Of Note...

I am back. I thought that the book would be the end of the blog, but when there is noteworthy information to share, I will be back at the keyboard.

Two people have died very recently. Actually, many people have died recently, including my Dad.

"Grete Waitz dies at 57 after cancer battle - (News | FOX Sports on MSN Apr 19, 2011) ... Marathon great Grete Waitz loses a six-year battle to cancer, dying at 57. She won nine New York City Marathons."
We know that she was on chemo, because she was quoted as saying "For a couple of days after chemotherapy, food tastes really bland, even the best foods. I haven't been sick, but have been a little tired. I haven't lost any weight. (

Grete was a perfect speciman of a human being, healthy, fit, strong. If anyone could beat cancer, she could. But she couldn't beat chemo. Not many people can. She ran the NYC Marathon during the years that my late brother Jack ran the NYC Marathon, and she ran it at his pace, 2:20. They likely rubbed elbows. She was my age. She had cancer. For these reasons, I am somehow profoundly affected by her death.

"The definition of "cure" that orthodox medicine uses is this: A cancer patient is "cured" if they live 5 years from the date of their diagnosis of cancer." ( Ironically, Grete was cured of her cancer. She lived 6 years from the date of diagnosis. And then she died. She was cured, but she died. The chemo killed the cancer and the patient.

Stop the insanity now.

"LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) Actor-director Tim Robbins has lost his mother, musician Mary Robbins, just 12 days after his father died. The 52-year-old Oscar winner said his mother died Sunday of a heart arrhythmia at her home in home in Esteban Cantu, Mexico.

Robbin's father, former The Highwaymen singer Gil Robbins, died April 5 of prostate cancer. The two had been married for almost 59 years.

Mary Robbins successfully battled colon cancer through nutrition and alternative medicine, eventually earning a bachelor's degree in holistic nutrition. She volunteered her services at a clinic near the couple's Mexico home."

It makes you wonder, doesn't it?

It is unknown if Gil had chemo. But Mary was cancer-free. Her death was caused by a broken heart.

Mary Robbins took the 'road less traveled' and healed her cancer with nutrition and alternative medicine. Surprisingly, Grete Waitz, the marathon trailblazer, took the road most traveled and died along the way. Just because everyone does it, doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. Safety in numbers? They're all safely dead.

Just say no to chemo.
