umm, well it's not like chemotherapy/it's side effects ever killed anyone is it (sarcasm), so i say it's worth continuing with any drug therapy that may lead to a better treatment, everything has side-effects it depends on whether or not they can be overcome. the risks involved with medicines seems to be proportional to the risk of the disease they're treating.

What ever happened to our immune system? Oh yeah over vaccination has suppressed and crippled it and now it attacks our own bodies or can't fight cancer like its supposed to. Pharma ideas seem to maim and kill us one way or another. Quit playing GOD for profit.
