While it's likely that the misdiagnose of cancer at its early stages could be blamed more on the doctors rather than the subtleties of illness, there's no evidence to suggest that the doctors were deliberately misdiagnosing him for all these years. It's likely that the problem with these doctors could be summed up with the lyrics of either "Flakes" (they don't do no good...you can stab and shoot and spit/but they won't be fixing it) or "Cocaine Decisions" (you're a doctor or a lawyer...From the stuff you're stickin' in it/I get madder every day/'Cause what you do 'n what you say/Affects my life in such a way). In other words, it's either incompetence or drugs or both that would cause doctors to misdiagnose something that is actually diagnosable.

If they really would've wanted to get rid of Frank, they would've probably found a faster way to do away with him. Or at least riddle him with AIDS, rather than prostate cancer.

No.

Prove me wrong.

Edit: do you sit around and think this shit up? Is this entertaining for you? If you got an answer one way or the other what would it mean?

It is just 'cause I've read that somewhere the other day, just minutes after having this idea crossing my mind:

Quote:
I still think he was a CIA hit, using their little radioactive particle tech in his food to create his cancer. Funny how guys like Frank and Bill Hicks die of cancer young while scumbags like Falwell live forever, while smoking and drinking twice as much.
Speaking of scumbags, fuck that fuckin' Tipper fuckin' Gore!! Anyone remember the PMRC that Frank spent so much time testifying against, and helped stop? Tippy ho is a bitch from HELL!!! Al can kiss my ass for marrying that phony cunt! And then when that scheme tanked, they pose for pictures with the Grateful Dead, master drug fiends!
Lick my zircon-encrusted asshole, Tipper!!
End of rant

People die, it's inevitable. Conspiracies are close to impossible to keep under wraps for a long period of time.

Many will discard such an idea as 'implausable'.

The termination of political individuals is not rare in
American history.
Zappa became overtly vocal politically
in the 1980's. I stand to be corrected, but I recall FZ himself
was aware that his late 1980's political delivery was being
monitored by the American secret services.

Bill Hicks, the stand up comic GreenGenes mentions
was also being overtly critical
of American political institutions around the same time.
He too expired soon after reaching a platform of influence.

I don't underestimate the idea that someone, somewhere,
may have decided that FZ was a threat.
In American historical fashion, it would be normal to extinguish
an individual to preserve the political elite's position of power.

I quote FZ himself 'While I was down in W.D.C, certain folks were not glad to see me..'

If anyone killed him, it was him....after all, the only vegetable he'd touch was tabacco. He balked at those who were health obsessed and thought they were going to live forever (according to the real frank zappa book)

For crying out load! He had problems peeing for years before his diagnosis, but was never properly checked because prostate cancer rarely hits men in their late 30s. So he had it for years before it was diagnosed, and before he became more poitically outspoken. That was also why this type of cancer, which otherwise has the highest successrate in terms of being cured, was deadly for him. It was discovered to late.

Geez, I spent time writing this.

Next equally serious question: Did Gail compose all Franks music? And was Frank actually just a puppet, because nobody would take a woman's compositional skills seriously? Can we be sure that it was not Gail that programmed the synclavier? Can we? She had access to it. She lived in the house. I mean all the evidence points towards her. SHE is a bona fide American Composer. SHE should have a bust in Bad Doberan!!!! We cannot be sure that Scully and Mulder are not already on the case. Can you prove they are not?

:roll: :roll: :roll: AAAAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!

Well, it wouldn't change the fact that he is dead, but it would mean a lot to me. To know the complete truth about facts (whatever they might be)...

Did I offend you with my question?

That is why that (poisoning with a carcinogenic substance) would have been the method of choice.

If he was a junkie, it would be an overdose, or a pool...

Good, you had your say.

HJ wrote:

Please, don't. No need to get excited, I was only asking. As other members have pointed out, it is plausible, even if still unlikely.

HJ wrote:

How imbecile and badly prepared were those doctors!!!... A man has problems urinating and he is not at all checked for a prostate swelling?! Even though I don't want to speculate on how it went, I don't know the facts (and in this case I don't want to know it either). Anyway, what is being discussed here is rather the ORIGIN of Franks tumor: i) unhealthy life-style (very likely, I'd say) ii) deterministic genetics iii) Stealth poisoning iv) other ? BTW, Frank was in his 40s

HJ wrote:

As far as I am aware Frank has been politically outspoken since always. The Porn Wars affair was pretty much middle 80s. Some people might not have liked a lot of this eloquent, intelligent personality actively questioning the govt's/medias oligopoly's positions so articulately. Five, 4, 2 years or even less time, is plenty for a large tumor to develop...

Humm... How odd...

HJ wrote:

Yes, unfotunetly I though you have had your say. If you think you are so good and so right about everything or that the subject of this here thread is completely stupid, I would advise you to stay away from it, so you don't annoy yerself again with such low discussions on the Legends, Myths and Fantasies board... NEXT.

This is the typical Ad Hominen line of argumentation... So my question is not serious because you don't judge it as such. I would ask you with which authority you claim that, but I already asked you to not come back, so please never mind. And it is not like each member's opinion don't matter: I enjoy hearing opposing views (although I don't take party on the alternative view here, I am only playing the alternate view's advocate), as long as they won't involve simply insulting me for what I believe or what want to know. I don't feel like taking this poor kind of straw men attack just because you think you are so omniscient... It is my question, and the most dumb you may think it is... I don't give a shit, I am not ashamed to ask it here, where I feel it is appropriate.

It's plausible. I did suspect Gail. That's all I need to know.

What dreadful blech. Carry on with your oh so somber latest theory. I'm starting the "Do Brazilians have a sense of humor?" thread. There's lots more factual data available on that.

However, it is also important to note that cirrhosis is not necessarily caused by alcohol use, or indeed any poison at all.

I apologize to any Brazilians with a sense of humor.

Do you think he was murdered MGG? If so, do you have a shred of proof? Why discuss it if not? This thread was started by YOU, and I haven't heard a thing yet that would authenticate a claim. Do you have any FACTS? Of course, it's going to come down to something our government did, and gee, we just can't prove it, right? Do you think it's possible he just died of cancer?

Are you going to give a straight answer or just deflect it off on something else again?
