***SKEPTIC ALERT***

I actually saw Burzynski The Movie: Cancer is Serious Business.  I know it's been discussed in other threads, but I'd love to discuss it with other like-minded people who may have seen it.  I read this review, and have to say I completely agree with the author.  Of course, I nearly always agree with the evidence-based stuff I read there, LOL!

Hi thenewme,

Orac posted a good review of the movie on his blog today.

There was another excellent review of the movie posted by someone else. It was a few months ago. I'll see if I can find it for you.

Wow

My husband had warts when he was a kid. He ate Miracle Whio sandwiches (I know-ick) and they went away. If I find 2 more people they worked for is that a cure for warts? (Yes I know about the power of suggestion-my point was the rule of 3)

I do not believe anyone who only has testimoials as proof.

If you don't believe in the testimonies that were pro Burzynski that were in Federal Court then why should I believe any of the testimonies you've given on a internet forum?

I haven't seen the movie, but I'm not qualified to judge it anyway if my history of believing in quackery is any evidence.  (I blame my ignorance on having a horrid science education.)  lol  I love Orac and the other bloggers on scienceblog.com.  They've helped me see the error of my beliefs on many subjects and I'm trying to make up for lost time.

Excellent article from Discovermagazine.com about Burzynski's clinic's threats to sue anyone who publicly criticizes him.  Amazing the lengths some people will go to to be allowed to take advantage of others.

"On April 11, 2012, the Texas Medical Board will try to revoke Dr. Burzynski's medical license, resulting in the closure of his clinic, the abandonment of all his patients, and risking any possibility of Antineoplastons gaining FDA-approval." 

That's the most positive news I've read about Burzynski!   It's a sorry shame that he's been allowed to continue his dangerous quackery for as long as he has.

Really good analysis of the "evidence" presented by Burzynski.

Mercola is another affiliate-income quack who, IMHO should never be cited as a credible resource regarding healthcare or medicine.

The commenters on Orac's blog speculate that any results Burzynski is getting are due to him underhandedly prescribing real chemo drugs off-label.  Interesting.
