Celebrity chef Pete Evans has come under fire for claiming a lamp can treat the ‘Wuhan virus’ with ‘light recipes’.
The 47-year-old took to social media to promote the $15,000 lamp, which he claims can treat ‘Wuhan coronavirus’. There is no evidence it has any effect on the virus.
The BioCharger NG Subtle Energy Platform is described as a ‘hybrid subtle energy revitalisation platform’.
‘Four transmitted energies stimulate and invigorate the entire body to optimise and improve potential health, wellness, and athletic performance.
‘It works to optimize your health, wellness, and athletic performance by aligning and balancing the energy of every cell in your body.’

The My Kitchen Rules star said he and his family use the ‘non-invasive’ lamp ‘pretty much every day’.
‘The BioCharger is a pretty amazing tool that will take you down some a rabbit holes and it will take me an hour or two to explain it,’ he said.
He went on to say that the lamp is programmed with thousands of recipes with ‘a couple on there for Wuhan coronavairus that you may be interested in’.

Mandy-Lee Noble, a Brisbane based dietitian, shared the product online and slammed Mr Evans’ recklessness.
She also called on the Therapeutic Goods Administration and NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard to ‘shut Evans down’ and for Channel 7 ‘to stop giving him a platform’.
‘Although this device is unlikely to cause direct harm it can cause indirect harm if people believe it will treat or prevent COVID-19 infection,’ she told news.com.au.
‘It is a risk to the community response to the COVID-19 pandemic.’

Many social media users slammed the celebrity chef for putting the community in danger with his ‘lack of understanding’.
‘I am extremely disappointed with Pete Evans for making a claim like this,’ one person wrote.
‘How is Pete Evans not being bought to account on this? One could argue that this is at least as damaging as threatening to cough on someone,’ another commented.
‘Do you have evidence to back up your personal attack against Pete Evans or just throwing comments out there because he questions your personal views of the scientific narrative??’ another questioned.
