“Liberation” treatment for Zamboni’s “CCSVI” is subsidized by the Canadian taxpayer

Posted by Colin Rose on November 29, 2010

I, for one, don’t want my taxes going up to support foreign charlatans.

Revenue Canada says that travel expenses must be backed up by a letter from a Canadian doctor indicating the treatment is necessary and could not be received here. Why would a Canadian doctor with professional integrity sign such a letter? Any medical treatment that is really necessary and has been scientifically proven to be beneficial is already available in Canada. If the treatment isn’t available in Canada then it is not a legitimate treatment and shouldn’t be supported by the tax system.

As for for Zamboni’s “liberation” treatment for MS, it is a classic example of junk science justified by the ruse of “CCSVI”, whose only benefit is to the bank accounts of foreign charlatans but with potential harm and is certainly not “necessary.” A “treatment” with no scientifically proven benefit but with any potential risk has an infinite risk/benefit ratio. A physician who signs a statement that the “liberation” treatment was necessary for treating MS is being grossly  unprofessional and acting contrary to the Hippocratic Oath.
