JayWalk, yes, I agree. Frankly, they're all whores- selling themselves to the highest bidder.
FYI SB1246 is the number of the Senate bill.
Let's hope the tipping point is soon!
This reminds me of Harry Hoxsey, Max Gershon, etc. Not to mention the Essiac and bloodroot therapies.
I had a doctor who wanted to remove an ovary because of a large cyst, I refused, improved my diet, reduced by half the cyst in 4 months and pissed her off. Needless to say she's not my doctor anymore. Trust.
Note that Dr Weil also does not promote a plant-based diet - at least last time I checked. That reduces his value to me personally.
I don't think Bill Maher was being insulting - he was (unsuccessfully) trying to be funny - it's what he does. I don't think he really 'got' that Dr. Campbell is a scientist interested in discussing a very serious and necessary topic - and so the humor fell flat. Once Bill started asking appropriate questions and got off the jokes, it worked out ok. Of course, it's difficult to have a 5 minute conversation on this topic and have it be complete. Bill is vegetarian, I believe. Does anyone know for sure?

I understand that it's illegal to take pictures of military objects, but farms? This is getting insane
Since two of my friends died of cancer this movie is even more important for me. I wish that more people could watch this.
There are two issues here -- the trustworthiness of big government/big business fascism, and the best way to heal. I take it that the video is one more piece of the everlasting stream of evidence that big government control, in collusion with the medical/industrial establishment, is a disaster. Do we really need to have that demonstrated again? Dictatorships, even when implemented with patronizing good intentions, create immense suffering and injustice. Let freedom ring!
However, the second issue is also important. How shall we understand healing? For the last century, medicine has developed a very impressive set of technologies for dealing with disorders that are a function of a more or less separable PART of the whole physiological/psychological person. However, we are running into increasing difficulties with those disorders that involve the person as a whole -- these emerge quite noticeably in the so-called degenerative disorders that absorb most of the modern health care costs. I take it that the great healers of cancer an other such disorders have generally not attempted to introduce another medical technique, but have attempted to create a systemic environment in which the body's natural restorative and self-healing capacities are liberated to do their own amazing work. Of course, this approach requires the responsible action of the client (I do not use the term patient, as it has come to be associated the irresponsibility of sick persons to participate in their own healing).
This is why, if I had cancer, I would probably not consider Burzynski's approach. It might work in certain circumstances. In the absence of more research, who really knows? But we all know that the body possesses remarkable mechanisms of self-healing. Moreover, diet -- especially a whole food plant based diet -- is key to promoting those capacities. So, after I have had my carrot juice, please pass the broccoli and brown rice, thanks.
trent489, yours is the most cogent reply. The FDA's behavior does not legitimize Burzynski's approach. My hunch is Burzynski does not have a valid treatment.
