How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

Both my late wife and I have delt with cancer. I've, so far, survived, Cheryl didn't. We were told that her cancer was "curable", however, no one told us that the chemo drug 5-fluorouacil would literally kill someone with DPD deficiency. That's dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency. DPD is an enzyme that's responsible for meatbolising something like 80% of the chemo drug given to patients.
BEFORE getting a chemo treatment, go to the website I've started to get the word out.
cancercurekiller.info spread the word.
Thanks, and keep up the fight.

I feel terrible they never told you. All they ever told me was "I have to have it" It wasnt the same drug as your wife got. It was a mixutre of 3 different ones, and a strong dose as I had stage 3b breast cancer . Double mastectomy then chemo & radiation. I have heard that the chemo does kill the good cells as well as the bad, but I would of wanted to know that the drug effects could be fatal. Thanks for the update and do the best you can.

Hi Larry; I'm sorry you lost your wife; I lost my dad too- chemo killed his heart & lungs. For us; it was a small price to pay because he was terminal anyway. One day I'll have to see if I can find what chemo he was given in the clinical trial.
I saved your web site; you may want to do some coding so that when people save it; it does not say "Home Page". You also should work on your meta tags. If you want help; send me a private message. You want the bots to find your site & right now it's not coded for that.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
