|Wolfie, I hope you have all of 20 years before menopause. My wife and I got to share "menopause in a bottle," AKA tamoxifen following her first mastectomy. Her cancer has returned 5 years following a second mastectomy, and is unfortunately now considered incurable. She takes the estrogen blocker Arimidex, which so far has actually reduced the size and number of active sites in her lymph nodes, and so far there are no brain, lung or liver tumors (the next most likely sites for secondary breast cancers).|
We are hopeful that with the anti-science swine out of the White House, medical research will catch-up in time to save her, and millions of other women's lives.
I'm sorry to hear that, Dr G.
Yet, sadly, it brings to light the inherent problems of fighting against science for ideological and theological reasons. No amount of "Jesus loves you" can replace an able lab with able scientists using all the WORKING tools they can to help those who are in pain.
What would be the state of the world if everyone shared, for exemple, the beliefs of Jehovah witnesses about blood transfusion. The more you think about it, the more crazy it looks, and really gives the best arguments against blind religious fanatism.
Although I would not wish harm to anyone, I wonder what would be your average IDCreationist's reaction if confronted with such an issue.
I kinda remember about Dr Dr writing a desastrous account of his visit to a "healing preacher" with his wife and his son who is afflicted with Down syndrome.
I wish this kind of tragedy would open one's mind, but sadly it rarely does.
Anyway, hold fast, Dr G!
Yep, it's amazing how some change when they are confronted with a problem. Nancy Reagan is all for fetal stem cell research as her hubby died of a condition she believed stem cell research could have cured.
Marriage is not a lifetime commitment, it's a life sentence!
