SHUTTING DOWN REVICI
From The Cancer Chronicles #19

For the second time this year, New York State health authorities have

radiologist Seymour Brenner, MD) feel there is an urgent need for clinical

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
