I have received very serious complaints from families about Falun Gong.
Some of those complaints centered upon someone not taking medication and/or receiving proper medical care because they believed the group practice and/or Li Hongzhi would heal them.
Li Hongzhi teaches this and disturbing emails I have received from Falun Gong true believers confirm it.
It seems like Mr. Hongzhi wants it both ways.
That is, to make health claims that entice new recruits, but then carefully take steps to avoid any responsibility by creating a premise for plausible denial.
No scientific study has provided objective evidence that might substantiate any of the healing claims regarding the exercises.
Li Hongzhi is a racist and bigot.
A new Web site has interesting information about the group.
