Suzanne Somers: ‘Chemo killed Patrick Swayze’

September 18th, 2009 // 215 Comments

Suzanne Somers believes chemotherapy is what really killed Patrick Swayze, according to Page Six:

“They took a beautiful man” and “put poison in his body.”
Somers, who has a book about cancer coming out next month, said: “Why couldn’t they have built him up nutritionally and gotten rid of the toxins? . . . I hate to be this controversial . . . but I have to speak out.”

I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure pancreatic cancer is what killed Patrick Swayze. However, unlike Susan, I’ve never formed a dynamic duo of dumb with Pamela Anderson, so what do I know?

    These are the same idiots that believe that vaccinations or mercury causes autism, the earth is flat, the bible is true.

    Fucking idiots!!

    Fuck do I hate these holistic morons. Nutrition builds up the body as well as – shocker – the cancer. If it could be cured by sucking on a root, don’t you think doctors would be shoving trees down our throats? Oh I forgot, doctors are part of the cancer conspiracy.

  4. JADE

    Uuuummmm I thought she was the queen of the thigh machine not a cancer doctor.

  5. YO

    SHE IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

    CHEMO IS THE KILLER. CANCER CAN BE REVERSED.

    Jesus fucking Christ woman… that’s one of the most fatal forms of cancer. Who really gives a fuck what Suzanne Somers has to say anyways? Her claims to fame were playing a ditzy blonde dipshit on tv series decades ago and the thigh master. Continue to be nonexistent, bitch.

  7. daguz

    As I like to say (to my holistic family):

    I get the toxins out every time I piss and shit.

  8. j

    Don’t you guys know about the cure all? All you have to do is shove brokoli up your ass. Try it I swear it works.

  9. Yoda

    Way to try to stay relevant, you pathetic old dried up withered cunt.

    Susan Summers, the face of Three’s Company and one of three stars that made it such a hit comedy show, continues to define time and still comes out looking great!

    Love your show, Susan!

    She should STFU! Chemo has saved a lot of lives. If her child were sick with cancer, would she really trust herbs and colonic cleanses to cure him/her? Patrick Swayze fought a long, hard batter with a deadly disease, shame on her for using his tragic death to garner publicity for her latest book. I have lost any shred of respect I ever had for her. What qualifies Suzanne Summers as a nutritional expert or cancer specialist? Go ahead and write your diet books and promote your thigh master, but this is over-reaching! Yet another celebrity with a run-away ego.

  12. Valerie

    Um, and this is coming from the woman who injected estriol vaginally? and took 60 pills a day? Hormone therapy to fight menopause?

  13. Melissa

    And nice moose knuckle. You’re filthy.

  14. Virrgodoll

    It infuriates me to no end, whenever I see these dumbos give medical opinion, we study for years and years and years to be able to give any kind of advice to sick and ailing people, how can these people have the audacity to question wat is an established medical norm is totally beyond my understanding

  15. Turd Ferguson

    I’d like to give her a holistic cunt punch.

  16. Loose Stool

    Actually a study was published recently showing a much higher than expected rate of cancers (of many types) literally “clearing up” over time in people who didn’t get treatment. But, the spontaneous recovery rates were lower – often a lot lower – than remission rates after chemo/radiation/surgery, etc. So it turns out that’s the real, brutal dilemma: do nothing and have, say, a 25% chance of a spontaneous remission, or live through hell during treatment for a 50% chance of medically-induced remission. Probably it depends on the specific treatment success rates and how sick you’re willing to be during your remaining years.

    But the “natural” cures, especially the dietary ones, are probably just riding along with the spontaneous recovery rates and claiming them as “holistic successes” – probably these people could have been eating bacon cheeseburgers the whole time. Not to doubt Suzanne Somers’ genius-level IQ or anything…

  17. What a stupid b!tch. No MD? Then no comment.

    Dumb@$$.

  18. Drestylz

    Dumb fuckin’ WHORE. STFU!!

    You can’t even act. Go put a thigh-master up your ass and do a few laps.

  19. lol

    Another irrelevant “celebrity” attempting controversy to be put back in the spotlight.

    gtfo Kanye.

  20. Seeing that she’s hanging out with Pamela Anderson and seems to know everything about medical science maybe she can tell her how to cure her Hep C without drugs, too.

  21. Jason L.

    Well I know where to go if I get pancreatic cancers. Fuck the doctors and all their years of studying and knowledge of the human body and medicine.

  22. dude_on

    Did fish declare this “Stupid Bitch Friday?” I love these new themes.

  23. jack tR.I.P.per

    I would so crush that pussy still.

  24. ROUGH daddy

    Is she misguided or dumb, I don’t think she’s the latter. Certainly not guilty by association.

  25. On

    Maybe the chemo did kill him… but if it hadn’t, the cancer would have anyway. Eating spinach would not have helped.

  26. Molly

    Why when someone mentions holistic care do people freak out? There is validity to what she is saying, though it is not right to make assuptions as to what would have helped Patrick. Holistic medicine does have a place in healthcare. People need to be more opened minded! Personal responsibilty plays a big part in natural health, and people love their cheese burgers far too much to try! Other cultures are far more accepting of these methods, like everything else we Americans need to catch up!

    In a few hundred years humanity will look back on our learned doctors as ignorant savages. The same way we look back at the doctors of the 16th 17th and 18th century. This man has too much blood, we must remove it. Way to kill George Washington dumbass.

  29. bug butt

    It’s possible she’s right. Chemo is harsh stuff and it can kill you, but so can cancer without any help at all from chemo. It’s certain he’d have died soon (maybe not sooner, but pretty darn soon) if he hadn’t been treated. Chemo was the only thing that had ANY chance of saving his life.

  30. Leila

    this woman is PATHETIC. i have loathed her since she admitted letting her husband [her son's step-father] treat her son like SHIT for his entire childhood. she failed to protect her child from being made to feel like an unwanted step-child in his own home. in this case, if she wants to give advice, let her study medicine for 4 years, do 3 years of residency, then 3 additional years of fellowship, and THEN maybe she can give her ass-backwards opionions. and for the record, she DID get traditional medical intervention in treating her own cancer, and THEN went the holistic route. STUPID.

  31. J.Reum

    ok this is bull shit!!!!!! people who say it’ll just clear are fucking dumb shits! an cancer will eventually try to take over your whole body an also make them feel like shit for there live. iif u never had cancer then u have no fucking idea what the hell ur talking. i blame chemotherapy on me still being alive today.

  32. PsyKo

    she’s nuts… and apparently not the only one, reading from the comments here…

  33. Robert

    Actually, she is right.

    Chemo is a last-resort treatment. How it works, basically, is that they treat the entire body with powerful toxins in an effort to kill the cancer dies before the rest of the body gives out. It is a last resort.

  34. poopster

    she might be old, but id hit it twice, and maybe one more time for good measure

  35. Guy who wants celebrities to shut the fuck up

    Shut the fuck up you stupid bitch. When did you become an Oncologist? I’m sick of these washed up celebrities reclaiming their 15 minutes by coming up with some asinine “i’m a professional…” bullshit. People, stop listening to these idiots, and trust in the people that actually spent time learning about their professions.

  36. Jrz

    I see she’s stopped Thigh Mastering….She could use a Boob Master a little bit.

  37. penny

    She DID cure her own cancer with diet. Chemo DOES kill. Do some research. Watch the video “food as medicine” on aol video. It will totally change your perspective, and your life.

    Suzanna Somers is just speaking out like many more need to do. Don’t be a puppet for the major drug companies like the majority of doctors are nowawdays. Please do your own research and think for yourselves.

    “…who has a book about cancer coming out next month,”
    Shameless exploitation of Swayze’s death

  39. common knowledge

    Survival rates (living for 5 years after diagnosis) for white men with pancreatic cancer range between 4 and 6 percent. It’s one of the most aggressive forms.

    Divine intervention would probably not have saved Swayze’s life. Sommers needs to stop hyping alternative techniques (hormone replacement therapy included) and do some research before writing books. I’m scared for the people who believe her.

  40. Dee

    What an ignorant moron. If it were that easy I doubt doctors would have developed chemo on the first place.

  41. Farty

    Toxins, that sounds very scientific. What med school did she go to?

  42. Crusty

    Chemotherapy kills the disease only slightly faster than it kills the patient. Sadly, chemotherapy / radiation is still the gold standard in treating most cancers and nothing Suzanne Somers says is going to change that.

    What truly infuriates me about Somers’ efforts is that she’s targeting a desperate audience who, because they have cancer, are willing to try just about anything to improve their odds, including buying a book claiming to provide a path to treatment. This insidiously wretched bit of marketing, coming on the heels of Patrick Swayze’s death, has guaranteed Somers a first class ticket to hell.

    Pancreatic cancer is almost always terminal because detection is so difficult. Patience show a variety of symptoms that could be anything from an ulcer to a slipped vertebrate. Once specific conditions are eliminated, doctors finally order a CT-Scan and find Stage 4 cancer that has already spread to the liver and spleen. At that point, little can be done other that fighting the traditional battle using the traditional methods – and failing virtually each and every time.

    Suzanne Somers, in her quest to make money off the death of a celebrity, may cause patients having cancer other than pancreatic to delay proper treatment in hopes that her ridiculous ideas will help.

    One wonders how many people will die as a result.

  43. Kelley

    To all you idiots and haters, she is RIGHT … and it killed Farah Fawcett, too … cancer can be healed by diet and toxin removal … she is right and is living proof – she healed her own cancer without chemo OR radiation. It can be done and I know of many people who have done it. Fuck you guys, it can be done. And everyone has toxins that cause all kinds of diseases, due to the shitty, diseased and processed American diet and lifestyle. What kind of asshole would wish death upon ANYONE ??? Read The Cure by Dr. Richard Brantley. That was a sick comment, Fish, you Cock Hat !!!

    There are natural cures for anything that comes along, its just a matter of finding them. And what works for some, doesnt work for others. And you dumbasses who think Doctors and Drug companies are not in bed together and making it worse on most of us, well, your just totally ignorant. Calling it a conspiracy just raises a red flag with people who cant get past that word and look at the real problem with the issue. Its those type of people who, unfortunately, were convinced that voting for Obama was the best for us.

  47. missywissy

    However, if she believes in this enough that she admits it’s a strong statement to make, and risking her reputation by doing so, maybe she actually knows something. She’s a decent person and she put a lot on the line coming out with the gloves. I praise her for going against the machine. Being she had cancer, I’m sure she has the right to take it personally that a fellow actor died of it and maybe didn’t have to. Nobody on this site has the right to call her names for this. However, she better get to healing a lot of pancreatic cancer patients to prove her point!

  48. Kelley

    Chemo is built on the mustard gas premise … do your fucking homework, you ignorant asses … also buy a book called The Cure for All Cancers. People like Suzanne Sommers threaten the billion-dollar chemo industry when they speak out. Patrick Swayze coiuld have healed himself but instead chose chemo … has anyone on here ever heard of Essiac ? Google it and shut your fucking mouths.

  49. NobodySpecial

    This is the woman who sells garbage like oxygenated water and “sommersized” racks of ribs but made with “raw sugar” so they are good for you.

    Using Patrick Swayze to sell more of her useless crap should get her bitch-slapped like Kanye did for his antics. This woman has made millions of dollars selling garbage to morons and now wants to sell a worthless book that will convince desperate, dying people to give up real medical resources for some nonsense detox program. She should shut the f-ck up and just go back to selling her crap on cable to lonely red neck women.

  50. nahhh

    What Crusty said.

    And you truthers begging people do “do some research” need to take a little of your own medicine, so to speak, and research all the data out there, not just the data that backs up your existing ideas about doctor/drug company conspiracy. On the other hand, if you do get cancer I *hope hope hope* you only treat it naturally and stay out of the hospitals.
