No, I hadn't, so I checked it out.
Apparently, that report was from 2012, and a bit embellished by the reporters.
This is from 2015:
" Dr. Caroline Hamm, a medical oncologist at the Windsor Cancer Centre in Windsor, Ont. who is leading the study [says] she’s seen improvements in some patients who drink dandelion root tea purchased at health food stores,
“Most of the responses that I have seen are very short. but there’s a signal there that I think is worthwhile of further investigation,” she said.
Hamm expects the trials to start within the next month."
So there is some evidence that drinking dandelion tea does have some effect on cancer, and that there are researchers studying it.
I would categorize the claim that it kills 98% of cancer cells in 48 hours as a big claim based on a sliver of truth.
That doesn't mean there are no benefits in drinking the tea. Only that they need to study it further to find out the whys, wheres, what fors.
