Also do know that chemo-poisons themselves cause cancer. Then, after the body is already in a doubly-weakened state: 1st. from the cancering process..., & then from whatever surgery and repeated radiation and repeated chemo inflicted, of course the body is so damaged that further cancers are the result, and no wonder most such people, needlessly, die.
No, most people treated for cancer in the US do not die. Some, but not all, cancer treatment can increase the risk of secondary cancers. Most people do not get such cancers.
