Olive Oil Compound Kills Cancer Cells in 30 Minutes

Olive Oil Compound Kills Cancer Cells in 30 Minutes

Extra-virgin olive oil may rapidly kill off cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact. 

Extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) already has a reputation as a superfood.  It contains an abundance of antioxidants that are proven to confer health benefits.

Studies show that one phenolic compound in EVOO – oleocanthal (OC) – provides many of the health benefits we see from diets rich in EVOO like the Mediterranean diet.

Recently researchers put oleocanthal from EVOO to the test against cancer. They found that OC can induce rapid death in cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.

The researchers from Hunter College, Rutgers University, and the Monell Chemical Senses Center investigated the effect of oleocanthal on prostate, breast, and pancreatic cancer cells.  They found that OC induced the loss of cell adhesion within as little as 30 minutes.  Within 24 hours 100% of the cancer cells were non-viable.

Oleocanthal works on lysosomes within the cancer cells.  Lysosomes are small organelles which are the cell’s first line of defense against viruses and bacteria.  They are also the place where cells store waste.  Cancer cells have fragile lysosomal membranes compared to healthy cells. The OC breaks open the membrane around the lysosomes in cancer cells but leaves noncancerous cells intact.

The Whole Truth About the Budwig Diet

 

ccfo_webToo many in the natural health field, especially writers, scoff at the Budwig Diet’s core protocol as unreal and unsuited for reversing cancer. There are other dietary requirements that are part of her protocol. Lots of sunshine and stress management are also part of Johanna Budwig’s approach to healing the whole person.

That core protocol is flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. Originally it was flaxseed oil and quark, a crumbly textured white cheese resembling ricotta that is common among German speaking nations, Scandinavian countries, and much of the Eastern European region. But quark is not available in America. So here it’s cottage cheese instead of quark.

Even Dr. Andrew Weil was quoted as criticizing the Budwig Diet with “curing cancer with cottage cheese is wishful thinking”. Yet over a 50 year period, Johanna Budwig had a 90% plus cancer cure rate in Germany among 4500 patients afflicted with all types of cancers. Some cancer victims that she cured with her protocol were considered terminal. (more…)

7 Big Mistakes Made With Natural Methods for Curing Cancer

Mainstream medicine has ways of disguising the fact that often their treatments lead to the demise of cancer patients, and their rate of reversing cancer is dismal even as they play linguistic and statistical games with their results.
“As a chemist trained to interpret data, it is incomprehensible to me that physicians can ignore the clear evidence that chemotherapy does much, much more harm than good.”Alan Nixon, Ph.D., Past President of The American Chemical Society

On the other hand, those who seek alternative methods of dealing with cancer have a much greater chance of surviving cancer without any adverse reactions and side effects. As the saying goes, with herbal medicine the disease can kill you; but with allopathic medicine the cure can kill you.

7 Mistakes Made With Natural Methods for Curing Cancer

Modified Citrus Pectin Fights Cancer

Pectin is a fiber found in citrus, apples and other fruit. The pectin found in citrus fruits—but only in a modified form—has been the subject of a significant amount of cancer research.

For pectin to be absorbed by the body, rather than passing through the colon as bulk, it must be artificially modified to a low molecular weight.

Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is the result of pH and temperature modification that breaks the pectin into shorter-chained carbohydrates that dissolve more readily in water and are better absorbed by the body.

Modified Citrus Pectin May Prevent the Spread of Cancer

As early as 1992, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the finding of a reduction in the spread of melanoma in mice given modified citrus pectin.1 The journal later published studies showing an ability to inhibit prostate cancer and breast cancer in rats and mice.2-3

A study involving 13 men with prostate cancer found that PSA doubling time (a measure of prostate cancer progression) increased in seven of ten men who consumed MCP for a year in comparison with pretreatment values,demonstrating a reduction in cancer progression.4

The theory behind the use of MCP for the prevention of metastasis involves the disruption of galectin-3, which encourages cancer cells to clump together and form new blood vessels.

Galectin-3 enables cells to recognize and interact with each other. The administration of pectin prevents the interaction of galectins, thereby reducing cancer cell adherence, aggregation, and migration.

Modified Citrus Pectin Has Detoxifying Qualities

Research shows modified citrus pectin also reduces the body’s heavy metal burden.

In a study of healthy individuals, 15 grams of modified citrus pectin were taken daily for five days followed by 20 grams on the sixth day of the study. Twenty-four hour urine samples were collected and were analyzed for heavy metals.5

Urinary arsenic excretion increased by 130%, cadmium excretion increased by 150%, and lead by 560%. In a subsequent study of children with lead poisoning, 15 grams of MCP per day for one month resulted in a 161% average decease in blood lead levels.6

The Bottom Line

Metal toxicity and cancer may both benefit from modified citrus pectin and future research will undoubtedly uncover more uses for this remarkable fiber. In the meantime, feel free to work it into your own supplement regimen, if desired!

Five fruits that stop cancer

pomegranate 2(Health Secrets) Scientists have discovered five fruits that stop cancer. Each has a specific cancer fighting component that shrinks tumors, and keeps cancer cells from proliferating. Unlike the drugs of mainstream cancer treatment, these components are not specific to one form of cancer, but are able to treat many forms of cancer successfully.

Five fruits that stop cancer

Pineapple – Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key cancer fighting component in pineapple. Scientists at the University of Oxford in the U.K. have found bromelain shrinks tumors through its ability to dissolve fibrin, the protein based defense shield that protects cancerous tumors. Once that shield is stripped away, the immune system can easily eliminate them.

Bromelain has the ability to modulate key pathways that support malignancy. This anti-cancer activity consists of direct impact on cancer cells and their micro-environments, as well as strengthening the immune system, reducing inflammation, and altering the hemostatic system, making it more difficult for tumors to set up and maintain a blood supply.

How Natural Cures for Cancer Became a Crime: A Story of Resisting AMA & FDA Suppression

This story of one man’s constant conflicts with the medical establishment covered almost 50 years of the 20th Century, and have proven to be worthy of an epic movie script based on actual events that the AMA, FDA, and CDC probably won’t allow into production.

Most medical doctors and scientists with actual cancer cures tend to operate under the radar due to the vast oppressive cancer industry of modern allopathic medicine and its control of the media.

HarryHoxey1Harry Hoxsey was flamboyant. He put himself into the public eye and ear energetically and often, asserting the efficacy of his family’s herbal treatments garnered from early 19th Century Native Americans.

The medical establishment, cancer industries, and cooperating government agencies responded viciously.

 

null-gary-19His USA operations were closed down in 1960, but his legacy continues at the Bio-Medical Center in Tijuana, Mexico offering reasonably priced safe effective cancer cures at an 80% rate.

 

His clinic was one of the first alternative cancer clinics to flee into a less politically hostile medical environment. Others have since followed.

Remarkable Resveratrol

reservatol
Resveratrol is a “polyphenol” found in the skin of dark grapes that is produced naturally when the plant is under attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi.

What is a “polyphenol”? If you look at the attached photo, the two hexagons in the structure of the molecules are called “aromatic rings” and the OH groups are called “hydroxyl” groups. When aromatic rings and hydroxyl groups are together, the chemical is called a “phenol.” Since there is more than one of these phenols present, resveratrol is a “polyphenol.”

Polyphenols are often associated with compounds that are antioxidants. This is because they can react with free radicals to form a more stable molecule; one that is less toxic than the original radical. Since resveratrol’s prime function in nature is to protect the fruit against pathogens, it only makes sense that it would exhibit potent anti-fungal activity in the human body, which it does. It also destroys candida albicans.
