Jobs believed he could order his cancer about

Refused treatment until it was too late

Apple CEO Steve Jobs was so convinced that the universe would do what he commanded that he refused treatment for Cancer because he was convinced he could control it.

According to Jobs' biography, the doctors caught the illness early and it was completely treatable. However Jobs was convinced that the illness was caused by a product of his thinking and wanted to remove it using his will power. After all was he not a genius and had not he defeated the mighty Microsoft?

Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs refused potentially life-saving cancer surgery for nine months, shrugging off his family's protests and opting instead for alternative medicine. But by the time he realised that Cancer could not be fired, the rare form of pancreatic cancer had spread to the tissues surrounding the organ, biographer Walter Isaacson said in an interview with "60 Minutes" on CBS.

Jobs also played down the seriousness of his condition and told everyone he was cured but kept receiving treatment in secret, Isaacson said in the interview. He tries to treat it with diet. He goes to spiritualists. He goes to various ways of doing it macrobiotically and he doesn't get an operation. He thought he felt that if you ignore something, if you don't want something to exist, you can have magical thinking.

We ran this by a new age healer mate who told us that by the time an illness has manifested in a person it is too late for positive thinking. By that stage complementary health techniques will help heal, but you still need conventional surgery, he said. “It seems that Jobs could not let surrender the belief that he was not in control,” our Roman healer told us.

Alright Nick, I like your articles and all but this is kinda stepping over the line.

First of all, how is this news ? Did you really not have anything better to write about ?

Furthermore, you know cancer "treatment" isn't something easy, ever. You've ever seen a person going through chemo ? I did, and judging by the looks of it I'm not sure if death isn't the better choice.

A lady at my work, well her husband has cancer and has been fighting it for a few years now. They said he wouldn't last 6 months, and it's the type of brain cancer that always kills and cant be operated on. Also her daughter had cancer, and they thought it was gone, two months later it is back, and the daughter didn't want the chemo and opted just to let nature take it's course.

I agree Nick, you stepped over the line with this article and this is why you should not write Apple articles from now on. This is not tech news. In addition this contradicts with what Jobs said in his speech at Stanford University.

It takes courage to fight for ones life, the dad reminds me of our grandparents and how they fought bloody wars for us to have a better future, the daughter and jobs, just how easy it is to give up for what others died for.

Steve Jobs was not Jewish, he followed Buddhism.

There's no knowing for certain what would have happened if Steve had fast tracked the surgery, the cancer may have been at an advanced stage when they detected it.

I read similar article in yahoo but Nick just add some colorful stuffs on his version but of the same thought that Steve regret his actions that lead to his early death.

Lol, this is typical in the US, after someone famous dies, all kinds of roumors start to spread, like Michael Jackson, just can't let things go on, have to keep it going. I guess is the good job of the yellow press, and the naive way of thinking of many people.

In regards to the appropriatness of this article: I see a timely opportunity for the journalist to comment in matters where he has exposure and experience. The recent interview with "60 Minutes" on CBS regarding the Tech Giant Jobs, also makes this story relevant. Perhaps someone will benefit from the knowledge and experience of Job's case.
