    Why are the smartest people also the dumbest....ugg. Turns out Steve Jobs was hoping healing crystals and vitamins would beat cancer, and had he just had surgery early, he would have been fine. He had a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is easily treatable, not the more common form that kills most people affected by it. Perhaps he didn't chant loudly enough for the healing gods to hear him :). It's one thing to be a hippy. But when you face serious, real world problems, you need to step into the real world.

    My opinion of Steve Jobs' "brilliance" just went down the toilet.

    Being in the center is always the right way to go.

    Conservatives believe "prayer" alone cures cancer. Liberals believe roots and veggies will do the trick

    He had pancreatic cancer. If you check the survival rate and the speed at which it will end your life, how would you choose to spend your remaining time?

    Well, there is also a very alarming statistic showing how many deaths are caused by - well, the medical establishment, so I guess eat right, drink right, live right and you will die right...or left, who cares!

    He had a very rare form of Pancreatic cancer that was very treatable. He didn't have the kind that kills most people.

    The authorized biographer said the doctors told him at the beginning if he had done the surgery he would have had a 95% chance of survival.

    He chose to eat grass and leaves to save himself instead

    Yep, totally agree. Even those with millions of dollars die from pancreatic cancer. (see patrick swazye)

    Would you want to spend the remaining months of your life undergoing chemo and surgery taking a million pills, or living life.

    It was he believed in. Belief is also what helped him become successful. So it is easy for people to say after the fact, that he should of done this or that...........
    Basically he believed what he was doing was right at the time.

    The point is that they wouldn't have been his remaining months if he had simply listened to his doctors. Read the two articles I posted links to in the original post.

    He Had the right do whatever he felt - Alternate medicine,Allopathic or Natural is not DUMB - Everyday Normal Medicine Kills People.Pharma Drugs Cause Millions of Deaths - He Lived more than a Full Life - I haven't been to a doctor in 4 years.Because I am always following Alternate Healthcare and eating habits.He simply chose a more natural way of healthcare. You can't knock anything unless you try it.

    I read one of the two articles from The Tech Chronicles I think it was? But you are missing my point, its his life. A man with his resources could have taken any route available to save his life and he chose to "eat grass"? Doesnt make sense.

    It was his life, and his right to do with it as he pleased.

    Besides, if you believe everything you read. I got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.

    Let me get my deed papers.

    Many people survive from cancer by using alternative medicine.
    Many people die from cancer by using conventional treatment.
    Do more researches and you will know.

    Thanks,
