It seems intuitive to me, too, that cancer and diet are linked. Every year, rates of childhood cancer rise. What on eath could it be, if not diet and environment? Yet it's impossible to prove, of course.


Last year when I was facing the possibility of cancer, for the first time in my life I decided I'd go through with chemo and such if I did have leukimia or Hodgkins. It wasn't my prefered choice, but one I made for those in my life.

I'm a firm believer that the patient and the patients family has the right to make choices for their best health an interests, even if at times it may cause death. Sometimes doing what's right for the soul isn't always best for the body.

Jessica: But why do so few people see that?

Autumn: Yeah, I would be really, really pissed (and scared) if the state tried to interfere with the choices we make for our children.

this is especially scary after the Terri Schiavo fiasco, where you had right wing bloviators interfering in the private lives of a family over an issue that they clearly only cared about for political gain. It's frightening that a family can be caught in that political BS.

Too bad the judges aren't intervening before the cancer, forcing companies to be honest about what they put into our bodies and environment...

Man, that is so true.
