    Hi Mary, Just wanted to say “GREAT” on your Husband’s yearly check-up. You both enjoy the Summer as well. We have plenty of plans with a trip to Branson ,MO. Going to take a dinner cruise on the Branson Show Boat Belle for starters. Did it 4 years ago but really enjoyed enough to do again. Then a Jeep Trans ride through the caverns of the ozark mountains. Take Care! Jeff G.

    Hey Jeff,
    I really believe in the stuff so that’s very appropriate! My husband had his one year check-up and all is well. It must be the spinach and milkthistle, or maybe the carrot juice and beet pills or maybe the maitake mushrooms! Who knows ,but we’re pleased. I hope all is well with you. It sounds like you’re doing great. Keep it up and enjoy your summer! Take care. Mary

    This site provided by Memorial, Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center allows you to review uses of herbs , botanicals, and other products that may or may not be benificial in cancer care treatments and/or supplements. Although they use the standard disclaimer statement they do provide resources and the scientific and common names and what it is usually used for (clinical summary. Eample: Milk Thistle … scientific name is Silybum marianum or carduus marianum… common name is holy thistle or lady’s thistle or Mary thistle and it goes on with the clinical summary to include Mechanism of action,constituents,pharmacokinetics, and adverse reactions. Site members certainly could use this tool to evaluate supplemental or other over the counter products before spending their hard earned money.

    Jeff G. P.S. Mary, notice the common name for milk thistle.
