US:Iran nuclear plan risks cancer patients' lives

I don't even know where to start with this one...

1st: does this make any sense to you?
A senior U.S. envoy says Iran is risking hundreds of thousands of lives by rejecting an offer meant to fuel reactor delivering medical isotopes for cancer treatment.
What ... ? Huh ... ?

The statement doesn't make grammatical sense, let alone diplomatic sense. And how is rejecting the offer to have other countries provide your fuel rods (can you imagine the US being asked to do this) endangering,

... hundreds of thousands of lives ...?

2nd: The idea that radiotherapy is effective is a joke. Think about it: we've had radio- and chemo-therapy for 50 years now. How's that battle against cancer going? Oh... cancer rates are up hundreds of percent?
If Iran never got any radiotherapy machines, they would be saving lives.

Radiotherapy is just one of the ways that the pharma-medico industry gets an average of $150,000.00 out of every single cancer patient in the Wetsern world before they die.
