Cancer Care is a carefully formulated combination of powerful herbs that have each been shown in clinical studies to assist in the healing and/or prevention of certain types of cancers. Working synergistically together, the herbs in this formula help to activate the body's own defenses, thereby allowing it to protect and heal itself.
