Chronic bronchitis, emphysema and pneumonia linked to risk in study, but not asthma, tuberculosis

If you have been diagnosed with chronic bronchitis without the fever and mucous but been prescribed Levaquin, which can make you ill,  be on guard.  Ask your physician for a ct scan or at the very least a chest x-ray.  That happened to me in 2002, and if it weren't for a smart dr in the er room who kept me there a few days for tests,  I probably would not be here today.  Don't take no for an answer.

Local/Regional Iron Overload and Lung Cancer Risk. Lung cancer is the deadliest type of cancer for both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. Lung cancer treatments (surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, biological therapy, etc.) can't successfully beat lung cancer. Clinical methods of iron deprivation can successfully suppress inoperable lung tumors, metastases and micro-metastases. Lung cancers can be adequately treated with surgical procedures (ceramic scalpels) and iron-deficiency therapies: direct intratumoral injections of antiiron agents, blood donation and iron-poor diet. Cow's milk is a common cause of iron deficiency. It contains less iron than many other foods and also makes it more difficult for the body to absorb iron from other foods.  ;  ;  Vadim Shapoval
