  1. Ya know, I never thought I would get a tattoo but since my diagnosis, I’ve thought about it. I’ve also been asked, several times, what I’ll get when all this is behind me. Right now, though, the only tattoo in my future is the one I’ll get in 8 days from my radiologist.

  2. I treat cancer prevention/reversal with food not drugs, surgery, or radiation. This method is safer, less expensive, and more effective. Please consider the knowledge we can provide you and your loved ones with at ChronicDiseaseReversal.com (the site is brand new and still a work in progress). This message is not meant as spam, just an honest attempt to guide people toward the truth. Thank you for your time, dr.gbh
