After all my mothers complications I have done much research on ipi, IL-2 and the supposed benefits or laetrile, which is a substance in apricots and peaches, which has a special emzyme that “attacks” cancer cells. I’m an aspiring doctor and doing clinical trials this year and will (hopefully!) graduate high school with a C.N.A. With all of the tan rage these days I hope to be proudly pale.
