    When my daughter Bethany was taken into hiding by the WTS for two months, she was given Arsenic Trioxide and orange juice. It is a treatment for a different kind of leukemia then what Bethany had and is experimental. I have been told that this is a treatment used alot for Jehovah Witness's. I need proof of this so I can file a law suit?

    It seems that the treatment is approved by the FDA, and im many cases many are so desperate they will try drugs when others are failing. I hope your daughter is ok, unless you are able to prove this medicine had ill effects on your daughter, I can't see a judge faulting someone for trying to save your daughters life with drugs approved by the FDA. Docotrs not just JWs try experimental treatments to see if anything may work. I know you have gone through difficult times in the past and I can only hope you can find some peace.
    Arsenic trioxide (AR-sen-ik try-OX-ide) belongs to the general group of medicines called antineoplastics. It is used to treat leukemia in patients who have not responded to other medication regimens. It may also be used to treat other kinds of cancer, as determined by your doctor.
    Arsenic trioxide seems to interfere with the growth of cancer cells, which are then eventually destroyed by the body. Since the growth of normal body cells may also be affected by arsenic trioxide, other effects will also occur. Some of these may be serious and must be reported to your doctor.
