The Burzynski legal threats: one year on

This time last year, following some spectacularly bad ‘web optimization’ work by pseudo-lawyer Marc Stephens, the Burzynski Clinic issued a press release. Marc’s misguided and heavy handed attempts to silence online criticism had resulted in the publication of over a hundred articles in six days.

The press release said that Marc’s actions were not appropriate and that he no longer had a professional relationship with the clinic. However, they maintained that UK bloggers had provided ‘inaccurate factual information’ and would be contacted by attorneys. Continue reading

Denton’s dirty tricks campaign continues

UPDATE 18/01/13: It appears that Denton has been paying people to sign a petition against me and Jo Brodie. A new Twitter account (@FightRacism2) has also been set up to promote this petition and to spread malicious untruths about us. For further details, see Jo’s Storify post hereThe RationalWiki entry for Errol Denton is also being kept updated with recent developments and new, relevant links.

Since my last post on Errol Denton, it was beginning to look like he had perhaps had second thoughts about his hateful, unfounded smear campaign.

There is no current petition against me and Jo Brodie. The apparently anti-racist Facebook group against us has disappeared. The photographs of Jo have gone from Errol’s ‘Black Microscopist’ page. And he hasn’t written a blogpost against us since the 18th of November.

He has suggested we should all be ‘eliminating’ 5ft of faeces a day (if not, you’d better get a colonic!), he’s conjured up images of gorillas blowing their noses and he has claimed that the bacteria (yes, bacteria) that cause colds live in the colon. Perhaps it isn’t coughs and sneezes that spread diseases, but farting. Continue reading

Live blood quack Errol Denton seems to think Jo Brodie and I are being unfair to him. He claims we’ve been cyber bullying him for two years, purely because of the colour of his skin. We are lower than a cockroach’s belly, apparently.

Of course, Errol hasn’t substantiated any of these claims. Like many of the claims on his sites, they are totally without foundation. Continue reading

Totnes Cancer Conference: shaping up for a shambles

If the March Totnes Cancer Care Conference was a farce, then the November one looks set to be a shambles.

Keen to avoid the problems that blighted the last conference, organiser Dr Stephen Hopwood has been careful to point out that the conference will not discuss treating people for cancer, but treating people with cancer. This seems to me to be a blatant and cynical way of sidestepping the Cancer Act.
