More specifically, you want help with How Effective is Chemotherapy, Really??
so how effective is chemotherapy really the contribution of chemo to a five-yearxa0 survival rate in adults in one report which i’m going to put a link down below in australiaxa0 it’s only 2.3 percent and if you live in the u.s it’s only 2.1 now what does that mean it meansxa0 that if you had a group of people who took chemo at the end of five years only 2.1 percent ofxa0 them would still be alive the rest would be dead now what i’m going to tell you is not meant toxa0 replace your medical care check with your doctor before taking any advice i’m not telling youxa0 in this video not to do chemo i’m just giving you information that i suggest that you need toxa0 research there’s two really important definitions that i want to talk about one is relative risk andxa0 the other is absolute risk when you’re being told the effectiveness of a drug or some treatmentxa0 you really don’t want to know the relative risk you want to know the absolute risk let’s sayxa0 for example before chemo it was found that two people out of 100 die and after chemo one outxa0 of 100 would die what would the relative risk look like well it would look like thisxa0 chemo decreases cancer mortality rate by 50 if you take the chemo you’ll have more than axa0 2x chance of surviving for five years so chemo will double your rate of survival that soundsxa0 very hopeful doesn’t it let’s take a look at what it actually means now if we take a look at thesexa0 numbers okay and if we look at the absolute risk it gives a different picture chemoxa0 decreases cancer mortality rate by one percent okay because we’re going from twoxa0 to one remember these are fractions they’re not whole numbers so drug companies and certainxa0 people that want to make their study look way better than it really is willxa0 always talk about relative risks okay and they won’t mention this right here if you havexa0 cancer and you’re presented with chemo the only thing you want to know is how long will it prolongxa0 your life right here that’s what you need to find out so you ask your doctor if i take this chemoxa0 how much longer am i going to live that’s what you need to know and then after they tell you you wantxa0 to request the study and actually read it yourself to see if it matches up so we have two problemsxa0 number one we want to know what their definition of effectiveness is and number two we want toxa0 know how safe it is because chemo is a poison because if it barely gives you any results and atxa0 the same time it’s adding some major toxicity you want to really weigh out your choices now thexa0 other thing that i would do if i was talking to an oncologist is i would want to know if they arexa0 open to alternative therapy or natural type things because there is some significant science behindxa0 using natural things to affect cancer and you just want to know if they’re open to it and if they’rexa0 open to it great if they’re not all that tells you is they have a fixed idea and they’re unwillingxa0 to look at the information that’s out there and the last thing i want to mention is if youxa0 haven’t seen my interview with Dr. Seyfried on cancer i think you’ll find it veryxa0 interesting check it out i put it up right here

In this video, we’re going to talk about how effective chemotherapy really is. If you’re considering chemo, these are some facts you should know about. Keep in mind that you should always check with your doctor—this is not meant to be advice. Instead, I want to help educate you on the studies available today.
Research shows that only 2.1% of people who do chemotherapy survive after five years.
Let’s take a second to talk about relative and absolute risk.
When you’re being told about the effectiveness of a certain drug or treatment, you want to know about the absolute risk, not the relative risk.
As an example, let’s say that 2/100 people die when not going on chemo and 1/100 people diet after going on chemo.
What would the relative risk look like? The relative risk would say that chemo decreases cancer mortality rate by 50%. Essentially, chemo will double your chance of survival. That sounds very hopeful, right?
But what this data actually means in absolute risk is that chemo reduces cancer mortality rate by 1%. That’s because we’re going from 2 deaths to one death out of 100 people—not 50/100.
Pharmaceutical companies use these numbers to make their drugs look far more effective than they actually are.
This is why it’s always important to always consider the absolute risk—not just the relative risk.
The real question to ask is how long chemo will prolong your life. Ask your doctor about this, and have them give you the studies behind their opinion to see if it matches up.
Many studies out there also suggest that there are other natural ways to battle cancer. Talk to your doctor about these options before you make a decision.
