The study released tonight says the long-term side effects of children's cancer treaments are actually more common than doctors and survivors ever realized. Children getting chemotherapy or radiation are eight times more likely to develop severe health problems in their 20's and 30's includin heart attacks and strokes, second cancers such as breast and thyroid cancer, premature menopause and major joint replacement
According to Dr. Ralph Moss, author of the book Questioning Chemotherapy, the success rate for "curing" cancer using chemotherapy is really only about 2 - 5 percent at best -- and this is only in certain types of cancers. This means that in about 98 percent of cases, chemotherapy is absolutely useless in treating those specific cancers, and in the others for which it is completely useless -- breast, colon, lung, brainstem gliomas -- it is 100 percent ineffective.
"If a 50-year-old woman came to the hospital with shortness of breath and had a history of breast cancer, there are a lot of (doctors) who would not know that the drugs could have caused cardiac issues," she said.
Like a lot of childhood cancer survivors, Isaac continues to feel the effects of his treatment years after it ended. Isaac, who was diagnosed when he was 9 weeks old with acute myelogenous leukemia, received eight doses of intrathecal chemotherapy—chemotherapy delivered directly to the brain—as part of his treatment. Although it saved his life, it interfered with his brain’s development, causing the learning disabilities.

The success rate for chemotherapy is around 60% on average.
Of course there are cases where the success rate is 1-2%. If you're horribly ill, you're horribly ill.
I would rather like someone else than parents to decide for children (like doctors), because if the child has a parent like you, he/she would face certain death.

Only problem is that they call it a "success" if cancer is gone for a few years. If it comes back and kills you after lets say 5 years then they still call it a success and claim it treated the cancer.
Another thing I wonder is why there is such a huge increase in childhood cancers, which is something that was nearly unheard of just decades back.
I wonder if it can be all the chemicals and vaccines that the younger generation is feed with today....
I bet most of my generation and younger wont even make it to 50-60 years of age before they die.edit on 10-9-2012 by juleol because: (no reason given)

The trial of 1939 put an end to any proper scientific investigation of the Frequency Instrument. The trial was the undoing of Rife. Not used to being savagely attacked in open court he crumbled under the pressure. Although he won the case, he turned to alcohol and became an alcoholic. Fishbein used his pervasive power within the AMA to thwart further investigation of Rife's work. Dr. Millbank Johnson died in 1944. In 1950 Rife joined up with John Crane who was an electrical engineer. They worked together for ten years building more advanced frequency machines. But in 1960 the AMA closed them down. Crane was imprisoned for three years and a month, even though fourteen patients testified as to the effectiveness of the machine. Rife died in 1971.
