  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

No vitamin C for me, thank you

It’s funny the things you learn from you blog statistics… For instance, through someone’s search (thank you whoever you are) I’ve learned that 3 cases of IBC were diagnosed within 10 months among 24 co-workers. Bizarre!

But it sent me to a website I’d never been to before that had some great information. And a little video too. I followed a link to the IBC Research Foundation.

What I found really intriguing, however, was a couple of research articles I found there. They are on natural products that inhibit cancer growth and some that are known to encourage cancer growth.

I am disturbed to find glucosamine (which I take religiously), licorice (there went my recent addiction to Good N Plenty’s), soy, vitamin C, vitamin E, and flaxseed (and I was JUST going to start taking that to be healthier) on the list of things known to grow cancer cells. Yikes!!!

On the other hand… it was found that “in vitro studies of components of marijuana indicate a potential to inhibit human breast cancer cells and produce tumor eradications.” Oh, say it ain’t so! Ha! First it helps with nausea now it inhibits growth of cancer cells… What’s next? World peace and global munchies???

I jest. But the information seems valid and very interesting. Check it out.
