"Spirulina and similar products derived from blue-green algae are commonly taken supplements in Malaysia. I have now seen 5 cancer patients who have developed liver function abnormalities after ingesting Spirulina, one with liver enzymes shooting up to about 1000.
Just yesterday I saw a patient with Hodgkin’s lymphoma undergoing chemotherapy and who was ingesting Spirulina at the same time. She is now deeply jaundiced with markedly raised liver enzymes.
A search in Quackwatch shows this article, Algae: False Claims and Hype which mentions that products containing blue-green algae may contain toxins harmful to the liver .
I am concerned about the quality of the blue-green algae products being sold in Malaysia and whether or not they are harvested from carefully “controlled ponds” and there needs to be some assurance they do not contain Cyanobacterial toxins. My concern stems from the observation of several cases of probable liver toxicity in patients, especially in more susceptible ones like cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy"
