Freelance journalist Jane Feinmann asks who benefits from this sorry performance?

One-time chemotherapy nurse Patricia Peat has been advising cancer patients on putting together non-drug packages to help with their conventional therapy for nearly 20 years.

In a few years it has become an alternative way of treating diabetes and it looks like becoming a valuable addition to the limited arsenal available to tackle cancer.
