Ever Wondered If The Race For “The Cure” Is More Like A Jog?
Or a walk. Or maybe a run the other direction. Not for the leagues of earnest, hopeful people raising money, of course, but for the Powers That Be who can’t imagine a world full of unemployed oncologists and a billion dollar hole in Big Pharma’s pocketbook? It’s an extremely jaded point of view, but is it . . . right?
Burzynski, the Movie is the story of a medical doctor and PhD biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the FDA in American history.
“In the 1970’s, Dr. Burzynski made a remarkable discovery that threatened to change the face of cancer treatment forever. His non-toxic gene-targeted cancer medicine could have helped save millions of lives over the last two decades had his discovery not been criminally suppressed by the US government, as his therapy, called “antineoplastons,” have been shown to effectively help cure some of the most “incurable” forms of terminal cancer.”¹
Burzynski is backed by big names like Dr. Oz and Tony Robbins and is showing up in prestigous papers such as the L.A. Times and the The New York Times, who describes Byrzynski as
” . . . a stoic victim of patent fraud, government harrassment and scientific sabatoge. No one appears to contest the efficacy of his treatment; the problem . . . is a pharmaceutical industry with nothing to gain – and much to lose – from the introduction of a highly successful, nontoxic competitor to chemotherapy and radiation.”
New York Times, Jeannette Catsoulis, June 4, 2010 (emphasis mine)
Surprised? I was. I mean, I know the FDA does ridiculous things all the time (like steal birth tubs, hello!) but for the most part mainstream personalities seem oblivious. So, now that we’ve got their attention, I’d like to propose a slogan to replace The Cure.
A cancer treatment that has no toxic side effects, available to anyone that needs it. No radiation so (nearly) deadly that it shrivels a first grade girls ability to have children one day, no more lethal chemo soups. Even better, imagine it works better than anything we have on the market today. What would a world like that be like?
Every precious soul who has ever walked for “The Cure,” or endured excruciating chemo and radiation, or (like me) watched while someone they love was eviscerated by this deadly disease MUST SEE this film.
