Western medicine is being attacked in Japan, as its practitioners are being accused of treating cancer patients with Western drugs.
The New York Times says the accusations were leveled at physicians who have been prescribing chemotherapy drugs to cancer patients for decades.
The Times cites a report in Japan’s Asahi Shimbun newspaper.
According to the paper, a cancer patient’s treatment with the cancer drug Novartis could be harmful to the patient’s health and cause the cancer to spread.
The patient’s cancer is also considered to be a sign of cancer in the future, the paper said.
Western medicine was once seen as a safe alternative to traditional Japanese medicine, the newspaper quoted doctors and patients as saying.
Some Western doctors were also accused of performing abortions for cancer patients.
According the newspaper, doctors were allegedly performing abortions to treat cancer patients who had lost their uterus, and were unable to have children due to the cancer.
The paper said the accusations against doctors involved in treating cancer could affect the lives of some patients.
Western doctors have a reputation in Japan as being quick to prescribe the cancer drugs Novartistin, Ambrex, and Ambrev.
The drugs were developed to treat various cancers and are used for a variety of diseases.
But some patients say that some of the treatments are ineffective, while others say they are harmful to their health.
The news comes at a time when the Japanese government is facing an increasing number of cancer cases and a growing number of deaths.
Japan has seen an increase in cancer cases of more than 20% in the past decade, according to the World Health Organization.
More than 1,100 people have died of cancer since 2010, according the government.
