Unconventional therapies for cancer

A task force of the Canadian Breast Cancer Research Initiative has reviewed available information on Essiac, green tea, Iscador, hydrazine sulfate, vitamins A, C and E, and 714-X. The findings summarized in each article will provide physicians and patients with reliable information in this area. Accompanying the series is a general patient-information piece designed to assist people who are considering unconventional therapies and to promote open communication between patients and providers.
