50.003

Unorthodox Treatment of Cancer: The Texas Medical Association recognizes the dangers to the health of Texans by treatments for cancer with unorthodox methods that lack a proven scientific basis for effectiveness particularly when these treatments are offered as an alternative to proven, conventional treatments. TMA strongly advises that patients with cancer receive treatment that has withstood scientific scrutiny or is part of a science-based clinical trial (Committee on Cancer, p 132, A-94; amended CM-C Rep. 2-A-10).
