It 's been some time since I got interested in the subject of cancer, whether conventional medicine has any answer at all (beside simple surgery) , whether chemotherapy is worse than doing nothing, whether alternative medicines have any benefit, whether systematic testing is justified (whether X-rays are dangerous), and whether people who "die from cancer" actually die from cancer or most of the time from complications due to the treatment. It's been suggested that people generally die from the side effects of chemotherapy . It's my intuition as well. I found it very difficult to find reliable answers on all these questions. Most of the info I find on the net sound a lot like conspiracy theories and I am somewhat skeptical of the claims made on alternative treatments such as the miracle graviola extracts. Is the graviola story true for example ? Supposedly a pharma company halted research when they couldn't synthesize the compound that had been shown to be 10,000 times more effective than the best chemotherapy drug. I also read about a study in Japan that showed mice treated with graviola compounds fared better than those treated with chemotherapy, (untreated mice did better too since chemotherapy killed about half the mice) . Again it's hard to find info on this from a -supposedly- reliable, mainstream source. Here are some links : http://www.thehealthierlife.co.uk/about-us.html (this is an Agora publications, so I take it with a grain of salt) http://www.whale.to/ (lots of conspiracy theories there) http://douglassreport.com/ This guy says chemo is a hoax, and steaks and beers are good for you. He is called a nut. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/PAG00098/Cancer-Information-Dr-Weil.html Dr Weil At the same time , I sense something is wrong with the whole issue of cancer and its treatment. Conventional treatments are mostly not effective , and apparently actually shorten patients' lifes , and society bears a huge cost for these shortcomings. There is a gigantic transfer of wealth to the pharma industry and the medical profession and it goes almost totally unchallenged in the media and politics. This subject is never brought up in mainstream media , I am a seeker of truth and I know all traders are . I thought you would have some info on this issue and certainly some on here are M.D's so they must have their opinion on this as well.
