I was watching the Imus video Tony linked (btw how did Imus end up treating it?) when I saw this video which I liked very much.

Look at the expression on the face of the guy as teh surgeon reads him his pathology. I'll never forget hat moment myself.

I am not 100% certain, but I heard Don Imus elected for a holistic approach and has not been treated with conventional medicine. Given his age it may work out well for him.

oh, I'm a little surprised he didn't take more conventional approach. How old is he? in his 60s, right? Looks like his approach is to eat habaneros. Not sure what to say really, I am a little surprised. WOuld love to hear more from him on this.

Found this

Also didn't realize Sliwa tried the holistic approach for a year with his sister as a result of listening to Imus on this. Sliwa's collapse during that tea party rally sure didn't sound like something any of us experienced as a result of PCa. Perhaps he was reacting to the food his sister was makig him eat. I know that a steady diet of habaneros would knock me out besides causing me to poop napalm.

When googling Imus and his holisitc approach most of the his I get are from the guy prescribing the habaneros using Imus as a testimonial for his approach.
