Burzynski —The Movie
Really a good documentary.
received a letter from a casual reader telling me that I’d blown my
credibility when I’d written about Dr Burzynski out of Texas—that he
was a quack and that the world knew he was a quack. Why would I even
write about this man?
wrote back to her that I’ve read all the web sites calling Burzynski
a quack, but what they fail to mention is that his therapy passed
phase II FDA trials. His “quackery” was healing breast cancer
upwards of 80% of the time, and that his therapy is the only viable
therapy for gliobolastoma multiforme, the most deadly of brain
cancers on the planet. I told her that all this is has been
verified, reluctantly, by the FDA.
met Dr Burzynski and interviewed him. His story is posted here:
when I’d heard they’d made a documentary on him, you can bet I asked
for a review copy.
documentaries are just a bore. In the past few years, documentaries
have come a long way with production values increasingly improving.
Documentaries like Supersize
Me, and The Yes Men
(and The Yes Men Save the
World) are setting the bar much higher. Entertainment value is
something we now expect in our documentaries. The shocking story of
Aspartame® was told in the documentary
Sweet Misery, however,
the production value fell short.
if you’re going to make a documentary, and you want your message to
get across, you have to really spend some money to lift the
Burzynski —The Movie,
they’ve spent the money. It is easy to watch6and enjoyable. Some of
the big names in the world of Alternative Medicine (conventional
medicine hates that term; they don’t like you thinking there’s an
“alternative”) show up to talk about Burzynski’s work. You’ll
recognize their names; we’ve talked about many at this site.
what comes across in this movie is the simple fact that a man who
left a communist country for the freedom of the USA in which he
could test and develop his theory, ran into just as many road blocks
has he had back home. Nut jobs out screaming for LIBERTY and FREEDOM
are sponsored by the big money that restricted the freedom of this
genius to heal cancer.
I say “road blocks?”
Burzynski’s trials and tribulations were Herculean. The entire force
of the medical industry tried for over a decade to destroy him.
Burzynski’s work has been slandered and libeled by all the “quackpots”
on the web. However, the film brings home the simple truth that this
man’s theory has become a scientific reality: Antineoplastons work
against the most dangerous cancers at a much higher rate than any
chemotherapy thus far tested. In simple fact, Burzynski’s
Antineoplastons have cured cancers that no other chemotherapy has
yet to cure.
sad part of this story, not really touched upon in the movie, is the
cost of this therapy. It will take nearly forever to get your
insurance plan to cover the expense. In the meanwhile, people are
dying. I just lost a friend to glioblastoma multiforme who could
have used Dr Burzynski’s miraculous cure.
anyone who hears skeptics parrot: “it’s all a conspiracy theory,
this implication that medicine really doesn’t want to cure cancer,”
this movie, this story, is the proof that it is not a conspiracy,
but simply the outgrowth of a medical system with profit as its
bottom line. The ultimate goal of any monopoly is to destroy all
competition in order to maintain market share. That is the goal of
American medicine; its goal is not to heal the sick. That is a
a good documentary about a great doctor with a fantastic therapy.
