It continues: Fundraiser for future Burzynski bill

And Burzynski marches on…

Nashua Uno Pizzeria fundraiser to aid Hudson girl with cancer –

The manager of a Nashua pizza restaurant is the latest to join the groundswell of support for 12-year-old McKenzie Lowe, the Hudson girl battling an aggressive brain cancer called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma.

The newest fundraiser comes as the family continues to circulate petitions in an attempt to convince the U.S. government and the Federal Drug Administration to grant McKenzie access to a drug called “antineoplastons,” which was developed years ago by controversial Texas physician Dr. Stanislaw R. Burzynski.

Shortly after the petition, which needs 100,000 signatures before authorities will consider the matter, was started last fall, U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., appealed to the FDA on behalf of McKenzie and her family.

This article is sympathetic, of course, towards the cancer victim. However, media does society a GREAT disservice by sugar coating or watering down the EGREGIOUS violations Burzynski has made and the unmentioned costs and suffering he puts patients through with an unverified, potentially toxic treatment. As many anti-antineoplaston bloggers have written, we are not attacking the patients. We feel sick knowing they have a faith-based belief in this treatment and nothing can dissuade them. It’s very disheartening that after the complete rip that USA Today did to Burzynski, people still support him.

We haz a sad.

There is NO reason why the FDA should allow the Burzynski clinic to continue this. And, I actually wonder if any new patients can be admitted since the FDA review. A child died during treatment and current consensus is clear that antineoplastons have by no means been demonstrated to be a miracle cure.

    Whose urine does Burzynski inject them with? His own? Theirs? Anyone know?

    I know this is on a MUCH lower level than what this guy is doing–but I see this so much in my conversations/debates/getting blocked in the paranormal scene. You can put facts in their face and if they are determined to believe, they are going to dig the heels in even further. In my opinion, it is largely because the ones that are pushing any kind of ‘woo’ are very skilled in telling people what they want to hear and drawing them in to superficial friendships. This in turn leads to unwavering (and dangerous) support from die-hard believers. In this case–it is potentially deadly. Yes. We haz a sad.

    This is the fourth one since USA Today put his mug on the front page of the paper. He’s got some legal stuff coming up. Again, it’s the everything but the squeal approach to patient exploitation.

    When does death by medical mistreatment from a quack become a murder?
    Why are people raising money for a child to to be potentially medically mistreated?

    He synthesizes antineoplastons at the Burzynski Research Institute. The urine collection thing was done at first (at bars I think, ick) but no longer.
