    Noel Edmonds Claimed Cancer Is Caused By Negativity So Now Everyone's Trolling Him

    "Noel Edmonds is addicted to boxes promising false hope."

    You will of course be aware of Noel Edmonds, whether from his Noel's House Party or Deal or No Deal eras.

    Channel 4

    Well, on Tuesday he got people pretty riled up on Twitter when he blamed a man's cancer on his negative attitude. So much so the TV star began to trend.


    It all began when Edmonds started tweeting about this box and claimed it can help beat the disease.

    A simple box that slows ageing, reduces pain, lifts depression and stress and tackles cancer . Yep tackles cancer!

    Just looked at latest stats showing very soon 50% of us will get cancer. @EMP_Pad is one way of reducing your risk #selfhealth

    Then this Twitter user, who suffers from kidney cancer, completely slammed the device, and dubbed his claims about the gadget "quackery".

    Fucking idiot. This sort of quackery should be illegal if it isn't already @TeessideSitP

    So Edmonds replied – and blamed the man's cancer on his "negative attitude".

    @VaunEarl Scientific fact-disease is caused by negative energy. Is it possible your ill health is caused by your negative attitude? #explore

    Which obviously didn't go down very well.

    Wow! How do you know I have a negative attitude. You have no idea who I am. #patronising #cancer

    So Twitter started going in on him.

    Exclusive footage of Noel Edmonds and the inventor of the anti-ageing, anti-cancer box at work on their invention.

    Has Noel Edmonds got a simple box to tackle falling 120 feet to your death when a carabiner clip fails?

    Noel Edmonds is addicted to boxes promising false hope.

    Noel Edmonds, Cure for Cancer? Heal or no heal.

    Some were actually pretty angry.

    Noel Edmonds is right about positivity. Everyone seems pretty positive he's an idiot.

    @NoelEdmonds @EMP_Pad Noel this is at best silly and at worst really dangerous. You're playing with people's lives here without any evidence

    Noel Edmonds:"negative energy causes cancer". If true, the entire medical profession would be behind it, not just a little bearded woo-vole.

    Others pointed out just how much he tweets about the item.

    Hmm... I wonder if Our Noel is being sponsored... 🤔

    But most people just trolled him and took the piss.

    Noel Edmonds is going full Icke. You never go full Icke.

    Noel Edmonds, I have some magic beans for sale. Very rare. A bargain at £100,000.

    If Noel Edmonds has a magic box that cures cancer, you probably have to out smart the banker to get what's inside it....

    A simple box that slows ageing, reduces pain, lifts depression and stress and tackles cancer . Yep tackles cancer!

    @NoelEdmonds Can it stream Sky Sports as well?

    @NoelEdmonds @VaunEarl " for Edmonds. Yeah. Ten minutes? Fine. My job here is done."

    I had cancer in 2008 and what got me through it was the prospect of spending the next six decades calling Noel Edmonds a fanny on Twitter.

    Although some did have this to say.

    Noel Edmonds isnt completely wrong, stress and negativity can effect your body more than you think, healthy mind, healthy body and all that

    And just in case anyone’s still in any doubt:

    Hi @NoelEdmonds just spoke to @EMP_Pad and they say their box DOES NOT tackle cancer.
