Bitter melon

I just read in the ST Louis Post Dispatch that a researcher there received a grant(albeit it small, about 40,000) to research the effect of a natural herb called Bitter Melon on Head/Neck cancers. Wondering if anyone has heard of this before. Try googling it for information. I thought some of you out there might be interested. It can't hurt, right? I think GNC carries it if you want to try it.

now that treatment is done.  But I'd still check with my Dr. and verify that it would be ok to take, or if you should wait till the thyroid issue is cleared up.

Good advice. We meet with the ENT surgeon on Monday regarding the thyroid issue. Thanks dear Phrannie
