We wondered when this would come up.
Steve Jobs told his biographer Walter Isaacson, whose book is about to come out, that he regretted delaying surgery for his rare form of pancreatic cancer and, over his wife's objections, for nine months after his diagnosis treated the disease with diet and spiritualists.
He didn't want his body to be "violated," Issacson told "60 Minutes" according to excerpts released Thursday.
He also had unidentified "secret treatments" while telling people he was cured. Whether that means radiation or chemo is unclear but common.
Isaacson said, "I think that he kind of felt that if you ignore something, if you don't want something to exist, you can have magical thinking."
The show will air October 23.
