What are your thoughts on coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and tumeric as cancer fighting supplements?

More beneficial!: Cayenne has many proven benefits. Capsacain may be mutagenic to stomach cells but also has anti-cancer properties. One study found increased risk of stomach cancer while another found those who ate the most cayenne had least cancer incidence! The benefits outweigh the unproven risk. See http://www.

What's the most effective an FAST way to cure ringworm? Apple cider vinegar? Tea tree oil? Garlic?

There are excellent over-the-counter drugs, including single dose oral fluconazole (Diflucan), or any of several vaginal creams -- look for active ingredient ending in "azole". If any doubt about the diagnosis, or if OTC treatment doesn't work, see a doctor. ...Read more
