It's really funny. Stephen Barret from Quackwatch is on an all out quest to find the quacks when all he really needed was a mirror :). How incredibly ironic!
Many people that could not be cured by modern medicine came to Dr. Shelton as a last resort. Some of these people were already told by their doctors they were not going to live and they were able to be healed through fasting. For others who were already given a death sentence by their MD's, their illnesses were too far advanced even for fasting to help them. Naturally such cases were blamed on Fasting and on Dr. Shelton. Are you so willing to ignore the countless people who die every day seeking help from the pharmaceutical model of modern medicine while focusing on the few who died in a last ditch effort with fasting after modern medicine couldn't help them?
"If person wants to fast with no supplements, green tea ,drink minimal water that is great their choice but really unless person is taking in calories than to me its still a water fast.Or is this the Dr Shelton forum?"
No actually this has become the "weight loss forum" or the "zero calorie diet with artificial sweeteners and over the counter medications" forum, certainly not the "water fasting only" forum that we see in the title... and the immense expertise of the foremost master of fasting the world has ever known has been foolishly cast aside.
