CPT12 to Air "Burzynski: The Movie"

March 1, 2013 - Denver, CO – Colorado Public Television (CPT12) will air “Burzynski: The Movie,” on March 7 at 7 pm. This presentation will feature the film’s director, Eric Merola and Houston’s Burzynski Clinic spokesperson Azad Rastegar live in the CPT12 studio in Denver on Channel 12 and will be available via web stream live during the broadcast and again on March 8 at 10 p.m. (MST) at www.cpt12.org/Burzynski through June. 
Burzynski, is the story of a pioneering medical doctor and PhD biochemist, Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who-based on discovering a new group of peptides in the human body- invented a new, proprietary gene-targeting cancer therapy called Antineoplastons. This documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure. Dr. Burzynski has obtained FDA-approved clinical trials of his discovery, Antineoplastons, resulting in the largest and most convoluted defeat against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.  
“CPT12 has a legacy of supporting independent voices – those of filmmakers, artists and innovators,” said Shari Bernson, Director of Development at CPT12. “The station continues to build on a long history of airing content that is ahead of the mainstream media. Our viewers and supporters have let us know that they like to think for themselves and we strive to provide access to new talent as well as information to help empower people to make their own discoveries and decisions."
Bernson continued, “Our track record for being ahead of the curve is ripe with examples from local to international music, art, spirituality and Transparency Content – programs that examine and question the world we live in, ranging from alternative and natural health & wellness to factory farming, GMOs or genetically modified organisms, crop circles, the events of 9/11, and the environment.  CPT12 provides a forum for public discussion and we invite you to participate!” 
Directed by Eric Merola, the film provides first person testimonials and documented proof of the sabotage, misrepresentation and collusion between the FDA and the National Cancer Institute. The government and big pharma have put forth multiple attempts to harass Dr. Burzynski with grand juries, all of which have found no basis for a guilty verdict. Burzynski: The Movie has met with critical acclaim by numerous individuals and outlets including The New York Times which on June 4, 2010 offered, “No one appears to contest the efficacy of his treatment; the problem… is a pharmaceutical industry with nothing to gain – and much to lose – from the introduction of a highly successful, nontoxic competitor to chemotherapy and radiation.”
