Bloodroot is a key ingredient, along with zinc chloride, in almost all topical salves used in the treatment of skin cancer. For more than a hundred years, bloodroot has been successfully used to treat skin cancers. However, regardless of what some vendors claim, bloodroot should not be taken internally, not even in small doses. "Researchers have isolated the alkaloidal principle, sanguinarine, as the anticancer constituent. This alkaloid is also found in the far more abundant greater celandine, Chelidonium majus, an herb common along roadsides in Europe and elsewhere." See also Cansema
