Not sure if it cures cancer but older folks roll up the leave and swallow it whole. Touted to cure many ills including sorethroat due to heatiness.

Very bitter tasting. Very common and can be found in pots along HDB corridors or shops. Dark deep green leaves.

Just found out that they are not the same, as 白花蛇舌草 is Hedyotis Diffusa. :sad:

I heard of one supplier somewhere in tiong bahru. (added link HERE)
Not sure if it's effective but when one has cancer, he'll probably try anything, especially when it is not very expensive.
I'm growing some in my balcony :wink: but not enough for regular consumption.
