Yes: Grape seeds contain gallic acid, catechins, & epicatechins (may help reduce impact of cancer). Canola oil is low in saturated fat & contains omega-6 & omega-3 fatty acids (associated with reduced all-cause & cardiovascular mortality). Do not rely solely upon phytochemicals or other "natural remedies”. They must be part of an integrated treatment plan. Consult your physician about actual treatment.
