    Patient and doctors believe divine intervention helped aggressive brain tumor go into remission

    Durham, N.C. — By all medical standards, Andy Delbridge should be dead. The North Carolina father of two was diagnosed three years ago with the most aggressive and dangerous type of brain tumor.

    "It was just devastation. I thought, 'I'm not going to make it, I'm just not going to make it,' " says Delbridge.
    His chances of surviving were no more than a few months.
    "Half the patients are dead within 12 months of diagnosis. The overall survival at several years out is felt to be 2, maybe 5 percent," says Dr. Henry Friedman, a neurooncologist at Duke University.
    But despite long odds, Delbridge underwent surgery, radiation and painful chemotherapy. And while putting his trust in doctors at Duke University Hospital, Delbridge also put his faith in God.
    Members of Delbridge's church prayed for him daily. He and his family asked for divine intervention.
    "I prayed for a miracle, I really did. I said, 'God, I know you can do it,' " says Andy’s wife, Nancy.

    "The minute you think that you have no hope, you are down for the count. So you've got to always think there's hope," says Andy.
    Today Delbridge is cancer free. Not only is the brain tumor gone, so are the growths that had appeared near his heart. They simply disappeared, without surgery.
    For decades the medical community basically ignored the impact of religion on health. But in recent years, scientists have begun studying the possibility that faith matters.
    Dr. Harold Koenig leads Duke University's Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health.
    "There are hundreds and hundreds of studies — scientific studies — that show that religious people are healthier," says Koenig.
    Even Dr. Friedman — who treated Delbridge's cancer — says faith can't be ignored.
    "I think it's critical. I can't quantify it. I can't measure it. I can't do a test to prove that there is some special ingredient to therapy associated with faith," he says.
    Still, others say people of faith are simply more optimistic — which means less stress — and that in general they lead healthier lives.
    "There’s virtually no evidence about the personal benefits of prayer. Certainly lots of people find it rewarding, but there's very little evidence about any health benefits," says Dr. Richard P. Sloan, associate professor of psychiatry and director of behavioral medicine at Columbia University.
    But Andy Delbridge has all the evidence he needs. Delbridge says, "I believe he answered my prayers. I really do."

    Negative Health Effects Are Numerous
    By Buddy T, About.com Guide
    Updated March 05, 2011

    Although legalization activists and many marijuana users believe smoking pot has no negative effects, scientific research indicates that marijuana use can cause many different health problems.
    Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States. When smoked, it begins to effect users almost immediately and can last for one to three hours. When it is eaten in food, such as baked in brownies and cookies, the effects take longer to begin, but usually last longer.

    Short-Term Effects
    The short-term effects of marijuana include:
    •Distorted perception (sights, sounds, time, touch)

    •Problems with memory and learning

    •Loss of coordination

    •Trouble with thinking and problem-solving

    •Increased heart rate, reduced blood pressure

    Sometimes marijuana use can also produce anxiety, fear, distrust, or panic.
    More mindless propaganda. Mere assertions that ignore the large body of scientific evidence and personal testimony by highly intelligent and able people for the positive effects of the plant.

    The effects labeled as "distortions of sound" by the uptight control freaks are known to music lovers as a great enhancement to music appreciation. That's what Carl Sagan reported (note that, contrary to the propaganda you posted, he said it enhanced his learning experience too):
    "The cannabis experience has greatly improved my appreciation for art, a subject which I had never much appreciated before. The understanding of the intent of the artist which I can achieve when high sometimes carries over to when I'm down. This is one of many human frontiers which cannabis has helped me traverse."

    "A very similar improvement in my appreciation of music has occurred with cannabis. For the first time I have been able to hear the separate parts of a three-part harmony and the richness of the counterpoint. I have since discovered that professional musicians can quite easily keep many separate parts going simultaneously in their heads, but this was the first time for me. Again, the learning experience when high has at least to some extent carried over when I'm down. The enjoyment of food is amplified; tastes and aromas emerge that for some reason we ordinarily seem to be too busy to notice. I am able to give my full attention to the sensation. A potato will have a texture, a body, and taste like that of other potatoes, but much more so. Cannabis also enhances the enjoyment of sex - on the one hand it gives an exquisite sensitivity, but on the other hand it postpones orgasm: in part by distracting me with the profusion of image passing before my eyes. The actual duration of orgasm seems to lengthen greatly, but this may be the usual experience of time expansion which comes with cannabis smoking."

    "I do not consider myself a religious person in the usual sense, but there is a religious aspect to some highs. The heightened sensitivity in all areas gives me a feeling of communion with my surroundings, both animate and inanimate."

    "When I'm high I can penetrate into the past, recall childhood memories, friends, relatives, playthings, streets, smells, sounds, and tastes from a vanished era. I can reconstruct the actual occurrences in childhood events only half understood at the time. Many but not all my cannabis trips have somewhere in them a symbolism significant to me which I won't attempt to describe here, a kind of mandala embossed on the high. Free-associating to this mandala, both visually and as plays on words, has produced a very rich array of insights."

    "The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world."
    Your ignorant propaganda is so typical of ignorant people trapped in a mindless religion.

    CWH posts nothing but ignorant bullshit that has been debunked for years, and he tells folks to watch out, cuz there are "tons of wild claims in the internet."



    You are one piece of work Mr. CWH.

    So when are you going to admit that you have posted a mountain of crap on this forum? I have debunked it and you ran and hid and refused to even answer. Just go and answer this post if you want to redeem your reputation from the trash bin.

    What a load of brainless crap. There is not one word in that article that proves Zeus, Yahweh, or Allah did anything for anyone. It could have been a spontaneous remission. Maybe he used Cannabis oil without telling anyone. Maybe someone slipped some cannabis oil into his food with telling him. You have no idea what really happened. That article is evidence of nothing ... except how desperate you are to prove something that is obviously false.

    Your god ignores at least 99.99% of all prayers! That's why "news" of someone having recovered after "praying" is thought to be "proof." In reality, it only proves how desperate Christians are to prove something they know is false. And you KNOW it is false. God does not, as a general rule, answer anyone's prayers. That's a proven fact and everyone knows it.

    Then would you mind telling us why your doctor prescribed you cannabis? What are you suffering from? Perhaps some wise guys in this forum can share how they overcome your suffering without use of cannabis.

    I can't tell you how lucky I am to be born in a country with a lot of freedom compared to your country of Singapore with it's prison-like prohibitions of everything from chewing gum to the mandatory death penalty for the "crime" of possessing a pound of a natural plant with amazing medicinal and therapeutic properties.
    I am also happy to tell you that I live in a country where it is very safe to walk alone even in the middle of the night without fear of being robbed, attacked or killed. Rampant shooting as that seen recently in US and Norway is non-existent in my country due to the very strict gun control law. Drug addicts are few in my country so are drug addiction related crimes. Cannabis and other opiate drugs are controlled drugs which only can be prescribed by a certified doctor. The purpose of this control is to prevent rampant use which will create more social problems
    than medical benefits. Singapore is not the only country that have strict narcotics possession laws so are Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan etc.

    It doesn't matter how it makes me look like when what I am doing is to encourage people to look at alternative views. Is that wrong? It's the same as you encouraging people to look at the bible God in an alternative view.

    More mindless propaganda. Mere assertions that ignore the large body of scientific evidence and personal testimony by highly intelligent and able people for the positive effects of the plant.
    There is no propaganda, are you saying that there is no negative effects of cannabis at all? What I am portraying here is that there are negative effects of using cannabis especially when it is abused. IS THAT SOMETHING WRONG? There is always two sides to a coin my friend and we must be aware of their positive and negative effects. I am not totally against the use of cannabis for curative purposes but I am against its abuse for other purposes. Is that wrong?

    That would be considered as abuse of cannabis which should be used only for curative purposes. There are many ways to creativity without the use of cannabis or narcotics and subjecting to their negative effects.

Why subject yourself to the negative effects of using cannabis or narcotics and the law when there are other means to achieve creativity. Might as well say Einstein used cannabis before he discovered his Theory of Relativity.

    There are other ways to achieve that such as imaginations, dreams and daydreaming.

    So is rampant abuse of cannabis and narcotics which will lead to social ills. Would you like to live in world where everybody is stoned?..this is madness.

    What reputation do I have now after all it has already been smeared by you. BTW, reputation is not in my vocabulary if my conscience is right and if I can save a soul. Am I wrong to portray the negative effects of Cannabis abuse and that there are flaws in the theory of evolution so that people can be more aware?....or....are you jealous of my good intentions?

    Why would I want to post my personal medical history on the web? Are you nuts? And even if I did, you'd be the last person I'd want to talk to about it because you are so hostile, accusative, non-communicative, and irrational. And besides that, you haven't even proven that you are not a Cleverbot! I've asked you a number of questions over and over and over again and you have refused to answer. And to top it off, my advocacy for cannabis legalization has nothing to do with me anyway.

    Your attitude totally sucks. You post lying videos by creationists and refuse to admit your error. You declare "evolution is bullshit" but you can't even state the most basic facts about the theory. I've told you that this makes you seem like a Creationist Cleverbot and you haven't even tried to engage me in any intelligent conversation.

    I think gun control laws are good. Our country has erred greatly in that regard.

    Drug "addicts" have nothing to do with this conversation since cannabis is not addictive like those other drugs. It's not even addictive like alcohol. And it's not an "opiate" - so again you display your ignorance. Your thinking is totally confused, as usual. You make false assertions and never repent. And worse, you don't realize what this says about the condition of your soul.

    It is not a good thing to encourage people to look at alternative views when those "alternative views" are presented as truth when in fact they are based on LIES, FRAUD, and DECEIT like that creationist video you posted. When are you going to respond to my challenge which shows the many posts you have refused to answer?

    I am not saying that there are no negative effects. Everything has negative effects. You can die by drinking too much water. I would be happy to talk to you about the good and the bad, but you are totally irrational and don't engage me in a serious discussion of the issue.

    What's wrong with using cannabis for its many psychological benefits? And again, you are confusing the issue suggesting that cannabis is like an addictive narcotic.

    Use is not abuse. It doesn't matter if there are many ways to creativity. That's no reason to reject a good one.

    So what? Let responsible adults choose their own methods. That's called freedom.

    What "rampant abuse of cannabis"? Again, you are showing your irrationality by mixing cannabis in with narcotics.

    Responsible use is not "a world where everybody is stoned." That's like saying alcohol should be prohibited or we'll have a world where everyone is drunk. Your comments are ridiculous.

    I have not smeared you in any way at all. You are the one who has chosen to post lies, fraud, and deceit and then run and hide and refuse to answer. Your reputation is being created by your actions and your actions alone.

    My two cents worth

    I think there may be a mis-communication here. Everybody in Singapore(And yes I have been there) do not distinguish between different types of narcotics.

    I understand why CWH maybe saying what he is saying but he needs to consider that Cannabis is not really much of a drug. Drinking alcohol would be worse for the body except for maybe the effects on the lungs. But having tried Cannabis a few times when I was younger I believe hash cookies may be a solution?

    As for Singapore being a safe country yes I agree but I have also had some bad experiences in "Little India" that were of some concern on my first day there!

    Even in the shopping malls such as Mustafa centre they will lock your bag before entering with a zip tie and you need to get it cut off before you leave.

    So for what it's worth the way CWH views Cannabis may be because of how his culture is conditioned.

    I understand why CWH maybe saying what he is saying but he needs to consider that Cannabis is not really much of a drug. Drinking alcohol would be worse for the body except for maybe the effects on the lungs. But having tried Cannabis a few times when I was younger I believe hash cookies may be a solution?

    As for Singapore being a safe country yes I agree but I have also had some bad experiences in "Little India" that were of some concern on my first day there!

    Even in the shopping malls such as Mustafa centre they will lock your bag before entering with a zip tie and you need to get it cut off before you leave.

    So for what it's worth the way CWH views Cannabis may be because of how his culture is conditioned.
    Your "two cents" are worth two bucks in my book!

    Thanks for the reasonable comments.

    Use of cannabis brings you in a flush, getting high, but timely, you'll go down again, even very down, "down and out".

    I think you might compare it to baptism.

    I used it, some times more and some times less, from my 18th until my 36th year. So it has very much influenced my life. I am now 62.

    I liked it very much, I liked to be stoned. Be stoned outside in the nature. But also in the (night-)city.
    Stoned I saw the heavens open. (In stargazing).
    Stoned I heard the strength of music. And discovered the essence of dance.
    Stoned I discovered the strength of the Hebrew bible.

    My Jewish teacher said "no"; you shouldn't do that, you must not use it.
    But I insisted on it. Which broke off our relation.
    I thought "l'vonah", translated as frankincense, must have been something like hashish.
    לְבֹנָה , written same as לְּבָנָה, (full) moon.
    It spoke to my imagination, even more since I was born with full moon (2nd of February 1950, the newyear of the trees).
    The "wise men" that followed the star brought it as present for baby Jesus.

    I knew the side-effects too ...
    And I've seen them in my neighbourhood. People going down and under.

    I am happy not to use it anymore.

    But some times I think: how would it be now?
