We are doing all this while

We are doing all this while these folks in North Carolina say the woman's breast cancer problem is solved. They talk about the tooth/tumor connection and do thermography which finds problems years sooner than anything mentioned here. If you want to know about them check them out at http://www.breastcancercured.com/index.html
If they are correct,, and they seem to be, all this other is a waste of time and resources.

Waste of time and resources?
