Cancer treatment side effects
Chemotherapy and radiation therapy cause severe side effects to cancer patients, as the chemicals and radiation used in these treatments affects also healthy tissues.
One of the most problematic side effect is the development of anemia, meaning low blood count that causes a reduction in the oxygen levels supplied to the body, which leads to reduced energy production in the body. Low energy weakens the physical and mental capacity of the patient, as well as his immune system, which may reduce the patient's survival chances. Cancer patients treated with Singlet oxygen-enriched air are energized, experience an improved general feeling and a reduction in the side effects, short term like nausia, or long term like anemia, resulting from the chemotherapy and radiation, with shorter time of recuperation between treatment sessions.
