Criticism for the pharmaceutical industry’s treatment of cancer has reached a new high as information on its efficacy and the deadly effects it has on patients has resurfaced.
Various health media outlets have been reporting on a statement released by Hardin B. Jones that was published in the journal Transactions of the New York Academy of Sciences. According to the statement, cancer patients who refused to take any kind of treatments lived longer than those did take them.
“People who refused treatment lived for an average of twelve and a half years,” Jones said, as reported by News Target. “Those who accepted other kinds of treatment lived on an average of only three years.”
This newly recovered information seems to back up what many other studies have found on the efficacy and side effects of cancer treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy.
One study that’s findings were published in the journal of Clinical Oncology debunked a claim that chemotherapy helped increase a cancer patient’s lifespan by five years. The researchers surveyed 22 different cancer cases from the cancer registry data in Australia and found that chemotherapy only contributed to a 2.3% increase in lifespan.
This study was conducted in response to literature which stated that chemotherapy was solely responsible for a lifespan increase of five years in cancer patients.
This new information greatly diminishes the perception of chemotherapy as a safe and effective treatment for cancer. This is also due to the fact that chemotherapy causes a wide range of harmful side effects which include nerve damage and a condition known as “chemo brain.”
Although news reports frequently cover stories of aggressive cancer treatments, they often only focus on the cases that have a positive outcome. This has led to an overly-optimistic misconception of the efficiency of cancer treatments, and alternative viewpoints are needed to ensure unbiased reporting.
