Pacific yew is the source of Taxol, which has low effectiveness against colorectal cancer. The tree is also endangered so I don't know how this would be sourced. It's a chemotherapy drug so if any supplement you took were going to be effective, it would have similar side effects to other chemos.

Yes, I researched a little about it last night for lymph drainage.
Not sure if its a fit for me, more researching to do for sure.
