HI Debbie, Tiger here, I am just passing along some info that my health food guy told me. We asked him about my taking the primrose oil and he told me absolutely not because it has something to do with estrogen and will increase tumour size . I cant remember specifics, or your full medical story, but maybe you could look into it further to make sure it is safe for you to be taking with your specific cancer, you know, type of cancer, estrogen + or -, etc

I just want you to be safe and healthy.

hugs from Tiger

    Dear Tiger,
    Thank you for the info. I have an appt. with my onocoligist on Mon. I will be sure to find out about that. I know someone else told me that maybe I shouldn't be taking the black cohosh because they thought it had soy so I will be checking that out also. Thank you again for your concern.I will let you know what I find out.
    God Bless
