Grape seed extract is amazing in that it attacks the cancer cells but leaves the healthy cells untouched. This is a departure from conventional cancer treatments that destroy all of the cells in an attempt to stop the spread of cancer.

Makes sense! It just makes no sense to poison a body to heal it. DUH!

Sounds promising, but nowhere in this article, other than the title, does it say (or show proof) that grape seed extract outperforms chemo. In fact, this article (and the links they show us) give us very little evidence of any kind. It seems that grape seed extract works better on stage 4 colorectal cancer than it does on stage 2 colorectal cancer, but they tell us nothing about how it compares to using chemo. They tell us nothing about survival rates for either treatment. They tell us nothing about the grape seed extract (other than telling us there are over 8,000 grape varieties). Does any grape work? How much extract did they use? What exactly was extracted? So many questions, but no answers here.

Roger Skinner is right. There is more info at the link below, though it's not the full experimental protocol. These are preclinical trials.

"The Agarwal Lab continues its preclinical work studying the effectiveness and action of dietary compounds against cancer and encourages further exploration of their findings in clinical settings."
