Dr. Day's story, in a very small nutshell, is that she had developed breast cancer and refused to be treated using "conventional" methods, because she knew these methods actually tear down the immune system. What she did was reform everything in her life (food, lifestyle, rest habits, etc) to enhance her immune system, and coupled with her Christian faith, the baseball sized tumor on her chest eventually withered away, and she has been cancer free, to my knowledge, for many (like 20 or so) years.
You won't believe the flack she took from the medical community over the publication of her life experience. The hospital who initially treated her actually denied that she had ever walked through their doors, until of course Dr. Day, as a medical professional, demanded her own medical records be given to her, so she could prove her story.
You see, you might be attending college in the persuit of a medical career, but you should NOT assume that everything they are teaching you there is absolute truth, and there ARE other people in the world besides the "establishment" (teachers and professors don't get to be where they are by going against the established principals... at least not very often).
Again, I would implore everyone who reads this to go to Dr. Day's site for themselves, so see if what I have said here is true.
Just because cancer is what it is doesn't mean it can't be cured (not to say that it always CAN be, either). And you should not assume that current accepted treatments for cancer are the best a patient can get, either....
Where do you think the money comes from to build all of the "cancer centers" scattered across the countryside? Maybe one should consider that during a typical cancer patient's treatment, the hospitals and associated treatment facilities, equipment manufacturers, etc. are literally taking everything that person owns, everything their family owns, and everything they can squeeze from the health insurance carrier, and from the government (that's you and me) to pay for that person's treatment, which, in too many cases terminates with the death of the patient. The system, as it is currently set up, "lives" on the money generated by conventional cancer treatments; why should they change the way they currently treat cancer patients, when such treatments might put all those huge multi-billion dollar cancer centers into financial ruin? They ultimately have no incentive to allow any more effective treatments into the realm of discussion.
I rest my case.

For those of us in America, I just wanted to wish you a very happy Memorial Day weekend... as we remember ALL of our fallen troops, living or otherwise.
Speaking for myself, (and I think many would agree), I wish there were no such thing as war. However, it is a fact of our human existence, I'm afraid.
Some have been killed in action in various wars. Others are survivors after the wars, but have spent less than ideal lives afterward. That is what I mean by "fallen" troups.
My father spent 19 terrifying months in on the front lines in Korea during the Korean War, and thank God he survived... or I wouldn't be here. He doesn't talk about his experiences much, but according to my aunts (his sisters), he came back a changed man, but not for the better.
He now suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD. However, like many other former military folks who had experiences like him, he would never admit that he suffers from such a thing. But we, his family can see it, and have had to live with it. My mother, God bless her, has had to live with his condition for over 50 years. It's not easy....
I was in the USAF myself for one tour of duty, most of which was spent in Iceland, and I have a brother who spent some time in Germany as an Army soldier; but we only had to fight "The Cold War", so we were never in any real danger. It was a time of relative peace for the United States.
I also wanted to remember all of our current military members, who are right now putting their lives on the line, (and sometimes losing them), along with their families, who are sacrificing the lives they once knew, to take on the life of a military family.
My wife and I have a 19 year old God-Son who is now a U.S. Marine, who is scheduled to go to Iraq in July of this year. We are concerned for him, as we know that he most likely won't return to us the same person as we know him, or maybe not at all. All we can do is hope and pray for the best.
So you see, I appreciate all of those who have given up their lives, both physically and also sometimes mentally, so that I didn't ever have to fight a real war. No military pay nor pension can ever compensate these fine folks and their families for what they have given, or are giving up.
Whatever are our own individual political and social beliefs, these people are only doing what we as a country are asking them to do, and they need our constant support.
If you see any member of the military in any setting, whether they be active duty, retired, or otherwise... but especially when you see them at the airport, just give them a smile and a nod, a handshake, or a salute, or just say "Hi, and thanks for what you do, and God bless you!"... they'll appreciate it more than anything. These folks are more than likely being deployed to the danger zone, and none of them know if they'll make it back in one piece.... Some of them won't. You might just be the encouragement they needed to make it another day.
As a final thought, you can do a Google search for "military support sites" and you will find many ways to lend your support via the internet.
All that having been said, please have a great and safe holiday!
