Notice that Sagan tried 3 times. He didn't die on the first try. He had a form of the disease which is nearly impossible to deal with and yet he was strong enough to try 3 times.

A long time ago medicine learned that case studies are junk. The difference between individuals in a population is amazing. That is why case studies were abandoned long ago. To point to one example of a treatment and make a claim about the treatments is a long abandoned practice. It's considered a naive practice.

Except the case study happens to be a famous skeptic and beloved scientist who wanted to live, who spent a lot of money on his treatments, who believed in, and preached faith in science and medicine. What would he say today? What would he preach today if he were alive?
And while this is a case study, the group studies of the consequences of chemo and radiation therapy reflect similar patterns of lethal consequences. I'll be posting some eventually.

Context, ND, is like a map of reality. You are at a board that analyzes and criticizes the nonsense of skeptics. You are in a thread about Carl Sagan. We are discussing Carl's public medical history and his faith and advocacy in the treatments .. which caused his death.

Actually you have no evidence about the cause of death. You have Kevin nonsense-drivel for the most part.
So where are the studies you were going to post?

Carl Sagan died?

I always thought Carl was about to meet the Martians sometime soon.

Maybe Carl is still alive. Has anyone checked his coffin? He could be like Schrodinger's cat. With the money he paid for his treatments, he could have been buried on Mars.

Are you going to post some studies?
