    Have you ever heard of Umebosi Plum Paste? Another "wonder fruit/plant/thing" that is supposed to help cancer patients.

    This time, it's supposed to cleanse your body of all the radiation that we apparently hold after radiation treatments. A customer suggested I eat it to do so. In the spirit of full disclosure, I am passing it along. Umeboshi Plums Health Benefits

    Fatigue.
    Alcohol poisoning (hang-overs)
    Vomiting.
    General nausea (including pregnancy, motion, etc.)
    Diarrhea; Dysentery.
    Infection.
    Runny nose.
    Liver toxicity.
    A Google search returns several places that sell it, so it's not hard to find., I just have never heard of it. Anyone else?

      Two things: There is a surplus of wishful thinking and a dreadful lack of knowledge regarding ionizing radiation. Oh, and some greed and opportunism mixed in...

      I'm amused at the range of things it can help with. All the way from liver toxicity to a runny nose...

      I never heard of it.

      When i got radiation, they tokd me it continued to work for a long time after treatment ended. Even if I could, in light of that, i don't know that i would want to rid my body of the radiation...

      Good point LiveWithCancer...if the radiation does us no harm why rid our body of it.

      My best to you...Russ

      One of our customers asked me to pleeeaassse start taking it. I acted interested instead of telling her no thanks. Sometimes that's easiest. I'm never shocked at what people will suggest. This is just another.

      Greg...your new profile picture reminds me of the Uncle Sam bulletin board. I was 19 years old and got into an argument with a shop foreman, and was fired for doing so. I was driving home, and thinking about what was I going to do now. I turned the corner in my car and there it was the Uncle Sam bulletin board. It hit me...I parked my car went in the recruiting station, and joined the Army. Went home told my mom & dad, "I joined the Army today." My dad was very pleased but my mother was mad...chances of going to Viet Nam were pretty good. However I had a job as a payroll clerk, and ended up in Bangkok, Thailand for 18 months. Great duty!!! My best to you...Russ

      Greg, I have seen ads Plum Paste. They have been the pesky kind that cover the information you are reading. The fact that they are annoying will stop me from using it.
