Cancer is Serious Business
An Emily Blunt Review
Directed by: Eric Merola
speaking? Burzynski is a remarkable expose on how
we, as American’s have lost any control over our healthcare.
Though, here we watch one doctor fight for what is right for
all, we also watch a witch hunt fueled by egos, profits, and
good old fashioned revenge.
discover the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is literally
paid for by the Big Pharma companies it is suppose to regulate
via fees for approvals…sounds a tad conflicting huh?
you had to have noticed how all these “new” drugs
come to market, and a year or so later a national commercial
runs requesting your legal business, “If you’ve
been hurt by drug ABC contact law firm…” The film
reminds you the trial-to-market time for new, or reformulated,
drugs is almost non existent anymore. Their packaging has
pages of possible side effects and the disclosures so vast;
you know they made sure you haven’t a chance of assistance
towards medical copay or help if you do develop an issue.
We, the public, are really now their trials and research.
It’s cheaper to pay a few lawsuits than discover dangers
is a film that now shows you a doctor, and biochemist, who
has found a cure for cancer; literally. But, cures are not
management. Management is profit-producing, cures are not.
Then, add to that a healthcare system whose motto is profit
over people, smatter in some elephant-sized egos and what
you get is an unbelievable eye-opening serving of rancid tasting
truth. And, the people behind stopping the good doctor’s
product have some pretty highly esteemed pedigrees; Heads
of research development and places with National Institute
of Cancer, NIH and the FDA.
is a dynamic documentary on Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski. He’s
a man who left Communism only to come to America and face
another real sneaky underground in cahoots capitalist-driven
Burzynski patented Antineoplasms that seem to kill cancer
even in the terminal cases. But, as he is not a big pharmaceutical
company the trouble starts on every level. It will be a 14
year battle...that is Herculean in its size.
unbiased point and shoot what is going on documentary shows
just how blatant how they attack the doctor, his cure, and
why they are attacking. Some of the documentarian’s
highlighted letters between parties to-and-fro show how firmly
the feet are planted in the ground against the good doctor.
The motives a combination of ego, revenge and plain old collusion
that leads to denial for clinical trial of a drug that could
opponent of Dr. B actually goes from working for The Cancer
Institute (who defunct Burzinski’s medicine) to working
for the FDA in a very high postion that no doubt was bought
with his pen and dismissal. The timelines are shocking. Over
and over “their” tests show no good outcomes for
Burzynski’s formula. The Dr.’s and non-biased,
find how well it works. Hmm.
Another doctor who worked with Dr. B had the gall to not only
deny the drugs abilities post agreements falling through,
but to attempt to partner with a big pharmaceutical company
to pattern it – and market it – in her name.
filmmaker, Eric Merola, has included a second disc in the
DVD kit, that shows much of the film's interviews extended.
These edited-out-for-time pieces are as jaw-dropping as the
you’ve been on the fence about how America needs to
start watching lobbyists and watching the FDA who seems to
let any drug pass though, buy this immediately. The film should
be mandatory viewing for anyone with a disease. It may make
you more hesitant to just take what your doctor says as the
final word, and seek a second opinion.
Burzinski’s drama continues, but he’s getting
there. They picked the wrong guy to bully – and that
makes you have hope after watching the filth they’ve
thrown at a pioneer.
