Awesome news! Cancer patients need new, safer pain killing options. And maybe this compound will allow measured, controlled dosing that marijuana–grown in different places in different ways–can’t:
I interviewed an oncologist that specializes in the use of medical marijuana last evening. The Cure Talk broadcast featured Dr. Donald Abrams.
How’s this for some exciting research news:
Another look at a anti-cancer nutritional protocol that has been around for decades:
Last month, writer Suzy Cohen wrote an insightful article: 3 herbal supplements with anti-cancer properties. It’s based on a question about pancreatic cancer, but I believe the tips have a much broader application. Here’s an excerpt:
I saved this article from last month, touting the benefits of vitamin B3:
Did you catch the story about how fruit flies may hold the key to a cure for cancer? It’s all about individualized medicine.

Last month I had the opportunity to test a new, anti-nausea product called Psi Bands.
I’ve always been an Amy Robach fan. As a lifelong Today Show viewer, I felt NBC made a mistake not giving her the co-anchor spot next to Matt Lauer a half dozen years ago. Passed over, Amy left for a new opportunity with ABC’s Good Morning America. This week viewers learned that Amy had been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Check out this recent article I read in the Fall edition of Cure Magazine, giving a thumbs up to a supplement called Pomi-T. A pomegranate abstract, Pom-T also contains green tea (not good for Velcade users 24 hours each side of an infusion), turmeric (curcumin) and broccoli.
A fellow multiple myeloma (bone marrow cancer) patient sent me this email today:
I’m not sure we really need a breast cancer awareness month anymore.
I haven’t read Jane Schwartzberg’s new book. But I’m looking forward to it. Like Jane, my bone marrow cancer is incurable. I’ve lived six years and hope to live six more. But the odds say I won’t make it past ten.
