If chemotherapy fails 97% of the time, why do doctors recommend it? (VIDEO)
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. According to the National Institute of Health, around 1,658,370 new cases will be diagnosed and 589,430 people will die from cancer in 2015.
While most conventional cancer treatments revolve around a mix of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, some people question their efficacy — particularly chemotherapy.
In the following videos, two naturopathic doctors make the argument that in many cases, chemotherapy does more harm than good.
In the first video, Peter Glidden, BS, ND, brings up the relationship between cancer and monetary profit. Peter Glidden cites a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, which found that over a 12-year period, chemotherapy did not cure adult cancer 97% of the time.
“Why is it still used? There’s one reason, and one reason only,” Glidden says in the video. “Money.”
