    If you believe that cancer research is important and if you also affirm that a society should offer the best treatment possible to its citizens, then watch this documentary and learn of Dr Burzynski struggle.

He may be the key to the biggest breakthrough in the fight against cancer yet. Unfortunately by also being the inventor and solely patent holder of this new non-toxic cancer treatment, he is now faced with a legal battle as challenging as cancer itself against the FDA, NCI and multibillion pharmaceutical companies who will not sit and tolerate any serious threat to their profits. All the negative reviews focus on the heavy amount of transcripts and medical records that are presented as a way to say it is boring yet for me it was precisely what I needed to see in order to believe that Dr Burzynski is a credible and a serious person who is indeed bringing amazing results to patients once doomed to a terrible prognosis by regular treatment methods. It is a serious documentary focusing on an important issue, there will be evidence presented to support it. In fact there they have a whole website that continues to follow Dr Burzynski's struggle and where I found out that they already reached the necessary signatures in a White House petition to get Antineoplastons (Dr Dr Burzynski's treatment) approved for public use. Spread the word and get people to watch this documentary to form their own opinion. http://www.burzynskimovie.com Expand

    A truly stunning documentary. This film really should be required viewing for the entire planet. Classic case of science and profit clashing. There is also a sequel to this film, look out for that. I was further stunned when I saw that everything in the film is fully documented and verified via the film's "interactive transcript" on its website. Wen you google this doctor's name you getA truly stunning documentary. This film really should be required viewing for the entire planet. Classic case of science and profit clashing.

I was further stunned when I saw that everything in the film is fully documented and verified via the film's "interactive transcript" on its website. Wen you google this doctor's name you get all sorts of negative propaganda, and if you dig further you will find out it's only 2 or 3 people publishing these blogs, and they are paid by the cancer industry to do it! Astroturfing at its best. Expand

  1. Through all the fuzzy science, Merola sees a savior; you’ll see a dull editorial masquerading as objective reporting.
  2. 0
    Who's the bigger charlatan--Burzynski or Merola--and why is this conspiratorial rubbish being released into theaters?

    Despite its infotainment look, Burzynski ultimately proves convincing.
