In fact, cannabis may have great value in sparing the lives of breast cancer victims. There's a compound called cannabidiol in cannabis (a.k.a. marijuana). The compound has a low toxicity profile.

The researchers concluded that the compound is the first non-toxic chemical that can significantly decrease the invasive gene expression.
