(NaturalNews) Chemotherapy can make your hair fall out and cause vomiting. The immune system is actually depressed during chemotherapy. But hair grows back and whenever you stop vomiting you'll be able to eat again. Chemo brain is characterized by diminished mental acuity, memory, and increased fogginess. And it can stay with you long after the last chemo session.

About chemotherapy

Technically, the use of synthetically produced pharmaceutical drugs to kill microbes or cells is chemotherapy. But this term is generally understood as the chemical treatment for cancer. The origin of drugs used to kill cancer cells is mustard gas, the stuff used to kill people in earlier wars before being declared illegal.

At first, very similar chemicals were used on cancer patients by injection or IV, since breathing it in was lethal. There has since been a plethora of newly approved drugs to use as cancer chemo. Nevertheless, they are toxic to all cells, not just cancer cells.

Someone with cancer can look forward to all sorts of debilitating side effects, making it difficult to go on with normal life while undergoing treatments. And there are those ridiculous medical bills to endure (http://www.naturalnews.com/027705_chemothera...).

In fact, Eustice Mullins, author of Murder by Injection: The Medical Conspiracy Against America, asserted in a 1980s TV interview that the cancer industry also helped create the health insurance business for covering those extreme expenses.

So those struggling to make health insurance premiums or keep their jobs in an increasingly jobless culture have very limited options for cancer treatments. The inexpensive treatments that do work without toxicity are not covered, and the cancer industry makes sure its propaganda as the only hope keeps everyone in line - to get their chemo.

That propaganda includes a few different ways the cancer industry skews survival report numbers. If you search chemo cancer survival rates, you'll find all sorts of confusing and conflicting survival and remission reports. But the facts are the cancer industry has a few deceptive tricks up their sleeves when it comes to recovery stats. Read more here (http://www.naturalnews.com/025499_cancer_che...).

They also tend to omit reports of those who die from the chemo itself. Killing cancer cells is the objective. Patients who die are collateral damage in the war on cancer.

About chemo brain

For several years, several chemo patients complained about a mental malaise, which made them feel something wasn't quite right. They usually noticed inability to multi-task or plan, which was part of their work, or a loss of short term memory. Some chemo patients reported vision loss and early dementia.

These complaints of cognitive impairment were usually dismissed as a slow recovery from the shock of cancer or the fatigue from treatments. After all, side effects don't exist except in the imagination of the cancer patient.

Stanford University tested cancer patient cognitive skills and discovered that chemo cancer patients had made the most errors. Magnetic resolution imagery devices (MRIs) clearly showed that the parts of their brains used for planning and memory were functioning poorly. The Stanford study was reported in the Archives of Neurology.

An earlier (2008) joint study by the Harvard Medical School and the University of Rochester Medical Center linked a widely used chemotherapy drug, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), to healthy brain cell deterioration. They recommended trying to determine which cancer patients may be most prone to chemo brain before administering chemotherapy.

Perhaps Big Pharma will come up with some more expensive medications, such as psychoactive drugs that can make them suicidal, to assuage those nagging mental deficiencies that tend to persist even after cancer patients survive their treatments.
