wee wee woo waa and the heart string tug jobs

We all like a bit of piss play now and then, nothing like a golden shower to relieve the stresses of the day but Stansislaw Burzynski is really taking the piss with his Antineoplastons cancer "cure" and the threatening responses to bloggers that question the efficacy of the "treatment", sorry clinical trails

From what I can gather Antineoplastons are just peptides that Stanislaw derived from piss, human piss, we all have our little quirks and fetishes, still I can't help wonder where the magic golden liquid he uses come from but that's probably just my dirty mind mmm loving that salt rain Stan.
Stanislaws credentials seem to be a bit dubious as well graduating from med school at the ripe old age of 24 and getting a doctorate in biochemistry at 25 from a school that didn't grant Ph.D.'s

Why am I bothered by this dude and his clinic? I read an article in the observer, a heart string twanging account of a young girl with cancer that got my heckles up, phrases like "not available on the NHS" or "not available in the country" stuck in my cerebral throat and stopped my mind from swallowing and digesting, Why are these "cures" and " treatments" not available here or on the NHS? simple answer they don't work and this preying on the weak is just shameful .

"The clinical efficacy of antineoplastons combinations for various diseases have been the subject of many such trials by Burzynski and his associates, but these have not produced any clear evidence of efficacy. Oncologists have described these studies as flawed, with one doctor stating that they are “scientific nonsense”. In particular, independent scientists have been unable to reproduce the positive results reported in Burzynski’s studies."

"The prognosis is complicated. Many of the children with these tumours have a life expectancy of around a year to 18 months. Is it impossible for her to survive? No, as it turns out. Sam and Terri very quickly found out about a pioneering treatment at the Burzynski Clinic in Texas for children with DIPG. The estimated cost is £200,000. It is not available in this country, it is new and there are no guarantees. When you are faced with a decision like that, what can you do? It's like Monopoly money and when we realised we would have to raise this amount, it seemed ridiculous. Especially as there's only a slight chance that the treatment might work."

Now I've seen some steaming piles of filmographic shite in my life and I didn't think I'd see anything as bad and nausea inducing as The Last Unicorn but "Burzynski Movie" is by far the worst thing I've ever seen, If you are going to watch it, strap yourself in for some serious woowaa.

here are some links on the subject

one man on a lonly platform


One case sitting by his side, Two eyes staring cold and silent, Shows fear as he turns to hide

Lyrics from the seminal 1981 synth infused pop tune Fade to grey by the wonderfully sullen Visage. But what has that got to do with anything? I hear you ask, or at least I would hear you ask if you had actually asked that question within earshot of my good self and not sat at work reading my musings instead of doing what you should be doing.

Colloidal Silver is the subject of today's attempt to stop seemingly intelligent people wasting money on woowaa and admittedly the song probably has absolutely nothing to do with Colloidal Silver but I like the song and I know for a fact that people of a certain age will be humming it for the rest of the week and that in my twisted little earworm instigating way makes me happy.

Before I begin I'd just like to point out that silver is a bio-accumulative toxic metal, note the word toxic here basically long-term use of colloidal silver deposits metallic silver under the skin, turning people's skin a gorgeous sexy grey blue ,and this is why I infected your ears with that tune which I'm sure you are all still humming whilst simultaneously cursing me, this is known as argyria .


Argyria is permanent but I'm told the zombie look is so hot right now .

It also accumulates in the internal organs, I may loath fake tan but at least it doesn't turn your kidneys orange , anyway continually exposing the cells of those organs to silver is not a good
idea and it is likely that it actually interferes with the body's normal immune processes.




Claims made by various woowaa websites suggest that Silver is an effective treatment for over 600 various different health problems and that silver is an "essential" nutrient. The truth is silver is treated by the body as a toxic metal, chelated and removed extremely slowly by proteins called metallothioneins.

metallothioneins do a few different things inside our bodies like the transport and detoxification of metal ions, free radical scavenging and immune response but because the removal of silver is so slow it's easy to overload the metallothioneins and because Silver has an affinity to cell membranes, including those of nerve cells, it deposits permanently as silver sulfide turning your skin permanently grey, that's permanently, forever and not going away.
check out http://rosemaryjacobs.com or her blog http://rosemary-jacobs.blogspot.com/

"Silver Can Make You Look Like Me Or Paul Karason, The Blue Man Of Oprah Fame. We have argyria. I’m gray. Paul is blue. What the naturopaths did not know is that silver, the natural element they think is a drug, is a heavy metal toxin which should never be taken internally or put in your eye. It can disfigure you by permanently discolouring your skin (argyria) and eyes (argyrosis). Silver has no known function in the body and does not prevent or cure any illness. It is snake oil! Doctors who learn scientific medicine in school rather than an archaic, pre-scientific, belief-based system like naturopathy have known this for over fifty years. If naturopaths had any knowledge of pharmacology or toxicology, they would have known it too. This isn’t about one or two ignorant naturopaths, one or two bad apples. It is about a whole barrel full. How do I know that? Because naturopaths included silver in their Vermont Naturopathic Formulary, the list of drugs that they are permitted to use! http://rosemary-jacobs.blogspot.com/2010/08/naturopaths-silver_6314.html When I pointed out their mistake, they brushed me off! What does that tell you about their concern for patients? Rosemary Jacobs"














So why do the stupid people still take it? probably because the woowaa sites selling the stuff claim all the science, data, research etc. is false and that it's perfectly safe
http://www.nutrasilver.com/pages/the-argyria-controversy

These companies sure care a lot about......your money and sod all else.

It's classic woowaa take a modicum of truth like "silver can kill bacteria" and take that to a completely illogical conclusion with no evidence at all whatsoever and then make shed loads of dosh from the clinically guiliable by claiming it will cure you of every thing from clumsiness and cancer to stupidity and STDs.
No matter how the silver gets inside you, our bodies treat it in the same way, as a foreign object made from a toxic metal.

When our immune and detoxification system comes across a foreign, non-metabolic metal like silver, it goes into overdrive in its attempt to remove it. Glutathione, the primary detoxifying antioxidant, is utilized in this process. If the person has a chronic illness such as hepatitis C, the glutathione that had been utilized in detoxifying free radical toxins is now siphoned off into silver detoxification. The result is a sudden progression of the disease, the exact opposite of what the silver snake oil woowaa proponents claim.

If you have money to burn on silver why not go to the bank change £20 into 50ps go into town and deposit 1 coin into every charity box you see ,and before you start, yes I do know that British 50 Pence coins are made from an alloy of 75% copper and 25% nickel and don't actually contain silver.

Feel the rain like an English summer
Hear the notes from a distant song
Stepping out from a back shop poster
Wishing life wouldn't be so dull
ahhhhahaha we fade to grey

homeopathetic company in lawsuit over effiacy of Children’s Coldcalm

Even though she was daft enough to buy the stuff in the first place Gina Delarosa has gained a special little place in my heart after filling a Class Action Lawsuit against a company called Boiron because they make a useless, worthless and utterly pointless "medicine" called Childrens Coldcalm"

Actually to call her daft is probably a bit harsh seeing as I don't kno
w her and I understand if you have children you will try anything to ease their suffering. So when she saw the packet proudly claiming to "Relieve the common cold, sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, sinus pain, headaches and sore throats" she must have though great a 1 stop cure for my kids ills.

Odd then that it didn't work as claimed, well no actually it's not as it's basically a sugar pill, Boiron wanted put a stop to this lawsuit.

So what's in Coldcalm then aside from sugar




















This homeopathetic medicine has shit loads in it. Coldcalm lists more active ingredients than my wifes shampoo. So what is all the serious sounding shit that's crammed into every pill…

Allium cepa: Onion. In the homeopathy world of ”like cures like“, onion is the homeopathic cure for runny nose and irritated, watery eyes. Onion is present in a Coldcalm® dose at a concentration of “3C” or 1 part onion to 1,000,000 parts something else. For a liquid homepathic medicine, this “something else” is usually water, alcohol or some inactive ingredient. For the Coldcalm® pellets, the “something else” is likely sucrose and lactose, two sugars listed as this product’s inactive ingredients.

Apis mellifica: Honey bees ferfuxache. The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology stipulates the details of the production of apis mellifica…

"For preparation of Apis mellifica, entire honey bees were first crushed in a grinder and 65% ethanol was then added (1:20, w/v)."

Going with “like cures like“, you can assume Apis mellifica is for insect bites, stings or rashes . But it’s also listed as a homeopathic treatment for sore throat. Obviously, “like cures like” is hugely fucking ambiguous when it comes to homeophathy…

…Apis mellifica (honey bee) which causes pinkish red swelling with an itching and burning sensation in healthy people.

Somehow, in Coldcalm, this includes nasal congestion. so how much bee is forced into a Coldcalm tablet? 1 part Apis mellifica to 1,000,000,000,000 parts sugar. That's almost the same as the water ratio in Sunday school orange squash.

Belladonna: This plant is in the same family as potatoes, tomatoes and chili peppers. It’s Italian “beautiful lady” moniker is due to a one-time beauty practice. In the 16th and 17th century, ladies used belladonna berry juice eye drops to dilate their pupils, damn sexy look if you ask me, can't see why it died out .
This plant also contains a number of poisonous alkaloids which can cause drying of skin and mucous membranes, dilated pupils, fever, elevated heart beat, restlessness, coma, respiratory failure, and convulsions. In the woowaa world of homeopathy, tiny doses of Belladonna would be used to combat all those symptoms. Belladonna is present in a Coldcalm dose at a concentration of 6C or 1 part Belladonna to 1,000,000,000,000 parts sugar.

Eupatorium perfoliatum: Also known as Common Boneset,
Boneset from what I've read this morning is an hepatotoxic (liver damaging) and renal toxic (kidney damaging). but in Coldcalm it's at a low dose of 3C or 1 part Boneset to 1,000,000 parts sugar.

Gelsemium sempervirens: A flowering climbing vine. This plant contains a couple of motor nerve depressants. Gelsemine and Gelseminine,. In Coldcalm Gelsemium sempervirens is supposedly treating a headache at a dose of 6C. That’s 1 part plant to 1,000,000,000,000 parts sugar, still there? good not many more to go and I have to get dressed anyway .

Kali bichromicum: I like the name of this one sounds like a beach my wife would like, kali bichromicum is potassium dichromate [K2Cr2O7]. According to PubChem, potassium dichromate “…has been used externally as an astringent, antiseptic, and caustic. When taken internally, it is a corrosive poison.” Potassium dichromate is not good, really not good and at acute toxicity levels…

…potassium dichromate is corrosive to the eyes, skin, and respiratory and gastro-intestinal tracts. In the eyes, pain, severe burns, conjunctivitis. On the skin, dermatitis, ulcerated sores, including perforation of the nasal septum. If inhaled, sorethroat, labored breathing, shortness of breath.
Again it's at the 6c dilution so your safe

Nux vomica: Sounds like puke to me. In homeopathy, Nux vomica is the dried seeds of tree Strychnos nux-vomica L. (Loganiaceae). A bit of digging tells me the is from the strychnine tree. WTF? strychnine that's bad even I know that bad. Nasty horrible death kind of bad but hang on It’s nasal discharge that the 3C 0f Nux vomica (1 part to 1,000,000 parts sugar) in Coldcalm is supposed to target so at that level of dilution I wouldn't worry.

Phytolacca decandra: Vomiting, convulsions and difficulty breathing are some of the effects listed in conjunction with this little tounge twister more commonly know as pokeweed. The Iowa State University brief on pokeweed states,
“Because of the danger of human poisoning, pokeweed should be eradicated when discovered.”
In homeopathy, pokeweed is used to alleviate all manner of discomforts vision disorders, sore throats ooh and warts.

I truly hope this is the start of a backlash against these woowaa snake oil merchants and I'll be fervently following this story in the vain hope that Gina beats the crap, in a litigious way of course, out of Bioron.


Sadly I have just read about Bioron suing a blogger over the quite frankly truthful comments he made about another of Biorons woowaa medicine

Bully boys sue blogger

Holy Crap- Inuits know more than scientists

The effects of the Japanese Earthquake on March 11th were catastrophic and a stark reminder of how fragile our planet is, sadly though events like these also trigger a wave of woowaa and tosh that sickens me.

From the homeopathetic morons claiming to be able to cure you of radiation poisoning using nothing more than water to the ignorant conspiracy nutters that claim it was all the work of some secret weapon called HAARP.

HAARP is basically an observatory and a 28-acre field with 180 72 foot tall HF (high frequency) antennas, with a maximum transmission power of around 3600 kilowatts, this is only a tiny fraction of the strength of the natural solar radiation striking the same part of the ionosphere at which HAARP is aimed. The observatory operates all the time but the HF antenna array is activated only sometimes for very specific experiments, which average about once a month.

But this post is about something else far more laughable,
THE SUNS IN THE WRONG PLACE
According to the combined scientific knowledge of some dodgy looking Eskimos the sun is setting in the wrong place, although they claim it's still rising in the right place.
The woowaa brigade even have science to back up their claim from Dr. Richard Gross (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory), but like all woowaa the claims they make are not all they are cracked up to be and with a little bit of research, and I do mean little as there is a coffee and a jaffa cake waiting for me, we find out that, the day is shorter by 1.8 millionths of a second, and that the Earth's axis shifted by 17 centimetres (6.5 inches) which is absolutely, unequivocally and without a shadow of doubt not perceptible to humans, even Eskimos

Does this minute shift mean we are all doomed? Is the 2012 apocalypse going to happen? Are Fred & Wilma still married?

No, NO & I don't care as I always fancied Betty.

Advertising Standards Agency Slaps wrists of Ainsworths Homeopathic Pharmacy

Homeopathetic medicine is one of the many things in this world that truly irritates me. Practitioners of this kind of woowaa are high up on my list of "people the world could do without" which as it happens is rather long and seems to be growing faster that I can type.
Imagine my glee, well not so much glee more a smug little smirk, when I came across this little gem
ASA Adjudication on Ainsworths

Obviously this doesn't stop the sale of well packaged water or sugar pills to the clinically gullible but it is a bit of a slap on the wrists for these woowaa merchants.

Louise Mensch Slams Knob Jockey Journalist

Well done to Louise Mensch for putting David Jones Investigative Journalists in their place with a rather amusing retort to an arsey letter.

I find most of what passes for news abhorrent to say the least, the fame culture fascination that has infected our papers leaves me sneering with distaste whenever I happen to come across any such rag. They could at least make the paper softer so I could wipe my arse on the 3am girls faces.
