People like Stan Thompson are what ruin good scientific research, and people believe him without having seen CT scans (before and after) and/or his doctors reports. He is allegedly drinking dandelion root extract which has not been processed like the one in the study, failing to say how many mg he is actually taking per day (no way to know if you don't have a lab). There is a very strict protocol to extract the material effectively, and he didn't do that.
He keeps on saying that his way was effective too, but how do we know without evidence? Why should we believe him?
The Phase I clinical trials are still recruiting and what they are trying to find is the recommended highest dose without toxicity. Even the scientists don't know yet if the DRE is effective, and if it is at what dose. We won't know if it really work until they finish the clinical trials. LINK here.
Mr Thompson has made a dandelion root tea, not an extract, and the tea is not effective.
Unfounded claims from snake oil salesmen on youtube are dangerous, as gullible people believe them without any proof and they put their lives at risk. False hope can kill.

Not so funny when you think about how hard RoundUP is pushed, for killing "weeds" in your yard is it? RoundUP kills dandelions, that may cure cancer. And what does an ingredient in RoundUP give you?
Stupid world we live in sometimes.

That will always be a problem, way back when the cure for "Dropsey" swelling of the ankles, the remedy was Foxglove tea, as Foxglove contains a glycoside which strengthens the heart, the heart beats better and flushes the fluid out via the kidneys, the active ingredient can vary in strength. Either side of the active agent their are, other glycosides that come with the package, so in the old days you would take a little and up the dose until the medicine worked. Then Big Pharma wanted in, but you can't get a patent on a flower, but they could synthesize one of the glycosides, and patent that. They found out the optimal dose and made a pill and lots of money. The same with many more originally natural plant based cures. The wise woman or the Shaman, knew most of the plant based cures for most of the general ailments that we suffer from. But it wasn't industrialized, and wouldn't not have cost much. Then it was realized that people will pay any amount to live, that's why big pharma control as much money as the defense contracts. Treating yourself for ailments is dicey because people haven't got a clue on what to use and how much, but judging by the amount of deaths caused by medical misadventures, it seems you stand as much chance by treating yourself as by taking the prescribed stuff.
