You are spot on. My sister recently lost both her in-laws to chemo-related leukemia and pancreatic cancer. They were both given extremely expensive allopathic drugs and both died before the initial projected time of demise.
I tried to get her to pass on some good natural product ideas like pau d'arco or even a good selenium supplement from a natural source such as brazil nuts in heavy strength dosing but she works in a doctor's office and believes the good doctors know better and the two and four months they each respectively lived were the best chance they had and the family felt glad they had that (limited) amount of time - all I know is I am immediately going up to my parents home the minute I hear anything and I am taking over their treatment.
But not surprising from a family where every member (including a 16 and 22 year old) is on at least two medications each.
It's pathetic what this cancer of society is allowed to get away with for money and greed. It's pure ignorance.
