Cancer, that highly complex catch all term for literally hundreds of different conditions has a single natural cure. Almost too good to be true right? Myles and James recently meet up in person in Manchester to among other thing watch a shitty movie ‘One Answer to Cancer’ an Australian attempt at spreading bullshit into the world. The movie distrusts the chemical Aldera a treatment for cancer that has been heavily promoted in Oz. But has a massive love for the dangerous quack treatment of Black Salve.
In the state of Texas a clinic offers what some might call a miracle cure for cancer. The man behind this clinic is Dr Burzynski who claims to have discovered an underlying physiological difference between cancer patients and healthy people. Using quite frankly backward logic he has been opening ‘clinical trials’ using molecules he identified. The problem… There seems to be no clear scientific proof that these molecules work while evidence they harm. His clinic also charges patient (in the region of thousands of dollars) to be entered into these trials, something which is almost unheard of. The practices of the Burzynski clinic have raised many eyebrows in the scientific and medical community. To talk about the clinic Myles and James are joined by Ross from Brisbane skeptics.
Myles and James are joined by an old favourite of ours, C0nc0rdance to talk about Cannabis. C0nc0rdance believes that for too long woo and bad science has been allowed to infiltrate the discussion around the safety of this drug. He is attempting to redress this balance by provided evidence back videos demonstrating the true risk of Cannabis.
Myles and James are joined for a totally wizard podcast by Vicky Foster. Vicky is an advocate and active cancer researcher. Why haven’t we cured cancer, what is cancer and does cannabis ‘cure’ cancer?
This week Myles and James are joined by Gaz from the Leicester Skeptics in the Pub and Axis Mundi talks about his personal experience with alternative treatments for cancer. James and Myles try to see what changed Gaz’s mind and how he came to understand that he was not helping himself by refusing ‘western’ medicine.
