this is a meager example of why one never knows from where will come some substance to help:

"Researchers identify fish protein that may inhibit cancer metastasis" tho not pertaining to CRC its an example of why one should be rather open-minded

    Good Point Colocan

    Other than JBG's colon cancer and my hubby's H&N and lung cancer my "personal" experience with cancer is limited to a malignant melanoma removed several years ago. I tend to get a little nervous when one of my zillion moles starts to grow or change color. I had a large one on my neck recently that was growing rapidly, protruding and itched all the time. As I was involved with my hubby's care, there was no time for me to get to the doctor. Silly as it sounds, I started putting Revlon Eterna 27(my face cream) on it, just to stop the itching. For whatever reason, after a few days, the mole just fell off. I'd had that darn thing for years and never knew it didn't like Eterna 27. LOL

    So, we don't know where the answer will come from, do we?

    And no, I'm not selling Revlon Eterna 27.  LOL

    Luv,

    Here's one reference to Emend and brain cancer:

    Hayfever

    + asthma is interesting because Im looking at the immune relationship and lack of cytokine response, seems cancer patients may get less sick (symptoms) from colds, allergies etc  because the cytokine 'storm' doesn't happen.

    I would love to see a poll on allergies/flu and how often y'all get them.

    Hayfever

    Unfortunately I do still deal with season allergies and a dust allergy although I must admit it's not as bad as it used to be.  Since I've been on chemo I have not had a cold or a flu despite every member of my family coming home with one or the other at some point.  I seem to be the healthiest person in my home!  Now, the first year and half I was rather anal about being close to anyone who so much as sniffled.  Since I started my Vit C iv's though, I don't worry at all.  Between the chemo and the vit c the virus doesn't stand a chance.  I still am careful about bacteria though.

    IV C

    My wife and mom's family always had minor allergies that I considered histaminic. Not really much on the cold and flu to start with.  She reacts to air pollution, with sneezes and itchy nose.  In fact when she starts to react, presumably with histamine buildup or starting, is a large part of how we've spaced the IV vitamin C at  4-5 days.  

    Histamine is the trigger for VEGF-A, a major growth factor including cancer.  IV vitamin C to neutralize histamine is a lot nicer than Avastin to neutralize VEGF-A directly, although not a true substitute.   Combined with cimetidine, IV vitamin C seems to fill that part of her histamine, VEGF-A and CA19-9 related needs.
