Please be clear, no one is saying these herbs are not without any side-effects. Equally they may conflict with some drugs. The important point is that we are still discovering many of their benefits, albeit very slowly, because individual local herbalists just do not have the funds to conduct large scale clinical trials like the drug companies do. You should seriously consider the use of herbs as a part of your integrative cancer-fighting program. They just might make a serious difference to your health. But please make sure you go to an expert medical herbalist for clear and informed advice.
