VPA is currently selling olive oil and black currant cordial, blessed by the pastor, for £14 (retail price: less than £6). Television ads made by VPA are claiming that people who have bought these ‘cures’ from them have been healed of HIV, cancer and infertility. In interviews, the pastor has claimed to have cured people of diabetes and brain tumors. The people running VPA have provided no evidence to support their claims. Their testimonials are not accompanied by any evidence that the people claiming to be cured actually have been cured, they have no studies,not even an explanation on there website of how their fake cure is supposed to work.
And for the record, there is no evidence that either olive oil or blackcurrants (in a cordial or otherwise) have any effect on HIV what so ever.
If you believe in the power of prayer, go to your local parish and ask for a blessing. Don’t waste money and give up helpful medical treatment because of false claims that marked up grocery products will save your life.
