I was treated with chemo for stage 4 cancer. last treatment was in 2012 or later I think. Osteo diagnoised last Nov. and refused the drugs offered for osteo so I started taking AlgaeCal a natural supplement that my niece takes an her scores have improved. I am hopeful for same results. I can understand your concerns.
