What You Need to Know
I have found from experience with my own Mother and with a lot of the older generation. That they tend to believe anything and everything they read.
So I would like to make it clear that it is very important to look at he Primary Sources of information and make clear conclusions from that. Not from third or lesser sources of information.
When I say Primary Sources, I mean valid and reasonable information taken from the main source or the 'horses mouth'.
Information that has realistic and logical backing and evidence.
Sometimes desperation, fear, anxiety can cause blindness in your research or search for knowledge into Cancer. This blindness can make you read what you want to read and what you want to hear to make you feel better. This is wrong.
Information is supposed be a source of fact and not to make you feel better and cause a form of deceit because of fear and desperation.
I completely understand why people do this and fall into this, as our minds are so powerful. But the strength of what is real and true should be your guide.
I recommend reading material such as:
