Chaotic wrote:Not even breast cancer specifically, chemotherapy is one of the biggest scams in the modern age, it basically exposes your body to highly radioactive and toxic elements/substances. Which can certainly kill/halt cancer and in doing so does the same thing to the rest of your body, they can't contain it just to the cancer and it often damages the rest of the body severely. I don't agree with or put my faith in 'alternative medicine' so for the current time chemotherapy is the best way to get in remission and the multi billion dollar business it is, really makes the doctors less likely to want a cure not more likely (a huge problem in western doctor system).
Medievil China developed a system where doctors in a village would get paid only when everyone in the village is healthy, in western society the doctor only gets paid when you are sick! So why would he want to cure you and lose a source of income?
Sounds like a conspiracy theorist xD
People say the same thing about doctors in regards to organ donation, that doctors will try less to save someones life if they are an organ donner. Which, as multiple studies have proved, is false... In western medicine doctors get sued all the time for anything and everything, even when there was nothing medically that could be done to stop those results. That is the real problem with western society is how lawyer and sue happy everyone is. Are there one or two bad doctors who have a failing practice who rely on sick patients? sure, but that's with any business. But by and large on net doctors make enough money where that isn't even on their thoughts, nor something they would even comprehend.
Lastly, if doctors wanted to only make money, why are doctors against continuous life support?
Are there some problems with the pharmaceutical industry? yes of course. But the overwhelming majority of doctors follow the Hippocratic oath...
The real problem imo is governments limiting the funding for cancer research. Trump for example, wants to cut the NIH funding down by 1/3. If we as a society really want to move away from mediocre treatments, which as you say are basically the only remedy, if you can even call it that, then we need to focus on bringing awareness to the medicial problems and getting governments to support finding a cure.
