    Interesting study published in the online journal Cancer (sponsored by the American Cancer Society):

    ever since I did a liver detox back in 2003, which was really important for improving my overall digestive health. Equally important were the digestive enzymes and HCL which I started taking as well. I cannot recommend these highly enough.

    Milk thistle is huge in Europe for liver issues, and is highly recommended by many doctors in the U.S. too. My sister-in-law who first beat leukemia back in the early 1980's, and then hepatitis C in the late 1990's (from a blood transfusion from the leukemia) took milk thistle for her liver, among other things, as recommended by her doctor. She beat the hepatitis C as well, after doing the interferon protocol, which can be quite rough. I don't know if I could do what she did.

    Anyways, some people want scientific studies before giving milk thistle a try, so here's one.
