    retarded deluded parents who are so stupid that they don't deserve to have kids.

    there is a good reason why "alternative" practices are bloody alternative.
    if they have so apparent effects, it would already be bloody mainstream. why won't people just realise it?

    just because it seems like an easy way out, people become stupid enough take that path over the path they should be taking. they pick up things like homeopathy, some stupid vegan treatment for cancer.

    and when they die, they blame everything, except themselves.

    edit: this documentary explains... everything.

    Depressing what some people even well educated can believe.
    Steve Jobs tried alternative medicine for his cancer till it got to a very advanced state, effectively throwing away years of his life.

    No, it is no about education.

    It is a very human and normal fear. All of us would be similarly afraid if the doctor told anyone that he got cancer.

    The reason people chose non-standard alternative healing (some are questionable) is because the current accepted medical method is not 100% fool proof.

    Chemotherapy has terrible side effects. The patient suffers.

    And if the patient is super rich, then there will be numerous charlatans who will seize the chance to suggest alternative treatments and scam millions $.

    Today walked past St Andrew's Cathedral opposite Peninsula Plaza and near to City Hall MRT. A large banner extolling a worship service of "healing" was shown.
    Certainly other various religions have their own versions of "spiritual healing". In the Amazonian forest, shamans do more or less the same.
    To their respective believers, this is the REAL thing. The verdict is still out as to whether it is true.

    Some times the treatment can cause severe damage. Chemotherapy has terrible and cruel side effects. The patient suffers.
    Is about picking the lesser of evils. Have you ever seen the biohazard symbol on those packets chemotherapy cocktail?

    One of my relative got a pretty nasty scar across her arm after accidentally coming into contact with antineoplastic agent due to mishandling.

    U can't say that alternative med is total crap. Do you take Chinese herbs? It's been around thousands of years, even before western med came into the world. And now even the western world is recognizing eastern med, after doing scientific research on the herbs.

    What I'm saying is that western med only treat the symptoms of the disease. They don't cure you. Alternative med cures you as a whole.

    People who don't get healed and eventually die, has problems that are fueling the disease. If u study psychology, u will know our brain is a very powerful organ. It can save you or make u die. If u keep thinking everyday that u got cancer, u will eventually get cancer. What the brain thinks, it will convert into emotions and emotions will convert into reality for you.

    So if a person goes for whatever treatments, it will be useless if his mental state of mind is in negative. No amount of med will save him.

    This is what alternative med is all about. It heals your brain, mental state, emotional state and even your past dark secrets that are giving negativity inside you.

    And we all know food plays a big part in healing. Vegan diet is good. It's not a voodoo. Read up more on it. Many olympic gold medals winners are strict vegans.

    And there are also reasons why western med cannot accept alternative med into mainstream. The reason is simple. It's all about money and economics. Why are the big pharma companies earning millions? Who controls the FDA?

    It's the same reasoning as why alternative energy such as solar, water, etc is not widely accepted though it works? Because the big oil companies are stopping it.

    It's all about money and economics

    Herbs and traditional medicines is one thing, homeopathy and other apparently baseless stuff is what pisses me off.
    They try to explain their efficacy by pseudoscience which is all bs.
