This work is being done to compile and present existing information. When studies and articles made in the last 10 years on the subject were examined, 25 of the plants on which most cancer researchers were carried out were determined. Among these plants, photographs of plants which are used extensively among the public are given and their therapeutic effects are compared with each other.
