Hillary Clinton Health Conspiracy: Parkinson’s Disease Confirmed, Unfit For Presidency?
Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s health has been the focus of numerous conspiracy theories, ranging from the totally absurd to the almost factual.Advertisement
This is not surprising considering that the former Secretary of State’s health condition has been regularly brought up since she became a public figure.
However, a persistent rumor about the ex-senator that doesn’t seem to go away is one that suggests she is plagued with a serious ailment – Parkinson’s disease.
And despite her doctor releasing a statement attesting to her fitness to govern, speculations that she may have the dreaded disease continue to gain traction, according to Snopes.
Hillary Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, has already come forward and revealed that the former First Lady has had bouts of deep vein thrombosis (blood clots), an elbow fracture, a concussion, and ongoing conditions of hypothyroidism and seasonal pollen allergies.
Although this rundown of past and existing ailments may look a bit alarming to some, Parkinson’s disease was never included in Dr. Bardack’s statement.
However, Dr. Ted Noel, an anesthesiologist based in Orlando, Florida, believes otherwise.
In fact, he even filmed a 16-minute video, titled “Hillary Clinton’s Illness Revealed” putting forward his theory which basically states: “Hillary Clinton has advanced Parkinson’s disease.”
Dr. Noel noted several reasons why he thinks the 68-year-old presidential candidate is plagued with the debilitating brain disease.
In his video, he cited a Wikileaks-released US State Department e-mail showing that the former senator asked her aides to do research on new drugs to treat Parkinson’s.
Then, he mentioned three incidents wherein the wife of ex-US president Bill Clinton fainted, or fell, which he said are tell-tale signs of the dreaded disease.
After which, Dr. Noel points out episodes of “brain-freeze” involving Hillary Clinton.
But it turns out that the anesthesiologist’s assertion is unsubstantiated and purely based on hearsay, conjecture and conspiracy theories.
Meanwhile, Info Wars cited television personality Dr. Drew Pinsky who also publicly questioned the health condition of the Yale law graduate on his show in CNN.
The doctor’s show was however canned by network executives when he refused to retract his statements about the Democratic nominee’s health.
Hillary Clinton’s health condition is expected to be subject of more conspiracy theories as election day draws near.
