    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.

    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?
