    Everyone with half a brain knows that no one is ever just magically cured of cancer so why do Wiggy and Robin keep shoving this shit down everyone's throat? Could it be that they are so scummy that they're trying to boost sales by giving desperate cancer patients the impression that Robins diet/book could possibly cure cancer? Maybe i'm being too hard on them but they're all so fucking greedy that I really have to wonder.

    Even if your prognosis is good most people wouldn't go around claiming to be anything more than cancer free at the moment. The hype and overstatement was little more than a means to generate publicity for the book, that's why it all occurred at the moment of it's release and why everything was hush hush to that point.

    If there is a God, NY's Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is investigating consumer fraud on the part of Blobbin and Stern.

    Her publicity isnt generating any sales, thats for sure.

    Just checked novelrank.com and Robin has sold 906 copies of her book thru amazon.com in the month of October.

    So much for the good old days of NY Times Best Sellers.

    My best friend's brother had a cancerous tumor removed from his leg. Doctors said they thought they got it all. Four years later cancer reappeared with a vengeance. He was dead 7 months later.

    The vast majority of oncologists actively avoid using the word "cured" for most types of cancer. Of course, lying comes natural now to the Stern crew.

    How come someone who's allegedly cured can't make it to the studio for 12 hours a week (at most)?

    These days it's surprising if Howard says anything that isn't self-serving. I'm wondering what his connection is to that kids' charity that he twatted about the other day.

    we all have the potential for cancer within us. some are just more inclined towards developing it than others, just like diabetes or a mental illness or whatever. the best way to fight cancer is preventative treatment through diet first and foremost. there are so many toxins and poisons out there in our environment, food, water and everyday objects that it's really a craps shoot. the more indulstrialized our world becomes and the more we turn away from a more natural way of living, the higher the rates of cancer will rise. it's just a given. we're all pretty much doomed.
