Dr. Robert Rowan, ND introduces this on Facebook:
“…a very conventional journal on oncology told us years ago that chemotherapy only adds about 2.1% to the overall 5 year survival rate of cancer in the USA and Australia. Yet even with this “science”, patients, like you, are shuttled into highly toxic therapy costing tens of thousands, maiming you, and for what, a 2.1% advantage”.

Cancer treatment hype gives false hope to many patients
“I’m starting to hear more and more that we are better than I think we really are,” said Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society. “We’re starting to believe our own bullshit.”
The consequences are real — and they can be deadly. Patients and their families have bought into treatments that either don’t work, cost a fortune or cause life-threatening side effects.
“We have a lot of patients who spend their families into bankruptcy getting a hyped therapy that (many) know is worthless,” Brawley said.
