  • There have been cures for cancer for decades. However, the pharmaceutical money lust, has been stopping it. I would type out the known cures, but what for, it will just be a tip to the pharmaceutical police force. I worked as an Intensive Care Critical Care physician for years. I got into cancer, My mind is such that I sought cures and found them, for 5 years I worked in integrative cancer therapy, and did a number of studies. One study took 384 patients with stage 4 cancers and in 8 weeks 80% WERE IN complete remission.
    Cancer is a systemic illness. It does not go away.

    If one wants to learn about cures, go to the office of the Cancer Control Society out of Hollywood, California. They keep research on all Both
    conventional and integrative.

Yes
    out spoken women can be a problem, especially when they are correct.
