Submission + - Alternative medice attemps to chill critics->

Asmodae writes: Taking a page from Babs is one Stanislaw Burzynski. He runs an alternative cancer treatment called "antineoplaston therapy" and charges thousands of dollars for the privilege. From the article: Dr. Steve Novella, who certainly is an expert both in medicine and the misuses thereof, has some choice words about Burzynski and his ideas. So does David Calquhoun, a British pharmacologist. So does — at great length and detail — Dr. David Gorski, and so does the website Quackometer (and again here as well) and so does the Cancer Research UK Science blog.

This well debunked therapy has been blogged about by a high-schooler named Rhys Morgan, in a critical fashion and has received letters threatening to sue from Burzynski's clinic. As have a few other critics.
