Dr Stanislaw Burzynski

#1 Post by Alan H » November 25th, 2011, 7:09 pm

There is a storm a brewin'...

There is a clinic in Texas that charges thousand of dollars for an unapproved cancer treatment. You may have seen an article in last Sunday's Observer about fund-raising by parents wanting to take their child to get this treatment.

There's no point in me telling the whole story: you can find out some of what is public by reading this blog list by Josephine Jones.

The start of this latest flurry was a blog post written by Andy Lewis (Le Canard Noir): The False Hope of the Burzynski Clinic and the follow-up: The Burzynski Clinic Threatens My Family.

Simon Singh Tweeted earlier today:
& this is the tip of the iceberg. More news soon. RT @lecanardnoir: blog: The Burzynski Clinic Threatens My Family. http://bit.ly/vCLwNe
More will be revealed soon...

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Your second quackometer link needs an 'l' (i.e. html, not htm). It goes to 'page not found' atm (although it does show the homepage and the post you link to is currently at the top as it's the most recent one).

Muphry's Law: this post was amended during preview to change "you're" to "your". Nearly let that one slip through...

Wow - things are really hotting up! there are over 100 tweets mentioning Burzynski on twitter today. This Marc Stephens guy (some form of legal representative for Burzynski?) sounds like a really nasty piece of work. See his comments 6 months ago to a questioner on Yahoo answers...

Obviously an very intelligent person. I just hope that he does not think of going into politics and wasting all that talent. There again he could be a good influence (unless he gets whipped into groupthink!)

This "doctor" should definitely have his licence revoked....

He's planning to follow his dad into medicine and I'm sure he'll do extremely well.

BBC’s Panorama to air Burzynski Documentary – Contact the Skeptics
On Monday, June 3rd at 8.30pm, the BBC’s Panorama series will be airing a documentary about Stanislaw Burzynski and his Clinic in Huston, Texas.
This should be very interesting.
