I hope those comprising CRI are interested in 2lbs of stevia curing my uncle's 6 in transition phase to cancer breast tumors. He'd just lost his prostate to cancer, and thought his life was over. Adding the facts 62lbs of flab melted off with no hanging/flabby skin, and type 2 diabetes no longer registering makes this seem like a fairy tale, but those results did happen.
Stevia is very high in alkalinity, I've read that a high alkaline diet= a difficult environment for cancer and other diseases from living inside those bodies, and am hoping that someone at CRI is interested in investigating these valid claims.
In order to beat Cancer, it needs to be fully understood. Research carried out by people such as these is vital.
