    I like your comment that criticizing chemo as a treatment for breast cancer is analogous to criticizing the war — you’re not criticizing the troops, just the way they are being led. My guess it that most women are so scared of this disease, that if they are diagnosed with it they want to do something ASAP, and are more apt to follow the advice of doctors who have gone to medical school than they are of lay people who have done copious amounts of research, particularly if that advice differs so radically. There is probably also a sense of being more able to leave it behind once the treatment is finished, and a feeling that they did all they could to fight the disease. All that being said, I admire the way you have been speaking out and taking control of your treatment on your own terms. How can we make you an authority so that others (ie the mainstream medical establishment) will be more willing to listen?
