Question:
Why is shark cartilage used for treating cancer?



Replies:
In my opinion, because people believe in miracle cures on pretty scant evidence when they are desperate. I have never seen anything that would make me believe cancer of any kind can be cured with cartilage of any sort. The best treatment for cancer is prevention.
