    When it can replace a gorgeous Thai or Taiwanese or Japanese twink in a naked gogo bar and then join me for the best sex, then I'll take it more seriously!!

    Evolution/progress is inevitable whether we accept it or not

    There are a few variations of this Quote but I like this one: Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old

    It might not be offensive ore meant as an insult, I'd rather be referred to as mature.

    Old and mature do not necessarily mean the same thing - there are plenty that are old and immature

    Why wouldn't the proposed treatment be evaluated in a clinical trial, if it purports to have any merit?

    Because it takes time, finances, institutional sponsors, and other resources to deal with multiple red tapes, hurdles and bureaucracies, imposed both by governments and the competitors.

    What’s wrong with letting one try, I don’t know, listening to music, or breathing exercises, or concoctions of some herbs or spices, as long as they do not interfere with treatments they are undergoing through their physicians/clinics?

    How about the benefits of placebo effects? They sure have been reviewed and researched!

    The fried chicken for breakfast thing is out of the ordinary for Japanese, but drinking beer at 7am while starting a vacation is not. Still, I'm always surprised by this behavior whenever I start a trip in Japan on a long-haul bus.

    I thought Japanese breakfast staple was Natto or a type of congee…

    I don’t think I could do beer for breakfast. To me, early morning beverage is Bloody Mary (or, Maria when in Jalisco), unless, of course, it’s the hair of the fog that bit you… For late breakfast/brunch I enjoy well drinks: Mimosa, Screwdriver, Bellini, Campari Orange… Irish coffee is good at any time of day or night, as is tea with a generous splash of cognac or brandy (sorry, I can’t do milk with my tea).

    For years I use Kayak.com to find my flights as seems to work well for me

    Kayak also had an option of selecting +-3 days for both outbound and return dates, which effectively captures 7 days of flights each way and uncovers those airlines and routes that may only be available on certain days of week

    Like any treatment for any serious illness, one should only accept treatments which have been subjected to scientific scrutiny, including randomized controlled trials conducted at reputable cancer centers. 

    Unless you are running out of time and proposed holistic/non-traditional “treatments” do not interfere with protocol(s) recommended by your physicians.
