Reuters has surprisingly reported some scientific findings that are not usually released to the public. These findings show a consistent correlation between childhood exposure to medical radiation and cancer drugs with having heightened risk of dying of a heart attack, stroke or another cancer decades later.
According to a recent study conducted by Birmingham University (England), those who have cancers as children, and manage to survive treatments, have extremely high chances of premature deaths.
After monitoring 18 000 childhood cancer survivors, the university documented that these people tended to die early from a range of ailments including heart attacks, strokes, and of course, new cancers. Premature deaths were 11 times more likely than for the general population.
Lead researcher Raoul Reulen, from Birmingham University, described new cancers as a “recognized late complication of childhood cancer”.
Perhaps more shocking than the admission that these “complications” were caused by previous cancer treatments (rather than genetics), is that this study actually got published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Studies which reveal embarrassing figures are usually prevented from being printed in the medical journals because these journals have traditionally embraced scientific dishonesty concerning all studies which lend any credence to alternative medicine.
So, for the first time, we must commend JAMA for printing the truth. The Reuter’s News Service likewise gets our applause and gratitude for doing the right thing, and for printing the truth.
