Tweeters unload on AARP's 'vomit-inducing, quackerific' story on how Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge 'beat' cancer

AARP magazine has a new piece out featuring singers Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge where the two discuss their fights against breast cancer.  Most of the story is what you’d expect from a somewhat fluffy interview on a horrific subjcet, but what has people incensed on Twitter is this graphic that details how the two “beat” cancer (full-sized version here.)
