Alternative therapies for breast cancer

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Herbal remedies were used by 13.5% of 379 San Francisco residents diagnosed with breast cancer between 1990 and 1992, Marion Lee, PhD, University of California at San Francisco, et al., report in a study in the Jan. 5 Journal of the National Cancer Institute. African-American, Chinese, Latino and non-Hispanic white women were interviewed over the phone, with Chinese women most likely to use herbal therapies (22%) and Caucasians least likely (8%). Megavitamin use was reported by 8.2% of subjects, with African-Americans tallying the highest response rate (11%). The researchers note additional studies measuring these therapies' outcomes should be conducted, and physicians should discuss the use of herbal remedies with their patients
