Just a quick story about an extraordinary occurrence in the last week.
My mother had brain surgery (a tumor near the brain stem) in '85 (before I was born), and survived of course. Since the tumor was in a precarious place and the technology at the time wasn't as it was today they had to leave some of the tumor there. Well over the last 22 years or so, she had to go in once a year to get it checked out to see if it has grown or moved and such.
She skipped the last 2 years appointments, and got checked out this last Thursday to find out the tumor has disappeared completely. The doctors were stunned, and of course she was too.
Me being quite happy, wondered why such a thing happened after 20 years? I thought to myself, she has been eating a lot healthier over the past 1-2 years, especially lowering carb/sugar/grain intake (as well as regular exercise), and then it hit me. I'm pretty sure I read an article on Eades M.D. blog about cancer needing glucose to survive or something, not exactly sure on the details. But this could've been the case I believe. Of course this is all speculation, but the pieces fit together quite nicely I would say.
Just wanted to say that, as I thought it being quite astounding.
Oh yeah here was the blog article I was talking about
