The thing that depresses me the most about this is that the parents were taking their child to the Burzynski clinic, which is possibly the single most offensive affront to the practice of oncology. Worse than peddling useless therapy, Burzynski offers up false hope to a group of people who cling to whatever remnants of hope they can find, and offers it up for considerable personal profit.


What ever happened to the FDA? They used to squash quacks, now it seems they sit back and let people sell any kind of snake oil.
