Warren Buffett Has Stage 1 Prostate Cancer

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Flashing headlines to conclude tax day:

  • BUFFETT DIAGNOSED WITH STAGE I PROSTATE CANCER
  • WARREN BUFFETT SAYS NO INCIDENCE OF CANCER ELSEWHERE
  • BERKSHIRE SAYS CONDITION ISN'T 'REMOTELY LIFE-THREATENING'
  • BUFFETT: TESTS SHOW NO INCIDENCE OF CANCER ELSEWHERE IN BODY

CNBC adds that Buffett will start a two-month treatment course in July.

Full Berkshire press release:

To the Shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway:

 

This is to let you know that I have been diagnosed with stage I prostate cancer. The good news is that I’ve been told by my doctors that my condition is not remotely lifethreatening or even debilitating in any meaningful way. I received my diagnosis last Wednesday. I then had a CAT scan and a bone scan on Thursday, followed by an MRI today. These tests showed no incidence of cancer elsewhere in my body.

 

My doctors and I have decided on a two-month treatment of daily radiation to begin in mid-July. This regimen will restrict my travel during that period, but will not otherwise change my daily routine.

 

I feel great – as if I were in my normal excellent health – and my energy level is 100 percent. I discovered the cancer because my PSA level (an indicator my doctors had regularly checked for many years) recently jumped beyond its normal elevation and a biopsy seemed warranted.

 

I will let shareholders know immediately should my health situation change. Eventually, of course, it will; but I believe that day is a long way off.

 

Warren E. Buffett

And some perspectives already prepared by Carol Loomis of Fortune

Last week was the most extraordinary week in Warren Buffett's history – but he lived his business life as if this was the most normal time in the world.

 

As Buffett announced today, he was diagnosed with Stage I prostate cancer last Wednesday, after a biopsy the previous day. On Thursday he had a CAT scan and bone scan, with these showing that the cancer had not spread elsewhere in his body.

 

On that same Thursday, he and a small group had dinner with his non-cousin, entertainer Jimmy Buffett, at a new Omaha restaurant called J. Coco's. Jimmy was in town for a performance two days later.

 

The following day – Friday – Buffett, the elder, was host to 160 business students from such universities as MIT, University of Chicago, University of Tennessee, and Peru's Universidad del Pacifico. Following the usual routine for such visits (there are six scheduled for this school year) the students toured two Berkshire retail subsidiaries, held a two-and-a-half hour Q&A session with Buffett, and lunched at one of his favorite restaurants, Piccolo's.

 

The riff at Piccolo's was that Jimmy Buffett turned up for lunch, creating an instant sensation.

 

At Jimmy's performance next night at Century/Link Center, the first person on stage was Warren Buffett, who deadpanned a "Welcome to the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting."  Actually, the only thing dissonant about his greeting was that the Berkshire meeting, which is held at that same Center, spreads out to overflow rooms and actually draws many more people than the standing-room-only (and wildly enthusiastic) crowd that Jimmy Buffett attracted.

 

On Sunday Buffett caught his breath. Then, on Monday morning at 7:30 AM, he met with his doctors to discuss courses of treatment for his newly discovered illness.

.....support of a communist big govt tax system.....

Wow, it's McCarthyism all over again. Obama is a socialist!  Obama is Hitler!  Obama is a communist!  USSA!  AmeriKa! 

Isn't funny how Ronald Reagan is worshipped by the conservatives even though he raised taxes countless times and fleeced the social security accounts of the American middle class, yet Obama hints at raising taxes on the 1% and all the right-wing bootlicking lemmings (most of whom won't even be affected) suddenly start shouting some nonsense about communism?  Reagan raised taxes on middle income familes to help balance his budget after cutting taxes for the rich, and the right wing worships him; Obama, on the other hand, tries to raise taxes back to their normal levels after (a) 10 years of the Bush tax cuts and (b) after the worst recession since the Great Depression and (c) after fighting two simultaneous wars and (d) after 30 years of "trickle up" economics where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer......and suddenly he's MARX or HITLER or MAO or any of the other infamous villians from history!

Repugnicants and Libertardians are so funny.

hey shit face..the only "Normal" tax level is NO tax level.  Marx was a waste of life. Hitler was a blood thirsty, murderer and MAO was no better. Bush, Clintong, Bush, Obama.. same boss.

The 1% (buffet rule) was a ruse. The amount it would have raked in was some ultra small ratio of the total debt.. so insignificant (not unlike your life). It was a distraction for the  muppets to garner support for the camp(lain)er in chief. Buuuuuut, I gather you dont have enough grey matter in that oblong melon of yours to see that. 

Not that I'm a super huge fan of Reagan..but here's his quote from his 1982 speech where he let us know taxes were being raised.. 

"Make no mistake about it, this whole package is a compromise."

So you see.. it wasn't just him and it wasn't just the republicans. Taxes were raised on a bi-partisan compromise. So if you're going to spout shit from the fullness of your Obama-cum filled ass..then at least get it right. 

...and for the record.. the only trickle up economic systems are that of the left... where poverty trickles up. You live in a plutocracy, you dumb fuck.. if you think (or any republican for that matter) thinks we live in anything but a left aligned country, then you need to have your head examined with a hammer. 

The Democrats AND the Republicans are two sides to the same coin. 

We libertarians have made our pop-corn and are watching both  moronic parties battle it out.

Remind me again why I have to BUY A PERMIT to get a pistol?  you do realize that is completely unconstitutional. That is a complete impediment to owning a gun which is my right. SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.. plain fucking Engrish.. 

Oh .. so they can't seem to take our guns completely away, so they'll try to make them useless by driving out the manufacturing of guns with bullshit requirements (micro - stamping.. small cap magazines). 

You know what.. I should be able to own exactly every small arms weapon that the military owns and in every configuration they operate with. 

As long as I have to buy my right to own a gun and explain why other than i have a right to it.. then that right is GONE!! 

See, the problem is that when something literal doesn't fit your kommie narrative.. you choose to twist and interpret. Then, when an interpretation doesn't fit.. you try to make it some literal example. You fuckers change the rules as you play the game.

The point of choosing is the concept that you don't fucking grasp. Gun manufacturers have frequently stopped offering things like 10 round magazines for some weapons because it costs them too much money. So what the fuck good is a gun if I can't get a magazine for it? 

 I choose to even the playing field with thugs who carry.. simple concept that again<gasp>.. your excuse for logic cannot grasp.

Un-educated fuck.. there was point in time when we had no income tax. You should read about that. And don't try to flip the context, you meant income tax and so did I. 

Not once did I elude to some archaic or anarchistic form of society. You want to own your race baiting, "let's not indict the black panthers for a 10k DoA reward, but we'll investigate Ted Nugent for exercising 1A", liberal, bullshit... if you want to own that as well as the mother fucking FACT that when something gets subsidized, it is almost (%99.9 of the time) an eventual failure.

Yeah.. you go ahead and wish for your idiotic, utopia where the gov't sucks your dick and everything is "fair" and no one is considered exceptional because it's not fair to those who are not. Yeah, you own that shit pancake of a world. I'll take one where people work for what they have, earn their way, HAVE THE FUCKING RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH A GUN, and aren't anal gaped by bullshit, "progressive" policies and keynesian economics that have turned my children and probably their children into debt slaves before they knew what hit them. 

Yeah.. you lost the argument, but not because you couldn't keep with with the words that I use for emphasis.. but because you're FUCKING CLUELESS as to how the world should work. 

You couldn't handle freedom so you let the gov't take it from you.. P U S S Y.

"Cannabinoids Kill Cancer."

Just been reading about this, including the personal accounts of those who have made themselves cancer free using this knowledge, complete with before and after test results.

This guy is going around Canada curing people of cancer using hash oil:

http://phoenixtears.ca/

He claims that a pound of chronic will yield ~55 grams of hash oil, and that this taken orally over a 2-3 month period (or applied topically if skin cancer) will cure most serious cancers.

I know the route I'd take if diagnosed.

We will look back at modern cancer treatment (e.g., radiation, chemo) one day as we do today on the past practice of drilling holes in people's heads in order to treat mental disorders.

Yes Rick Simpson was a pioneer curing all types of cancer in Canada using Cannabis oil to whoever needed it free of charge.  This knowledge is fast circulating the globe.  Cannabis Science http://www.cannabisscience.com/ is one relatively new publically traded research company in this field.  They post fresh case studdies on their site with pictures showing the incredible effects that cannanbinoids have on cancer.  A new documentary was just screened in AZ called 'Chronic Future Killing Cancer'  I hope it goes viral when its released publically.

Not only does Silver kill central bankers, it is the world’s most powerful natural antibacterial and antifungal agent, the ability of colloidal silver to protect against viral pathogens has, until recently, not been fully embraced by the medical community.

In the case of HIV-1 or Aids it inhibits HIV-1 virus from binding to host cells, learn more here.

And if you're worried about the Oligarchs dropping some new deadly strain of Influenza to further Agenda 21 it is by far the best defence against such a scenario.

People like you are dangerous.

 

 

  • There is little evidence to support therapeutic claims made for colloidal silver products;
  • The risk to consumers of silver toxicity outweighs the value of trying an unsubstantiated treatment, and bacterial resistance to silver can occur

you'r crazy!

silver toxicity??? whatta bullshit !!!

one can drink liters of colloidal silver without any side effects.

My whole family is using it for years now and we are doing very well.

 

The idiots like that blue man is giving a silver bad name.

When making colloidal silver please don't use salt or baking soda or you will turn blue like that idiot you can watch on youtube.

Dangerous to big pharma.

 

There is little evidence to support therapeutic claims made for colloidal silver products.

There are thousands of articles published supporting the medical use of silver...here a but a few:

University of Texas Colloidal Silver Effectiveness Study

Colloidal Silver Antibacterial Study - Microbiologists at Brigham Young University ( BYU )

Colloidal Silver and Natural Bentonite

Colloidal Silver, Healing Clay, and Skin Cancer

Dr. Robert O Becker

Silver Iontophoresis

Attributes of Silver Particles and Silver Solutions

 

The risk to consumers of silver toxicity outweighs the value of trying an unsubstantiated treatment, and bacterial resistance to silver can occur.

 

Pure silver is inert and non toxic which is exactly what colloidal silver is made from. 

  1. The valence of Ag+ Silver is + (1). Hence Ag+. Silver's valence makes silver non-toxic.
  2. Silver is dulciment and is used in everything from medical tables to socks to deodorant.
  3. There is no toxicity to silver when even compared to innocuous products such as aspirin to ameliorate inflammation etc..
  4. The viral loads of patients are reduced to near insignificant with the use of the silver. This is a fact.
  5. Risk Factor from taking Silver is "0" according to FDA'S own Department:

Public Health Service
Center For Drug Evaluation and Research
Office of Training and Communication
Freedom of Information Staff
HFD-205
5600 Foshers Lane 12 8 05
Rockville, Maryland, USA 20857

***Conventional antibiotics kill Americans and kill year after year over 100,000 USA citizens per year and no one says a word.

 

Efforts should be made to curb the illegal availability of colloidal silver products, which is a significant public health issue

Buy a 9 volt battery, 999 silver wire, connect two wires to each terminal and dangle at least 6 inches in a glass of distilled water supported by a popsicle stick. Let it set for 2-3 hours and VOILA Colloidal Silver baby!

Smiler03, you're a Big Pharma rusty trombone blowing TROLL and you can fuck off.    "Bacterial resistance to silver"   LOLOLOL

I get a couple patches of dermatatis sometimes in the winter, but not this past one (because it was mild or because the silver topical remedy I used the year before CURED iy).

I went to the local dermatologist (one of MANY in my city).    There are like 15 guys and they all see dozens of people a day.   The waiting room was like a smaller version of an airport waiting area.   The Big Pharma trained doctor prescribed be a cream that had all kinds of side effects.   It cost almost $200 to fill for a little tube.   The MD spent about 3 minutes with me and made a chunk.    It took me 2 MONTHS to see me even at a large practice.   I was desperate a week before the appt due to itching and skin flaring up bad.   I ordered a little bottle of a silver get - the kind they sell on First Majestic's website.   It came in the mail the day before the appt.    I decided to try it before I filled the prescription.    Applying the gel only 2x daily (a couple small dabs on the finger) in a few days everything cleared up COMPLETELY even though researching things like eczema and dermatatis and other skin ailments  that there you couldn't cure the condition, only hope to control it.

So with silver I cured a skin condition for less than $10, with no doctor visit.    No wonder these trolls don't want people to know about NATURAL CURES THAT WORK AND ARE INEXPENSIVE.

Just like the financial industry, the medical/PHARMA community is a gang of thieves, cheats, and guilty of culpable negligent murder of millions.

I was ready to dig a hole for my pet monster (featured in my avatar) last year.  Not one, but two, tick-borne diseases, plus an ear infection that wormed its way inside his smiling skull.  He could barely walk, and when he did his head was always tilted to one side.  Months of antibiotics did nothing, so I decided to give colloidal silver a whirl.  Four days into it, his ear infection was gone.  Another couple weeks, and he was bouncing around like he had a Hoppity Horse under him.  I use it to ward off colds since I work with the public.  I never get sick anymore.  Make it with distilled water.

Of course not.  That's why said 80-year-old (if he is otherwise in good health and expects to make it to at least 90) ought to have a few gold coins stashed somewhere.  I suspect they'll roll out the red carpet at whatever hospital in whatever part of the world he decides to get treatment.  Hopefully, the doctor won't report the transfer of "illegally-hoarded" gold.

I do not care for his politics but I hope he is not just submitting to annual PSA testing and then getting biopsies until somethings comes out positive. In the 70s I was assigned prostate cancer as a topic for our weekly discussion. Even then it was known that a majority of men have prostate cancer on autopsy (age 70 and older). This suggests that if you biopsy enough you will find it. Frank Zappa proved to all that this is a nasty disease in younger men. As we age however it becomes 'normal' (by definition). If I were Buffett I'd ask a lot of hard questions about risk and benefit before submitting to any serious treatment.
