Hi, I bought some for my husband to drink, you can get it in the grocery store.  I first heard of it on someone's post here, he or she listed some natural things they had included in their fighting this beast.  A friend from work also drinks it, she is not a CA patient but drinks her share of wine, says it's supposed to help detox the liver. Figure it couldn't hurt, have no idea if it  helps.  Feel better doing something.

Thank you for response. Ilon the label indicates dand lion fights with cance but not sure it really does. Herbal stuff is also questionable and I don’t want  my CEA increasing.

Thanks

There is a research group in Windsor Ontario that did a study on this and had positive enough results that they started a company to develop it further. In a nutshell, they found it triggers apoptosis, and also helps to prevent metastasis of CRC.

Here is a bit on the research I found:

This is definitely worth the read

An important part of this is that you have to brew it really strong. For my typical day, I get to work at 6:30 and start a cup brewing. I put that on my cup warmer for the whole day, then I drink it when I'm almost ready to go home. Alternatively, you could simmer it on the stove for a couple hours.

Based on the research I've read, that is how long the studies were actually steeping the root in order to get everything out of it. I would say the resulting brew is about as bitter as black coffee.

It is ONE of the things I do anyway.
