Default Oleander/Cancer

I was wondering if anyone here who's had any forms of cancer has ever tried or thought of trying Oleander to attack it? I've been reading quite a bit of literature that speaks of Oleander "soup" and claims are made that it helps with all forms of cancer, diabetes, and Hepatitus C.
I know Oleander is poisonous and deadly even in small portions if ingested and that you can even get poisoning just touching the plant as it can penetrate the skin, so people are recommended to wear gloves.

But what I've read goes back apparently thousands of years to folk cures, especially in Turkey and that regions that use Oleander have virtually no cancer issues.
The Oleander is boiled for four hours in a vat and then the plant material is pulled out and the liquid is strained through four colanders with paper towels as filters and then boiled again for another two hours, and then as it becomes ready, a bottle of 80 proof vodka is poured into it to act as a preservative at half/half.
From what I've read, it attacks cancer and viruses very well and the plant is rendered safe when it's extracted by water method as noted above.
Has anyone tried it or heard about it?

I have actually heard about this, apparently the oleander plant may have some benefit as a cancer treatment, but the fact that it is so deadly means that a person would have to be very careful in making the extract. If you got the proportions wrong, it could be fatal.

I just googled those two terms and found something by the American Cancer Society. Here's the link.

I would DEFINITELY suggest doing some additional research before attempting this. A fantastic service operated by your National Institutes of Health is medline plus http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/medlineplus.html and its jam packed with reputable consumer information. It's extremly easy to use.

Also, I would ask your GP about Oleander in case it's known to react to other things like medications or multivitamins.
