Dr Graham, you still haven't addressed MM's other valid comments? . Your main concern seems to be defending yourself.

The woman in question was under your care as a faster and she became ill and died on your watch, no one is saying you killed her! but it does bring into question your fasting protocols, medicial checks and fasting supervision, and if you were negligent or not?. It doesn't matter if her partner doesn't hold you to blame because the fast preciptated her death and how can you say and know for sure that they arn't connected? Fasting for 3 weeks puts an incredible strain on vital organs. Contrary to what you might believe the public has a right to know what really happened.

What was the woman fasting on? water or juice? was her blood pressure being tested?, electroltes balanced properly during the fast? what about magnesium levels? What is your protocol for coming off fasts? You seem to stress in your previous post that the woman was only on a "walk" but there is a big difference between a 'stroll', a 'walk' and a 'HIKE' so which one was it? If this death had happened on US soil it would be all over the news and fully investigated by now. But in a 'developing' country like Cost Rica it can be swept under the carpet.

We would like more answers.
