Storyline

The Film tells the grim tale of the half century War on Cancer and focuses on the character of Thomas Navarro. In 1999, the four year old boy was diagnosed with brain cancer and thrust into the system of Surgery, Chemo and Radiation and not allowed to be treated with a proven method by Texas Doctor Stanislaw Burzynski. The war between the Navarro Family and the FDA is perhaps this country's greatest evidence as to why there should be medical freedom and how since the War on Cancer began in 1971, the war is still failing in 2009.

A Must-See Documentary on Cancer
12 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

This documentary had an average rating of 4.6 at the time of writing. I can only surmise this low score is attributable to individuals with the same narrow-minded calibre of the cancer organisations exposed.

Cancer is a multi-billion dollar industry. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy rarely work, and if they do, quality of living thereafter is dubious. With so many cancer-related organisations and pharmaceutical companies riding the financial wave of ineffective and costly cancer treatment, there's no incentive to find a cure. So when one doctor makes a significant breakthrough in cancer treatment, he is harassed and lampooned by the conspiratorial forces of the cancer cash cow.

This documentary examines three scenarios: the evolution of the cancer industry through ineffective and toxic chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and the corruption this spawned; the successful therapy developed by Dr Burzynski and the various attempts to discredit him; and the plight of the Navarro family, whose four-year-old son is diagnosed with a brain cancer and is forced to undertake treatment benefiting the cancer organisations only.

Cancer is likely to affect us all, directly or indirectly. This documentary sheds light on the way we've been conditioned to accept the traditional flawed methods of cancer treatment as necessary, and a system that is financially motivated to perpetuate this myth. It is compelling viewing and will change your view towards a ubiquitous disease we usually don't think about until it affects us.
