Well, this does not quite class as a conspiracy theory – but we are operating in the same territory.
Way back when he was a student Dr Burzynski discovered some naturally occurring metabolites and peptides which were severely deficient in cancer patients. His theory was that if you could take these metabolites and peptides from a healthy person and transfuse them into a cancer patient the latter’s cancer would disappear. He called them antineoplastons ‘due to their alleged activity in correcting and normalising neoplastic, or cancerous, cells’. In 1977 he founded the Burzynski Clinic in Houston where he proceeded to treat cancer patients (successfully) with his antineoplastons which targeted and dispersed the cancerous cells without damaging surrounding healthy cells – the major downside of conventional chemo and radio therapies.
However, this did not sit well with the makers of conventional anti-cancer treatments (chemotherapy, radio therapy etc) who persuaded the ever compliant FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to go for Dr Burzynski. Between 1986 and 1995 he faced four Grand Jury investigations, none of which proved successful – and none of which even attempted to prove that his therapy did not work (which it patently obviously did) but to prove that what some might see as irrelevant issues such as ’34 counts of mail fraud, and one count of contempt of court for violating the order against interstate delivery of Antineoplastons’….
It is a riveting story – which does not end with the Grand Jury investigations. If you wish to hear it in full you can buy the DVD here – thereby supporting Dr Burzynski in his next trial of strength with the FDA – and helping him to stay in business in case one day you might need his treatment….
