  •  He has a pretty good success rate for a fraud. (3+ / 0-)

    And years ago when I first heard of him what grabbed my attention was the absurd lengths that the FDA went to try to stop him.

    I am planning a diary on him alone but I suspect it will have a slightly different slant than your might so I welcome your coments in it.

    It took an act of congress to allow him to continue his research. Notice that the FDA isn't trying to shut down CTCA? They are a politcal body and this is just a part of the politics of cancer.

    I cried when I watched the documentary Burzynski just recently. Thinking of all the people who could be helped if his research were funded.

    The politics of cancer. A friend of mine who is a biochemist and spent 20 years looking for a cure for cancer walked into work one day to find that the whole research department was closing down. More money in the pharmaceutical side. 52 researchers laid off.

    At the same time another big research company did the same. Only they laid off 150 researchers.

    As with anything, follow the money.

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.
