LD50 of chemo drugs runs around 1.2 times the effective dose is fatal compared to numbers in the dozens or hundreds for common OTC drugs
At least that’s what most people think. Actually, the lethal dose vs effective dose of many common OTC drugs lies at 2-4x the maximum dose. See Acetaminophen for example.
But you are obviously right, some cancer drugs are even given as a lethal dose and then the patient is rescued with antidote.
Regardless, chemotherapy poisons the body anyway, so what's the difference?
A useless analogy when very detailed differences exist between the two.
Chemotherapy is a Faustian bargain that targets actively dividing cells for destruction. It works because during a given time period, a greater percentage of cancer cells than healthy ones are dividing. It's a close contest as the LD50 of chemo drugs runs around 1.2 times the effective dose is fatal compared to numbers in the dozens or hundreds for common OTC drugs.
Laetrile's claimed mechanism is that cancer cells contain high concentrations of factors not present in healthy cells that cause the drug to liberate cyanide mainly within the cancer cells. However this distinction has not been supported by detailed assays during further research. Thus Laetrile indiscriminately harms healthy cells as readily as cancer.
Though this is far from my areas of personal expertise, the information I've gathered from sources I consider adequately authoritative suggests Laetrile's doubters are correct.
I have a great deal of firsthand experience challenging mainstream medicine and the facts and laws around alternative medicine, so mine isn't a naive or trust the establishment take.
Argumentum ad longassyoutubevideum is my least favorite way to study so no I have not seen the parts you asked about. If you know of any good written pieces covering your perspective I would be much more interested.Read More
