I strongly believe that as cancer patients we need to know all the facts before we can make an informed decision about our treatment,
Imagine my shock then to see a video from CRUK a few days ago that basically patronises those people who choose to take an alternative approach to healing their body.
I found the video insensitive and offensive to the many people who have gone to the trouble of searching for information, often for many months, and have then made an informed decision about how they want to heal themselves from the cancer.
It seems that the video has angered quite a few people; Chris Wark of Chris Beat Cancer in the US posted the video on his FB page and said that “CRUK is really ratcheting up their anti- nutrition/natural therapy propaganda” and there were over 100 comments all agreeing that CRUK had overstepped the mark in patronising those who choose not to go the conventional route of cut, poison and burn.
This was the whole point of the blog I did for Beauty Despite Cancer – patients need the full facts, honest facts, not untruths and misleading facts. We are smart enough to make up our own minds – it’s our bodies after all.
