June 2, 1974 Laetrile Meeting with Top Leaders (Minutes)

On June 2, 1974 a meeting was held at The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) headquarters. The meeting’s purpose was to discuss conducting human clinical trials using Laetrile or similar “cyanide-releasing” substances based on the overwhelmingly positive lab studies conducted by Sloan-Kettering’s Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura.

These minutes were obtained via a “Freedom of Information Act” request.

After all attempts to get the attention of  mainstream journalists using these leaked documents, Ralph W. Moss, PhD packaged the documents up and sent them anonymously to “The Committee For Freedom Of Choice In Cancer Therapy” – which continued to distribute them in an attempt to alert the American public of this cover-up.

1977 Second Opinion Special Report: Laetrile At Sloan-Kettering

This 48-page document was written in the summer of 1977 by Ralph W. Moss, PhD and other anonymous rank-in-file employees of Sloan-Kettering. This report was written in response to the alleged “negative” findings of Sloan-Kettering’s Laetrile studies from 1973-1977. This document was also given to all in attendance of the November 1977 press conference held by Second Opinion.

November 22, 1977 Letter to Second Opinion from Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura

While Ralph W. Moss, PhD was still an anonymous participant in Second Opinion, he sent his evaluation of Sloan-Kettering’s papers on their Laetrile studies (Special Report on Laetrile) to Dr. Sugiura, who was the lead scientist conducting the studies. This letter is Dr. Sugiura’s response to Ralph’s evaluation of his work and how Sloan-Kettering diabolically manipulated the positive data. The letter is addressed to Alec Pruchnicki, the only public “face” of Second Opinion at this time.

Read the Nov. 22, 1977 letter to Second Opinion from Dr. Sugiura

July 30, 1979 letter from Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura

Shortly after the release of this documentary, the film’s director was contacted by a man named John Pittman Hey, who had written to Dr. Sugiura regarding the laetrile cover-up back in 1979—and Dr. Sugiura responded. This is a very special and rare letter, and Mr. Hey has given us permission to post it here. It’s incredible how focused Dr. Sugiura was even at this late age – and how he steadfastly stood behind the results he found while testing Laetrile at Sloan-Kettering. It also shows what kind of man Dr. Sugiura was to write a handwritten 4-page letter to a total stranger. He wrote this letter 3 months before his death.

October 24, 1979 Letter to Ralph W. Moss, PhD from Linus Pauling

After Ralph was fired for exposing the Laetrile cover-up at Sloan-Kettering, he wrote a book about his experience called The Cancer Rebellion: Hope and Betrayal, that was to eventually become The Cancer Industry. Linus Pauling had some very strong words towards “The War On Cancer”.

1971 Congressional Testimony from the NCI’s Dr. Dean Burk

*This document is not included in Second Opinion, but it gives some insight to the political climate around Laetrile when the War On Cancer was first enacted. This is congressional testimony by Dr. Dean Burk, the head of the National Cancer Institute’s Cytochemistry Sector, with Congressman Symington.

About the film:

In the compelling follow-up to the internationally award-winning documentary, Burzynski, the Movie; Burzynski: Cancer is Serious Business, Part II explores the current status of Antineoplastons’ clinical testing sanctioned by the United States Food & Drug Administration—and features a modern story of the struggling journeys of cancer patients being treated today at the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas.

For most patients undergoing Burzynski’s treatment, their advanced cancer itself runs secondary to the constant barrage of skepticism coming not only from their local oncologists, but also from friends and family who feel their loved ones are making suspect treatment decisions—even though mainstream oncology has already left many for dead.

As the story unfolds, you will observe a real-time change of hearts and minds from many of these doctors and families. Unlike the first documentary, Part II showcases interviews with board-certified oncologists, surgeons and neurosurgeons, who witnessed patients leave their care, soon to return in great health after opting for the Burzynski Clinic.

Since the mapping of the Cancer Genome, Burzynski has pioneered an expansion of his therapy which he calls, “Personalized Gene-Targeted Cancer Therapy”, where each patient’s Genomic Cancer Atlas is mapped and a treatment regimen is personally tailored for each individual patient—vs. the conveyor belt, “one-size-fits-all” approach that current oncology adheres to.

Due to the slow-moving, bureaucratic obstacles enforced on Antineoplastons by America’s FDA, this new expanded “personalized gene-targeted” direction has allowed more patients (who are denied access to Antineoplastons) to benefit from Burzynski’s practice in ways never before thought possible. And yet, still with similar resistance and controversy endured by Burzynski’s Antineoplaston therapy.

The film also takes you to Kurume University in Fukuoka, Japan—where independently designed studies of Antineoplastons have been underway for 27 years—without Dr. Burzynski’s (the inventor’s) involvement or supervision. Learn how this team of Japanese pathologists, oncologists and surgeons have studied these anti-cancer co mpounds using their own methodologies—resulting in the first ever independently-run randomized controlled clinical trials.

“After twenty-seven years of independently testing Antineoplastons—including randomized clinical trials, we found that Dr. Burzynski was right. It’s obviously not anecdotal anymore.”
– Hideaki Tsuda, MD – 2013, Kurume Medical University, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan

You will be placed into the turbulent journey of how the industry utilizes its now usurped regulatory agency to both block Antineoplastons’ Phase 3 clinical trial process—and orchestrate a group of “information hit men” (also known as an “Astroturf Campaign”) to pollute all channels of public information in an effort to confuse the public over the truth behind Antineoplastons. This international Astroturf group also engages in the intimidation and harassment of prospective and current terminal cancer patients under Dr. Burzynski’s care.

However, most notable of all—are the earth-shattering events that occurred upon the final days of production of this film—you’ll be left speechless, yet with so much to say, when you witness the story and shocking conclusion to Burzynski: Cancer Is Serious Business, Part II.

“I can’t imagine a world where other people will not have the privilege that I have had—the privilege to have their life saved by a new technology that can cure cancer—it’s terrifying.”

– Laura Hymas – 2013, Glioblastoma Grade IV brain cancer patient, after experiencing a complete remission under Antineoplaston therapy.

Eric Merola interviews former National Cancer Institute Scientist Dr. Li-Chuan Chen (VIDEO)

Eric Merola interviews former National Cancer Institute Scientist Dr. Li-Chuan Chen

Dr. Chen, formerly of the National Cancer Institute talks candidly about his work on Antineoplastons at the NCI, and his idea of our society needing a 2-party medical system for any real progress to be made in the War On Cancer.

The National Cancer Institute begins to come clean on Antineoplastons


With the exception of the NCI rigging their own Antineoplaston (ANP) clinical trials in the 1990’s, the are finally beginning to tell the truth about Antineoplastons.

Why is this so significant?

Some of the most common arguments in opposition to Antineoplaston research is:

1. The scientific community doesn’t find the medical journals that ANP research is published in to be of a high enough “impact factor”. 

This is no longer a valid argument, as no American Cancer Institution could have a higher impact factor than The National Cancer Institute Itself. If these manuscripts that are cited within the National Cancer Institute’s own public web page are good enough for The National Cancer Institute, then they are now good enough for anyone—the world over.

2. No one has ever independently reproduced the ANP results that Burzynski has had.

This is no longer a valid argument as Japan has been independently reproducing these results for nearly 30 years, and the NCI is now acknowledging this on their web page.

Overall, two of the three largest arguments that the “Cancer Establishment” has claimed to marginalize Antineoplastons and Burzynski, have just been eliminated.

The NCI also clearly states the “non-toxic” nature of ANP.

We encourage you to read this updated web page for yourself—but the most telling portion of their own web page, is where they cite one of Burzynski’s own peer-reviewed manuscripts as:

“A phase II study also conducted by the developer and his associates at his clinic reported on 12 patients with recurrent and diffuse intrinsic brain stem glioma. Of the ten patients who were evaluable, two achieved complete tumor response, three had partial tumor response, three had stable disease, and two had progressive disease. Patients ranged in age from 4 to 29 years.”

A brainstem glioma has never been cured in medical history. The NCI just acknowledged and advertised two of those cures—also citing that 10 of the 12 brainstem glioma patients had a “positive response” to ANP therapy.

The NCI showed the courage to publish the dosage levels and everything!

As for their own clinical trials they conducted in the 1990’s where they did not give the patients the proper dosage—they at least had the decency to admit that Burzynski felt their trials were not properly run. Which would make sense to anyone paying attention when you witness the contrast between their own ANP studies and those of Burzynski and the Japanese. Getting the NCI to admit they intentionally rigged a clinical trial to fail will never happen—but at least they are now coming clean in regards to their own trials being questioned and the truth behind this therapy as a whole.

Read the updated NCI page for yourself, by clicking HERE.
If the above link doesn’t work, try copying and pasting the link below:

From this day forward, it will be difficult for any honest oncologist, or medical doctor, when presented with this information provided by the National Cancer Institute to be able to provide much of a valid argument claiming “there is no evidence that ANP has ever shown any efficacy against cancer.”

(Of course the American Cancer Society has yet to update their page since 2008—but we shouldn’t expect them to since they are a privately owned and operated entity, not a government sanctioned entity.)

The only final argument to eliminate against ANP is the constant mention of the necessary independently run “randomized clinical trials”—where two groups of patients with the exact same diagnosis are randomly selected. One group gets “standard of care” (chemo/rad) and the other group gets “the new experimental therapy” (plus chemo/rad).

We do not want to give too much away before the release of the “Chapter 2” documentary—but an “independently run, randomized clinical trial” has now been completed in a country outside of the USA. The manuscript is being prepared now for publication. The “experimental group” had double the cure rate than the “standard of care alone group”. Both groups also received “standard chemotherapy”.


For more information about the harrowing story of the inventor of Antineoplastons, Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, there are two documentaries available called “Burzynski, the Movie” (released in 2010) and “Burzynski: Cancer Is Serious Business, Part II” released in 2013. Both are available on iTunes, Amazon On Demand, DVD, and many other outlets. This documentary series was directed by Eric Merola.

Brain cancer cured, weddings to follow – thanks to Antineoplastons!

(Republished from the September 22, 2013 Burzynski Movie subscriber emails I received – from Eric Merola)

Three former patients of Dr. Burzynski’s Antineoplaston (ANP) therapy are having weddings this year.



 Laura Hymas’ story was covered in great extent in Burzynski: Cancer Is Serious Business, Part II.
She was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Grade IV brian tumor on Christmas Eve in 2010.
After surgery failed her, and after being forced to take Temodar (chemotherapy) to qualify
to enter a clinical trial using Antineoplastons (ANP)—she started ANP in 2011, and
experienced a complete remission less than a year later. Also included in the documentary
is an interview with her neurosurgeon who performed her biopsy, as well as an audio
recording of her oncologist refusing to participate if she choose ANP over conventional therapy—
while telling Laura in the same breath that she will not survive.


This October, Laura and Ben will be married in their hometown in England.
I will be attending their wedding and will share updates and photos from their wedding in late October.


 Laura, Ben and Jacob Hymas



Dustin Kunnari was diagnosed with a deadly medulloblastoma brain tumor in 1994 at only 3 years old.
Dustin’s parents refused to subject him to the poor outcome and toxic nature of radiation and
chemotherapy and instead decided to have Dustin treated with Antineoplastons (ANP).


 Dustin and his parents were featured in “Burzynski, the Movie” (Part 1), where the Kunnari family
was seen begging the FDA in front of Congress to allow Dustin to continue his life-saving therapy.


 See a recent news segment with the Kunnari family (click here).


The Kunnari family won their battle with the FDA, and Dustin soon won his battle against his
once-deadly medullablastoma brain tumor.


Watch the clip of Dustin and his mother Mariann from the 1996 hearings, below:

On August 17, 2013—Dustin Kunnari was married to the lovely Calah Hester.
Below are photos of Dustin’s wedding with Dr. Burzynski in attendance!

At age 22 Kendra Gilbert was diagnosed with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma brain tumor.
In 2007, after all conventional therapy failed her, she began Antineoplaston therapy.
Kendra completed Antineoplaston therapy in 2009.

As of right now (September 2013) Kendra has been cancer-free for 5 years.
She will be married later this year.


Read a 2011 news article about Kendra.


(Kendra is pictured on the far right)






While the future of Antineoplastons still appears to be uncertain due to recent FDA obstruction
(if you haven’t seen “Burzynski: Part II”, you need to—to understand this FDA action)
the lives saved using Antineoplastons still continue to grace the Earth.
