It seems that Dr Stanislaw Burzynski isn’t coming to Britain after all.
He was booked to speak in October this year at the highly dubious Cambridge Institute of Complementary Health Cancer Convention, due to be hosted at the National Motorcycle Museum Conference Centre in Birmingham.
A statement on the Institute’s website reveals that it is not to be. Apparently,
One of the reasons he feels unable to come is so that we won’t be exposed to the sort of attacks that he has suffered.
Details of such ‘attacks’ are not revealed. The statement continues:
What a great shame that there are people out there who seem to be hell bent on preventing open and honest debate, but instead wish to promulgate stories that are untrue and opinions based on ignorance or dark propaganda.
I can’t think of a single occasion where a critic of the Burzynski Clinic has tried to stifle honest debate. So I decided to ask the Cambridge Institute of Complementary Health to explain themselves:
I am a British blogger who has reported on Dr Burzynski and his clinic and has also collated blogs and newspaper articles covering a wide range of aspects of Dr Burzynski’s work. I believe that I and other critics have reported honestly and openly. I can’t think of a single example of a critic of the clinic ever attempting to prevent honest debate. On the other hand, there are several examples of supporters of the clinic doing just that.
I therefore respectfully ask that you explain the following paragraph (taken from your ‘News’ page in relation to Dr Burzynski):
“What a great shame that there are people out there who seem to be hell bent on preventing open and honest debate, but instead wish to promulgate stories that are untrue and opinions based on ignorance or dark propaganda.”
I believe that these statements are untrue and are written in a bid to damage the reputation of critics and – ironically – to stifle debate.
I look forward to your reply,
I will of course update this page if a reply is forthcoming.
