“Prosecutors punish people it's their job and Jobs like that tend to attract people that enjoy hurting and exerting authority over others. Guilt is really just a pretext that allows those kinds of people to inflict misery onto others. To bad we only seem to see the pattern when they hurt the wrong people.”

“Antineoplastons is looking like snake oil remedy offered exclusively by a controversial cancer clinic "Burzynski Clinic" in texas.. I know people are looking for hope but if the results are not replicable it's not science. Selling Pseudo science to despite people is disgusting..”

“Your ignorance is astounding.

Check out the documentary "Burzynski" if you want to get a glimpse of how corrupt the FDA is.

BTW, Burzynski ran plenty of FDA approved trials and showed a far superior remission rate than chemo.”

“I agree.  That is why I suggested considering all the options and possible ramifications.”

“Burzynski ran an FDA approved trial in the 80's on children with inoperable brain cancer. The survival rate of children doing chemo/radiation was ZERO.
He got a 25% full remission rate.”

“Obviously, the parents of this child have been told the exact opposite. Games are being played with the lives of terminally ill children by some drug companies. It has got to be stopped.”

gramma91 on Nov 30, 2013 at 17:18:02

“I agree that there are other things that need to be considered, as I indicated in my post: other options, how much time doctors estimate patient would live with and without treatment; quality of life with/without; other patients with same or similar tumors and success rates; etc. Obviously, it is a serious decision; and anyone considering it should try to get as much information as possible, weigh the pros and cons, and then make a decision. Although my question asked why not if there are no options, I suggested they consider all ramifications before proceeding. I think we are on the same page. I appreciate your taking the time to respond.”

“Please be careful when biking..If your regularly commuting on a bike your going to be riding in less than Idea conditions..Reduced light in the morning and evening rain..All things that make you less visible to larger vehicles. A few bikers develop or already have a Mindset of entitlement that puts themselves and others In danger. You may feel justified while riding a bike emboldened perhaps by the exercise but any contact with a motor vehicle and the bikers is going to lose no matters who's fault it is. Strangle this disparity has lead to what I think are some very unhealthy attitudes on the part of a few Cyclist that act like traffic laws do not apply to them.”

“How much of the non mammary glandular tissue remains after a mastectomy? I was thinking as the number of women who get these procedures done preventatively increases more flexibility should be offered. Can you skin out the mammary tissue with a arthroscopic with suction like procedure?.It's the glandular mammary tissue that present the increased risk of becoming cancerous. Why couldn't the Hypo dermis and cutaneous tissue remain Perhaps even the nipples themselves there just ducts and dont contain the same type glandular tissue . Would make reconstruction a lot easier perhaps preserving sensitivity. Once cancer is their I understand keeping wide margins to be safe..But if your doing it pre-cancer it seems a bit more finesse can be used and still remove all the tissue susceptible to becoming cancerous ..”

“One way to get a handle on this is to get good data..Their should be a comprehensive independent reporting system for reporting abuse that's consequence free..IE it's primary role is just to gather Data not to investigate,seek criminal charges or report the individual identities involved..This Data is useful because it indicates the effectiveness of prevention and the percentage of incidents that are officially reported to chain of command and law enforcement.. The goal should be for most or all incident of abuse getting some sort of formal investigation..With the consequence free reporting system providing an accurate alternative source of information.I think that the independent reporting should be made available through the chaplain and healthcare systems within the military these well established institutions have missions that are best suited to responding to the needs of individual service members and can be accessed with out raising suspicions..The command structure and investigative bodies within the military have motivations that are often contradictory to the individual needs of aggrieved service members..Their set up to serve unit cohesion,order and discipline and those interest are often compete with the well being of the one individual claiming abuse..Especially when in the short term taking those claims seriously disrupts cohesion, order and discipline.”
