Recently, a group of Canadian scientists discovered that there’s an effective herb that can kill cancer naturally and without side-effects in just 2 days! Terrific news come from the University of Windsor, where scientists have been examining the effects of dandelion against cancer since 2009. The project started when one oncologist discovered a relation between dandelion root tea and lower risk of cancer.
Pamela Ovadje is a post-doctoral candidate at the University who found the benefits of the root. “One oncologist who worked with us, told us the unbelievable improvement in a patient’s daily drinking tea from dandelion root. We immediately began to investigate this tea to see how other patients respond to it, however we were pretty skeptical. I thought that dandelion grows all over, and if at all there is something great in it, people would have long ago found,” she remembers.
“Since we began this project, we were able to get out of dandelion root extract and use it to many types of human cancer in the lab. In the lab, we observed its effectiveness against leukemia cells, colon cancer and pancreatic cancer, and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. We’ve discovered that dandelion root has extremely strong effect on them without harming healthy cells. Furthermore, studies have validated the efficacy in mice transplanted human cancer cells,” Ovadje says.
Dandelion root extract has been approved for human trials since 2015 and is in the first phase of research for treatment of lymphoma and leukemia. Dr. Sciarra Pandi, a biochemist at the University and one of the leaders on the research, considers the extract one of the most effective natural remedies against the deadly disease.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The extract works by inducing apoptosis in the cancer cells. In simpler terms, it makes the cancer cells commit suicide without damaging the healthy cells in any way. Although the research is still in the beginning stages, it has shown a lot of potential and may be the base for a future treatment.
