This was Al Robertson in 1972 ... a week, flabby, depressed man whose hair had turned white and whose idea of an active afternoon was sitting quietly in the sun in his own backyard. His doctor's confirmed diagnosis: terminal cancer. However, Al Robertson began taking a self-treatment of vitamins which may have prolonged his life. Prompting the question: Has a cure for cancer been found in vitamins?

Here's active Al Robertson today, after five years of massive vitamin therapy. Al now explores desert back country in a dune buggy he rebuilt himself. Note, too (despite the sun's glint), that his hair has turned dark once again.
