and, what you have been all waiting for…Superfudge (Fudge series Book 3) * Judy Blume

 

But, guess what? I have to get serious again. Sorry. *slowly removes Superfudge from your grasping hands* I’ll read to you later, I promise.

 

 

It got uglier on the West Coast. Much uglier. Kellogg had nothing on Dr. Linda Hazzard. Seriously.

At least 40 patients died under her care, taking her fasting and enema cure.

Died. We’re not talking shit chair; we’re talking death.

From the author Gregg Olsen’s website, starvationheights.com:

Some called her a brilliant and gifted healer; some were certain she was a fiend.

The preface of Linda Hazzard’s (I can’t call her Doctor, I apologize, I just can’t) book that drew her patients to Olalla: Fasting for the Cure of Disease.

At her death, Claire Williamson weighed less than 50 pounds, less than half her weight before the fasting cure. Still, the doctor insisted her patient’s weight had nothing to do with her demise.

Oh, no, lots of adult women weigh forty-something pounds and go on to lead full, fulfilling lives. As long as there are no strong winds, or medium-sized dogs to carry them off. Hell, a hearty cat could have given her a dangerous tumble.
