Today, most cancer patients die from their treatment and not from their cancer. Tragically, most people do chemotherapy because they think it’s their only option. Yet more than three out of four doctors would not use it on themselves. It is well known in the cancer industry that chemotherapy is both dangerous and ineffective. Despite this, about 80 percent of all cancer patients get chemotherapy—an expensive choice in exchange for no benefits. Statistics show that about 98 percent of patients who opt for chemotherapy would actually live longer and have higher quality lives if they opted to do nothing at all. While the damage done to cancer patients is well established, new studies show that chemotherapy drugs have taken a deadly toll on the hospital and clinic workers who handled them. Many thousands of health care workers were exposed to these dangerous chemicals. These workers are now being diagnosed with cancers that have been linked to that exposure. Past studies have found contamination in areas where workers prepare and deliver chemotherapy drugs, as well as finding these chemicals in the blood and urine of nurses and others who worked with them. A Danish study found an elevated risk for breast, thyroid, nervous system and brain cancers in the nursing population. Even tiny amounts of these dangerous chemicals are causing cancer in healthy people.
