Using the IceSense3 system, IceCure said doctors performed the procedures on 146 patients, a majority (103) of whom were under monitoring for almost two years. The company reported that out of the 146 women, one saw the cancer recur.

    It is great news. Especially since a Universal Healthcare System discourages innovation.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    It's early days, but it looks good.

    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.
