For Mari Lopez, what she thought was the elixir behind her survival, actually proved to be fatal. This is a shocking case from United States’ Houston, where this famous YouTuber, who ran a food channel from her house, died of cancer. According to a report by The Daily Mail, Mari Lopez, a vegan youtube star, who claimed that her plant-based diet cured her cancer and lesbianism died from the disease. Lopez who ran the channel with her niece Liz Johnson had told her viewers that she refused to undergo the traditional treatment for breast cancer and instead went for a 90-day juice cleanse after she was diagnosed in 2015.
As per the report, Lopez had claimed that within four months of cutting out animal products she was in remission and insisted that the new regime (and God) had ‘healed’ her of her ‘gay lifestyle’. However, Liz now blames her own mother for triggering Mari’s relapse by feeding her meat and microwaved food. Liz says that her mom would buy Lopez burgers and meaty things, and that caused the worsening of her health. As her health worsened, Mari told Liz to take down the videos with titles like ‘stage 4 cancer healed by juicing’and even a juice recipe called ‘the cancer killer.’ Mari and Liz would make juices and call them çancer killer’on videos watched by thousands on YouTube. Liz, however, said that her aunt would have survived if she had stuck to the juice diet.
Liz said that Mari Lopez would have survived if she was consistent in her diet and spiritual life. She claimed that her aunt did not continue juicing/raw vegan diet when she got diagnosed again and chose to do radiation and chemotherapy. Liz said that she never pushed her aunt to do anything or stay away from doctors. She said that Mari chose to do what she did, and made the changes on her own, which had nothing to do with her juicing but everything to do with her faith. But, Mari passed away in December 2017, after the disease spread to her blood, liver and lungs, and belated attempts to try chemotherapy and radiotherapy failed.
