Remedies threat to cancer care

Many cancer patients risk compromising their treatment by using complementary remedies, research suggests.

Scientists at London's Homerton Hospital warn remedies such as garlic, cod liver oil and St John's Wort pose a risk of side effects.

The research is published in the British Journal of Cancer.
