Recovery from chemotherapy

Jody Muntz made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

The request was successful.

From: Jody Muntz

Dear Ministry of Health,
Does chemotherapy treatment cure (as in complete remission) bowel, breast or lung cancers? Or does it treat the symptoms only?
Does chemotherapy treatment cause disease, weaken and make brittle the bones of the person receiving chemotherapy treatment?
Does radiation treatment cause diesase, weaken and make brittle the bones of the person receiving radiation treatment?
Is chemotherapy an antiparasitic treatment?

Yours faithfully,

Jody Muntz
