We often get pieces of information from very interesting sources, which we believe we should let other people know about. One such piece is available below regarding chemotherapy and just one of its often unknown negative effects after treatment. We thought that this was important information that others should be made aware of.
From Daily Health Alert edited by Francois Lubbe.
“As I’m sure you know, radiation can cause cancer. But less well known is the oncologist’s frightening secret. It’s a secret because most patients never hear one word of warning…
Chemotherapy can cause secondary cancers. And it often does.
2 or 20 per cent?
“A double-edged sword.”
That’s the not-so-comforting way Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, describes chemotherapy… so really, he should know what he is talking about.
Dr. Brawley adds… “There is a benefit from the drug and there is a harm from the drug.”
“Harm” barely even begins to describe it.
A few years ago, a friend of mine was fighting leukemia. His oncologist suggested a new chemo regimen. These are the very words the oncologist used… “There’s a 2 per cent chance it will cure you and a 20 per cent chance it will kill you.”
Now if that doesn’t say it all…
Nearly every cancer survivor I’ve ever known or spoken to has eventually developed a secondary cancer. Most of them assume that the second is related to the first. Few would dream that it’s more likely related to the chemo or radiation.
Dr. Brawley himself made that clear in an interview a few months ago. At that time, he was even more blunt on this topic. He said… “It is ironic but true that many cancer chemotherapies are known to cause cancers.”
Many! Brawley added… “It is something that the physician must consider when recommending treatment.”
I would hope so! But then, what alternatives do mainstream doctors have? Surgery. Chemo. Radiation. If a doctor dares stray beyond those treatments and into alternative health care, he might risk losing his license.”
Interesting that isn’t it? Did you know this was the case?
