The White House Answers The Dr. Burzynski Petition
The Obama White House offered American citizens the opportunity to “petition” the White House about their grievances with the federal government.
One such petition was about the persecution of Dr. Stanislaw R. Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D, a medical doctor who was (and still is) curing brain cancer in Texas. Much of his persecution came from the totally corrupt Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which is nothing but a puppet of the pharmaceutical industry. Of course, the state of Texas has also been a participant in the persecution.
The persecution of Dr. Burzynski by the FDA is well-known and is even the subject of an outstanding full-length movie. See this website to learn about the movie:

Here is the official petition to the White House:
A Petition to the White House
Antineoplastons, cancer drugs in FDA trials since 1995, results publicly audited by Congress, to gain final FDA-approval”
Antineoplastons are gene-targeted cancer medications that have completed Phase 2 FDA clinical trials in 2009, with permission granted to enter the final Phase of FDA testing. These medicines are the first in medical history to cure inoperable childhood brainstem glioma with a 27.5 – 50 percent cure rate, among other cures. Other gene-targeted cancer medications have been given accelerated FDA-approval without demonstrating a single cure.
Antineoplastons, proven to be non-toxic, remain unapproved for public use. For the sake of public health, the results from Phase 2 clinical trials of Antineoplastons need to be publicly acknowledged by the FDA and audited by Congress. These medicines have been in FDA clinical testing since 1995? it's time for the general public to have access to them.
This petition is essentially a major criticism of the FDA drug approval process. For example it says: “Other gene-targeted cancer medications have been given accelerated FDA–approval without demonstrating a single cure.
The petition is a request for the White House and/or Congress to investigate why the FDA has given permission to gene-therapy drugs that had not demonstrated any survival benefit, but yet the FDA has not given permission to a gene-therapy product that has already cured many cancer patients and is already in the FDA approval process.
More than the required 5,000 people digitally “signed” the petition, so the White House staff was duty-bound, by their own claims, to look into the petition and investigate the FDA.
The author of the petition (and I do not know who the author was) wanted the WHITE HOUSE and/or CONGRESS to look into the corruption in the FDA. The author did NOT WANT the FDA to look into the corruption in the FDA.
Let me repeat that again, since some people in Washington D.C. did not understand the purpose of the petition: The author did NOT WANT the FDA to look into the corruption in the FDA.
What idiot would ask the FDA to investigate the FDA. This would be like asking the foxes to guard the chicken house.
Apparently, no one on President Obama's staff in the White House has an I.Q. over 20, and no one was smart enough to recognize what the complaint was all about.
I actually predicted that the White House would be oblivious to the petition and that the response to the petition would come from the FDA, but I thought that the true authorship of the response would be hidden behind the name of some low-level stooge in the White House.
I was right and I was wrong. First, I was right that the answer did come from the FDA. However, I was wrong that the authorship of the reply would be covered up. The author was publicly noted to be an FDA employee. I must give the White House credit for being honest enough to give credit where credit was due. However, they did not mention that she was the “Drug Chief” of the FDA.
Ugh, how dumb does the White House think we are? They asked the FDA's “Drug Chief,” Dr. Janet Woodcock, to investigate corruption in the FDA drug approval process. She is under investigation herself for bias in approving drugs. However, to be fair to her; such accusations “come with the territory” in her position. The drug industry is a big bunch of ultra wealthy “cry babies,” so being accused of bias is impossible to avoid in her position.
In any case, here is the official response of the “White House” (i.e. the FDA's “Drug Chief”) – emphasis added:
Protecting Public Health Through Safe and Effective Treatments
By Janet Woodcock, the Director of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) at the Food and Drug Administration.
Thank you for your petition asking the Obama Administration to accelerate the approval of antineoplastons for the treatment of cancer.
As you know, cancer treatments go through a careful research process to prove that they are safe and effective. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has recommended that controlled clinical studies be conducted in order to assess the safety and efficacy of the therapy. To date no randomized, controlled trials showing the effectiveness of antineoplastons have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals nor have all of the trials needed to approve antineoplastons as a treatment for cancer been conducted.
The timely review and approval of safe and effective new treatments are central to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) mission to protect and promote the public health. In fact, over the past 12 months, FDA approved 35 new medicines, including three cancer drugs that were approved in less than six months. This is among the highest number of approvals in the past decade.
Many of the drugs are important advances for patients, including: two new treatments for hepatitis C; a drug for late-stage prostate cancer; the first new drug for Hodgkin's lymphoma in 30 years; and the first new drug for lupus in 50 years. The approvals came while drug safety standards have been maintained.
A report released last month by FDA, FY 2011 Innovative Drug Approvals, shows faster approval times in the United States when compared to the FDA's counterparts around the globe. Of the 35 approvals in FY 2011, 24 occurred in the United States before any other country in the world, and also before the European Union, continuing a trend of the United States leading the world in first approval of new medicines.
The Administration remains committed to the timely approval of safe and effective drugs to improve the treatment of cancer and other illnesses.
OK, let's look at the facts. The “careful government research” of the FDA has given the United States an overall cure rate for cancer of 3 percent.
No natural cancer treatment from Mother Nature, many of which have more than a 90 percent cure rate on newly diagnosed cancer patients, has ever been approved by the FDA. That is essentially what the petition was saying.
Do the math. The FDA “approves” cancer treatments with a 3 percent cure rate, and “ignores” cancer treatments with a 90 percent cure rate. Somehow the letter from the FDA failed to mention that fact. What a shock.
As the reader can learn from other web pages on the www.CancerTutor.com website, the FDA has intentionally “rigged” their regulations to make it financially impossible for any person or entity, except the ultra-wealthy drug companies, to afford to get “FDA approval” status. She somehow forgot to mention that fact.
Burzynski's cure rate on advanced brain cancer patients in children is not 90 percent, but it is far higher than the drugs with a 3 percent cure rate that the FDA routinely approves.
Aside from the fact that the author of the White House reply intentionally ignores the extensive relationship and battle between Burzynski and the FDA and the National Institutes of Health (e.g. the NIH has filed 11 patents trying to steal the Burzynski patents so they could shut him down), the author totally ignored what the petition was requesting – that the WHITE HOUSE LOOK INTO THE CORRUPTION IN THE FDA.
The author totally ignores and buries the corruption in the FDA, she totally ignores the extensive battles between Burzynski and the FDA and NIH, and she pretends that the problems are Burzynski's fault. Why would you be surprised, she works for the FDA.
Obviously, no one in the White House had the slightest clue, or the slightest concern, as to what the petition was all about.
The truth is that both entities (the White House and the FDA) had a perfect understanding of what the petition was all about, they just chose to ignore the will of the more than 5,000 people who digitally “signed” the petition.
No one should be shocked by any of that, this has been going on for decades.
My question to President Obama is this: “if he was going to totally ignore all of the petitions, why did he even offer U.S. citizens the right to petition the President??” I guess that is what politicians are supposed to do – pretend they care about the commoners.
FDA Persecution of Natural Products
This is an excellent article on how badly the FDA wants to destroy all natural products so that the only option for sick people is prescription drugs:
