What Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski doesn’t want you to know about antineoplastons: This article is concerned with Dr Burzynski and his antineoplaston (a term that truly waddles and quacks) therapy. What is confusing is that the therapy may have some actual benefit. But what isn’t up for debate is the matter of his methods. The author summarises thus:
‘As much as I hate to admit it, there is a modicum of science here. It’s just that, in Dr. Burzysnki’s hands, unfortunately it’s incredibly sloppy science, Trials are not designed so that they can ever answer the question of whether the real drug, namely sodium phenylbutyrate, is effective, either alone in combination, against cancer, and, if it is, against which cancers. Rather, they appear custom-designed so that Dr. Burzynski can keep administering antineoplastons (which, remember, are nothing more than the metabolic breakdown products of sodium phenylbutyrate) to patients. It’s also incredibly unethical science in that Dr. Burzynski is requiring patients to pay huge amounts of money out-of-pocket for unvalidated combinations of targeted therapies thrown together with (these days, at least) sodium phenylbutyrate and sold as “personalized gene-targeted cancer therapy.” ‘
More, please! A victim of cancer quack Robert O. Young wins a $105 million settlement : “Young claimed that over 300 patients had come to his ranch with cancer and left without it, that he had a high success rate with stage IV metastatic cancer. He also compared himself to Jesus.”
Universal Medicine follower’s daughter hopes jury verdict stops ‘dangerous cult’ recruitment: If you want to know how greedy alternative health scammers can be, consider ways that the Cult of “Universal Medicine” controlled their victim, dying of cancer, so that they could get her money. They convinced her to avoid music except their own. They convinced this book lover to dump all her literature, except theirs. They even told her that she would “Damage her kidney energy in the next life” if she let her children have their inheritance.
Some claims from UM’s site: “About Serge Benhayon In early to mid 1999, Serge Benhayon found himself under the impress of a series of unfoldments that led to a re-connection, or, ‘union of old’. As a result, he initiated these impresses via the expression of Esoteric Healing using the forum of his sessions to present the teachings that not long after became his vast collection and volume of service to many thousands. Up and until the re-connection occurred, dedication, care and discipline had already been the hallmark of his then and now former professional career. Once the ‘re-connection’ or ‘re-union’ recommenced, Serge was able to impress his way with a deeper if not more whole and complete Soul-full impulse, thus inaugurating Universal Medicine as his main unit of service. Since then (late 1999), and under the Livingness of his fiery impulse, Serge has constantly and consistently been living the fullness of the esoteric life in dedicated service to and for all – equally. This has resulted in the many projects and instigations, too many to here mention.
That said, one such area of service worth mentioning is the now available information about the causes of illness and disease having their roots in a certain type of energy, and more specifically, that illness and disease arise from our human emotions, which in-turn come from our undealt-with issues and the choices we make as a result. As he initiated and has been saying since 1999 – “We need to arrest the offending energy that is causing the behaviour that then brings the imbalance, the self-abuse and eventually the ill condition that affects and or takes over the body and or mind. We ought not to ignore the principal energetic factor in a world where it can irrefutably be said that ‘everything is energy’. And thus, if there is a wrong, an ill or a woe of any kind, look no further than its energetic cause, that is, it is there or happening because a certain energy has made it happen or is causing it to happen.”
It is clear that Serge’s teachings are collectively unique and yet, profoundly practical and rather easy to grasp whilst delivering astonishing and vast knowledge, revelations and insights that have been proven to be very accurate, an accuracy that evolves to be true even in the face of some quarters of science claiming the opposite or making out that such teachings are obscure if not untenable. The basis of such teachings does not just come from one who is philosophical by way of being or that he lives in full a Soul-full esoteric life, but that of experience born and lived in and by very busy and long clinic hours. “Getting in there and, getting his hands dirty”, so to speak, gives Serge a very real and up-to-the-minute view and wide reaching perspective of what is happening in our society everywhere. This wider scope includes his extensive clinic hours with clients from all over Australia and from his in-depth experience of teaching and treating on the European continent. And hence, he is not a teacher who is without real and tangible experience.”

Preventing muscle loss as we age: “Sarcopenia is one of the most important causes of functional decline and loss of independence in older adults”
Abused Health Concept
Alkaline water surges despite lack of evidence: The first thing you need to know that humans control their body pH just by breathing. To claim that one can adjust their pH via food or drink without drugs is ridiculous. Yet more and more sCAM health promoters are pushing and selling pH adjust water and treatments. They claim to boost health, cure or prevent disease, and even to conquer cancer. Such claims can and do result in worse outcomes for those who need real medicine. Remember that pH treatments are completely implausible, and when someone start to promote them, mark them in your mind as either a scam artist or a victim.
Great moments in Health and Science
The history of germ theory: The existence of microorganisms was known 200 years before the germ theory of disease garnered significant popularity. The presence of germs in tissue samples from certain diseases had previously been thought to be a symptom of the disease, not the cause.
