Some quotes to give you pause for thought before deciding to take chemo
“To pass the FDA test with a drug, after spending few hundreds million of dollars, you just have to prove that this drug can shrink cancer tumors. NOT CURE.. SHRINK !! In fact most drugs shrink cancer tumors at the beginning but then…(they come back more aggressively)” Shaman Urban, Cancercured Yahoo chat group.
“A study of over 10,000 patients shows clearly that chemo’s supposedly strong track record with Hodgkin’s disease (lymphoma) is actually a lie. Patients who underwent chemo were 14 times more likely to develop and 6 times more likely to develop cancers of the bones, joints, and soft tissues than those patients who did not undergo chemotherapy (NCI Journal 87:10).”—John Diamond, M.D.
“Children who are successfully treated for Hodgkin’s disease are 18 times more likely later to develop secondary malignant tumours. Girls face a 35 per cent chance of developing by the time they are 40—-which is 75 times greater than the average. The risk of leukemia increased markedly four years after the ending of successful treatment, and reached a plateau after 14 years, but the risk of developing solid tumours remained high and approached 30 per cent at 30 years” (New Eng J Med, March 21, 1996)
“Chemotherapy and radiation can increase the risk of developing a second cancer by up to 100 times, according to Dr. Samuel S. Epstein.
