First of all the majority of these
cancers are treated with surgery, not chemotherapy. The average survival rate of
most cancers with chemotherapy is 2-3%"
The table is misleading because you don't wish to believe it.
Every breast cancer that I'm aware of has been treated with either
chemotherapy or generally a combination of chemo and surgery, but I'll bet you
that 90% of all breast cancer has some form of chemotherapy. I've known
several women with breast cancer.
Of ALL the 150,000+ cancer survivors in that study, you will find that 2 - 3%
of the survival to 5 years was attributed to those who received only
chemotherapy. That does not say that only 2 - 3% survived. There is
a humongous difference. Read the story. Others received other forms
of treatment including chemotherapy in combination with other options.
I took a couple of college level statistics courses and somehow I passed them
but I did learn one very important thing that was taught in both of them -
"Figures don't lie but liars figure" and that's how the myth of the 2
- 3% survival rate came up.
