Herbs That Fight Prostate Cancer
15 June 2000

Health websites are buzzing with news about a combination of herbs that reduce prostate cancer levels in more than half of the men who take it. Reports have also appeared in The Wall Street Journal and other publications.

Called PC-SPES (PC for prostate cancer and SPES from the Latin word for hope), this patented formula combines saw palmetto and licorice with six herbs used in Chinese medicine: reishi, Baikal skullcap, rabdosia, Dyers woad, mum, and Panax ginseng.

PC-SPES has been found to contain prescription drugs, and is therefore no longer on the market.end-of-story
