Oh good grief, fella
Maybe you should go back and review the history of your posts here. You came on and labeled my article a diatribe in your initial post and then proceeded to label what I wrote as a lie, ultimately sinking into the tired old refrain about me being interested in peddling supplements and then posted personal slams against both myself and Luella.
Perhaps I could have been more diplomatic in some of my responses, but what I posted does not come close to the poor form you have exhibited here. No amount of justifying and obfuscation can change that. Apparently no amount of research or studies can change your mind either.
Inosofar as my article belonging in a debate forum, I would point out that it was based in large part on two studies and that many readers would find the dismal figures of how patients are treated needlessly and in many instances have their suffering increased up until their final days to be not only news, but eye-opening news at that. Part of what I wrote could be labeled as opinionated, but I would propose that my opinions are solidly based in fact and personal experience.
Due to the limitations of what doctors have been taught, and apparent greed, they continue to treat patients long after they have determined that they are beyond saving. While you may be able to find a tiny number of exceptions, chemo is almost never successful with late stage cancers. Neither is it successful with cancers which have metasticized beyond their primary location. The same is true for radiation. What those of us who do know a bit about nature and alternative treatments know is that there are alternatives that frequently are successful in such instances - often after mainstream medicine has failed.
Sadly, too many times I have seen people who desperately want to live turn to alternative treatments in their final days after their doctors hung on to them to the point that their immune systems have been virtually destroyed, their major organs and entire body damaged, and suffering from wasting disease - due in great part to their treatments and not their cancers. Many of them could have been saved if the doctors had not hung on to them for so long and continued to treat them in a way that only inflicted further damage and suffering.
Because of that, yes I am opinionated on the subject of cancer and I think I have very good reasons for being so.
