So, one can patent snake-oil treatments now?
"Neurocutaneous syndrome" as Amin uses the term is not recognized as a real condition by any medical or scientific authority. He is the only person on earth who believes the symptoms of Delusional Infestations [well recognized as a symptom of various organic conditions as well as of certain drug abuses] are caused by dental compounds, a hypothesis refuted by all dental, toxicological, dermatological, psychiatric, and other authorities. He continues to promote this non-existent condition in non-peer-reviewed journals that publish anything for a price, and does his clients a huge disservice by treating their real and curable conditions with his mangosteen-based placebos. It is a shame he is allowed to profit from the misery of his patients in this way, and that the US patent office can be complicit in his crimes by giving him a patent for a fake treatment for a fake disease.
