Male cancer patients turn to alternative treatments

Oz Research of Note (in progress)

The majority of men diagnosed with cancer in Australia are turning to complementary and alternative medicine to help find a cure, or to improve their health, according to new Adelaide research. A psychology PhD student who analysed a questionnaire of 400 men with various types of cancer shows that many of them modify their diet in conjunction with conventional treatment, as well as turning to meditation, yoga and exercise.
