I take a number of the mushrooms as supplements. Currently, there are many sick people (flu or somesuch) at the school where I work. My other half and two of our four children have the sickness - again, flu or somesuch. I haven't taken it - I think this is significant, so continue taking my mushroom supplements, along with some other things - I think there is a reason I haven't caught the sickness when all those around me have - I used to be the FIRST one to catch a cold and the last to get over it -
I also think it is important to eat as many veggies and fruits RAW as possible - limit cooked/processed foods and definitely avoid meat eating - I am not vegetarian but have curtailed meat intake sharply, as well as dairy. I mix cottage cheese with flax oil now - but that's about all the dairy I use -

9/03 Medianioscopy & Bronchoscopy after PET scan lit up two places: Subcarinal lymph node is positive for adenocarcinoma; lymph node in neck probably; inoperable this time. Stage 3 or 4, not sure which. Visit radiation oncologist, he says is very early, best to wait at that time, and watch. I decide against any treatments. Listening and following recommendations of church with prayer and change of diet.
