Hi Swimom,

Interesting article. There must be hundreds of researchers and doctors working on a cure and improved treatment for PCa and then I see on 60 minutes where a rich business man who is retired gets a couple of his wifes pans and a radio transmitter, goes to the garage and my have a break through in Cancer Treatment. I hope like all, that this has merit and if it does, it should be a wake up to those multitudes that are saying they are working hard.

They attach metalic nano somethings to the cancer cells turn on the transmitter and wa la, bad cells burned up good cells fine. You have to take a look at this. He has huge legitimate support and may get a federal grant money. I thought it was a joke. One Doc says he feels like he is close to finding the Holy Grail.

John Kanzius RF transmitter. google it.

Hi Swim. I read the article and found it interesting. I know Dr. Freedland at Duke and found him to be a real intelligent and gifted researcher. I also did an interview with him for MSNBC back in the fall about obese men and as it relates to the blood volume masking the PSA in larger men. I don't know why they called me looking for a fat guy!!!! By the way Dr. Freedland was not my Dr.

Take care
