My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer of the thymus four months ago. He is fairly young (46) and has been in good health his whole life. He is a reatuarant manager and took a position with a high end steak house about 3 and a half years ago. About 9 months into the job I noticed that his body was letting off an unpleasant smell and his breath was also becoming increasingly bad (which had never been the case before). My husband worked long hours and often didn't eat till the end of the evening and that meal usually included a very large piece of meat.
After reading Dr. Campbell's book we have both become vegans and only wish we had gotten his information earlier. We will never know for sure if my husband's heavy meat diet triggered the growth of the cancer but it seems likely considering the evidence laid out by Dr. Campbell. I am grateful to Dr. Campbell for his work and his efforts and most of all his courage to follow his truth inspite of the immense pressure from his peers to do otherwise.
My husband's most recent CT scan looked really good and we are so grateful that remission seems a real possibility. However, because of Dr. Campbell we feel we can meet the challenge of staying cancer free half way instead of waiting helplessly for its return.
As for Dr. Mercola I think that he is a caring and kind person and most likely wants the best for those he advises. However, as Dr. Campbell points out, he does have a financial investment in what he says. Every other time he posts he has a product to go with it. I am sure he is offering these products because he wants to offer the best of what is available. However, profits motivate even if on the unconscious level. How can he be objective when he has a stake in what is being sold? Personally he lost me when he started selling tanning beds but that's me.
I only suggest that you read "The China Study" front to back and ask yourself what is Dr. Campbell trying to sell?...nothing as far as I can make out. Next, ask yourself the same question of Dr. Mercola and I am affraid you'll have many products to choose from. Think for yourself and don't just be persuaded by sound bites--do the research as it just might save your life.

I agree on that. The only point I wanted to make is, that a 100% vegan diet is not a natural diet. I do not know of any vegan community in the world. There are however many examples of health and longevity among those who live in communities, eating plant based wih little meat or fish sometimes.
I strongly believe in the powers of a plant based diet and recommend this diet to everyone, just wanted to make my point that a 100% vegan diet, is a diet we created. The reasons for most people to go completely vegan, may be not only related to their health. It's a new diet, just like our bad Western diet that didn't exist either 200 years ago. Within now and hundred years we'll know much more about the benefits of the 100% vegan diet. Going back thousands of years, I still cannot find any info about communities where people were living 100% vegan.
Oh really?! For 1000s of years, what did they eat in the Garden of Eden? Duh.
Dr. Mercola is just about the finest "snake oil" salesman the world has ever seen. Not only is he selling something in almost every article he posts, when he isn't selling he's setting up a future sales pitch with the earlier article. He now sells tanning beds and water filters. I am upset with myself for taking his lame advice, indeed even so far as telling others what i supposedly learned from his nonsense. I stopped using my microwave oven for a month until I met a nuclear physicist and forwarded him Dr. Mercols'a nonsense about microwaves- he advised me all contained in the article was garbage! I stopped taking flu shots based upon his advice- he is selling all kinds of vitamins to enhance your immune system in place of the flu shots he waged war upon. Beware of Dr. Mercola the world's finest Snake Oil salesman. He has technology on his side.
It's very sad that almost every "authority" who is into raw food, alkaline balance, healthy food, or just HEALTH in general, has his or her own shop with plenty of supplements, water ionizers and many things more.It's easy to understand why people have no idea anymore about what is good for their health and what not. It's said already: there are so many supplements, all good for you, that there's hardly any space left for real food.
I think you better spend your money on wholefoods.Reading all supplement stuff makes me think it's not possible anymore to live a healthy life without taking supplements.
