Are you ladies with mets/bone mets taking glutathione?  What exactly does this do?  I have heard more people talking about this lately!

I don't know about bone mets specifically, but glutathione appears to have some activity against breast cancer.  A quick Google search yielded this:

I found the same article while googling and did not read through it thinking native speaking sister would simplify it here for us :) some other articles suggests it's useful, but should be consumed under supervision, overdose might do more harm than good??

My oncologist would give 1 bag of iv glutathione directly after each IPT treatment.  I believe it has many attributes but I was told it was to mop up the damage of free radicals.  Since then, I take the supplement every day.
