    So he died of cancer. Hard way to go. Enjoyed his humor. Wonder at whom that big cancer gun is aiming at. It could be anyone. Thank God for early detection and treatments to fight that culprit.

    And yes, it is in the water. Fasciopsis buskii is a flatorm (also known as a fluke) that usually needs a snail for it's 6-stag e life cycle to complete. Normally, only the adult lives in human intestines, but when the human body ingests solvents, especially rubbing alcohol, the other 5 stages occur inside of YOU!Every single case of cancer, Hiv infections, Crohn's disease and Alzheimers involve this crappy little tapeworm...(cont)

    I've been studying this critter for 30 yrs. or so, and have reached this conclusion: this fluke is necessarry. Normally, it's eggs hatch outside your body in your dung, and help the dung become fertilizer for the earth. However, solvents like rubbing alcohol cause these eggs to hatch inside of you. The hatchlings then seek out dead cells, and begin doing to them what normallly would be done outside your body in your dung. (cont)

    The fluke babies also like to play around in undigested red meat. Since the avg. 50 yr. old American male has about 15 lbs. of undigested red meat in his gut at any time (John Wayne's autopsy found over 40 lbs.) the baby fluke has a huge palyground. 80% of all women suffering from breast cancer are women who consume more red meat than the avg. So there is a definite link between red meat and these conditions. (cancer, HIV, etc) In order to get rid of these critters, one needs only to stop ingesting solvents, and never consume more than acout 4-6 ounces of red meat per day. (cont)

    There is a list of about 300 products we use that stimulate these flukes available online. They include refrigerators(even new ones), air conditioners, carpet, paint, canned soft-drinks, bottled water....even wooden toothpicks! (isopropyl alcohol is used to sterilize them) Anyway, what concerns me most, other than friends and family suffering from this, is that none of this is being discussed openly any physicians or TV doctors like Gupta.. Have you ever heard of what I am posting? If so, please join in and share what you know. thank you–phil
