Groundbreaking research published in International Journal of Oncology
SAN FRANCISCO, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — A study published in the June issue of the International Journal of Oncology found that Poria Triterpine Extract (PTE), a mixture of triterpines from Poria cocos, a medicinal mushroom used in traditional Asian medicine, suppress the proliferation of human pancreatic cancer cell lines.

Substances found in green tea and high fiber foods have been found highly effective in the treatment and prevention of pancreatic cancer, an extremely virulent form of disease with few effective treatments. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., with a 5-year survival rate of less than 5%. Any indication of an effective preventive and treatment is very good news.
A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer generally comes only in its late stages since there are few noticeable symptoms during the early period of the disease. Patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive an average of only 10 months following diagnosis. One of every 36 men will contract the disease in his lifetimes. For women, the incidence is one in every 195.
Green tea displays potent action against pancreatic cancer (more…)
The health benefits of green tea are (almost) endless. Cultivated for hundreds of years, green tea is loaded with antioxidants; saccharides (sugar); chlorophyll and some vitamins like, A, B1, B2, B3, C and E. Naturally, millions of people drink green tea for the health of it – but what does it really do for us?
1. A great way to prevent cancer
Research shows that green tea helps inhibit the growth of cancer cells and prevent cancers such as, pancreatic, prostate, breast, esophagieal, colorectal, stomach and lung cancer. A current analysis of 22 studies proved that drinking (2) cups of green tea per day can reduce the risk of lung cancer by 18 percent. (more…)

Men who drink one 300ml can of soda per day are much more likely to require treatment for a serious form of cancer than those who never consumed the drink.
A 15-year study found those who drank 300ml of a fizzy drink a day — slightly less than a standard can — were 40 percent more likely to develop prostate cancer than men who avoid the drinks.
Worryingly, the risk applied not to early-stage disease that was spotted via blood tests but to cancers that had progressed enough to cause symptoms. (more…)
While the crackpots and crooks in conventional medicine tell as that antioxidants, especially vitamins C and E, selenium and beta-carotenes, are dangerous and “cause” cancer, here’s a refreshing study that shows without question they are not, do not, and may well reduce the incidence of deadly pancreatic cancer by TWO THIRDS.

Pancreatic cancer is a particularly deadly form of the disease that takes the lives of nearly 40,000 people in the US each year. Mortality rates for pancreatic cancer are high (five year survival rate is less than three percent) as the disease is typically not suspected or diagnosed until it has progressed to an advanced stage and metastasized to other major organs. Similar to other cancers, pancreatic cancer develops as a result of dietary digressions after the large exocrine gland fails to meet metabolic demands from a diet high in processed, hormone-infused animal protein, hydrogenated fats and sugar.
