    Has anyone in the network heard of or had any dealings with a guy named Ben Ong?

    Recently recieved an e-mail from Ben Ong ([email redacted]. com). Googled him and found website called Bens Prostate. This guy makes a lot of claims for curing prostate problems. He says on his site that he can't cure cancer, but leads you to believe he can if you order his book ($49.00) and use his supplements ($79.95 a bottle for 30 day supply).
    I would like to find out if this guy is a scammer or for real.

      If he is trolling the internet looking for cancer patients to prey on and sell his stuff to, he is a scammer, or maybe not a scammer, if you want to buy his book and snake oil, anyone can sell anything, if you will buy it. If he had a great approved method of dealing with cancer, lots of doctors would be using his methods, or products.
      This is just me, I never heard of him, but I wouldn't go to a guy that was on the internet selling hodgkins pills.

      I know we like to look for other ideas, but I don't think so.

      Best of luck to you, hope your condition is going the right way!

      I agree with drummerboy. If you read that he cannot cure cancer, and that he's not a medical doctor, and there are also all kinds of disclaimers to put off responsibility onto you, there's not much further you need to go.

      Ong also sells a cancer test that he says is more accurate than a biopsy. Only $2000 and , of course, insurance pays no part of it. It seems that urologists have hit the jackpot wanting to biopsy all of our prostates. One of my internal medicine professor reminded me that none of our dads died of P cancer but most of them had it when they died. He further stated that we all have rogue cells in our 60 year old bodies and by puncturing our prostate, we certainly release those rogue cells into the rest of our body.

      I have it on good authority that this so-called Ben Ong individual is a fake and a fraud and hides behind a pseudonym. His real name is Leo Scheiner, a Jew that lives and works in Golders Green. I seem to remember No. 813, Finchley Road. I ordered some stuff from him back in 2007 in response to one of his ads in the newspaper, I seem to remember it was the Daily Mail or Daily Telegraph. He runs a dodgy business called The Nutrition and Health Institute of all things but when you look more closely and delve deeper, there is no such name or building associated with any institute. He runs his company from his bedroom and there are a few staff there also working from his home according to a man called Bart Wolffe told me over the phone when he dealt with my delayed order of two months! I asked him many questions about the business as I was very sceptical. He said that the business is registered somewhere in the Dominican Republic making it very difficult for anybody to prosecute him. This Bart chap also mentioned that Mr. Scheiner is very mean and stingy and doesn't pay any income tax and says that the staff's wages are paid tax free from Austria thus making it difficult for the Inland Renenue to trace it. I couldn't believe how this employee was so open and friendly about everything. He also said he doesn't get paid enough money.

      I have done some more research on him because I feel that the whole concept is nothing but a scam. Apparently, he has written a book about prostate health going under the name of some Chinaman - Ben Ong. But it's not really a book but some makeshift booklet piecing xerox copies of A4 paper stapled together. Contrary to popular belief, he has got all his information from a man by the name of Roger Mason who left the mainland to go to America many decades ago. He is a leading expert, highly respected and recognised nutritionist and has written many books and is highly qualified in his field.

      This so-called Ben Ong a.k.a. Leo Scheiner virtually copied his website www.youngagain.com and re-named it www.youngagain.co.uk. together with the entire minerals and supplements. I don't think that website exists anymore. He has also copied huge drafts verbatum literally word-for-word from Roger Mason's book on the prostate health and other renowned authors and has given the impression that it's all his own hard-earned work!!

      I managed to get hold of Roger Mason some years ago which was very difficult I might add and had a long a detailed conversation with him. He said that he cannot stand this bloke Scheiner and has had many dealing with him and sued him years ago based on the fact that he has used all his knowledge, expertise and experience to suit his own ends and make money out of it. Mr Ong/Scheiner has the nerve and audacity to call himself an entrepreneur according to Roger Mason.

      Personally, my advice is I would not have anything to do with this individual. Don't waste your money.

      I hope this helps.

      I bought his book all about the prostate and it’s simply an advert for his capsules - these of course contain all the substances to cure you that no serious urologist in the rest of humanity has thought about - I nearly was foolish enough to buy them but cancelled the order ! At which point I got a call from a guy working for this fraud chasing up the order ( out of the kindness of his heart telling me how good the stuff was ) I questioned the use of the false name and he gave me some irrelevant XXX .
      My advice is don’t but the book don’t buy the snake oil suppliments )

      I bought prostate supplements from this scam artist and took them according to the directions on the bottle. I wound up that same day in the hospital emergency room. If you're having prostate issues, go to a board certified urologist. These quick fix scam artists prey on our fears and desire for an easy remedy.

      I agree with greendragon's view of Ben Ong as being a scam artist but wonder why her reference to him as a Jew, as if this contributes to his lack of character. To me this sounds like anti-Semitism, a moral cancer that is sadly on the rise in today's world.

      Hi, I got so call ben ongs book and say some part of his book is really very useful. No doubt of that. I researched and found most of them are correct. But his so call medications are all fake. I lost around £200.00. But it didn't work. His products are not certified by British Medical Association. So take my advice if you are in Britain and if you are suffering from enlarged prostate please contact your GP asap. He will send you hospital and the Urologist will check everything for you. Only two types of medications are available. Alpha blockers and 5 alpha. Side effects are serious then your present condition. But must get advise from your GP. ZGP knows very well what to do and always take his advise. Hope this advise will help every one. Look after yourself. Oh yes stop eating red meat, tea, fizzy drinks, alcohol, surgar/ sweetener and junk meal from shop. Look after your prostate.

      I just read his book, I think it makes perfect sense.
      Have not tried his suppliments.
      I think the book is an advertisement for his suppliments. But he as all the studies listed at back

      Posts that am reading here about Ben Ong is quite scary!! I have been using his supplements for over 18 months and am still alive and OK. My PSA has gone drastically down, niggling pain that i usually feel around my lower abdomen on the left flank has pretty much dissipated since i have been taking his supplements. I stumbled on this review page today just by chance and what I've read so far is scarring me. I quickly went to do checks on some of his so called team of medical experts and they all appeared genuine folks and nutrition experts and professors. I have copied their numbers and i will begin calling them as soon as poss. If truly this guy is a scam and slowly killing people just to make a few bucks, why has the police not got involved to arrest and shut down his operations before he kills a lot of people!
