Too little or too much fluid, can create an environment that we are not show with our A game and give cancer an open door to take a shot at us. It is an easy task to perform.

(photo)When we had cancer, we went to the cancer treatment, with cycle of hours sitting at the hospital, plugging in to get chemotherapy and being sick a few days later after each treatment from the side effect.
