There are other things that actually work. And a lot less expensive.....

 

Best of health,

I read it in a magazine that this tea works specifically on colon cancer. I dont believe home remedies will heal you on their on. But I like teas and they will certainly not hurt me.

there are many substances in may plants, including teas, which apprear to inhibit cancer cell prolifieration, at least in a lab setting, if not yet proven in the human body or animal model. In researching Yerba Mate tea last year I found that the leaf drying process, which can involve smoke, appears to increase the chances of several kinds of cancers...

 In general, teas are a healthy addition to your diet.  This is the only tea I found to be problematic because of the drying process involving smoke...

as for Taheebo tea, here is a google scholar search:

http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=taheebo+tea+colon+cancer&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C10

 

same search with Green tea instead appears to show more evidence as an anti-cancer agent:

 then there are apples:

one could do the same to search for any food.   Don't use google though, use google scholar..

I had realized the apples were that good for one.  Glad my grandson loves them so well!

I use Lemmon Balm Tea.   It tastes great, High antioxidents, no caffeine, keeps me hydrated, and I can grow it in my yard!   When people are trying to sell you stuff for a great expense, maybe rethink their claim.

 

Best Always,  mike

PS I really do grow my own tea!

I found air dryed (not smoked) version of this tea. 

Helps to fight cancer or not, it's a great tasting drink.
