Gavin,  Wow, I had NO idea about some of those items, but it makes total sense.  I don't think that all of those were covered in the info from my oncologist this morning, so I will be extra vigilant now that chemo has started today. 

Thank you, thank you,

Thanks, Gavin,  I'll check these new ones out.  My printer is on the fritz...new a new one, but as soon as it is set up, I will print off copies for my binder for easier reference.  Cool Dude!

I should add that there was only one point in time when my sisters white blood cell counts were really low that they rec avoiding raw foods, soft cheeses etc. Once its in the acceptable range, well washed fruits and veggies are ok.
