Mr. Elias discussed his book The Burzynski Breakthrough: The Most Promising Cancer Treatment -- and the Government’s Campaign to Squelch It, published by Lexicos. Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski has claimed to have discovered a treatment for cancer. It has, however, not been approved by the Federal Drug Administration, which has taken the doctor to court for insurance fraud and shipping his treatment across state lines. Dr. Burzynski was acquitted of all charges. The author says that the FDA is prejudiced against the small entrepreneur, and protects the interests of the large pharmaceutical companies. After his remarks he answered questions from the audience.
