Antioxidants and cancer

Dear Editor:They say we may send people to Mexico for treatment when hospitals and doctors offices here become overcrowded as a result of Obamacare. In 1979 our son, Mike, was dying of cancer. Having heard of a Tijuana hospital's alleged success with laetrile, I spoke to five or six people sitting in cars, and in the lobby, and each told of a miracle they had experienced. Several said their doctors had given them less than a month to live some 15 years ago. Each said they had been given a strict diet to adhere to, and it was the strict diet more than the laetrile they believed was responsible. The strict laetrile diet was largely made up of antioxidants. Some believe foods called oxidants that deprive cells of oxygen are more apt to cause cancer than those that do not, and recommend foods that are antioxidants, like asparagus, raw honey, broccoli and cinnamon. Since consuming mostly antioxidants I have had had no recurrence of cancer, and I feel good. More information on antioxidants is available on the Internet. Our son died the second day we arrived. We were too late. - James Hawkins, Downey
