    The part about carrots or veggies still having dirt on them and that dirt is a dirt based probiotics…. thought… juicing carrots is supposed to be really good, do you think part of that could be the probiotics (along with the vitamins in carrots)??? When I juice I use carrot bunches and don’t peel and get those dirty spots off. I just shove them in…. interesting.

    I want to specially thank Rick Simpson for saving my wife’s life with his healing oil. some years back my friend Mitchel was diagonized with a deadly disease cancer of the lungs, we try all medication all to no avail, we also try to do the oil our selves but we were doing more harm than worse. until I saw a post on facebook on how the cannabis oil had cured a cancer patient, I quickly emailed the mail: ricksimpsoncancercure001@gmail.com from that very moment we just have to give it a trier, instantly we got a reply from him asking us what the exact cancer problem that my friend Rose has, we explained every details of it to him and he told us, that his oil will heal my wife cancer problem only if we can order for it as soon as possible.
    He calculated the dosage for us to buy i think the dosage he calculated was 60grams of the oil which we ordered plus 30grams maintenance free and also with a body lotion and soap. He told us that if we order it online now by the next 48hours the medication will get to our door step through the delivery services, we decided to give it a try and behold when we did exactly 48hours of ordering the medication came to our door step through the delivery agent and deliver it to us. immediately we emailed Rick back that we have gotten the medication, and the usage instruction manual was also delivered to us. my friend Mitchel started the medication immediately just after a month of using Rick Simpson cannabis oil, Mitchel is now free from cancer problem, she is living a healthy life my utmost priority of sharing this short testimony is for those that are suffering from my kind of cancer diseases or if your friend or family members are suffering from this deadly disease, please don’t die in silence there is a cure for your cancer today don’t waste anytime further you have to email Rick Simpson directly and save your live and the lives of others
