One line answer NO: KOMBUCHA , a fermented fungus tea used as health supplement in varieties of diseses from cancer to HIV etc has no scientific proof . Only one that benefits are the one that sells ,risk outweighs the unproven benefits If you have colon polyp go for scheduled endoscopic removal , get them analyzed & follow your MD s advise.
