Unfortunately, we live in a litigious society and we can no longer share or put ourselves “out there” for others without first protecting ourselves. So, please forgive my disclaimer….I wish I didn’t need one.
I am not a doctor and I don’t play one on the Web (or TV).
That title is meant to make you chuckle but, in reality, I want everyone to understand that this is my journey and my journey alone. If I write something or if I find some research that helps you in some way, then I feel good but, if it does not speak to you or help you then please discard it. It is important that every decision that you make is your own and one based upon your own research. I really believe everyone has an individual path and that we must find our own destiny. Please see me as simply a fellow traveler that is walking along side of you on this journey and is willing to share his stories of success and failure.
All of the information presented on this website should be regarded as simply friendly opinions based on my personal experience and research. None of the information on my website or linked to by my website should be interpreted as medical advice by me. I’m not making an attempt to prescribe any medical treatment — and the information contained on this website is not intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a doctor or qualified health practitioner of any kind.
My statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and the information on this website is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. I am also not a registered dietician dispensing dietary advice.
I’m using the following modified disclosure that I copied and modified from Chris Wark which he copied from somebody else and maybe they copied it from somebody else.
Why do I have ads on my website?
Well, I have to be honest, I’m hoping to off set the cost of my treatments and maintaining this blog. Cancer is a pretty expensive disease. 🙁
I started this primarily to share my experience and information with anyone who wants to know. Ads and affiliate programs help cover the costs involved with running this site. I could easily plaster ads all over this site and make more money. But the message is more important than the money. So if a company that makes a product I love wants to advertise I say “Yes!” If Pepsi wants to advertise, I say “no”.
That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.
If I ever interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this, as I would if I used an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me no cents. If someone gives me a sweet t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, ditto. Disclaimers all over.
To cover my bases and to preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true: Writer got fed, got some gadgets, got paid, got stock options and/or promotional items. There ‘nuf said.
