Chemotherapy for cancer began to reach its peak while I was in my neurosurgery residency. From the beginning I have said I would rather die than be poisoned. The true value of chemotherapy is as controversial as anything in modern medicine, and some say the average life extension is 4 months.
On the other hand, a small percentage of patients are indeed cured. Published statistics are all over the place with 5 year survival of malignancies of nervous system at 7% and of pancreas at 33%. Personally, I would opt for 20 treatments of 100 grams of vitamin C IV and a number of supplements such as IP6 and PawPaw.
