Very recently a group of Canadian scientists and oncologists discovered a specific herb that is able to kill cancer cells in a very healthy way and without any bad side effects.
The university of Windsor has also been experimenting on this herb and has proven that dandelion really does help against cancer and one very big project was started in order to check and prove the effects of dandelion tea against cancer.
The benefits of this root were firstly discovered by Pamela Ovadje and according to her:
“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.
The dandelion root extract was used and tested in many humans and with many cancer types. This root has also some good effect with leukemia cells, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer and others. The effects of dandelion root are very strong indeed and all that without harming the healthy cells.
How Does It Work?
The extract of dandelion root induces a state of apoptosis in the cancer cells which basically means that it makes the cancer cells commit suicide without any damage to the healthy cells whatsoever.
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.
