Bob Marley also tried alternative medicine which hastened his death.


I didn’t know that. I used to be a big fan of alternative medicine until I realised that it’s all a bit bogus.

Is this like herbal remedies and stuff? Obviously that doesn’t work.

This is pure conjecture on my part, but it’s plausible that Jobs sought alternative treatment due to his cancer being of the pancreas. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive cancers that I’m aware of, with an average life expectancy of about 5 years (with Western medicine).

A decision only Jobs could have made.
