You two individuals have missed the entire post.
I didn't miss the post. I actually read this post, various articles and watched the entire video. I'm not debunking Dr. Burzynski, I'm just being
objective and realistic. Dr. Burzynski himself said he had a 30% success rate. The narrator said 25%. Listen to what his patients said on film.
Nowhere in the video does Dr. Burzynski state that ALL his patients treated by HIM were cured. Please explain where you are getting this info? He
never glamorized his results. He is honest and his claims are followed with clear documented evidence. That is what has got him where he is today.
This reality is portrayed throughout the video. 30% is not a bad thing. 30% success rate (based on a 5 year clean bill of health) on patients that
were diagnosed to be terminal is outright amazing. These patients had a near 0% survival rate and maybe 5% with dangerous and life threatening chemo
and radiation. He gave people who would were most likely going to die a 30% survival rate with no toxic side effects. This is astounding. We are on
the same side. I am only taking a more analytical approach.
You state that only 25% of Dr. Burzynski's patients had been successfully treated, but what you fail to realize is that the FDA would ONLY
allow him to treat patients WHO ALREADY had had radiation treatment and it didn't work, only few exceptions were made when it was extreme. So you
missed the fact that he, Dr. Burzynski, was treating patients who already were at a deficit because of the radiation treatment.
I'm mentioning his published success rate not his "what if" success rate. Before the FDA became involved Dr. Burzynski was seeing patients who never
received chemo - he and his patients confirm this on video. He also says that he was more interested in advanced incurable cancer cases which
definitely reduced his success ratio. I agree that the FDA did complicate it by requiring chemo and placing various restrictions and requirements on
his FDA trail patients. The FDA also sabotaged his first trial. If proper funding is provided to him and more cases accepted, then his success ratio
can go up tremendously. If he took on less advanced cancer cases then his success ratio can go up tremendously. Yet that has not been done yet. Any
discussion about future results would be purely speculative. There are so many other factors also that determines if someone survives cancer - mental
state, diet, autoimmune disorders, type and stage of cancer, other health disorders and diseases. It's impossible to say that there is a "cure all"
for anything. There is always going to be a margin of failure. That is just being realistic.
Those who went to him FIRST fully recovered and were cancer free.
Dr. Burzynski did managed to "cure" many cases that were terminal and incurable and has very well documented evidence to support this. Yet Dr.
Burzynski or his patients never stated that success is 100% certain. He never says "ALL". Many of his patients had cancers that returned and required
follow up treatment (until the final 5 yr remission goal was achieved). Many had inconsistent results and had to have the dosage increased. This comes
directly from the video. Unfortunately statistics regarding any failures are not listed in his video. I don't blame him, I wouldn't list any failures
either. That doesn't mean failures of his treatment don't exist. Most of those patients were terminal, so the fact that 30% survived is nothing less
than a medical miracle.
See this is the type of misinformation or not understanding WHAT is going on that leads to further disinformation. ALL of Dr. Burzynskis
patients who were treated just by HIM were successful
Disinformation goes both ways. You want to tell people to go see Dr. Burzynskis and they will be 100% cured? If by chance they are not cured what is
going to happen? Are they going to claim Dr. Burzynskis made false claims? I know I would. I would feel disappointed, upset and cheated. Do you think
this will help his cause? You think he would still be around today if he made claims of having the absolute cure for cancer? I doubt it. Doctors who
make absolute claims are typically listed as quacks and are eventually discredited by their peers. Peer support is critical for establishing a new
treatment. Dr. Burzynskis was smart, he let the results speak for themselves. The whole video he backs up every claim with documented evidence. This
careful and methodical approach is what has made him respected and accepted by many of his peers. Successful peer-review and FDA approval is essential
in making a treatment such as this available to the general public. The FDA would love to catch Dr. Burzynski making exaggerated or inaccurate claims.
This would give them ammunition to close down his practice. This is why the FDA has repeatedly attempted to discredit Dr. Burzynskis. Wikipedia, MSM
and other sources are obviously being manipulated as a smear campaign of Dr. Burzynskis and that needs to be stopped.
If you watch the video, you can tell his patients respected him for being up front and realistic about the success of his treatment. He never promised
anything except to do his best. This humble attitude is what made his patients into a loyal fighting force in supporting him throughout his ongoing
Understand biology and don't make claims that you do not fully comprehend. Watch the documentary again and LISTEN to what is being said and
HOW it is being said.
Make claims? I'm repeating what I saw and read - how is that making claims? Please explain how you "listen" that is different than me. Please explain
HOW you interpreted what is being said. Maybe I am missing something, yet I need some suggestions on what it is that you think I am missing.
I think the work of Dr. Burzynskis (and other cutting edge doctors) is amazing and revolutionary to the cancer field. It makes me furious to know that
he has achieved more success than the national cancer institute. The NCI has billions of dollars of taxpayer funding and Dr. Burzynskis is working on
pocket change and is actually making more progress in the fight of cancer. We need to spread the word for doctors like Dr. Burzynskis and provide as
much support as possible.
