Treat cancer patients with alternative medicine, say EU groups

The European Union (EU) - often seen as the scourge of alternative medicine - may suddenly become its champion

The European Union (EU) - often seen as the scourge of alternative medicine - may suddenly become its champion. It is considering a call to include CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) therapies in the care - and treatment - of cancer patients.
Two European Parliamentary groups - MEPs Against Cancer and MEPs for CAM - are campaigning for the European Commission and parliament to "actively support" the integration of CAM practices into Europe's healthcare services, especially for the care and treatment of cancer patients. The two groups - headed by MEPs Sirpa Pietikainen and Alojz Peterle - are also calling for more funding for research into alternative cancer therapies.
The call follows a meeting with some of Europe's leading alternative practitioners who explained to the two groups how they are already integrating CAM therapies into their treatment of cancer patients.
A survey recently revealed that a third of cancer patients throughout Europe are already using CAM therapies in some part of their treatment.
