  1. I will always be thankful to the people at Stanford for all they did for dad. He was so proud of the dramatic improvement in his health that you helped him achieve. His spirits were lifted every time he visited Palo Alto. Thank you. And thank you for having this video so I can see my dad happy and healthy before the cancer that took his life. He was honored to be in it, and he hoped that it helped change other people's lives like it did his.

    Dad could not speak highly enough about everyone at Stanford. The staff, the doctors, everyone. He had so much respect for Dr. Banerjee and Dr. Fowler. They are not just great doctors, they are great people who care about their patients.

  2. I am a heart patient and I would benefit greatly from eating fish. Fish is loaded with good nutrients for my heart.  Though, every package of frozen fish that I look at has way too much sodium for me to eat it.  When I look at the ingredients, they all contain STPP.  The STPP makes the sodium level five to ten times what it normally is and it is only there to absorb water making the fish heavy.  How can we be leaders in health and welfare of our people when we allow this wanton use of STPP just to make money on the unsuspecting consumers?
