    As per Dr. John Tallalay; "Biochemical, molecular and cell biological techniques are being used to develop strategies for reducing the risk of developing cancer by identifying phytochemical enzyme inducers in edible plants and evaluating their efficacy in cells, animals, and humans."  He does not say that that "green plants have normalized cancer cells".  He says that scientists are using all the science te...

      I am healthy after a diagnosis of metastatic kidney cancer, with a large tumor and hundreds of mets in my lungs.  Because I was able to find an FDA-approved treatments which helped stimulate my immune system--not just eating brussel sprouts and oiling myself--I am healthy today.  The cancer you have did not start just because of a lack of vitamins or a perfect diet.  It likely started with some very ti...

          Dear Mike, I know how desperately you want to help your father, as I remember my own shock when I was diagnosed with Stage IV kidney cancer with 100s of lung mets.  That was ten years ago, so obviously, I am doing well.  It is beyond important that your father be seen by an oncologist with lots of experience with KIDNEY cancer.  A good general oncologist will likely not have had many patients with kid...

            I cannot compare the two facilities' treatments without knowing more about the treatment being given now.  However, the City of Hope is known to be excellent and does a number of clinical trials and works to provide the latest therapies, based on the newest research.  It is a relatively small hospital, but devoted entirely to cancer.  The atmosphere is calm and caring, loving in a very competent way.&n...

              http://www.cityofhope.org/colorectal-cancer This is a link to the website of the City of Hope.  Please take a look and see if this does not sound more like a well-established and well-respected place.  The people there are wonderful, from the nurses and doctors to the people in physical therapy, helping with paperwork, and parking cars.

                Rray363, Reading a bit deeper into your posts, I am especially concerned for you and your daughter.  I have been treated at the City of Hope in LA County--just about 20 minutes away from Pasadena--for both my kidney cancer, now in  remission (or cured) and my more recent breast cancer.  It is a wonderful place, and concentrates on cancer alone.  The Bahamas-AIT also promotes that it solves malaria...

                  I am very concerned to hear that you may be considering this clinic, which claims to offer immune therapy--but have no history of real clinical trials or comparisons as to their success.  I have spent several hours reading and listening to their promos, and note that everything is very general.  For example, Dr. Kevin Bethel talks of "starting trials", "impressive results with certain cancers", though no re...

                    suggest you post this on www.smartpatients.com, after an easy registration for more options on clinical trials.  Everolimus is approved, very helpful for some patients, though with no guarantees.  Cabozantinib is an immune-stimulant based treatment,not yet approved, but with a lot of people optimistic about it.  Where are you being treated and where is this trial?  Have you also looked at other tr...

                      Dear Girl, BY now you have certainly had your CT scan, and hope that this proves not to be a kidney cancer.  If so, there are plenty of options for you, and especially with such a very small mass.  Ten years ago, I had a mass on my kidney that was 10cm--about the size of a softball--and was treated with surgery and then an immune stimulant which rid my lungs of many, many tiny mets. I have a blog, which c...
