We have lots things to learn from them i think.
I found months ago this papper: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5362425/
to be aproved should have a clear function.
very interesting and ilustrative pics about efects, tree of effects.
I feel we are far from this medicine. To Watch close.
Apart of unkown adverse events/ interactions very dificult to get all this herbs .
Yes Jandro,China has a huge and complex history of cancer medicines from 100's of years.
Now west is very interested and found most of them are efficient on cancer stem cells.
And now In chemo-sensitivity test,they test for some of them.
But we know they test 16.000 chemicals on cancer stem cell(i dont know which compounds and included those above or not),and found Salinomycin is best.
And still %99 oncologists dont hear about it.Isnt it interesting?
