The video and article are old but cancer is not.  There's a video and article about how it's okay for cancer doctors to make a profit from chemotherapy drugs being given to their patients.

Here's the link

Yep, the more they push the drugs, the more money they receive!

That's incredible and totally ridiculous.  Like how can i be sure my treatment isn't purely profit based? Is nothing sacred.

I know doctors and nurses get benefits for prescribing drug. How many time have you been in a doctor's office when a drug rep is there.  It might be simple thing like pen, pads or free samples.

Cancer is big business. I can almost guarantee they will never find the cure. Why? Because there's too much money. However, I find it funny that people go to other countries and get cured, a lot of the time just by changing their diet.
