CANCER TREATMENT – IN A PILL?

Occassionaly I branch out of the normal news media and make my way to www.slate.com.

Today I found this article – “Take a Chill, Pill”
Why oral cancer drugs are not all they’re cracked up to be.
By Jessica Wapner. Check it out – it is thoughtful and thoughtprovoking.

Ms. Wapner discusses the pros and cons of “oral drugs” as cancer treatment. Do these
new drugs change the face of cancer treatment?

Although the idea may be great, she argues that a “host of problems means their use could end up in calamity, causing a far bigger headache than lying in a chair at a cancer clinic ever could.”
