Questions are now being posed if the late Steve Jobs’ ignorance was the cause of his own demise.
According to Yahoo News Australia, a cancer expert from Harvard Medical School, Ramzi Amri, Jobs was diagnosed with a rare but – usually not fatal – form of pancreatic cancer in 2003. However, he delayed conventional treatment to pursue alternative medicine for nine months – critical time that allowed the cancer to spread.
Mail Online reports that Jobs did this as he wanted to avoid surgery through a special diet. Unfortunately, it did not help and the rapid advance of the tumor forced Jobs to go under the knife.
Amri also described Jobs as hippie back then said he was a skeptic of conventional medicine.
Jobs died of respiratory failure due to complications associated with his cancer on October 6.
