There is probably not much risk to using Fred's vitamins. I contacted him early in the course of my dad's disease ( unresectable bile duct cancer) and he sent me a plan by e-mail. I decided not to persue it because I knew my dad would never take the vast quantities of vitamins required at the upper levels ( you work your way up to huge doses) and we had trouble getting dad to take the few prescription pills he needed. Now Fred has a source who combines the vitamins into less pills so it might be more convenient. I would never scoff at 'natural' medicines--many of the chemo used today is derived from plants, so there is no reason that his vitamin combo might not work for some. He does not have any true 'science' to back him up, just his own and some other patients testamonials, but just because it hasn't been published doesn't mean it might not work.
