Brain - Complementary cancer therapies 'do more harm than good'
Key Highlights

"Doctors need to be more proactive about asking their patients what else they are taking when they are being treated for cancer," Prof Cardoso, head breast surgeon at the Champalimaud Cancer Centre in Lisbon, Portugal, told the BBC

She said it was particularly important that patients always checked with their doctors first

Cancer Research UK says some complementary therapies might stop conventional treatments working as well as they should

Cardoso said therapies like yoga, mindfulness, reiki and acupuncture could have a positive impact on patients' quality of life
