This blog was created by a group of skeptic activists from Latvia, who are concerned about a highly dubious and unproven anti-cancer treatment called Rigvir, which originated in Latvia, but now has become an international problem, attracting and affecting cancer patients from around the world. Thus far, we have mostly been active in Latvia, but we believe people outside of Latvia also need to be informed. We feel it is our duty to warn cancer patients and their families, public institutions, healthcare specialists and media abroad about the scandal that has been developing in Latvia around this supposed anti-cancer treatment.
Links to media articles written about Rigvir are available here.
