Research in rodents and test tubes has turned up many compounds that are active against cancer cells. But relatively few of these have been developed into cancer treatments. The established ways of treating cancer, such as chemotherapy and radiation, are often toxic and usually very expensive. Worse, they don’t always work.

This is the third in our three-part series on unconventional approaches to cancer.
