That old “if there were a cure for cancer, wouldn’t all the doctors be using it?” an M.D. employs in his rant I just read against all non-toxic treatments is a farce.

Yesterday over 10,000 people read the blog, and I’m grateful for the comments made here, especially by those who have battled cancer, or been the primary support for a child, spouse, or parent.
