This should be interesting to scientific and medical professionals, such as oncologists, CAM doctors, cancer researchers, and medical care providers, as well as cancer patients. ... This book provides well-summarized information about the research and application of materia medica in this area. ... It also should be a valuable resource for cancer patients who are interested in the application of herbal medicine.” (Qi Chen, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2012)
