The established ways of treating cancer, such as chemotherapy and radiation, are often toxic and usually very expensive. Worse, they don’t always work. What other therapies already available on drugstore shelves show promise for treating cancer? How can we utilize the body’s own defense, the immune system, to fight cancer? This is the third in our three-part series on unconventional approaches to cancer.
