Important Advice:

Children and adolescents receiving anticancer therapy should neihter take any vitamins, homeopathic and herbal medication, nor should they be additionally treated according to alternative medicine concepts or go on a specific diet during cancer treatment, unless explicitly discussed and approved by the cancer doctor, since these actions may negatively interfere with the ongoing cancer treatment.
