    In June 2016, Noel claimed on Twitter that an Electromagnetic Pulse device costing £2,315, was "A simple box that slows ageing, reduces pain, lifts depression and stress and tackles cancer. Yep tackles cancer!".

    He provoked criticism after tweeting to a man with kidney cancer, lymph node metastases and psoriatic arthritis that "Scientific fact-disease is caused by negative energy. Is it possible your ill health is caused by your negative attitude?".

    A day later, he appeared on ITV's This Morning, revealing that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in November 2013. He claimed that a "very stressful, very negative period" in life had caused his prostate cancer.

    "I was, I thought, very, very healthy. I know why I got my cancer... the definition of stress is negative energy. It didn't just decide to manifest itself, there was cause".

    He added: "I then had my tumour destroyed by sound waves, proving yet again energy is at the heart of this issue. I believe pulsed electromagnetism has a role to play in tackling cancer and I will always believe that."
