A a 17-year-old high school student fighting a quack
Stanislaw Burzynski claims he has a method for treating cancer. He calls it antineoplaston therapy. However, according to the National Cancer Institute, “No randomized, controlled trials showing the effectiveness of antineoplastons have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.”

Rhys Morgan, a 17-year-old high school student, is fighting this quack. He has been harassed and threathened to be sued. He decided to publish the letters he has received so far in his battle against this quack.

Skeptical blogosphere is all over this one. Burzynski can't do much.

I agree. If his science is sound, then he needs to publish his findings and run the gauntlet.

He actually has, but they're bad studies.

You don't charge money if you think you have a valid concept like that. If your evidence holds up, you hold proper trials.

Very true.

We shall see what becomes of this if trial is brought against him.
