    Default Antineoplastons

    A topic like this reinforces how little I know. How does on weight the evidence and come to a decision on this?

    Besides, it has been a while since the science sections has seen controversy.

    Here is the national cancer institutes take, saying essentially no effects:

    This guys Saul Green certainly think Burzynski is a quack/fraud:

    Here is Burzynski's own website:

    There is a movie made about the guy (if you like conspiracy theories, you'll eat this up):

    What I see for it is that it's not a cure for cancer but a tool that allows someones own body to deal with the cancer itself. And depending on the gene formula causing the cancer, it could cure, but it might also not be enough.

    However, since the treatment is so low-risk, I don't understand how it's not more mainstream after all this time. If I had cancer I would definately look into this myself, probably not as an alternative to normal treatments (unless those treatments would be too severe to survive anyway), but definately as an addition.

    Fluffywolf, did you watch the movie?

    I am a little surprised that people haven't heard of this... whether or not they think it is real.
