#108 – The Burzynski Clinic

The League of Nerds

 

In the state of Texas a clinic offers what some might call a miracle cure for cancer. The man behind this clinic is Dr Burzynski who claims to have discovered an underlying physiological difference between cancer patients and healthy people. Using quite frankly backward logic he has been opening ‘clinical trials’ using molecules he identified. The problem… There seems to be no clear scientific proof that these molecules work while evidence they harm. His clinic also charges patient (in the region of thousands of dollars) to be entered into these trials, something which is almost unheard of. The practices of the Burzynski clinic have raised many eyebrows in the scientific and medical community. To talk about the clinic Myles and James are joined by Ross from Brisbane skeptics
