Re: Bayer found guilty on Roundup

Thank you so much for that Henry . I will purchase that . My niece had indulged a bit and we chatted about a healthier diet . She has taken it fully on board and is now challenging my eating habits . Whilst finding it all slightly amusing I am in return being challenged too!! I will read it over Eas...

Re: Bayer found guilty on Roundup

The thing is though I have a nagging doubt about so much pesticide use getting into the food chain . So much genetic modification on the go I guess the full extent of the implications on diet is unknown . I was explaining to my kids that grapes used to have seeds !! So much has changed . I never hea...

Re: Drinking very hot tea almost doubles risk of cancer, new study says

Jings ...you can’t win . I love my tea . Constant flow . It kind of makes some sense but I have never heard it before . Thankfully I am easily distracted and often find a few tasks to do before I start drinking . But I have it a lot !! So I guess soup is the same !! Trying to think how I will be war...

Hope it all goes smoothly and she makes a quick recovery . It is a very nice thought that cancer is in some lab somewhere .

Re: Dr. wants an ultrasound (liver/gallbladder) SCARED

Hi , Hoping it’s something totally benign and there is every reason to think that at the moment . I know no two cases are the same but my mum had a significant spread to her liver without a single symptom . One tumour alone was the size of a small orange . She has had over ten Mets and not one cause...

Re: Keytruda....Working for MSS....Mutation Burden is the Key

Hi ,
Manchester is one of five locations . It’s open to May 2019 . It’s quite a small trial . Phase1 I think but Phaze 2 maybe in the pipeline .

Maybe only allowing people who have not had success with chemo to enter . Not sure though .

Take care ,

Re: CEA Levels

That does sound tough but others will understand you have a need outwith your control . It’s not easy navigating all these factors . We had a terrible time on the way to a scan once and the fluid seemed to play havoc with my mum . All caught on CCTV too!! Do they use the “ ties” system for ileostomi...
