Mistletoe Extract Helps Fight Colon Cancer

People think of mistletoe as one of the important symbols of Christmas, but scientists have found that its extract also has the potential to be an alternative treatment for colon cancer. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the Western world. While mistletoe extract is already being used by colon cancer patients in Europe, patients from other countries like the United States and Australia are not yet benefiting from it because of a lack of scientific testing. Scientists at the University of Adelaide in Australia have recently taken an interest in how mistletoe extract could […]
