Not to mention, one drug doesn't have the exact same effect as another drug, they all have different mechanisms, metabolisms, and cytotoxic profiles. Of course I don't think you would understand an acid-base reaction if I thought it to you, and yet here you are claiming to know everything there is to know about chemotherapy?

    Oh, and here's a thought for you. Pharmaceutical companies and doctors would get sued right up their ass if they were knowingly pushing products that were killing their patients. You wanna know why? BECAUSE THEY AREN'T THE ONLY ONES IN THE BUSINESS OF MAKING MONEY. It happens all the time, that's why malpractice is such a big deal in this country. Oh, and did it ever occur to you that the pharmaceutical industry isn't just some homogeneous entity, and actually made up of thousands of companies competing with each other to come out with the most effective treatments? Giving their patients cancer wouldn't be very profitable for them, considering no one would ever buy their products again and their competitors would become obscenely rich taking over their market share. Maybe you need to get your nose out of your fantasy land Marxist books and start using your brain.
    *Laughs*

    I provide studies you talk. Thats a problem....

    Please show studies that the "newer" chemo therapies are much safer than the old. Its called intentionality, When they buy the system to suit their products. Why aren't pharmaceutical companies selling medical marijuana, or herbs? Mary J will make a killing though they aren't interested. Because they cannot patent those items. The system is already fixed for providing bad therapies to increase patients chance of cancer. There is a reason why they put a shield on your balls when you get an x-ray.The cancer industry subsidizes The american cancer society, which creates cancer awareness week and other fallacies to buy the masses into believing in there research. There are no competitors, they eliminated most of them.

    Keep believing in the mass media my friend......

    Keep believing quackery, and I'll keep believing scientific research. But it's going to be real sad if your child ends up with cancer and dies because you ignored chemotherapy.

    You won't be around to let you know. You will refuse treatment.

    The animosity you see towards "scientists" is not based on anger to real science. It is based on anger towards politically motivated "science" that skews results and comes up with new, unscientific terms like "scientific consensus" to replace real terms like hypothesis. Science is a good thing, but when it is crossed with politics, it can't be trusted. You think corporations skew science? What do you think government does? There's big money in data that "says" AGW is real and justifies new taxes on another segment of the economy.

    I prefer giving my money to a corporation over the government. The corporation has to convince me to give them my money, the government just forces me to do it.

Compare the cost of public teacher union schools and their results vs private schools and their results. Public school performance suck and you wonder why Obama and the Hollywood elite send their kids to private schools. It's all about private schools teach kids rather than public teacher unions getting their union paycheck. Do your homework and you will find a union teacher is paid more than a private school teacher yet with less results. Why because the union teacher could care less about teaching a kid, they just want their paycheck and benefits. It's all about them not the kids.
    And you still don't get it. You're ignoring the inherent advantages that private schools have, like a significantly smaller class size, and the fact that since their parents can afford to send them to private schools, that means their parents are making more money - which makes it almost certain that the parents of kids going to private schools have a higher average educational level than do the parents of public-school kids. Both of those are huge advantages. And THEN there's the little-known FACT that private schools can turn away kids that they can't care for, whereas public schools are MANDATED to accept all kids (who don't have a criminal record). For instance, I've been a Foster parent of medically-fragile kids for fifteen years now - and our school has a whole classroom full of such kids. The school is required to spend money on paying for full-time nurses, occupational therapists, and physical therapists for these kids, whereas private schools don't have to provide a dime to spend on such children.

    And the fact that you think that union teachers only care about a paycheck and didn't care about the kids, then WHY are the union teachers where I live striking not for a higher paycheck, and WHY are the teachers in Texas still teaching when 41% of them have to have a second job just to make ends meet! Oh, and let's not forget the teacher at Sandy Hook who gave her life to protect her children - yeah, she was just worried about a paycheck, hm?

    Guy, the very fact that you made such a statement makes it painfully obvious that you are allowing your right-wing echo-chamber-fueled hatred of unions to color your judgement to the point that you can't tell right from wrong.

    Because the southern states have a higher percentage of black Americans, 71% who are born out of wedlock as compared to 24% when "The Great Society" programs began. The stats are clear our prisons and welfare rolls consist primarily of bastards. The increase in bastards is the direct result of liberal policies.

    Newsflash: It ain't conservatives filling up our prisons.


    The liberals succeeded in doing what slavery and Jim Crow could not do; practically destroying the black family. Thanks a lot, liberals.
    Oooooh, wow, the guy gave me a NEWSFLASH!

    In fact, HERE's a list of states ordered by percentage of people in prison. And guess what - the thirteen states with the highest percentages are ALL red states...and none of those states are majority-black. And HERE's a list of states ordered by homicide rate. And guess what - thirteen out of the top fifteen were ALL red states...and none of these states are majority-black.

    Here's a Really Difficult Question for you: you know how bad the murder rate in Chicago is, right? I mean, you obviously listen to right-wing radio a lot, and they're telling you almost every day how deadly it is to spend the night in Chicago, right? So if Chicago - which has such a high percentage of blacks, remember - why is it that the state of Illinois is only eleventh on the list of states by homicide rate, and all but one of the states with higher homicide rates are not-nearly-as-black-as-Chicago RED states, hm? In fact, if you'll look, the murder rate in Louisiana is TWICE that of Illinois!

    Guy, when it comes to race, I know more than most whites. Do you know why part of my name is 'Contrarian'? Because demographically-speaking, I SHOULD be a far-right gun-nut who shares your opinion about blacks...but I'm not - I'm a liberal and I'm proud of it! It's because I am a white male, retired Navy, raised (moderately) racist in the Mississippi Delta...I was the classic White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, and I knew every n-word joke in the book. But after traveling the world I was forced to unlearn so much of what I'd been taught, and I began to see through the racism I'd been taught. And I now know that racism for what it really is: fear of those who look different. It's the same as every other prejudice - against ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual preference...it's ALL nothing more than FEAR of those who are different.

    Yeah, yeah, I know, you'll say you ain't a-skeeered a-nuthin! But if you are racist, you are afraid to the same degree to which you are racist - it goes hand-in-hand. Same goes for all the other phobias you have.

    You make a lot of assumptions, buddy. All I stated are facts. It ain't conservatives filling up our prisons. It is primarily bastards. The fact that blacks are disproportionately bastards is why they are disproportionately imprisoned. I suggest if you care about Americans of all colors ya would support policies aimed at reducing the bastardization rate. If I had fear of those who looked different I would be scared of my wife and son. The fact is it is liberal policies that have done to the black family what slavery and Jim Crow could not do; remove the father from 7 out of 10 African-American homes. Now go back to your soft bigotry of low expectations.
    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly, is to fill the world with fools.
