The doctor's opinion

"Hasta donde yo conozco, desmiento absolutamente que tenga cáncer. No tiene ningún tumor maligno. En un paciente de 80 años puede ocurrir cualquier cosa, pero su situación es estable", aseveró en varias ocasiones. "Tiene una actividad intelectual intacta, fantástica", dijo. El Pais

“As far as I know, (f)idel (c)astro does not have cancer.” This is a translation of the first part of the above sentence, uttered by Dr. José Luis García Sabrido, the communist doctor that was flown to Cuba from Spain by the Cuban authorities to examine the cancer that has governed Cuba for almost 48 years. In the doctor’s opinion, the cancer does not have cancer. Where are the facts? Where is the scientific data that show beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is no cancer? Of course, data can be fabricated, and perhaps the doctorcito is not willing to sacrifice it all for the old dying-saur.

Orlando, older folks who have cancer have the advantage that it advances slower than younger folks. This is what a surgeon told me a few years ago about a relative of mine. Whether Castro has cancer or not, it is irrelevant. He is not the same person he was before, and I doubt it he will do much in the future. Just consider how long he's been out of the picture.

Read this article in La Nueva Cuba about Castro's visit to Argentina:

De impostor nada. El Dr. García Sabrido es el jefe del equipo de cirugía de un gran hospital de Madrid. Además de ser un excelentísimo profesional y un gran amigo de mi familia. Too bad you are buying all the american propaganda and cannot think for yourself!
