    [FONT=&quot]Subject: Asparagus


    Interesting Article:
    "My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3 months."

    THE ARTICLE:
    Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of an article, entitled, 'Asparagus for cancer' printed in Cancer News Journal.

    I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: 'I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to health for over 50 years..Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R.. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer.

    Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories.

    Here are a few examples:

    Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.

    Case No. 2, A successful businessman 68 years old who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

    Case No. 3, A man who had lung cancer. On March 5th, he was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He is back at his regular business routine.

    Case No. 4, A woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She finally developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by asking specialist as advanced.... Within 3 months after starting on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.

    I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, stated that asparagus was used as a popular
    remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones.

    We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.

    For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just as good as fresh. I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.

    Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening.

    Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.

    As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that 'what cures can prevent'. Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals.

    We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups.

    The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink...

    As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic.

    In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good.

    It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.[/FONT]

    I dunno about this one. I know Asparagus is high in folate. American Cancer Society claims that there are no clinical tests that support this over placebos(1). Here is a study that suggests it has no overall effect http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18984888?dopt=Citation.

    In fact, increased folate tends to inhibit effects of chemotherapy (2). That's why oncologists and dietitians recommend patients on chemo stay away from daily supplements because many of the vitamins negate chemotherapy.

    Some forms of chemo form free radicals which is what destroys cells. Antioxidants found in supplements and herbal therapy(including asparagus) bind to free radicals and make them inert (3).

    It's always a good idea to eat your veggies but the stories in this article sound too good to be true.

    Your quotes an article. I'm funny in the sense that I never believe anything until I research the crap out of stuff. This is what happens when I have Friday off and I get bored on the internet :D

    Well not really sure how true or how false it is.
    But when push comes to shove, people will do alot for a cure. This is not bad, science is ever changing in this area. Some treatments work some do not.
    I have no ideas on other types of cancer, but breast cancer, well there are many types, and different stages.
    My wife for example was "triple negative, stage three" her lastest chemo treatment was feeding the cancer, thus moving it to a early stage four. Thus surgery was set in place ASAP.
    I am not giving a sob story, what I am trying to say is that at times a simple solution works best. Doctors can not explain it, science can not explain it. What may work for one person, may not work for the other.
    All's I will say that a cure needs to be found. Our children and their children should not have to go through the pain and suffering that alot of people with cancer go through.
