Truth or Lies?
3 December 2011 | by robertmstanleySee all my reviews

There is an important message....

This movies goes beyond the idea that there is a new "miracle" cancer treatment.

It is about truth.

Rather then simply reading reviews, positive or negative, I think this movie warrants your own judgment and critical thinking.

It reveals something important...

The idea that maybe, just maybe, the FDA and government does not have our back. Maybe the incentive for the FDA is to support those who support them.

I would ask you to watch the movie and decide for yourself.

If his treatment works or not, is not important to me. What is important is the obvious witch hunt that is happening here.

Federally funded and well documented witch hunt...

You and I are paying for this man to be put out of business. I am not sure I support that. I would like to see his treatment receive the proper funding and testing it deserves.

Cancer is big business and healthy people aren't profitable, that is a fact.

Anyway, this movie was a real eye-opener for me. Particularly since so many people in my family have died from cancer. Some of them waaayy too young.

I asked myself why.

I think I know. Do you?
