    My Dad has cancer in his lymph nodes. Previously in colon. So a friend told me to give him melatonin to help combat the side effects of chemotherapy and help fight the cancer. Anyone experience melatonin at all and how would I but it? online?

    Here's a link if you haven't heard of it.

    Mayo, John Hopkins, and American Cancer Society, might be better places to seek answers. They're considered the best of the best with these sorts of diseases.

    Science changes nearly daily, as new studies are done, researchers stumble on stuff.

    E.g. For hypertension doing 3 to 6 grams of flaxseed oil will definitely lower bp and cardiac risk. It's the only OTC remedy that AHA recommends for blood pressure management. They just stumbled on this in the past year or two. Science changes all the time.

    Melatonin is said to be a cancer fighting hormone, but I agree. Don't get medical advice from Real Jock.
