Dear Mr. Mason,
Thank you for the very nice complement and thanks for keeping me updated along with your friends.
Minor point — it’s Southern Chinese (hence suspected to be diet related for them as the rate changes when they move to other places and change their diet), Scandinavian nickle miners and people who work with hard woods. The latter two categories, to my knowledge, we still don’t know why for certain. Dr. Wang may know of recent explanations. Keep up the good work. Good attitude does help the immune system. The same chemicals that are neurotransmitters in the brain also regulate the immune system. I’m looking forward to hearing how you’re doing, in particular when it gets frustrating for a while about half-way through the treatments. As I said after UCLA tumor board, after the patients stick it out they are always glad they did, no matter what.
