Skip to comments.A cancer CURE fought tooth and nail by the FDA
Posted on 11/06/2011 7:04:58 AM PST by Hayeksright
First time posting. Wanted to inform and start a discussion on the FDA and National Cancer Institute's motivations for FIGHTING a proven cancer cure...
We have several friends going through radiation and chemotherapy thretments after losing a beloved aunt two years ago from the same problem. I was clicking through netflix's movie offerings on our wii and ran across an immediate blood pressure inducer - a documentary about the fda, national cancer institute, David Kessler, and a cast of thousands that have worked for fourteen years to prevent Dr. Burzynski from up-ending the trillions of dollars invested in cancer research and treatment regimens. If you have friends or family suffering or want to see a beautiful documentary that lays out how our federal government is using us as Soylent Green for the medical establishment, please, please see this documentary. I am not affiliated with it in any way but after seeing it, I felt compeled to post here in addition to getting the information to my friends and family.
Hayek is right.
I haven’t watched the movie, I am sure that there is no bias. Yes, that is a bit of sarcasm.
I went to his site, it looks like he is complaining about the cost of completing the Phase III trials. I can’t blame him, the Feds have made it entirely too expensive to bring a new drug to market.
I feel better already.
Pinging decimon for health related thread! (Some might find the pics of early posters an added plus!)
Good first post, Hayeksright! Welcome to the new level of FReepdom beyond lurking!
For an overview of the treatment, see:
This is very old “news” and the efficacy of the treatment is highly dubious.
Watch the movie before posting. Otherwise, you sound ignorant.
I have watched it, and it is compelling.
It’s free on Netflix streaming by the way.
Watch the movie first, then post.
The link you post is from a group that is very biased against him.
I thought about posting this, and then I realized I’d get a lot of quacks complaining who hadn’t watched the movie. So, I guess you’ll take the heat instead.
If cancer treatments don’t come from government funded or drug company funded research, then they get labeled ‘alternative’ intentionally to demonize them. It’s surprising that Freepers respond in defense of the system set up to prohibit this doctor’s research when they claim they are freedom loving and small government folks.
I only followed your lead. Pay it forward, as they say.
Dr Burzynskis discovery threatens one of the largest and most lucrative industries in the history of mankind, the cancer treatment industry.
All those radiation machines and doctors who run them
All those chemotherapy drugs and the doctors who prescribe them
All those so called studies that just juggle the doses of chemo & radiation, and
All those surgeons who have been flailing at cancer for over a 100 years
If it (antineoplastons) is allowed to flourish, it renders obsolete the entire cancer treatment industry. He has discovered a non-toxic treatment that is about as close to cure as we have ever seen. If you think the lumber jacks in the Pacific Northwest were scornful of the spotted owl, you havent seen anything yet .
Also it is not just about money, it is about strongly held beliefs, beliefs that have meshed with the personality of virtually everyone in the cancer treatment industry, especially the physicians. In short, these beliefs are that cancer can only be treated with therapies that mutilate, poison, or burn the patient, in the hope that they “kill” the cancer ..Therefore, each patient who is miraculously cured by Burzynskis nontoxic therapy is not viewed as a breakthrough, or even as something good, but rather as a dangerous messenger of heresy, a terrible threat to their beliefs.”Dr Whitaker, M.D.
Maybe you should take your own advice. Get yourself educated on clincal trials and the rules of scientific evidence before spouting off on your conspiracy theories.
Welcome to FreeRepublic.
I looked into this in 2000 when a beloved relative had glioblastoma (brain cancer). At that time, Dr. Burzynski refused to finish the trials, skewed his results by lumping all grades of astrocytoma together, and demanded huge fees up front. I find him distasteful at the least in his unwillingness to prove his antineoplastons worthwhile, and possibly someone who preys on desperate people with a worthlesss “cure” at the worst.
