Suspended sentence for 'miracle cure' cancer drug man Andrew Harris from Partington

Messenger Newspapers: Andrew Harris believes Triamazon can cure cancer Andrew Harris believes Triamazon can cure cancer

A PARTINGTON MAN who sold Triamazon, an unlicensed ‘cure for cancer’, over the internet has been given a suspended sentence.

Andrew Harris, 50, from Hardwick Road, told Messenger that he is not a conman and had just wanted to tell people about the drug that he believes saved his life.

The father-of-five claims that he is in remission from non-Hodgkin Lymphoma after taking Triamazon and said it is a ‘miracle cure’ that he believes can help other cancer sufferers.

Mr Harris imported Triamazon, an Amazon jungle plant remedy, and sold it to cancer sufferers online for £250 per course of 100 pills.

But it is illegal to import and sell medical products without a licence and Mr Harris was charged with two counts of importing a medical product without a licence, one count of selling a medical product called triamazon and one count of possession of a medical product called triamazon intended for use on the market.

He dramatically changed his plea to guilty part way through his trial and on Tuesday at at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court was sentenced to 12 months in prison, suspended for 18 months, on each of the four charges to run concurrently .

Judge Adrian Smith told Mr Harris that it was not a deception case, but the seriousness of the offence was the fact that the drug had never been tested on human beings or tested for use on UK markets and had posible harmful side-effects including links to Parkinson’s Disease symptoms.

He said: “I accept that while you undoubtedly would have made some profit, your motive was to provide fellow cancer sufferers with an alternative treatment.

“An aggravating factor is that the people that would be keen to spend their money on something like this are either terminally, or fearful of being terminally ill, vulnerable people whose false hopes were raised by you.”

Mr Harris, who relies on benefits, was arrested in 2008 after a joint raid on his home by police and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

After sentencing, he told Messenger that he felt he had cleared his name.

Mr Harris said he blames the government, MHRA and drug companies for preventing cancer sufferers from accessing Triamazon.

He said: “Because legally Triamazon can only be sold as a food supplement, with no health claims attached, they are denying people the knowledge of what this drug can do.”

Dear Andrew, I would very much like to thank you for helping me so much, it was only by chance that I found your web site, and how Triamazon had helped you fight cancer.
In 2006 I had a cancerous tumour the size of an orange removed from my face, they had to cut through my jaw to reach it. I then had Radiotherapy daily for 6 weeks which was horrendous.
This last July, I was diagnosed with a secondary bone cancer, after suffering for a year, and unable to walk, an x-ray showed a 5 ½ centimetre fracture in my pelvis bone, so I was also unable to sit, and the bone was quite large, and was very painful, so I had a cushion.
In August 09 the oncologist and my consultant said that I had about a year to live, as the cancer had shown up on the bone scan, MRI scan and my first Pet scan, to have spread to my buttock. All they could offer me were pain relief and on the 21st August I started on 4,000mg paracetamol daily + 30mg Feltene meth to help with the pain.
Since taking Triamazon these past four weeks I have completely weaned myself off the above drugs.
Sp I truly believe Triamazon is working for me and after only taking it for one week, I noticed my tumour between my legs has got SMALLER. I am in no pain what so ever, do not need to use my cushion, can walk quite a distance, shop, and do my own housework.
My husband who is a sceptic, cannot believe the change in me. So Andrew, Please keep the good work up.
Spread the news, as I shall do, and have been doing.
When I next go to the hospital for my next appointment 7th Jan, I cannot wait to see what the doctors say, especially when they check my bloods. I really believe this product is a miracle, and cannot understand why the medical profession are so ignorant about natural remedies.

Once again Andrew a big thank you and a thank you Triamazon.
All the best
Louise Coarse
PS The small fracture in my right buttock no longer hurts me (Pain Free now) Britain is put to shame in cancer survival league.
