    One of my good friends died of a brain tumor a few years back. Wore a blue tooth, used a laptop computer and drank lots of diet coke.

    We used to smoke cigs together, talk about relegion and since i never really bought a pack of cigs i'd bring a 20oz diet coke or two as an offering!!

    never knew i was part of an hit squad!! :(

    Interesting dogmas... Oy

    From the article, bolding mine:
    Well, he at least got one part right! I find it quite interesting that this 'recommendation' persists, given the evidence of less optimal brain function in populations utilizing fluoride... I actually found it CRAZY that the water specifically 'sold' for infants not only adds fluoride but advertises it boldly on the front label:[​IMG]

    A Paleo chef died today. Ketosis without DHA is not the best route to defeat this foe. When will they learn? Sad. It may not have had to go this way if the talk was about her environment and the mainstay role of DHA in cancer.

    "Rachel Albert has been a natural foods chef, freelance food and health writer, cooking instructor and nutrition educator for more than 25 years. She is an award winning cookbook author, thriver, a survivor (died today) of stage IV metastatic breast cancer, and advocate of the ketogenic diet for cancer.

    Find out more about Rachel's books, and read her blog, The Heathy Cooking Coach."

  11. Belle Gibson’s mum slams troubled childhood claims as ‘a lot of rubbish’
    May 18, 20152:24pm
    Disgraced wellness blogger Belle Gibson blamed a troubled childhood but her mother says it is just more lies.

    “I’VE never seen her cry in her life ... I can’t tell you how embarrassed we are about what she has done”

    That’s the brutal assessment of disgraced wellness blogger Belle Gibson’s mother, who has spoken for the first time about the storm engulfing the 23-year-old after she admitted lying about having terminal brain cancer to launch a cookbook and health app business.

    Natalie Dal-Bello told the Australian Women’s Weekly she was “embarrassed” by Gibson, who she said had dragged her family through the mud in her attempt to blame her cancer lies on a troubled childhood.

    Gibson said as a five-year-old girl she had been forced to care for Mrs Dal-Bello — who has multiple sclerosis — and run the household, while also looking after her autistic brother.

    “What a lot of rubbish,” Mrs Dal-Bello (formerly Gibson) told the magazine, saying the only truth to the story was her MS.

    “Her brother is not autistic and she’s barely done a minute’s housework in her life,” she said.

    “I’ve practically worked myself into an early grave to give that girl everything she wanted in life.”

    Mrs Dal-Bello said she had not been in touch with her estranged daughter for four years, and had no idea of the success she had found as a wellness entrepreneur until it came publicly crashing down.

    “I can’t tell you how embarrassed we are about what she has done,” she said.

    “She just plucked bits and pieces of other people’s medical problems and assumed them as her own She had a heart problem growing up, but that was it.

    “She doesn’t seem to be sorry. There doesn’t appear to be any remorse. I’ve never seen her cry in her life.”

    Mrs Dal-Bello said her daughter “always had ideas above her station”.

    She described Belle having expensive tastes and living beyond her means, and being “addicted to her computer”.

    “She used to fall asleep with it. Always on Facebook, always online,” she said.

    “But that world is not real, it’s not healthy.”

    Gibson’s brother Nick, who does not have autism, has also spoken out telling AWW he is “really upset” by his sister’s stories.

    “I’m disgusted with Belle and what she’s done,” he said.

    “It’s about attention. She’s always been like this.”

    Gibson, who admitted she didn’t have cancer in an interview with the same magazine last month, blamed a difficult upbringing for her lifelong struggle with the truth.

    “I think my life has just got so many complexities around it and within it, that it’s just easier to assume [I’m lying]” Gibson told AWW.

    “I am still jumping between what I think I know and what is reality. I have lived it and I’m not really there yet.

    “If I don’t have an answer, then I will sort of theorise it myself and come up with one. I think that’s an easy thing to often revert to if you don’t know what the answer is.”

    Gibson also said she was unsure if her mother was alive or dead. Mrs Dal-Bello said her daughter needed to apologise and dedicate years of her life to repaying the debt she owed, including volunteering for cancer charities.

    While she denied much of her daughter’s story, it is clear Gibson did have a somewhat complicated childhood. Both Gibson and her mother agreed on the story of her leaving home at age 12 when her mum and brother said she struck up a friendship and moved in with a man in his 60s.

    On Gibson’s absent father, Mrs Dal-Bello described him only as “a sperm donor”.

    Despite their anger, Gibson’s family say they would like to reconnect with her.

    “I would tell her I love her, that she needs to take care of her son, but at the end of the day, she need to take responsibility for her actions.”

    Brother Nick said he would like to see Belle again, but doesn’t think he would be able to ever forgive her.

    “The things I’d like to ask to her face now are, what did I do to deserve this? Please explain, why did you do this to our family?” he said.

    Gibson was eventually dumped by her publisher and Apple after turning her terminal cancer tall tale into a popular cookbook and wellness app, The Whole Pantry.

    She even managed to fool the tech giant into signing her up for the launch of the Apple Watch, where The Whole Pantry was to feature.

    But it all came crashing down after charities she claimed to have donated money to through the sale of the app confirmed they hadn’t received a cent from her.

    Gibson went into hiding, her business collapsed and she reportedly had to put her Melbourne house on the market.

    This is also sad for those of us trying to enlighten the public... Now searching the Internet for cancer and ketogenic diet, this will clutter up the results.
