Since comfrey helps speed cell division, would it be contraindicated for someone with cancer? Or does it just affect healthy cells?

It doesn't differentiate what kinds of cells it makes happy. I wouldn't use it on a cancer case.

Thank you! I figured that would be the case. I get a little analytical sometimes but usually will end up needing that information when questions like that pop into my head. :)
