Like most American MDs Ben Carson is a fraud and a bribe taker and a greedy bastard. Some of the sleaziest MDs are spine and neurosurgeons and they are the most heavily bribes as well as being the most richly compensated.
Carson had an illegal and sleazy financial relationship with a phony supplement company called Mannatech, Inc.
In March of last year, Dr. Ben Carson, the conservative star considered a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, appeared in a video for Mannatech, Inc., a Texas-based medical supplement maker. Smiling into the camera, he extolled the benefits of the company’s “glyconutrient” products: The wonderful thing about a company like Mannatech is that they recognize that when God made us, He gave us the right fuel. And that fuel was the right kind of healthy food. You know we live in a society that is very sophisticated, and sometimes we’re not able to achieve the original diet. And we have to alter our diet to fit our lifestyle. Many of the natural things are not included in our diet. Basically what the company is doing is trying to find a way to restore natural diet as a medicine or as a mechanism for maintaining health.
Ben Carson's Criminal Relationship with Mannatech
According to a CNN headline, Carson had an "extensive relationship" from 2004 to 2014 with Mannatech, Inc., a company that produces dietary supplements made from substances such as aloe vera extract and larch-tree bark. Carson gave four paid speeches at company events, but he denies having been paid by Mannatech to do anything else, and says he has been a "prolific speaker" who has spoken before many groups.
In a 2004 speech at a Mannatech event, Carson credited the company's products for the disappearance of his prostate cancer symptoms. Carson's relationship with Mannatech continued after the company paid $7 million in 2009 to settle a deceptive-marketing lawsuit in Texas over claims that its products could cure autism and cancer. Carson's most recent paid speech for Mannatech was in 2013, for which he was paid $42,000; his image appeared on the corporation's website as recently as 2014.
When questioned about his relationship with the company at the October 28, 2015, CNBC GOP debate, Carson said, "That's easy to answer. I didn't have any involvement with them [Mannatech]. Total propaganda. I did a couple speeches for them. I did speeches for other people - they were paid speeches. It is absolutely absurd to say I had any kind of relation with them. Do I take the product? Yes. I think it is a good product."  Politifact rated that statement as "false," pointing to Carson's paid speeches for the firm and his appearences in promotional videos in which he gave favorable reviews to its products, despite not being "an official spokesman or sales associate." But when the CNBC moderator stated in a follow question that Carson was on the company's website, Carson said that he did not give the company permission to do so, and the debate crowd loudly booed the moderator's follow-up question. Carson had earlier attempted to distance himself from the company, stating that he was unaware of the company's legal history.

CARSON IS ALSO A LIAR: "There are more young black males involved in the criminal justice system than there are in higher education." — Ben Carson on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015 in a speech
Carson is an academic so he know this is bullshit but in case you didn't know here are the facts.
1. The latest figures, for 2013, show there were males in college, ages 18 to 24, who listed black as their race. The number grows to if you include males who identified themselves as black and some other race, such as Asian.
2 So, there is only one solid figure -- 75,000 black males ages 18 to 24 in prison. We’re not aware of any recent counts of the black males in that age group who were arrested, in jail, or on probation or parole at a particular time. SOURCE: Department of Justice CLICK HERE
