As tipped off by Brother Orac this morning: from “60 pct of cancer patients try nontraditional med”:
Some people who try unproven remedies risk only money. But people with cancer can lose their only chance of beating the disease by skipping conventional treatment or by mixing in other therapies. Even harmless-sounding vitamins and “natural” supplements can interfere with cancer medicines or affect hormones that help cancer grow.
This is mainstream sci/med journalism done right. Period.
