Escaping Statistics

"In short the statistics we are shown on cancer survival don't distinguish between people who are satisfied with passively accepting the medical verdict and those who mobilize their own natural defenses" -Dr. David Servan-Schrieber

Indeed being a good patient and passively accepting what your doctor tells you will shorten your survival. Past research has shown that a feisty belligerent patient has a better outcome than a passive hopeless one.
