Dr Szpak comments on the attached Medscape article, “Cancer is a disease of the whole body, not only the involved organs. It also affects patients’ families and friends.
It requires complex and long-term treatment, often with unpleasant adverse effect. It also affects emotions and clouds the judgment of patients and people involved in their support.
Often patients are more afraid of their treatment than the actual cancer diagnosis and its deadly course. Numerous ruthless people offer an alternative (not complementary) treatment.
The enclosed results of study conducted by researchers from Yale Cancer Center in New Haven, Connecticut; USA was not sponsored and was independent from any influence.
Alternative cancer treatment results in an increase of up to 2.5 times in cancer related death. Do not fall prey to unscrupulous people talking about conspiracy theories and offering often ineffective, if not harmful treatments, often at very high costs.”
