Dr. Makris has been an oncologist for a long time, he comes over as a dedicated person. I have known 6 people with breast cancer and three died after a year or two. Thank goodness the other three are doing well and good luck to them. I suppose, as the doctor says, there is no definitive way of ensuring one does not succumb to cancer as, to my knowledge, there are about 200 types, one cannot cover all bases. Like he says, enjoy life, eat healthy, do not smoke and drink in moderation, then you might get hit by a bus!!!
