At University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada were made researches (2009 year) that showed something really amazing. A group of scientists started looking at an abundant weed as a new powerful cure for many types of cancer and the results are promising.
Common Herb Extract Against Cancer – Dandelion Root Extract!
All researches started when one of the doctors noticed something interesting and wondering happens with some of the cancer patients.
Pamela Ovadje, who was in that time a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Windsor, has done all extensive investigation for the anti-cancer properties of dandelions and other natural extracts.
Here are her words:
“We had information from an oncologist, a collaborator here in Windsor, who had patients that showed improvement after taking dandelion-root tea. And so, with a phone call, we decided to start studying what was in this tea that made patients respond to it, so we started digging up dandelions.“
We must mentioned that she was a little skeptic at first, but not because about fact that it was a natural source.
“I figured dandelions are everywhere, and if there was something to it, people would have found this out already.”
But we all should be very happy that these researches started looking into dandelion root extract and its magnificent effects in treating cancer because the achieves seem too good to be real.
“Since the commencement of this project, we have been able to successfully assess the effect of a simple water extract of dandelion root in various human cancer cell types in the lab and we have observed its effectiveness against human T-cell leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, and pancreatic and colon cancers, with no toxicity to non-cancer cells. Furthermore, these efficacy studies have been confirmed in animal models (mice) that have been transplanted with human colon cancer cells.” (Source)
In February 2015, the extract was approved for human trials. Currently, dandelion root extract is in Phase 1 trials for end-stage blood related cancers including lymphoma and leukemia. (Source)
Dr. Siyaram Pandey, professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Windsor and principal research investigator for the project, believes dandelion root extract has “good potential” to kill cancer cells in the human body.
The Work of This Common Herb Extract Against Cancer:
Dandelion root extract causes cancer cells to go through apoptosis. Apoptosis is a natural cell process where a cell will activate an intracellular death program because it is no longer needed. Basically, the extract causes cancer cells to kill themselves while leaving healthy cells alone. (Source, Source)
Here it is the image how 2 cells perform apoptosis or cell suicide:
This is really magnificent and world changing discovery if we mentioned the fact that chemotherapy drugs kill 1 healthy cell for every 5 to 10 cancer cells.
Try to repeat this sentence and think about that…
Surely the concentration of the extract is much higher than the one that is currently available on the market. And one thing is very important to know – all this started when one of the oncologist noticed that dandelion root helped cancer patients.
Trials are still underway, but using this common herb extract against cancer maybe will become No. 1 treatment of this terrific disease.
