Re: Anti-Oxidants and Chemotherapy

This is a fairly new report on the issue. It seems that antioxidants MAY make cancer cells stronger particularly during chemotherapy.

Hoping this kid finds the cure

One interesting thing about this drug Mitoxantrone, is that is a readily available MS drug which is very inexpensive compared to the usual CC meds. Hoping for his continued enthusiasm in his research. http://college.usatoday.com/2014/07/29/university-of-wisconsin-student-has-sights-set-on-curing-col...

I think it's...

Re: True or False - Information from oncologist

Overall it sounds very similar to what my oncologist told me. Yes, people react differently to the various treatments, some have a real hard time, some don't. They always look at overall averages, and Folfox seems to be tolerable for the majority of patients. It's not by any means a cake walk. But, ...

Re: Cow virus causes colon cancer? Nobel laureate says maybe

I believe that not eating beef, besides the potential health benefits, is one of the best things we can do for the future of the planet. Beef production is causing massive stress on the planet. The amount of land needed for grazing tens of millions of heads of cattle is astonishing. Cutting down nat...

Cow virus causes colon cancer? Nobel laureate says maybe

Very interesting read. A viral connection to cancer has been in the radar for a while. Studies are advancing. Another reason to put down that hamburger this July 4th, plus the fact that beef production is probably the biggest reason for climate changes in modern times. Al http://blogs.scientificamer...

PSK different from VPS

VPS and PSK are different extracts of the mushroom used, Coriolos Versicolor. PSK is the extract which has shown the best results, particularly in Japan. This is the study which refers to the VPS extract causing an increase in the size of the tumors. At the end it is mentioned how PSK had the opposi...

Re: PSK

I use the same source as the others, 3600 mg/day, 3 capsules in the morning 3 later in the day. It's important to take them on an empty stomach I've been told. I take three first thing in the morning, and the others between lunch and dinner.

Re: squatty potty

Absolutely recommend this. I use them and it does what it says, it seems that squatting to poop, as people have done through millennea is the best way to properly evacuate all of your waste matter. You will feel like you've cleared yourself fully after. I have improvised though, It's fairly easy to ...

Re: Poke Me With A Fork...

You sound like a perfect candidate for HAI at MSK. Liver limited metastases and you appear to be in fairly good health still, the heart issue can probably be managed by your team. Also, although Dr. Kemeny is the head cheese in there, ALL the oncologists work with her and use the pump, so you don't ...

Here are the abstracts for this years meeting, lots of info, but keep in mind that most of this scientific lingo most of us don't fully understand. Still, lots of relevant information as to trials, results of new drug combinations, etc.

Re: It is SOOOOOO much worse than thought .....

It's hard to hear this, and it most be overwhelming for you and your family. I would, in your case start to think totally outside the box. It seems obvious that conventional therapies are not working for your husband, there are options outside in the alternative world that may help, though it's risk...

Re: new here...Any hope?... probably spread to liver

Hi and welcome, to the club none of us ever envisioned joining, but nonetheless a place for great information and support. In my opinion you don't need to upend your life and move to NYC. The goal is to be able to have a complete resection, R0 resection, of your liver tumors followed by a course of ...
