Mistletoe - Iscador

Hi Vince,
In Sweden many cancer patients try Icador (mistletoe) for different types of cancer. As far as I understand nobody has been able to show any positive result in studies . When I look at internet I read that Iscador is immunemodulating like for example echinacea and that type of drugs are not recommended for patients with diseases like MDS since they can increase the risk of leukemia.

Did you read what Peter wrote in this thread some weeks ago about Astragalus?
Kind regards
