Latest entry: "Aging, Inflammation, and Antioxidants" presented by Ellen Troyer, MT MA (CEO and Chief Research Officer, Biosyntrx Nutraceuticals)
"Packed with useful information . . . an easy read despite its difficult subject matter. Perhaps the most important aspect of this book is that it is written by a patient for other patients. Mr. Roberts wears this mantle appropriately. His strong, clear voice says to the reader, 'I am a survivor and you can be, too.' Certainly, this is one of the most important messages that patients in the throes of the disease can hear."
