DaveScot, the anti-science slug from UncommonDescent, is doing an experiment: he’s got a friend who is taking dichloroacetate (DCA) to treat his cancer.
The first line in Myers post is a lie. I don’t even know anyone who has cancer let alone is taking DCA to treat it. This just goes to show you can’t trust anything written by PZ Myers.
Filed under “Lies and the lying liars who tell them”.
Update: I don’t really feel like debating this with anyone anymore. The fact of the matter is that DCA is not a controlled substance and nothing is going to stop people in vast numbers, beginning real soon now, from trying to save their own lives with it. Countless thousands of people are walking around with untreatable cancers that will kill them long before “proper” phase II and phase III trials can take place. It is absolutely no one’s business but theirs what they choose to do about it. If you don’t like that, too bad. EFSAD.
