REMEDY

SOME CHINESE PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT CANCER CAN BE CURED
BY EATING THE BRAINS OF A MONKEY.
THE BRAINS SHOULD BE THOSE OF A RECENTLY KILLED MONKEY,
AND THEY ARE EATEN RAW.

Submitter comment: INFORMANT SAYS HIS UNCLE TRIED THIS METHOD OF CURE,
WITH APPARENT SUCCESS.
THIS STORY CONCERNING HIS UNCLE'S SUPPOSED CURE
WAS LATER PUBLISHED IN A CHINESE NEWSPAPER.
THIS STORY IS NOT BELIEVED BY INFORMANT.
