About Dick Gregory
After disclosing in 2001 that he had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Dick Gregory, refused traditional medical treatment, including chemotherapy. He choose instead to undergo an alternative regimen consisting of a special diet, vitamins, exercise, and modern devices, which ultimately resulted in Gregory being cancer-free today. Mr. Gregory has spent a great deal of his life sharing the wisdom of his experience and about the virtues of a vegan raw food diet for health and disease prevention, with a comic twist that is exclusive and unique to the Gregory style.
