We pour millions into cancer research. So where is it actually getting us?

    Franco I am delighted you are hear to be able to tell your story :). But surely there is room for both the natural and conventional treatments. All I’m saying is why isn’t everyone given all the treatment choices so that they can make an informed decision. You are given 3 choices surgery, chemo and radiation what about the natural side of treatment, it is because they cannot patent plants so there is no money in it for the big companies. Once again I’m delighted you are alright. ;)

    Breda do you know how much money is made from alternative medicine, supplements, etc, every year? It’s a huge industry. Don’t be naive. Many of the big pharmaceutical companies also have ‘natural’ wings for selling this stuff to the credulous.

    Lucky you, franco. You do know you are in the minority, don’t you, like the ultra small minority. Now if only we could responses from those who died in agony from the cutting, burning and poisoning from over the past 100 years.
