Laetrile At Sloan-Kettering

  • The story of a young science-writer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, who risked everything by blowing the whistle on a massive cover-up involving a promising cancer therapy.

  • “Though a documentary,
    it’s dramatic enough to be reminiscent of ‘The Insider’,
    the whistleblowing thriller about Big Tobacco.”

    New York Daily News
  • “Mr. Moss’s message is clear,
    shrewdly edited and
    peculiarly interesting.”

Cancer Is Serious Business
Documentary Series


    The story of a pioneering medical doctor and PhD biochemist who has discovered a unique and proprietary method of treating most cancers. This documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, near 50-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons. Defying the face of skepticism, legal attacks from state and federal agencies, and a powerful propaganda campaign to stop Burzynski.


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

  • Burzynski charts how a Texas medical doctor and biochemist developed Antineoplastons … and with them began to treat a wide range of cancers … with remarkable and continuing success only to bring down the full force of the medical establishment, which has laid assault to him in the most  stupefying, devious and costly manner.”

    Los Angeles Times
  • ” … a dramatic expose of the FDA and its incestuous relationship
    with Big Pharma as it seeks to first discredit, then co-opt Burzynski’s discovery.”
