Stainslaw Burzynski exposed

16 October 2012, 13:00
Yesterday I contacted, BBC, Sky& CNN as such as an article was really in their news readers' interests. I'll get to this later....

Who is Stainslaw Burzynski?

I don't know the man so I am reluctant to judge him, but what he does publicly I will judge (as it then becomes a public issue) and that is, he runs an alternative treatment clinic in the USA for cancer patients.


The Burzynski clinic provides

Unproven and under-publicized treatment with a treatment that he has come up with, but has failed to publish scientific articles for that can be scrutinized by his peers (professionals).

A low Budget YouTube video


Seems to have conned a fair amount of people into falling for his (what I see as a scam). The movie starts off in a very dogmatic fashion where a former police detective claims he can spot fraud as a detective and then qualifies himself (alone) to be a professional at detecting fraud and that according to him, Burzynski is not a fraud.


The movie then shifts to some testimonies (from people along with some people who were "cured" by him along with very limited records that are torn to pieces by this  blog (in partnership with National Geographic) tears to shreads:

The movie then moves on to attack the medicine industry for being about profiteering (I partially agree). We will bear in mind here that the pharmaceutical companies employ thousands and Burzynski employs about 150 people (based on what one of his patients have told me).


To the point

Yesterday I wrote an article about how brain cancer research remains under-funded and located disturbingly high numbers of funds raised (by the public mostly) that have funded brainwashed people to go to this clinic. It is as this point that it becomes public interest,  because first it most these monies are raised publicly as acts of love that become acts of selfishness, because they target individuals who go to this clinic and (in my opinion) are far better off in proper research organizations that find cures for cancer (some at 100%). What further happens (in public interest) is that these families turn to local media that further act as marketing tools for Burzynski and this have a knock-off effect on others.


Now Burzynski (movie) attacks costs of conventional medicine, but let's look at some funds (remember he only employs around 150) needed that I located at the following links (most raised publicly):

90 000 GBP per year!

20 000 GBP (goal)!


http://www.teamhannah.com/

193 000 GBP!

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/cancer-girl-given-three-weeks-1332440


200 000 GBP!

http://skepticalhumanities.com/2011/12/05/more-patients-whose-deaths-burzynski-has-presided-over/


The amounts are staggering and the last article is very sad.


The cruel irony

Out of love, fearand desperation these families try everything, but these acts become acts of selfishness by diverting needed funding to where it is not needed and doesn't (always). Burzynski's treatment seems to work occasionally, but some people go there having undergone conventional treatments and some go there as a complementary and most importantly cancer can go into remission  that leads to some MRI images indicating smaller tumors that simply occur by themselves, without treatment.


People like Burzynski who target the healthcare industry for profiteering and charge equally high prices for treatment (with fewer employees) need to read this:

http://report.nih.gov/nihfactsheets/ViewFactSheet.aspx?csid=75 and be investigated. Some blood cancers have gone from near 100% mortality to 90% cured due to  public funding reaching the correct research.


Final Word

Most these links that I posted are from people with brain tumors with the lowest funding of all cancer groups. They are not looking at possible causes as to why a treatment for such cancers is elusive (I sight people with similar behavior to them that preceded them) and now they are continuing the trend. Their loving acts of kindness may be tarnished as acts of selfishness in future and should any people raise public funds that go to fraud and regrettably pass away under such circumstances, they not only leave behind a grieving family, financial burden, but also a tarnished legacy.
