It is human nature to speculate on causes of disease or misfortune. When I saw the news the first question that came to my mind was, has it got something to do with growing up in Kibera? The reason for this was that less than 2 years ago a prominent surgeon who had grown up in Kibera died of cancer at the prime of his life:

I sympathise with doctors, damned if you do and damned if you dont.

If someone goes to doctor with vague symptoms and he orders a battery of tests worth 50000, you bad mouth about doctors ordering too many test.

If someone comes with same vague symptoms and is treated as ulcers, a statistically more common cause of the symptoms than cancer in any population, and it turns out to be cancer, you crucify the doctor.

When the doctor goes on strike saying he needs better facilities to work with, better training opportunities, you vilify the poor guy.

When the doctor points out that high cost of healthcare is due to govt tax on medical equipment and drugs, cartel like behaviour of insurance companies and high cost of tests and imaging, no body listens. All you want is doctor to reduce his fee, a meagre 10% of total healhcare cost.

It has finally caught up with us....an in-sincere corrupt society at almost all levels is poisoning herself to a painful death.

I'll explain. My suspicion is that most of the cancer cases that we have are related to what is ingested into our body via the food we eat.

There are so many harmful chemicals being used to spray crops that are illegal in western countries. To export say french-beans into European markets farmers are told what chemicals to apply and which not to lest their produce is rejected(after subjecting to testing by the exporter). However the banned chemicals are sprayed on crops that we consume locally. Foliar feeds make especially our mbogas look nice n appetising but guess what, they look beautiful coz of those un-natural enzymes introduced when spraying. Even after spraying a farmer should wait for a stipulated period(like 4 days) before picking but my guess is as good as yours that they don't wait the stipulated period....an in-sincere society!!!. Same applies to dairy. After treatmeant a cow's milk should not be consumed like for 3 days.. It should be poured away or given to dogs. Which farmer pours away 20 litres per day for 3 or so days?

Then the issue with kupalilia shamba. We used to be manual, kupalilia with jembe but most of the wheat/maize we consume nowadays is from farms who apply herbicides to control weeds so as to lower cost of production.

I bet this is the cause of our problem period.

The other day an Ethiopian friend was asking me why there are so many cancer cases here. They do not have as many in ethiopia. So must be some problem localy here

Some good news in the battle against the disease....

https://www.telegraph.co...neering-trial-suggests/

Quote:
The common cold virus could cure cancer, scientists say, as a “revolutionary” treatment was found to eradicate the disease in a week.

In the pioneering British trial, 15 patients were given an infusion of the bug, before undergoing surgery to remove and examine tumours.

In every case, cancer cells had been destroyed - and in one case, all traces of the disease had gone, the study found.

Scientists said they were “very excited” about the findings, for patients with bladder cancer, which could also bring hope to those suffering from other major forms of the disease.

They said the virus could become a “universal agent” to fight cancer, replacing conventional treatments like chemotherapy.

Scientists said they hoped the treatment could be available in as little as three years, bringing hope to thousands of patients with diseases that are currently hard-to-treat.

Most tumours in the bladder do not have immune cells, making the disease particularly hard to treat.

But the study suggests that an infusion of a strain of the common cold virus - called coxsackievirus (CVA21) - was able to inflame the tumour and cause immune cells to rush into the cancer environment, targeting and killing the cancer cells.

Scientists said once the virus targeted the cancer, it replicated itself, making its effects even more powerful.

Prof Hardev Pandha, Principal Investigator of the study and Professor of Medical Oncology at the University of Surrey, said: “We are very excited about it. The virus gets into the cancer and replicates, like a little factory of viruses. It heats up the tumour environment, and is very specific in targeting the cancer - it had the least toxicity I have seen for years.”

It comes as other trials examine the role of common cold viruses to treat a range of cancers, including breast, bowel, lung and skin diseases.

Prov Pandha said: “It’s almost like a universal agent - once it gets in it kills the cancer. It could be combined with lots of other treatments.”

He said the use of the virus could help “revolutionise” treatment for the disease.

I want to say it shall be well,but it gets to a point of painfully accepting that time is limited and the conversations change.It saddens me to see him this thin but that's the effect of chemo.It eats and wastes once muscles,completely destroying the immune system resulting in mineral imbalances etc, there is no reverse no matter how hard we try and avoid it.Chemo is horrible!
So sorry man.God give you comfort and peace.
