Robert O. Young — who has no post-high school degrees from accredited institutions — was sentenced to three years in prison. He had oversimplified the “extremely complex fields” of microbiology and hematology according to Superior Court Judge Richard Whitney, who oversaw Young’s case.
Commentary: This is one reason don’t “treat” people as a naturopath. Rather, I advise them on how to be healthy. I don’t have a clinic or a place for people to come and stay. I explain to people how to be healthy and they either listen or they don’t. Unfortunately, most don’t.
The 65-year-old Young presented himself as a PhD and wasn’t. He’s someone whom I agree with on some things like alkaline water, but certainly not what he says in this interview. He went to jail for practicing medicine without a license, overcharging dying people. The guy sounds like a predator. Personally, I never cared for guy, but he is correct on lot he says about alkalinity and acidity. But his “controversial theories” didn’t land in prison. He’s a predator and from the sound of things he’s exactly where he belongs.
“I think where it all went very wrong is you became overly aggressive and overly confident in areas you just had no knowledge about,” Whitney said. The judge said Young had “stolen time” from terminally ill people, including some who “were bilked out of tens of thousands of dollars. I am hopeful that this will not repeat itself,” Whitney said.

Commentary: I know one guy two paid $13,000 for ONE WEEK’s training on how to do live blood microscopy, and did not even get a diploma or certification of any kind.
Deputy District Attorney Gina Darvas called Young the “Wizard of pHraud”. That’s a good one.
He painted him as a charlatan who made money peddling pseudoscience to desperate, dying people. Darvas said Young’s degrees came from a nonaccredited “diploma mill” where Young went from a bachelor’s degree to a doctorate in about eight months in 1995. San Diego Union
See you in a few years Doc. Here’s my rebuttal to Robert Young – not a doctor and not a PhD – and his insane ideas about eating meat.
Young has had legal troubles in the past in Utah. In 1995, he was arrested on two felony charges of practicing medicine without a license. He pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor, which was dismissed 18 months later under a plea deal. He was charged again in 2001, but the case was dropped. San Diego Union
However, I am more likely to agree with Robert Young than Gabe Mirkin, M.D. and his ridiculous article Acid/Alkaline Theory of Disease Is Nonsense. For one thing, it was published on Quackwatch.org. I agree with next to NOTHING on Quackwatch.org, which ironically is full of quackery itself. I absolutely do not agree with Gabe Mirkin, M.D.’s article at all. Medical doctors know no more about human health and nutrition than anyone else who studies it. Quackwatch.org is full of quackery and nonsense.
