New Age Jobs offed himself (through stupidity)

What a dope. So many people end up dead who try quack cures rather
than rely on proven medical techniques.
"Hey tumour, would you stop growing now, I'm eating a macro-biotic
diet?" "And when it metastisizes to the bones, I can blame to tofu
for not stopping it."

(CNN) -- Upon being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004, Apple co-
founder Steve Jobs put off surgery for nine months against the advice
of his doctors while he tried to treat the disease with a special
macrobiotic diet -- a decision he later regretted, his biographer
said.

When asked why he didn't have the surgery right away, Jobs said, "I
didn't want my body to be opened," according to an interview with the
biographer, Walter Isaacson, that aired Sunday on CBS News' "60
Minutes." By the time Jobs was finally operated on, the cancer had
spread to the surrounding tissue, Isaacson said.

Old news, Richard.

Jobs did follow the normal course, plus some cutting-edge stuff, after
trying the pseudo-science for a few months and having the cancer
metastasize.

The interwebs are full of anecdotal "evidence" for folks surviving
cancer by living on Snapple and such, but remember it's only the
survivors telling their stories. A dead man tells no tales, and posts
no blog posts. It's good to have at least one anecdote around showing
how the voodoo let it get worse, then the science at least held it off
for a while, in the same person.

Old news sure, but news that people can learn by. Those new age cures are
bullshit and just give a false sense of well being while the cancer spreads!!!


Oh and BTW, take a f*&kin shower wall street protesters! My god , for a group
of people who insist they are so very intelligent on matters, dont seem to be
capable of simple bodily tasks such as using a toilet or bathing!

Maybe the macrobiotic diet book had a cool cover design?
