Re: Good Scan Results at 4 months!

Something odd: my CEA was 3 when I had surgery, but they said the tumor didn't express it so it is useless as a marker. This time I happened to get a printout of my full bloodwork results, and noticed that my CEA was 6. I don't know exactly what to make of it, since the cell-death theory of why che...

Onward with more erbitux and 5fu. “ Stable and no new growth ” sounds like good words. :) I have read that CEA can go up due to tumors die be...

Re: Salami

I'd be willing to bet it was the decades of a sedentary lifestyle full of cigars, morbid obesity of close to 400 pounds, primarily denatured foods, e.g. red and processed meat, sugar, and no DNA-correcting foods (those with chlorophyll) at all, alcohol, and stress.
