Biography

Known across his native Flanders as the "Vitamin Doctor," Le Compte became famous during the 1960s with a series of books and TV shows dedicated to health and aging. He claimed that vitamins and yeast would increase longevivity, and called for elders taking a more active role in society. His claims led to a lifelong ban by the Belgian medical association.

Despite the ban he continued to practise medicine leading to his arrest. After a two decade legal fight he was vindicated by the ECHR and legally allowed to practise again.

Le Compte died in his sleep of a heart attack on January 3, 2008, in Knokke, Belgium.
