Subject:         Radiation treatment?

Hi Dr. D,

I would appreciate if you could share your thoughts on radiation treatment for
skin cancer, and whether this is an good treatment method or if it should be
avoided. In the past, I've had three BCCs removed from my face with Moh's
surgery, with fairly good results, but this one is larger (10mm), and on the upper
side of the nose, which would require skin grafting and perhaps a bone
transplant. I'm also prone to developing keloid scars, and the radiation method
claims to leave no scars.

Since the radiated area is much smaller for skin cancer treatment than for other
types of cancer, and it only goes a couple of mm deep, will the side effects be
only local or will radioactive cells get distributed throughout the body when I
detox and cause problems elsewhere? Is fasting after radiation a good or bad

Do your know anything about the long term side effects? I hear that cancer risk
can increase in the radiated area after 20 years or so, as well as I have to avoid
sunshine to the area for the rest of my life.

Also, since you meet a lot of raw people, have you met anyone who have seen a
reduction in future BCCs and Actinic Keratosis after going raw? I've been eating
mostly raw for many years but the BCCs still keep coming (I'm only 47), and I
develop lots of Actinic Keratosis whenever I spend time in the sun.
