Doctor is stripped of his medical license after selling bogus $15,000 fecal ... trends now
A Canadian doctor has been stripped of his medical licence after conning families out of thousands of dollars for bogus autism cures.
Charlatan Jason Klop charged $15,000 for fecal transplants which involved taking bacteria from the poop of healthy patients and transferring them to autistic children as young as two.
Klop admitted that his business violated multiple Health Canada rules as well as those standards set by the College of Naturopathic Physicians and will pay a meager $7,500 fine.
Klop has made claims that he has seen 'dramatic improvements' in the autism symptoms of children he's treated with fecal microbiota transplants at clinics in Mexico, Hungary, Australia and Panama

A notice by the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia said Klop was removed from the institution on Wednesday. He will have the right to apply for reinstatement in five years.
As well as admitting to promoting and selling fecal transplants that are not approved for autism, he admitted making 'unverifiable statements' in his advertising.
He has claimed to have seen 'dramatic improvements' in autism symptoms of young children he has treated at his clinics in Mexico, Hungary, Australia and Panama, for a measly $15,000.
Klop also claimed to have met donor screening requirements from the Food and Drug Administration and American Gastroenterology Association. But it was later revealed that his lab had no protocols for screening donors or analyzing product, and disposed of fecal waste with household garbage.
Court documents reveal that he had 'treated' at least 60 children in this way.
