Citizen Science: Reporting of FASTING and Chemo Results

Postby DK37 » Sat Oct 01, 2016 10:04 am

Related to my recent Blog post on Fasting & chemotherapy side effects: I have already heard back from a number of fellow patients who have had the same positive side effect results experience as me (and also had fast/no-fast control experiments to indicate fasting cause/effect).

If after getting medical advice from your MD (!) you have tried fasting, please share your experiences by adding it to the comments **ON MY BLOG SITE** (you can use pseudonym if you want for privacy) to have all the responses in a single thread.

Citizen-science n=1 trials with real-time reporting of results. Not as ideal as a randomized trial to prove cause and effect but I still love it!
