Both. I’m happy to help anyone with research. Alas, neither will they let us research the effectiveness or biology, nor themselves do the research. It’s a closely guarded secret. I suggest that it is a crime to keep the supposed ‘cure of cancer’ a secret.

Yes. Data should speak. Hence, I used the words ‘alleged quack’ and ‘myth’. Can you dispute the fact that in the absence of data on his treatment effectiveness, it can be called a ‘myth’? But IMO, he’s not curing anyone.

😂😂 When visiting the sick: *American: “Get well soon” *British: “Wish you a speedy recovery” *Indian: “I know someone who died with that same illness”

This is unfortunately too common in our parts of the world. I am wondering if such things happen in other LMICs like in Africa or South America,

It’ll be a good idea to study the country location of downloads of these articles. My guess is majority of them would be in HICs where resource-stratification isn’t followed. IMO, very rarely do practicing docs know/follow similar guidelines.

just adopted the for tobacco products and is the 1st country in the region to do so. One of the main effects is the reduction of attractiveness of tobacco products to the youth.

I’m in agreement with you and have always strived to expose them in my chosen career (and continue to do so).

Thank you for your comment. I agree with the latter part of your statement. Oncologists should not feed of a vulnerable patient. Sadly, it happens not infrequently. But that doesn’t disprove the effectiveness of several chemo regimens in curing and controlling cancer.

I don’t even know if there is any effect. Surely, there must be some placebo. Patient continues my Rx as well. But several do not.

Thread by an oncologist on glorified quackery in India. nails it when he writes 'faith supersedes science'. The issue is also a commentary on fragile healthcare system, affordable treatment and lack of awareness in the country.

Lung cancer awareness month. Majorly avoidable causes like Bidis and cigarettes make up half of the tobacco consumed in South Asia.
