Since Dr. Shu’s Neurosurgery and Naturopathic Clinic was established seven years ago, almost 8000 cancer patients have come to seek treatment, and out of this number, more than 1800 people didn’t make it. The surprising statistics for the first 20 types of cancer and their mortality rates are shown below:
- Breast cancer had the largest number (644), followed by lung cancer (478), rectal cancer (433) and liver cancer (428). Combining the colon and rectal cancers (803) will move them to the top of the list.
- The lowest mortality was thyroid cancer (3%), and the highest was pancreatic cancer (72%).
- Breast cancer mortality (22%) was comparable to that of the United States and Europe. Out of every five patients, one will die. There are 200,000 new breast cancer patients in the United States every year and 50,000 of them will die.
- For mortality rates less than 30%: brain cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer and, thyroid cancer.
- For mortality rate over 30% but less than 50%: colorectal cancer, lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, gastric cancer, oral cancer, bone marrow cancer, brain cancer, endometrial cancer and, lung cancer.
- The mortality rate over 50% included leukemia, colorectal cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer and, pancreatic cancer.

If you have any question for Dr. Shu, please post in the comment below. I’m not promising you that I’d know the answer but I will try to see if I can find it from Dr. Shu’s website and translate it for you when I get some free time. Standard disclaimer applies.
Note (June 21. 2012): I have replaced the graphs with the new ones due to some adjustment Dr. Shu made on his site. I will add the translated labels of these graphs as soon as I find sometime to create them.
