The Oncologists Credo: Do as I Say, Not as I Do.

In the new issue of Nature Medicine, it was mentioned that over 400,000 people in the U.S. alone are treated with chemotherapy every year. Yet, in a famous survey of 64 oncologists at the McGill Cancer Center in Montreal, 58 of them—more than 90%—said that if they or their family members had cancer, there was no chemotherapy program that they would undergo. They said that all chemotherapy programs are ineffective and have an unacceptable level of toxicity.

A similar survey by the Los Angles Times found that 75% of the oncologists surveyed considered chemotherapy and radiation as unacceptable treatments for themselves and their families. These oncologists only prescribe these treatments for their patients because it is the standard of care. They would not take it themselves because they know chemotherapy is miserably difficult, destroys the immune system, and there is no firm basis on which to select a drug.

Our advice: Before agreeing to any cancer treatment advised by your oncologist, ask him to level with you: would he be comfortable undergoing the same therapy himself, and/or would he advise an identical treatment for a family member or other loved one. Be guided accordingly.
