Noel Edmonds is a cancer survivor, and passionately believes he cured himself of the disease.
But the star was today slammed by a fellow TV host and cancer-survivor Victoria Derbyshire, for suggesting negative energy causes the disease.
Victoria, 49, asked 69-year-old Noel if he regretted tweeting a cancer survivor to ask if they thought their negative attitude caused the disease.
He said: “I regret the fact he didn’t answer the question.
“It is a scientific fact that negative energy causes disease and negative thoughts are part of that process. It changes the outcome and millions of doctors and scientists will tell you that.”
Victoria – who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 – quizzed the Deal or No Deal host.
She said: “Don’t you think that is a horrible thing that you said to a cancer survivor?”
He said: “No because I asked him a question – a perfectly reasonable question.” He went on to explain he stopped going on Twitter because he didn’t believe there could be a balanced debate on the social media site.
Victoria asked: “Do you think all cancers can be caused by negative attitudes?”
Noel quickly snapped at Victoria – “No!”. She pushed him further asking which ones he did believe were caused by negativity.
He said: “I don’t know I’m not a doctor.”
Refusing to back down, Edmonds replied: “Sorry the point your making is? I don’t understand the link you’re making. I wasn’t doing a diagnosis. I was asking a question.
“We need to explore a lot more about the energy of the human body.”
ITV star Noel Edmunds claimed he destroyed his own tumour with sound waves in 2016.
Speaking on ITV’s This Morning back in June 2016, Noel said: “My tumour was destroyed by sound waves.”
The TV host was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2013. In June 2016, however, he appeared on This Morning to refute claims negative thinking causes cancer.
He told Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: ““I’ve never said negative thinking causes cancer, your promo is wrong and I want to be positive.
“Pulsed electromagnetism can help with tackling cancer – tackling.”
It was in 2016 that Noel first addressed ‘tackling’ the disease with sound waves.
The TV host posted a picture of an EMP pad – a mat filled with electromagnetic coils that’s attached to a tablet device – along with the caption: “A simple box that slows ageing, reduces pain, lifts depression and stress and tackles cancer. Yep tackles cancer!”
Noel followed up with another tweet, stating: “Just looked at the latest stats showing very soon 50 per cent of us will get cancer. @EMP_Pad is one way of reducing your risk #selfhealth.”
A Twitter user with cancer contacted the presenter on the site and asked: “I think Noel Edmonds should stick to what he’s good at. Presenting quiz shows and beard trimming, rather than curing cancer.”
