It’s high time I jumped on the Burzynski bandwagon. The reason I didn’t do so earlier is that I was aware of a bizarre correspondence taking place between award-winning grassroots skeptic, Rhys Morgan, and one Marc Stephens, who claimed — truthfully, as it turns out — to be representing Stanislaw Burzynski. I was waiting for Rhys to tell the story publicly and now he has.
My first thought, on hearing that Rhys had received a threat of legal action, was that as many bloggers as possible should re-publish the piece by Rhys that Stephens objected to. As it happens, in the 25 days since Stephens sent his first extraordinary email to Rhys, a whole bunch of other blogs about Burzynski have appeared, not re-publishing Rhys’ piece but telling it their own way. Josephine Jones has a list of them — there were 62 at the last count!
I’ve only read a fraction of them and don’t have anything to add. As it will be obvious to anyone who reads any of Stephens’ missives, I don’t even need to point out that Stephens comes across as an ignoramus, a bully and a nutcase and that in employing him as some sort of minder to threaten anyone who writes the unpalatable truth about him, Stanislaw isn’t doing himself any favours.
A word from Rhys:
So in order to spread the word, I need your help. I would really appreciate it if you could do the following two things:
Tweet about the Burzynski clinic. You could either write your own tweet or you could retweet my suggested tweet: RT @rhysmorgan Patients need to know the whole truth about Burzynski’s cancer treatment claims: http://rhysmorgan.co/2011/08/the-burzynski-clinic/
OR you could retweet this: RT @rhysmorgan Dr Burzynski does not want you to know the whole truth about his cancer treatments, which is why he tried to sue me http://rhysmorgan.co/2011/11/threats-from-the-burzynski-clinic
Add a link to this blog from your website so that it will increase the PageRank for this blog so that when patients search for Burzynski, they discover this blog as well as Dr Burzynski’s propaganda. This way, they can discover the whole truth and determine for themselves whether it’s worth investing in his treatment.
