Ok so this is absolutely insane but I had to share it with you. I was totally procrastinating by reading twitter on my iPad and I stumbled on this Pete Wells tweet about Turkey Vulture soup being a cure for cancer.

So I clicked on the link as any curious cancer patient would do. The link provided an abstract of a scientific study using terms I didn’t understand but I assumed they must mean something good if it was worth publishing. But what really got my attention was this line: “This study demonstrates for first time that Cathartes aura extract (CAE) exerted cytotoxic effects mainly on human cervical cancer cells but lacked toxic effects on non tumorigenic cells.” Excuse me??? Cervical cancer cells???? What are the odds that this crazy-sounding extract would mainly work on the form of cancer that I have? The twitter conversation about the Turkey Vulture was hilarious but I’m only half-kidding about this. Things are going quite well for me right now but I’ll take any miracle cures down the road if I need to. Who knew reading Twitter could potentially save your life! I forwarded the link to my doctor and asked him if I should have Turkey Vulture for Thanksgiving. Let’s see what he says.
