Oh my goodness, you wouldn't believe what I have been reading about. Radiation treatment to the pelvis. The damage it causes is horrible.
Over the years I have had many talks about diet and lifestyle with Mom and Dad. They eat out daily ever since my brothers and I have moved out. Even before that they ate out often by themselves. It is a life-long habit. The consequences of it is Dad has dementia and Mom has cancer. I told mom when Dad was having challenges going on the diet was affecting his brain. There are so many food additives that are triggered to it. Most food is really a substance that looks like food, but really isn't food. It is edible and it tastes good - but it harms our bodies. It does not nourish us. They didn't care. Now they are faced with the consequences. Dad is like a toddler wearing diapers. Mom is wearing diapers too. She takes care of dad to the best of her ability while trying to heal from radiation poisoning from the cancer.
They live across the US and they don't want to move closer to me, so I can't help them. I can only wish they were here. Due to my own health issues, I stay in California working on me. Each day I put my health first. I make fresh healing juices, herbal teas, exercise, research, and I do health promoting things. If I don't no one will come save me. We must save ourselves.
Dr.s label radiation damage as a disease instead of calling it radiation damage. It takes the blame off of them. Even though they know they administered a treatment that kills. It makes it sound like it is the patient's fault.

The bottom of the article says, "Although it is an uncomfortable notion we must not shy away from iatrogenic causes of patient debility." HOW DARE THEY.
That means they acknowledge that the Dr.s are causing the patient's poor health. Dr.s know what they are doing to patients. They know they are slowly killing our loved ones.
Oh Mom, why did you choose this treatment. I bet the Dr.s didn't tell you the consequences.
A treatment is not a treatment when it has an 80% failure rate.
