    I've been reading up on cancer, CVD, Diabetes and Alz, In my non-expert opinion, I think they are all related to inflammation. The manifestation is on the weakest link of the body. Some people get cancer, some get heart disease, depending on the weakest system.

The solution: GREEN JUICING! LOL That and a diet of raw organic fruits, greens, and veggies.
