Cancer survivor Suzanne Somers believes 'poison' and 'toxins' killed Patrick Swayze. And that it wasn’t cancer, it was chemotherapy.

Suzanne Somers thinks she knows what killed Patrick Swayze, and it wasn’t cancer — it was chemotherapy, she has told National Post in an interview

“They took this beautiful man,” says Somers, a cancer survivor who has a book about the disease coming out next month, “and they basically put poison in him.” Somers herself rejected chemotherapy, against the advice of her doctors, and beat her breast cancer.

“Why couldn't they have built him up nutritionally and gotten rid of the toxins in his body?” Somers continues. “I hate to be this controversial. I'm a singer-dancer-comedienne. But we have an epidemic going on, and I have to say it.”
