    "In some cases 7,8-Benzoflavone reduces cancer, but in others (such as when it is applied topically with benzo(a)pyrene) it increases cancer.2"


    So don't consume benzopyrene.

    That is the only place that eroneously identifies 7,8-benzoflavone as a cancer causing substance. Ive tried contacting the writer of that blog without success, to point out the misrepresentation of 7,8-benzoflavone.

    Ive also already addressed it here –


    If you follow the same line of thought that the author of that blog does, then resveratrol, quercetin, or any other naturally occurring polyphenol/flavone would be a carcinogen too. (which is obscene)

    Basically, 7,8-Benzoflavone not a carcinogen.

    Yes, I appreciate that also Eric. I know you wouldnt use anything overtly harmful. The problem is there were 9 refs to studies. There is always contradictory studies like this with any popular supplement. Anything can be harmful with excessive amounts. JMO

    yes, thank you for clearing that up. Sustain Alpha is great, and I really looking forward to the oral since I can't take the transdermal version because of skin rashes.
