No, I dont have to consider that for those people who are not cured by the treatment and that is over half of them. Those who are cured may have benefited from the treatment.
Those who are not cured have suffered (I am led to believe that there is a lot of suffering involved) for nothing.
I also believe that is over half of the people who opt to take chemo, so statistically opting to take chemo is going to be the wrong choice for most people, we just dont know if we are the one it will work for or not, and what is at risk (your life) makes it worth taking a less than evens bet.
As it is a less than evens bet most people would have, in the final result, been better off opting for homeopathy (prayer or anything else harmless) instead.
At least a homeopath gives you something to make you get better....
Then maybe you could furnish us with some proof ?
I dont think that you need proof that a homeopath gives you something that is intended to make you get better, the point was not that it would make you get better just that they give you something! I had drifted back on to the subject of the thread and just making the parallel with helmets again.
Helmets and homeopathy are "doing something" when "something" must be done. It has to be done even without proof that it works, the point which Horizon was (I think) making.
