Essiac is an herbal tea promoted as an alternative treatment for cancer and other illnesses. There is no evidence it is beneficial to health. In a number of studies Essiac either showed no action against cancer cells, or actually increased the rate of cancer growth. The Essiac variation, "Flor Essence" in particular has shown evidence of being harmful, with laboratory tests demonstrating that it increased the growth of breast cancer cells.   Wikipedia
