I’ve read quite a lot on the subject and also developed my own opinion. As much as I respect other people’s views, I strongly believe that the ‘conventional medicine’ is not the answer, as it only treats the symptoms, not the causes. I do appreciate that it is difficult to establish a single factor that contributed to an illness, including cancer, however not exploring or even considering different options is a very narrow minded approach which may be seen as not really caring.
People who are trying to present some different views on the subject are perceived as arrogant by vast majority, especially medical professionals. It is important not to get intimidated and be quite persistent. It will be more difficult when we are actually presented with so called ‘life-death’ situation, therefore it is advisable to get educated beforehand. This article What Is Cancer? is quite good and not too long, and may be a good starting point.
There are couple of medical doctors who are trying different methods, despite of all the obstacles. One of them is Dr Stanislaw Burzynski who dedicated his life to finding a cure for brain tumors using antineoplastons. His research is covered by this documentary called ‘Cancer is Serious Business’. The title says it all…
This year the Burzynski Clinic is planning to release the second part of the movie, documenting the latest progress at ‘Burzynski Documentary Film Series’.
