30,000 people line up for free herbal cancer ‘cure’

People will go to any lengths in desperation to find a cure for a life-threatening disease. When it comes to cancer, fear and mis-information are a dangerous combination and can lead to people taking risks with almost anything or anyone offering a remedy to their condition.

An estimated 30,000 cancer patients and their relatives showed up yesterday (Sunday) outside the house of the well-known inventor of a so-called herbal “cure” for cancer Saengchai Haelerttrakul, in Prachin Buri, north-east of Bangkok, in hope of getting free ‘capsules’.

The queue started at five minutes past midnight and caused a two-kilometre-long traffic jam in the area.

Saengchai, who is better known as “Mor Saeng” (Mor meaning “doctor” in Thai), has not received formal training as a physician but was given the honorific by supporters for giving away capsules of his herbal concoction on the first Saturday and Sunday of every month.

Those people who picked up the free capsules were required to register their information (including showing a medical certificate of their condition) and sign a police record at the Muang Prachin Buri Police Station.

Saengchai’s full-time job is as a manager at the Prachin Buri branch of the Provincial Electricity Authority.
