Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Hempseed oil is natural antioxidant with essential fatty acids, there are some studies regarding its role on EGF positive cancer specially in lung cancers, in rectal cancer no such study is there. Anyway this has got no adverse effects . Your father can take this drug after consultation with his oncologist.
