Hi Steve,

Is the patient ordering their own lab work any worse than buying very questionable placebo botanicals from a health store to treat a thousand and one conditions?

And I would not be surprised if subtle changes in blood work linked with some condition such as shingles that in turn would suggest using a specific cancer test still to be developed to diagnose early cancer.

Also, our mutations, linked to blood work, and social habits and life style over time I would suspect would show cancer correlations. Bring on the computers, data bases, and accurate lab tests!
