Get this from Orac (a.k.a. DH Gorski) at Respectful Insolence. Here’s a cutter/researcher who makes a living from cancer. A respectable number of research papers in chemotherapy and radiation bear his name and he’s a surgeon. He is, in other words, a fully vested member in the multi-billion dollar cancer treatment industry. If there’s a big breakthrough cure for cancer that consists of a $2 teaspoonful of a common chemical in a glass of water the good Doctor Gorski becomes like unto a horse drawn carriage maker when Ford started mass producing automobiles. He’ll be reduced to lancing boils for a living.
He’s wasting what seems an inordinate amount of time campaigning against DCA. He even dedicates a blog entry to ME of all people. Good lord, with all the reporting from big reliable sources you’d think he has bigger fish to fry:
Medical News Today
Top Cancer News
and many others.
Yet Gorski has been consumed with pooh-poohing this potential wonder-drug on his blog writing many thousands of words about it in 5 (and counting) separate entries (titles paraphrased):
I’m not a Pharma Shill
Down with Blatant Promotion of Potentially Cheap Cures
I’m Not Over Reacting
Last Words (Yeah, Right)
More Last Words (DaveScot gets my big Cluestick)
What’s up with that?
