I know someone who is undergoing chemotherapy. Someone suggested taking milk thistle together. Is this safe?

Milk thistle protects and generates liver cells. It is a safe herb, can be taken long term without causing toxicity, and is recommended in chemotherapy to protect the liver from drug damage.
