with the Federal Drug
Administration, though he
was distributing CanCell
throughout the United States.
The Federal Food, Drug
and Cosmetic Act obligates all
new drugs to be proved safe
and effective by the FDA.
Seven months ago Judge
Friedman ruled that, because
he failed to file with the FDA,
Mr. Sopcak could not dis-
tribute CanCell.
"My ruling had nothing to
do with whether the formula
was effective or not," he said.
"It had to do with the fact that
he didn't comply with the law.
"But it seems to me that if
he really cared about these
people (to whom he dis-
tributes CanCell), he would
file with the FDA. If he would
at least try, maybe I could use
some discretion..."
Mr. Sopcak said he has no
interest in filing with the FDA
both for legal reasons (he
claims the FDA has no juris-
diction over his product be-
cause he does not sell CanCell
or make a profit from it) and
because he describes the bu-
reau as "the enforcement arm
of the AMA (American
Medical Association)." The
AMA, he claims, makes a lot
of money off those with can-
cer, and CanCell "is a suc-
cessful treatment for both
cancer and AIDS."
Mr. Sopcak believes Judge
Friedman is "a decent human
being. I have no vendetta
against him."
But, he claims, neither
Judge Friedman nor the FDA
is really familiar with the
CanCell formula as it is today.
With each "increase in the vi-
brational frequency of the uni-
verse" Mr. Sopcak must
change the CanCell formula.
He says two such increases
have occurred, in May and
November, since the judge
placed the injunction.
Mr. Sopcak is appealing the
court order.
The forerunner of CanCell
was first created as Entelev
by James Sheriden in 1936.
(Mr. Sheriden agreed to an in-
junction before the case came
to court, leaving Mr. Sopcak
the sole defendant.) In 1984,
Mr. Sopcak began working
with the formula. He pro-
duces it at his home.
CanCell gained national at-
tention two years ago after a
Wisconsin couple began using
the water to treat their 10-
year-old son, who had bone
cancer. They were later

Bernard Friedman

charged with child abuse
(CanCell includes specific di-
rections that it not be used
with "any other cancer or
AIDS therapy. This includes
chemotherapy, radiation, hor-
mone therapy, AZT, DDI,
acupUncture, Rife or other vi-
brational therapies, radionic,
ozone or other oxygen thera-
pies, etc.")
Mr. Sopcak says the treat-
ment is successful about 80-
85 percent of the time.
Meanwhile, the letters keep
pouring into Judge Fried-
man's office; it's always heav-
iest after a TV program

With each
"increase in the
vibrational
frequency of the
universe" Mr.
Sopcak must
change CanCell.

featuring CanCell, such as
was aired last week on "The
Maury Povich Show."
Mr. Sopcak encourages his
backers to write President Bill
Clinton, their congressmen
and senators and local media
— and, of course, Judge
Friedman. Letters have come
to the judge from as close as
Lansing and as far as New
York. He labels them "heart
wrenching" and says he often
sees his secretary crying as
she reads them.
But the judge has plenty of
supporters as well. The
American Cancer Society has
come out in opposition to
CanCell, and numerous
physicians have praised
Judge Friedman for issuing
the injunction. In fact, one
wrote, "Why don't you do
more?" ❑
