For those of you who don’t know about him, Stanislaw Burzynski has been treating advanced cancer patients since the late 1970s with a novel peptide compound he discovered (and later synthesized). In the last dozen or so years he has been on the cutting edge of multi-agent targeted gene therapy in what is called personalized cancer treatment. Along the way, he has run into a quantum level more trouble with governments and other institutions than any other maverick health care practitioner in the world. Stan and his patients who demanded access to his non-FDA approved treatment originated the right to try/expanded access to investigational treatments back in the mid-90s, first with expanded compassionate use under the Clinton Administration, ultimately leading to the right to try movement which is now federal law and the law of most states. (Full disclosure for those of you who don’t know, I was involved in many of these battles for a few decades, as detailed in Chapter 2 of Galileo’s Lawyer.)
Forty five years later, he’s still treating advanced cancer patients and still looking for funding to do the phase 3 clinical trials (for DIPG a very nasty and fatal childhood cancer).
Documentarian Eric Merola has done a series of movies and interviews with Stan starting ten years ago. The first one won some awards but was hated by the mainstream cancer establishment.
Recently, Eric has put together a series of interviews with Stan. Here is a link to Stan’s explanation of his theory of cancer been a genetic disease and how it should be treated and why it’s so tough to treat.
In this Covid crazy world we live in, we should remember that there are other important issues and battles to be fought.
Stan’s wife, Barbara, who co-founded the Burzynski enterprise (a clinic and a drug manufacturing facility) died a few weeks ago of Covid. She was 80 and unvaccinated. The disease attacked her lungs and she passed within two weeks. Stan went through some very tough times fighting the federal and state governments. Barbara was his most vociferous supporter and kept him on track with grace and inner strength.
I am a long-time health freedom advocate who is active in the vaccine mandate field. But I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t given me pause to think, especially as we now pass the 700k death number (for those who accept this or any statistics from the government). Health freedom has a cost.
There are a number of YouTube interviews in Eric’s series about Dr. Burzynski. You will find them interesting and aligned with how you think about things. Stan is a unique voice in the cancer field, and someone who will be viewed by history as a pivotal part of the health freedom movement. So check them out.
