Hum - I think a lot of folks around here have invested in some platinum more expensive (and perhaps valuable) than the metal itself! If you have some platinum, maybe I can teach you how to make your own Oxaliplatin? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :oops:

Bring it on GrouseMan.....I will share with my friends! :lol: :mrgreen:
I dare say the COST of OUR OXI will beat the Pharmacies FDA issued stuff!!!!

I am still holding off sending that one to hubby with my suggestion :wink:
He usually sends me some snake oil crap that gets sent to him (as a private joke) about "we have the CURE to CANCER, the GOVT & FDA doesn't' want YOU to know about"
So I will save this as a response. We have to find something to keep our spirits UP

cheers!

If you want to keep your spirits up, you can send me some of that platinum, and I can invest in some good Texas property for a garden :shock:
