Patient discussion about COD

Q. Have you heard of CoD(tm) Tea and Nutritional System to treat cancer? Does it apply to brain cancer too? There have already been 6 brain tumors. A friend told me about this tea that's supposed to help, in addition to chemo, against malignant tumors. Have any of you heard of it? If it works, why is there so little research about it?

A. I'm OK - it's my mom. We live from MRI to MRI (a month to the next one) LOL.

Thanks for the encouragement!
