Experimental! Now who wants to be a guinnee pig to these shlep doctors. All you have to do is take 4.5mg of lowdose naltrexone and be done with all cancers!!! That is it no other treatments. Never get chemo or radiation if you wish to live. Look at farrah and patrick .thank the doctors for all there killing techniques!!

You're in the middle of some delicate negotiations with your family or someone close, and you need to open up. It's a good time to discuss deeply held feelings, uncomfortable though they may be.

Is there any sort of study that suggests that prolonged drug users and the long term side effects on the immune system? Can the human body just stop repilcating the DNA and RNA necessary to fight off the cancer cells that will invade tissue from years of repeated injestion of chemicals within pot,cocaine,hash and so on?

Hate to say this, but prostate cancer is VERY treatable, if detected early, with standard treatment. Because he's undergoing an experimental treatment, it sounds like its advanced.

Cancer treatment is a big deal. The disease doesn't kill you---the treatment does. That's why he's dead.
