Critiquing the Critics at Sciencebasedmedicine (Burzynski: Cancer Is A Serious Business, Part 2:)

Like the first Burzynski movie, only more so?


Merola is subhuman filth

We’re accused of bullying cancer patients online for daring to say

“there’s no evidence”,

yet he can effectively say

“Those parents killed their children

They weren’t Burzynskiite Twoo Believers, and look at the result” on film, without feeling remotely troubled about it

and how it was abused by Stan the Conman*

For Merola to stoop so low as to place the death of these tiny children on the heads of their parents, is something I cannot understand

It makes me with I believed in god and hell

It’s just unfathomable that someone could be so base and callous about dead children

But no, we’re the evil ones

*Almost as bad as this is Stan’s new spin doctor’s claim that the fundraising families have lied about the costs of “treatment” in order to fleece the public”

After reading the above comments that were Eblurto’d out:

“It makes me with”

I had NOT read it

Maybe ElBlurto should have read THIS:


A lot of the Burzynski publicists’ favorite cases seem to have been cancers where the chances weren’t good right from the beginning — diffuse pontine glioma, glioblastoma multiforme, etc

This allows them to paint doctors as cold for not promising much hope

It’s the old

“Doctors sent me home to die!” meme

Patients who want to be given hope, above all hope, sometimes interpret bad news as deliberate cruelty”

You mean all of Burzynski’s success were because of Doctors misdiagnoses; since they should have told the patient to go home and “Heal Thyself” through “Spontaneous Regression” ?

“Guy Chapman

How could you be so heartless, Dr Gorski?

Eric Merola almost bankrupted himself to bring us this compelling tale of the brave maverick doctor whose success in promoting a non-toxic cure for cancer has been ruined by evil skeptics in the pay of Big Pharma!

Surely that outweighs all the suffering and crippling financial burden imposed on patients?

Surely we must give Burzynski a free pass form all criticism of his unethical and frankly incompetently conducted trials, in recognition of the selfless sacrifice of a man who might not make any money out of his latest long-form advertisement?”

You mean the man a “Skeptic Mule” questioned about funding because he used a tactic familiar to a lot of critics, the “I can’t be bothered to research” tactic:

“I can take satisfaction that when Brian got up to ask a question, identified himself as a Skeptic

(a “skeptic mule,” to be precise),

and, prefacing his question with the observation that Merola accused all of us of being funded by pharma,

asked him about how he has funded his movies,

Merola reportedly looked none too pleased. It was at this point that I think we get a full lesson in where Merola’s at”


Ah, I get it now

The Skeptics™ are the cranky old person at the end of the street, the one who screams,

“Get off my lawn, damn kids!” at passersby, launching into meandering screeds when provoked

“In my day, we didn’t have any of this ‘antineoplaston’ tomfoolery

No, when you got cancer, you suffered until you died!

It was character building.””


“The Skeptics” (Burzynski: Cancer is Serious Business, Part II)

The “group” “The Sketics” claims is NOT a “group” and which allegedly does NOT spread “misinformation”

Why do some Burzynski critics claim they are NOT a “group” when they use the same blog Title ?

“The Skeptics” non- group activity on Forbes:

Forbes Learns a Lesson, but Not the Right One: Censorship and Bias re: A Film Producer, A Cancer Doctor, And Their Critics

Respectful Insolence or Hipocritical Oath

The purpose of this blog is to combat the “misdirection,” “misinformation,” “disinformation,” and lies posted by entities like Orac (HerOrac {“Hero” “Orac”}, OracQuack) and his “Oracolytes” on the “Respectful Insolence” blog on:

Orac and friends ignore “facts,” “fact-checking,” “research,” citations and references like the plague, and instead engage in hyperbole

They refer to those who don’t agree with them as “trolls,” “insane,” and use other inane adolescent terms in their attempts at misdirection away from dealing with what they do not want to recognize
