have fired up the immune system to attack these things but for me no thanks!

Eat a clean diet and take Probiotics for a strong Intestinal System.

I would never eat any meat, let alone rotten meat.
