How Does Chemotherapy Treat Breast Cancer?

348 ratings | 25381 views
This week Reactions takes a look at the the chemistry and science of how chemotherapy and other cancer treatments work concerning breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Fortunately, the rate at which we’re learning about this disease means patients have a lot more treatment options and far better chances of survival than they did 100 years ago. In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Reactions describes what’s changed about how we treat breast cancer and what patients can expect in the future.

Chemotherapy kills people faster than the Cancer itself, for it Destroys Our Immune System - But Relax! - Any Cancers, Heart, Brain and Any Other Diseases can be Wiped Out along with Big Pharma, FDA and the medical establishment, we will become Infinitely Healthy and by that - Immortal, for Infinite Health = Immortality (8,500 years guaranteed) - By doing just an exercise for a minute a day, that Cures and Prevents any Diseases, known on Earth [any Cancers, Diabetes, Infections (HIV/AIDS, HPV, Hepatitis (A,B,C), Colds, Flues, Malaria, Ebola, Cholera, Dengue, etc.), Polio, TB, Cardiovascular, Cerebrovascular, Genetic, Allergic, Chronic, Autoimmune (Lupus, MS, etc.)], even Aging and Radiation Disease, for every cell of our bodies is shielded 100% from any external/internal (genetic) detrimental impact (any Viruses and any other Pathogens are killed the moment they touch us) - Doing this exercise for just a minute a day, in less than a month everybody will become Infinitely Healthy, Radiation-Proof (fit for deep space missions) and Immortal - Like the Gods who created us humans - I will describe my Discovery to everyone, who sends me an E-check for One Thousand Dollars - Not much to pay to live An Endless Life Without Cancer, Heart, Brain and Any Other Diseases and being able to Fly Safely To The Moon, Mars and Beyond.

Chemo Therapy is the mustard gas of Hospitals

Thanks for this. My daughter has TNBC so I would be interested to know what treatments are available for this apart from Chemotherapy
Reactions (3 months ago)
Glad to help!

You have a very sweet and innocent voice, and you present quite an upbeat scenario while briefly mentioning drawbacks to chemo/radiation therapy. If you yourself developed cancer and went through these treatments I wonder if you would sound the same afterwards, if you indeed did survive such medical ordeals. I wish you cancer-free luck in your career, but do keep in mind that there are alternative treatments available if you should ever need them. I have used two which worked for me. I have been cancer free for twenty years now and never lost my hair or became weak and nauseated. I am enjoying the best health of my life because of lifestyle changes. It sounds strange to say it, but I have to thank cancer (not medicine) for being able to make this statement. I am glad not to be contributing my body to the financial growth of BIg Pharma and many aspects of the practice of medicine.

Can you share a bit more about what you did? Also, I'm sure stage and type makes a difference as well.

Why are we still treating cancer the same way when we know the devastating outcome? My mother was diagnosed in September 14 and passed on March 18. Why put people through the regular series of test, MRI, Scans, Chemotherapy, and ending in palliative treatment of morphine? I can only think of one word "insanity" (definition: doing something over and over expecting different results -Albert Einstein) . Is this just about $ if so this is very sad. I just watch this video that aired on ABC NEWS, about a women who has Metastatic Breast Cancer who is winning her fight against cancer using an alternative solution. https://youtu.be/H4DFq78n0GM

nicely explained...! :-)
In the future, there will be more and more treatments for cancer, they will cost more and more money and will be used on more and more patient because there will BE more and more cancer patients.

Almost nobody talks about the probable connection of aluminum base deodorants with breast cancer, the human diet has changed since the 1800's but it'll be important to notice that the percentage of breast cancer keeps growing. Could be linked all this aluminium deodorants we usually apply?

Whenever you think of a reason why there is more cancer now than in the past, it's usually irrelevant compared to the fact that there is more cancer because people grow older thus increasing the rates of cancer in the population.

FUCK cancer

Cancer cells thrive in an Acidic enviroment, one of the best ways to stop cell growth would be to cut out dairy and eggs, stop eating meat, and have a whole food plant based diet. To alkalanize your body. Some plants have chemicals that kill cancer cells such as avocados.

Draco Pheonix thank you for sharing your information. God made our bodies to heal. God gave us fruit, vegetables and herbs to heal ourselves. So many wonderful herbs have helped many people to heal. God bless you!

Why not just devour a bunch of tums then?

The alkali diet thing isn't true

I never said Avocados cure cancer. Your the one mis interpreting what im saying. Plants DO Have cancer fighting chemicals.

I'd love to see prostate cancer, a more dangerous condition due to lack of research when compared to breast cancer, get this much attention
William Tael (1 year ago)
I wouldn't like to see prostate cancer... it's probably gross.
