LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: Another aspect of politics, Rudolph Giuliani, mayor of New York, is conducting a news conference right now talking about his prostate cancer treatment.
(JOINED IN PROGRESS)
MAYOR RUDOLPH GIULIANI (R), NEW YORK: Is that there are lots of option for treating this form of cancer. And, as numerous doctors have told me, almost anyone that you choose, any responsible option you choose, is going to give you a very, very good chance of curing it.
And my advice to people is that: Don't be afraid of cancer. It's curable, it's treatable, and it can be dealt with, if you deal with it. And you take the tests that necessary to detect it at an early stage, spend the time do that, whether it's prostate cancer, breast cancer, or any form of cancer, and then put yourself in the hands of responsible physicians, of which there are many, particularly in the city of New York, and then deal with it.
And the choice that I made is a good one for me. There are 10 other variations that would be good ones for other people.
I want to again thank all of the people that have helped me, assisted me, all of them that have given me support, particularly people who have dealt with prostate cancer and other forms of cancer, who come up to me at parades, at rallies, when I am playing golf, and explain to me what they have been through, and it really helps a lot. It helps to elucidate what is best for you.
And I also feel that in that way you can give something back to other people and give them some advice about how they can handle this and deal with it. I am very fortunate to have a lot of people that help me and support me. And I feel very bad for people who don't have that support system.
So if there is any way that we can help them, sometimes this experience allows you to do that.
And otherwise, there was one murder last night, that is one too many, but there were two more -- there were two more situations in which people have reported -- have reported that there's some kind of contaminant in their water. The police are investigating it. They're not sure at this point whether it's accurate or inaccurate. But they will probably have a report for you later in the day, as to whether those reports are accurate, or because of the suggestion and everything else that is going on, that might be attributable to that. But they will know that better later today.
WATERS: Mayor Rudy Giuliani, as you know, we have reported the story of three cases of bottled water being found with chemicals in it, not the same brand of water, but all brand being found in local restaurants. There is an investigation going on. That was the reference there by Mayor Giuliani, who also brought us up to date on his cancer treatment.
