You may not know this, but there is an interesting – and disturbing – statistic regarding chemotherapy. When it all comes down to it, you might be surprised to know that 75 percent of doctors surveyed in a 2013 report said they would refuse the treatment for themselves.
That’s three out of four.
And do you know why? Because they know of its devastating effects on the body and the immune system, and they are well aware that chemotherapy generally has a low overall success rate. And yet, this ineffective treatment is prescribed for just about every cancer there is.
Fact is, chemotherapy is often worse than the disease it is supposed to treat. Indeed, chemotherapy itself usually leads to a quicker death because of the havoc it wreaks on the body, wiping out your immune system and leaving you vulnerable to some of the most common viruses and bacteria that, normally, you wouldn’t be affected by in the least. A common cold, during chemotherapy, can often lead to pneumonia and death, thanks to the treatment’s poisonous effects on your white blood cells.
