Question by Poke_the_Bear: Of course there won’t be any Death Panels. Right?
Alarming research is showing that elderly cancer patients are missing out on the breakthroughs in chemotherapy and surgery that have dramatically improved the outcome of younger patients.
In fact, up to 15,000 elderly people with cancer in the UK are dying prematurely every year when compared to the rest of Europe and the U.S., according to a report published by the North West Cancer Intelligence Service (NWCIS) which compiles cancer statistics. . . .
A major concern is that the NHS Cancer Plan, introduced in 2000 to improve cancer survival in the UK, has a cut-off point at 70. This results in hospitals having less interest in the elderly. “Yet half of all those diagnosed with cancer are over 70,” says Dr Tony Moran, NWCIS research director. “It’s an area that has been grossly neglected. . . .”
Not surprised there, Townshend, since you don’t feel the need to actually read.
Come on, Mister Ed, why respond with the hate? I thought you guys on the left were the party of love. I guess it is just the ones that agree with you that are treated better. So sad……
Answer by Townshend is God (a liberal)
Yes, there won’t be any death panels, correct. The rest of the question you lost me.
