Are fruit juices with high fructose corn syrup unhealthy for my child?

Are fruit juices with high fructose corn syrup unhealthy for my child?

Absolutely!: Milk and water are the only fluids kids need to drink. Juice, soda, sugared drinks of any type only introduce empty calories. "no sugar added" fruit juice is a food industry trick because all juices have their own sugars. 8 oz of orange juice has the equivalent of nearly 8 tsp of sugar! a 12 oz soda has nearly 10 tsp of sugar. High fructose corn syrup is particularly unhealthy. ...Read more

What is the use of baking soda for cancer, will it neutralize the effect of tamoxifen?

Has  anyonre  injected    cancer  cell  in the  body  with  say  colloidal silver or  baking soda soln  to  see the  effect?

Yes: These are both utterly fraudulent treatments that are protected by free speech.

If they worked, the research piranhas at the nih would have snapped them up and the military -- the most reality-based institution -- would use them. Could be a kid's science project -- it'll fail. ...Read more

Primary Small Cell Liver Cancer in nodes and spot in lung. On alternative therapies including baking soda, PH urine is 9-10, is this too high?

I'm sorry: Small cell carcinoma is very seldom primary in the liver and you need to have an explanation for why it's not a lung primary metastatic there instead -- that would be treatable with chemotherapy for a few more good months / years. The baking soda "alternative" therapy is a cynical, cruel fraud and adds insult to your difficult situation, no matter how "kindly" and "caring" the presenters. ...Read more
