This was just issued on the Universal Medicine website:
“In response to the outrageously false allegations printed today in the Northern Star, Universal Medicine would like to issue the following statement to the media and to the public.
There has been a heinous disregard for the truth in the portrayal of Serge Benhayon, Curtis Benhayon and Michael Benhayon and a total misrepresentation of their character and their services, in today’s paper. The article, which erroneously states that Serge Benhayon trained his sons in Esoteric Breast Massage comes out only a day after an ABC Radio interview in which Serge Benhayon explicitly stated that Esoteric Breast Massage was a treatment only ever practiced by female practitioners and which has never been practiced by any man, himself or otherwise.
To state it categorically – at no stage has Esoteric Breast Massage been promoted or advertised as a substitute of any medical treatment or for the treatment of cancer.
Serge was contacted for comment yesterday and was unable to get back to the Northern Star reporter before the story was published. At no point did the reporter indicate the highly inflammatory and erroneous content of his story and at no point did he indicate the story would run with or without comment from the Benhayon’s. It is a discredit to the Northern Star that they have not supported a local business in the face of scurrilous lies and instead have become a party to them.
The reporter, who has failed to abide by the Journalist’s Code of Ethics made very little effort to find out the truth, choosing instead to print mistruths and outrageous lies. His actions, which were highly defamatory, have been carried out without any regard to the people they will affect. Universal Medicine is demanding an immediate apology, a retraction and a correction be issued by the Northern Star.
Those who know the Benhayon’s know that the integrity with which they treat their female clients is second to none.”
Edit: We have just been informed that the Northern Star has deleted reference to Curtis and Michael practicing Esoteric Breast Massage. The fact remains that the damage has already been done and the article continues to print misinformation online and in print in reference to claims that Esoteric Breast Massage cures cancer.
Please leave your comments of support for Michael and Curtis and Serge. Keep commenting and keep posting to your friends. Let’s let the truth trump the lies, it’s up to us to get the real story told.
