Cpland16 – congratulations on your 1 year anniversary of being cancer free!
I’ve also read that in Japan, something like 1 in 30 women get breast cancer, as opposed to 1 in 8 in the US. What’s ironic is that I’m Japanese (but lived in the US for the past 30 years) and I drink green tea almost every day, even before my cancer. Unlike Japan, US is with people with mixed ethnic backgrounds, so it must have something to do with our diet, the way we live, air, water, etc… I heard broccoli is good for breast cancer, so I’ve been eating lots of those these days.
Karen – your link is extremely helpful. I’m definitely interested in exploring herbal medicine in conjunction with the Western medicine. The success rate statistics of Dr. George Wong’s patients look so promising. I live in San Jose California and I’ll also do some research on local herbal medicine doctors who may be able to mix the herbs for me. Thank you for the information.
