SHUTTING DOWN REVICI

From The Cancer Chronicles #19
© January 1994 by Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D.


For the second time this year, New York State health authorities have shut down a prominent cancer doctor. In November, the state revoked the license of Emanuel Revici, MD.... They charged him with inadequate examinations and record keeping. As in the case of Dr. Robert Atkins [C.C. #17], no patient filed a complaint; it originated among officials.

Dr. Revici is now 96 years old but is still practicing medicine. Old age is not a crime, however, and orthodox physicians are generally left free to practice in their later years. The cancer establishment has been out to get Revici for decades. He is a 'heretic,' who uses medicines of his own invention and claims some astonishing results. Other doctors (including radiologist Seymour Brenner, MD) feel there is an urgent need for clinical testing.

Since February, I have participated in several meetings with Office of Alternative Medicine (OAM) officials and Dr. Revici, trying to set up just such a fair evaluation.

Little has happened. Now, an official evaluation becomes next-to impossible, since the aged doctor must occupy his days in a desperate struggle to restore his medical license. The famous U.S. Appeals Court case of Schneider v. Revici (1987) affirmed a cancer patient¼s right to get not just Revici¼s treatment, but any alternative method. But state authorities think they know better and have trampled on our hard-won constitutional and human rights. This is a tragedy for cancer patients and must not go unanswered....
