This common breast cancer treatment could be deadly
Indian researchers studied 350 women with late-stage breast cancer
to test the benefit of chemo, surgery and radiation.
All the women in the study received chemo for their breast cancer
that had spread to other parts of their bodies.
Half the women also had surgery to remove their original breast tumours and the lymph nodes under their arms. And they received a course of radiation afterwards.
Chemotherapy could be enough
According to the study, surgery and radiation had no effect in prolonging the lives of the women who received all three treatments.
After 17 months, there were 111 deaths in the group that had their breast cancers cut out, compared to 107 deaths in the group that did not.
And that means there was no difference in survival between the women who had their original tumours removed and those who hadn’t.
So when should you opt for surgery?
Now I’m not saying avoid surgery and radiation completely. After all, surgery and radiation can clear the tumour
from the breast. This can be a big benefit if you’re bothered with the feel of the mass. Or, if the tumour
has broken through your skin.
But, since the research team found that cutting out the breast tumour increased the cancer
growth in other parts of the body, you need to go into this three-part treatment with your eyes open.
So before you say yes to surgery and radiation ask your doctor why it’s necessary.
The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...
I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.
Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!
That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").
And if you or someone you love is battling cancer... You definitely can't afford to ignore what could very well be the only natural compound that stops this stealth killer in its tracks.
