Chemotherapy[edit]

The article entry says:

  • "Chemotherapy as a treatment of cancer often relies on the ability of these agents to preferentially kill or damage cancer cells as opposed to healthy cells."

and points to ref. 7 where this ability of "preferential" damage is denied:

  • "Chemotherapy drugs cannot tell the difference between reproducing cells of normal tissues (those that are replacing worn-out normal cells) and cancer cells. This means normal cells are damaged and this results in side effects." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 145.64.134.241 (talk) 12:47, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
