Re: Doctors milk dying cancer patients for every last dollar

"The table is actually very misleading.

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.

The 2 - 3% is an absolute lie.

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.
