Texas Medical Board Is Attempting To Shut Down Ground Breaking Cancer Treatment

File under "No good deed goes unpunished".

What a shame that someone who can help, and has helped, cancer patients is being relentlessly attacked by the cancer establishment and the FDA. Seems they would just rather have people die.

And yet, this ground breaking gene targeted cancer therapy is the wave of the future. Isn't it immoral to have people die when that treatment is available now?

I hope that the Texas Medical Board reconsiders what appears to be a terrible and unwarranted persecution of a doctor who has done much to help people and who has pioneered cancer treatment by thinking out of the box.

OK - yeah - so there are people who claim this guy is a quack.
You can Google information about this guy (and anyone else for that matter) for yourself.
Bottomline - Some doctors are good and others aren't. Some doctors help some people and fail for others.
I am not particularly endorsing this guy other than to say that if he has helped some people and if he has pioneered some new medical techniques then that is a good thing.
The best thing for anyone seeking any type of treatment is to do your own research and homework.

Why even have a comment section if you won't print the comments?

100% of these so-called cancer centers/cures/clinics have turned out to be total quacks. This guy is just another quack. Spending one penney or one minute on these quack cures is money and time not spent on finding an actual cure. I understand the fear and grasping at straws a cancer patient feels (I am a cancer survivor). But these quacks prey on these fears to steal money from these poor people.

You know what "anonymous"? One guys "quack" is another guys savior.

You are a cancer survivor - congratulations - glad you found a treatment that works for you - sorry that you deny other people the same privilege.

But, whatever.

Thank you for printing my comment.
It is not my intent to just be contentious. I have a real concern that people are tricked into trying useless "treatments" while the clock ticks away and their chance of successful treatment decreases. Steve Jobs did this. He had a treatable cancer and decided to use "voodoo" to treat it. By the time he woke up to the truth it was too late. He was able to extend the inevitable but not cure his cancer. What a shame.

Anonymous - First of all - you don't know first hand what Steve Jobs did or did not do to treat his cancer... so don't presume he tried "voodoo" anything. He had enough money to obtain the best medical treatments conventional and unconventional, and the sad fact is that he died despite it all. Perhaps his biggest mistake was taking conventional chemo that stripped him of his immune abilities.
Anyway, I have known plenty of people in my life who were cured by so-called "voodoo" medicine.

I have a real concern that people go around bashing what they consider to be unconventional therapies and even worse try to stop people from accessing them.

You know many years ago people thought blood letting was a tremendous idea, and those who probably stayed away from it and sought other methods were considered crazy folk seeking voodoo medicine. Think about what advances have been made BECAUSE people sought other treatments other than conventional therapies that did not work.

I have seen what some "conventional/traditional" medicine has done to people. It ain't pretty either.

I think we must allow people to rely on their own intelligence and understanding of their own bodies; the medical establishment are not gods either.

The difference between science based medicine and superstition based medicine is simply that the best minds and knowledge go into scinece based treatments while the superstition based treatments are typically the fruit of devious minds or pure superstition of ancient peoples. Everytime any of the superstition based treatments are investigated they are found to be of no value what so ever.

Jobs himself said that his mistake was in pursuing faith based medical treatments by quacks and numerous esteemed experts have said his cancer was treatable by conventional medicine if prompt action was taken.

You are correct when you say many people die from cancer and science based medical treatment does not prevent that or cure them. Sadly most cancers are death sentences but more importantly some are not and if a person with cancer chooses superstition based medical treatment then these treatable cancer become worse until they are untreatable.

Anonymous - To be honest you have a real nerve to talk about alternate therapies - some of which are very old and very helpful to many people (which has been documented) - as being "superstition".

Who the heck are you to determine what works and what does not work for everyone? Should we abandon certain treatments because they do not match your limited notion of efficacy? As far as I am concerned you hold a very arrogant position.

I have known people who have fought illness and disease using what you might call superstition-based medicine.

I don't know why you care so much about what people choose for themselves anyway.

As far as I am concerned, there are plenty of quacks working in the realm of traditional medicine that I would not let near my cat if he were ill.

You talk about Steve Jobs as if you know what his personal situation was... you don't ... except for what you read in the news. You don't know what he tried or didn't try and even if you go by what the tabloids say, perhaps it was a round of chemo that did him in as it decimated his immune system. But whatever. He's dead. The world goes on... and there are many people out their winning battles with their diseases by using alternate therapies. I don't discount those people and I am glad they have a choice.
