I add 1 teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon powder to oats cereal everyday.Heard coumarin in cinnamon affects liver. Is my intake of cinnamon safe quantity?

Neither, but...: There are a variety of false claims on the internet about how they can help cancer patients.

It's relative.: If you are a healthy 26 year old male without diabetes or any major chronic illness, the master cleanse is safe, but quite extreme.
