Broccoli Kills Cancer Cells!
The orthodox thinking if you have some form of cancer is to use radical evasive treatments such as chemotherapy. Well, there are natural alternatives and one such treatment has been introduced by researchers at Baylor university who conducted this study.
This study focused on one specific compound known as Sulforaphane
. Cruciferous vegetables are loaded with sulforaphane, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are the main providers.
Specifically, the studies used a high concentration of sulforaphane contained in broccoli. They noted, although the high level of sulforaphane extract used is beyond the normal amounts digested it is still very beneficial to eat, juice, blend cruciferous vegetables as a preventative cancer measure. Some high concentrates of sulforaphane supplements are available.
The studies results are nothing short of astounding. Researchers focused on Leukemia a blood cancer that attacks healthy white blood cells. High concentrations of sulforaphane were introduced to cancerous cells. The cancerous cells died while leaving healthy cells untouched. Conversely, chemo is infamous for it's devastating after effects and its destructive path in the human body.
Another study conducted at University of Michigan tested sulforaphane on mice and cell cultures. They focused on cancerous stem cells which are a catalyst for spreading the disease.
Amazing results were discovered. Sulforaphane actually destroyed the amount of cancer stem cells by a whopping 80%. Similarly, the size of tumors were cut by 75%, and continued growth was stopped in its tracks.
Still more proof that sulforaphane kills cancer cells comes from Oregon State University where researchers found that sulforaphane helps inhibit an enzyme-HDAC-that fuels the growth of prostate cancer cells.
"It is well documented that sulforaphane can target cancer cells through multiple chemo-preventive mechanisms," said lead author Dr. Emily Ho.
It is important to note that vegetables should be eaten raw or steamed lightly since cooking obliterates sulforaphane potency. As with all food, try to buy organic whenever available.
In summary; The general consensus among researchers conducting the studies is that sulforaphane found in cruciferous vegetables has the ability to kill Leukemia cancer cells, inhibit tumor growth and works equally well among other cancers. In short, sulforaphane kills, prevents and repairs cancerous cells. So before you or a loved one submits to evasive surgery, toxic chemotherapy, or dangerous radiation to fight cancer, please consider an all natural approach that has been scientifically proven to destroy cancer without any harmful side affects.
