The movie 'Lorenzo's Oil' (1992) is currently playing on HBO. http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&cf=info&id=1800182886&intl=us It is a "Story about a couple who defy the medical professionals and try to save the life of their son who's suffering from an "incurable" disease." This movie upon watching it once again, was even more engrossing than the first time that I saw it. It has something for anyone interested in Alternative Medicine and Medical Research. You will see researchers, following in the footsteps of Benjamin Rush, marching lock step in the blind pursuit of science with the patient be damned. You will see the parents of a patient doing the impossible, pressing all the time for something that will actually help their son, science be damned. Susan Sarandon will be sure to please any Right Wringers in the audience with her famous liberal lines. See, gaggles of weak willed parents buy into the Learned physician researcher bullshit and cheerfully watch their offspring die from ALD as science marches along at its own slow pace. See the unlearned parents find a treatment for ALD, science be damned. And, last but NOT least, you will see that dreaded toxic 'rapeseed' oil showing up as part of the miracle Lorenzo's Oil cure. Proving once again, that even poisons of the PUFA purests can actually benefit some people. Now, how is that for a timeless medical research drama from the point of view of patients who just want something that helps them, and researchers wishing that those pesky parents would simply shut up?
