    Innovative ways of curing and preventing cancers.  I have written two articles based on his book: "Are You Fever Phobic?" and "Drinking Milk— It's Pros and Cons."  The first article tells you that we probably should not fear fever because we know scientifically that fever is a protective mechanism.  So, next time when you reach for medications such as NSAIDS or antibiotics, think twice.  In the second article, it discusses the pros and cons of drinking milk.  For human babies, mother's milk is simply the best.  Don't substitute cow milk with it.  It also lists five main reasons you should avoid drinking cow milk.
