Very easy to do this with what happened in that case. This case is very much scientific. You may call the story in itself an anecdote, but what actually transpired is scientific.
Also this child had cancer, they treated her with chemo, sent her home to die and then Burzynski cured her cancer, and then she died from the chemo that was done to her before she was even cured.
All it is is a story. Nothing to back up the claims. Effectiveness of a treatment is impossible to determine with one data point.
If his treatment is effective, why have his results never been demonstrated by independent researchers, or even through his own work?
