Dr Miracle - the new season of Chameleon that examines a deadly alkaline diet

Press Release · New York, NY, USA ·

Sony Music Entertainment and Campside Media today announced the all-new season of the highly acclaimed investigative podcast series, Chameleon: Doctor Miracle. The eighth season of Chameleon examines the Alkaline Diet and its pioneer, Dr. Robert Young. Starting in the early 2000s, the Alkaline Diet became a widely popular diet in America — even receiving support from Hollywood — as it claimed to reverse aging and cure terminal illness.

Hosted by journalist Larrison Campbell, Chameleon: Doctor Miracle features real stories of cancer patients who participated in the diet in the hope for a cure, but suffered a worse fate instead. Listeners will be exposed to the gripping horrors behind Dr. Young’s Alkaline Diet and the Miracle Ranch, his retreat space for patients undergoing his treatment.

“Doctor Miracle is coming at a time when parts of the Alkaline Diet, like alkaline water, have never been more popular. But no one seems to realize that it’s all based on a lie," said host Larrison Campbell. “Robert Young sold the alkaline diet to the masses by promising it could cure everything--cancer, diabetes, even hair loss. It’s a lie that would lead to tragic circumstances. This season of Chameleon exposes the true horrors behind the fad diet and how Dr. Young’s creation continues to affect our diet culture today.”
