Why Do Most Physicians Refuse Chemo-treatments? =========================================================================== Chemo does not warrant being called therapy so I will refrain from using that misnomer. McGill Cancer Center polled 118 doctors and medical scientists recently. Answers to the questionnaires show that 3 of every 4 doctors and medical scientists would refuse chemo-treatments for themselves because of the devastating effects. Even though doctors are forced to sell chemo as life-extending, polled doctors and scientists noted that refusal to accept chemo for themselves was predicated on the fact that there are very very low incidences of cancer reversal (remission) with chemo and that those few remissions cannot be directly accredited to chemo-treatments. Most of the doctors who would refuse chemo for themselves stated that they would not allow their family members to suffer chemo either.
