Here is a list of negative side-effects so those with cancer can weigh their options:
CHEMO (which is approved by the FDA)
These are the side-effects I discovered along my journey through chemo and radiation. Of course, not everyone has all the same side-effects, but count on experiencing most of these if you've undergone large amounts of chemo.
Hair loss, which includes loss of eyebrows, eyelashes, anywhere on your body you can find hair.
Loss of fingernails.
Loss of muscle tissue. Don't think that because you once were able to walk up a short flight of stairs that you'll still be able to do that while on chemo.
Loss of bone density.
Damage to your entire GI tract: expect to have dry mouth for several years following chemo, even after you've beaten the cancer.
Deterioration of the gums, followed by loose teeth.
Numbness in hands and feet (nerve damage).
Anemia (loss of red blood cells, which can cause fatigue and weakness).
Loss of blood, and possible bleeding to death since the body no longer has blood-clotting capabilities.
Susceptibility to infection.
Nausea and vomiting.
Fried ovaries, so that any young women who undergoes this treatment should be prepared to lose the ability to have children. Same with men.
Possible liver failure, kidney failure, heart failure and/or damage to all these and other vital organs.
Finally DEATH. Let me make clear, death from chemo NOT cancer.
Another important piece of information to consider is the fact that doctors have been treating cancer patients with chemo since the 1800s.
SIDE-EFFECTS of B17 (B17 which is NOT approved by the FDA because it can't be patented)
Lowering of blood-pressure (too much will cause a significant drop in blood pressure: Be Aware).
Upset stomach and headache if you take too much.
That's it! So . . . which treatment plan would you prefer following?
If B17 is the route you'd like to take, see the left sidebar for more information on how to get this wonderful supplement that the FDA has banned in the land of the free because it would mean loss of lots of money to fill their already full pockets. They made B17 illegal because it might be "dangerous." If that's such a big concern, why don't they make chemo illegal? Chemo nearly killed me three times!
