Australian health blogger admits lying about cancer

An Australian blogger who found fame after claiming she was conquering brain cancer through natural therapy, her app even getting chosen for the new Apple watch, admitted Thursday she never had the disease. Belle Gibson launched her successful The Whole Pantry business in 2013 — billed as the world’s first health, wellness and lifestyle app community — on the back of healing herself naturally through wholefoods and alternative therapies. Mother-of-one Gibson, 23, has now admitted she fabricated the cancer, when quizzed by the Australian Women’s Weekly.
