8 Facts About Best Cancer Hospitals That'll Make Your Hair Stand
Cancer is a painful condition that affects millions of people around the world everyday. Cancer doesn’t only affect patients, but also those who live with them, their care takers, their friends and family. When someone is diagnosed with cancer they are referred to a cancer hospital where they are advised to begin a cancer treatment protocol. This is usually done without informing the patients of other alternatives or options and thus forcing them to submit to a lethal kind of treatment that could do more harm than good. In this article we reveal of some of the shocking facts about cancer hospitals:
- Cancer hospitals don’t offer cure:
Most doctors and treatment providers in hospitals will talk about the cancer treatment as a cure. The truth is that conventional chemotherapy doesn’t cure cancer. It limits the spread of cancer, inhibits the growth of new cells and increases the survival rate but it doesn’t radically remove all the cancer cells especially the cancer stem cells that are able to later divide and form new tumors.
- The treatment offered by hospitals causes cancer:
In many situations patients who have been declared to be cancer free would return to the same cancer hospital a few years later with the same or different type of cancer, usually in a more aggressive way. This is because chemotherapy affects the immunity system and doesn’t remove all cancer cells. It kills healthy cells and makes the body more venerable to another attack.
- Hospitals don’t inform patients about all the side effects:
Some people think that after completing a treatment plan they would be back to normal, only to find out that their lives have been affected forever. This is because people working at a hospital will not tell patients that post treatment side effects are irreversible and that a person who gets treated with chemotherapy will have their life changed forever.
- Hospitals give the same kind of treatment to everybody:
No two cancer tumors are similar but the truth is that usually one type of treatment is prescribed to all cancer patients suffering from cancer in that organ. Some patients might be allergic to the treatment or the tumor may not respond and would still be forced to take it because there isn’t any other option.
- Options are not discussed with patients:
A lot of patients will still be unaware of the existence of other options and treatments unless they do the research on their own. Hospitals don’t offer patients such information because they will be only focusing on traditional and conventional medications that might do more harm than good.
- Patients would be advised to stay away from other alternative medications:
Even if an alternative treatment is effective, patients would strongly be advised by doctors working in a cancer hospital to stay away from non-conventional treatments. Their effectiveness would be denied and patients would be prevented from gaining access to them. A patient would have to search for the medicine on his own and have it administered in a private clinic if they want to stay away from chemotherapy.
- Hospitals would continue to give a treatment even if it is not effective:
Even if the treatment doesn’t work to limit the growth of cancer, most hospitals would continue giving the treatments even in higher doses.
- As long as there are patients, hospitals will make money:
If you think that you don’t pay for cancer treatment, then you are wrong. Even if you are insured, the insurance that you pay for is covering your medical bills. Taxes and fees are also used by the government to pay for medical treatments.
This means that someone is always paying for cancer treatments. This ensures that the situation stays as it is because it will be unprofitable for a lot of parties if there was one treatment that would cure cancer.
