    I hope he stays strictly on a plant based diet. Which could prevent the cancer from coming back. Because when this thing comes back in people it comes back viciously. Most of the food in the grocery stores in the western world cancerous.

      Worse in some developing countries like Nigeria. When people aren’t dying as a result of poor infrastructure, the cancer rates are rising.
      1) Air pollution from poorly refined crude oil, old cars, permanent generators – lots of aromatic benzene proven to cause all types of cancers.
      2) lack of regulation, education or literacy and desperation means that farmers are vulnerable to pharma companies selling toxic pesticides, dangerous antibiotics which improve yield but increase risk of cancer. As the products not processed appropriately, washed, no blood tests on animals or checks and balances.

      3) the elephant in the room where lots of nuclear material having been dumped by western countries in farm land for a pittance to desperate communities…with no way current checks of whether they are leaching into foodstuffs and arable soil.

      I could go on. What about the American companies such as Halliburton selling banned substances such as Asbestos to Nigeria, which is still being used in laying roads and build new houses and office. This very substance that workers in the west are getting compensation for due to it causing lung cancer and mesotheliomas; school and old buildings been refurbished at billions of cost in order to remove it from environment.

      We could go on. Organic Nigeria or most developed world has truly flown the nest. Even our foodchain has been corrupted. Unless you breed and grow your own products, even then how do you confirm your soil and waterwork hasn’t been contaminated?

      some people will say you are paranoid….

      whether he stays on plant based diet or not he needs to regularly go for checkup to detect if the cancer is coming back..

      despite our vegetable (plant) based diet in Nigeria… many people are getting diagnosed with cancer…
