Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said he’s improving after undergoing a second round of chemotherapy in Cuba to treat his cancer, and boasted that he’s never felt healthier.

“I could stand here talking for five hours,” he said.

The socialist leader, who returned from Cuba on Saturday, said he doesn’t know yet if he will need a third round of chemotherapy. He said his medical team also will decide if he needs a second round of radiation treatment.

    SOME BODY TELL MR. CHAVEZ HE NEEDS TO TAKE ON A HERBAL LIFESTYLE.

    WE KNOW THAT THE YOUNG SOURSOP LEAVES FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME CAN REDUCE THE CANCER CELLS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE CHEMO THAT JUST BOMB OUT GOOD AND BAD CELLS IN SEARCH OF THE CANCER.

    HE CAN PROBABLY HIRE HONOURABLE PRIEST KAILASH TO BRING HIM ON A BETTER FOOTING

    Why do we have to read about the health of despots such as Chavez? He would have done the world a favour if he had kicked the bucket.

    You are not GOD you have to die and suffer for all the things that you are doing to your people. You are afraid now I am sure you never thought of death before but it is real and you have to go one day.

    Everyone goes through denial when faced with a dreaded illness. That”s what I think is going on here. However, cancer is no respecter of persons. Just reminding you guys of this fact

    Some of you guys commenting here are real unrepentant ignorant fools. Want to take your silly, ridiculous politics everywhere.

    Be careful that you do not die sooner, and a more painful death than Hugo Chavez.

    Viva Chavez!!! Viva Venezuela!!!

        you are right but at the same time you have to wonder if chavez trying to fool people… remember it was he who said he has no cancer and that the chemo was for precaution sake

        now he says the cancer is not serious….that makes him a liar in my book eh

        I think you should do a little research before you post…People like chavez should not be in existance….research on how the people in venezuela live and what this man did to the buisnesses he could not take over, hotels he forced owners to vacat since they did not want to do as he said after spending millions. You have people living in places with just a plastic tapolin for separation, no running water, no electricity nothing. But he is going all over running his mouth, I am so sorry we had to link up with that type, but it is life. If you all only knew how many of the people live maybe you all would ask mr.skeritt not to take anything from chavez and ask him to give back what he already took. if you do your research properly, you will see all is not good in chavez world.
