ALIVE New York

(NaturalNews) In the wake of the ALIVE New York event imploding under allegations of financial mismanagement (https://www.naturalnews.com/036248_ALIVE_New_...) and obvious fraud (https://www.naturalnews.com/036260_ALIVE_New_...), nearly all the speakers who had been invited to participate in the event have cancelled and will no longer attend. As evidence of tax-exempt misrepresentation and fraud, criminal histories and a deep web of deception have surfaced, virtually no one wants to be associated with the event or its co-founders Joshua Scurry and Anna Scurry.

One of the claims made by the co-founders was that all the extra money raised -- after they paid for their luxury living arrangements and expensive "after party," of course -- was to be donated to the American Anti-Cancer Institute (www.AmericanACI.org), an educational non-profit focused on teaching people how to prevent cancer and heal from cancer.

Unlike ALIVE New York, the AACI actually is a tax-exempt non-profit with a legitimate 501(c)3 designation by the IRS. They associate with some of the top people in the industry who understand cutting-edge cancer therapies, including Dr. Leonard Coldwell, Dr. Thomas Lodi, Dr. Nicholas Gonzales, and many others.

I spoke with Bob Wright, the founder of the AACI, about the ALIVE New York fiasco, and he explained that like all the other speakers and organizations, the AACI was simply invited to be part of something that was billed as being an industry awards event. The AACI had no financial involvement in the event, and like virtually all the other participants, the AACI was distraught to learn the truth about what has been uncovered over the last several days.

His full statement, which is about to be published on the AACI website, is below.

To help the natural health community come together in a healing event in the wake of this fiasco, NaturalNews has put together a FREE "Healing Summit" streaming event that begins this Friday, and broadcasts all weekend long with top speakers on health and healing, nutrition, cancer, spiritual healing and much more.

NaturalNews is footing the bill for the entire event, all speakers are graciously volunteering their time for it, and there are no ticket sales, no registrations needed, no commercials and no funny business.

We are expecting over 50,000 listeners to attend. Full details of this event are found at:

Statement from Bob Wright of the American Anti-Cancer Institute

We have watched with great sadness the sudden, catastrophic demise of Alive New York. We are dismayed that an event of this magnitude could fall so far so fast.

Be it known today -- that the American Anti-Cancer Institute has never had any involvement in the setup or planning of this event. We were asked to participate as speakers -- as were many others. And although we had no written contract, we were told that we would be the primary beneficiary of the list of charities to receive funds. To date, we have received nothing -- nor do we expect to.

It became increasingly apparent to us during the past several weeks that Alive New York income would probably not be sufficient for there to be much, if any, payout to the charity group. Still, we were excited to have the opportunity to show the world who we are and what we're doing and planning.

We are a certified, IRS-designated, 501(C)(3), not-for-profit charity. We help cancer patients every day -- for FREE. We know what causes cancer -- thus, we know what heals cancer. Ask the thousands upon thousands of people that we have counseled, those who have read our book or have been to one of our many seminars. We really do know what we are doing -- and people always come first.

In the mislabeled field of "alternative medicine," we're not in it for the money. If that was indeed the case, most of us would be gone. No, we do what we do because it is the right thing to do -- leading people to the truth and giving them hope. At the American Anti-Cancer Institute almost everyone is a volunteer. We have paid some small amounts to contract marketers but, mostly, we are all unpaid. Being the Director and Founder, I earn no salary and haven't for the four years of our existence.

Despite the failure of Alive New York and the disappearance of our hope therein, we will continue to be here -- moving forward to, hopefully, build our planned 100-acre healing campus in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It will be called a "World Center" for the simple reason that no individual or group can claim it -- it will belong to everyone. It will be a true "healing center."

Again, we are very saddened by what has happened. We have all lost something as a result. Look for a world-wide event, possibly in the L.A. area, next year -- done right. The American Anti-Cancer Institute along with its Advisory Board of well-known doctors and healers, including Dr. Coldwell, are in the initial planning stages for such an event. All, with similar missions, goals and objectives, will be invited to participate.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
