    Suzanne Somers thinks Patrick Swayze could have been alive today if he would have used alternative methods to treat his pancreatic cancer instead of chemotherapy.

    The former “Three’s Company” star, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1991 and rejected chemotherapy in favor of natural treatments, reportedly told Toronto-based columnist Shinan Govani that it was Swayze’s chemotherapy treatments, not pancreatic cancer, that ended his life prematurely.

    “They took this beautiful man and they basically put poison in him,” she reportedly said. “Why couldn’t they have built him up nutritionally and gotten rid of the toxins in his body? I hate to be this controversial. I’m a singer-dancer-comedienne. But we have an epidemic going on, and I have to say it.”

    Swayze died on Monday at age 57.
