Food to Starve Cancer through AntiangiogenesisPosted: January 23, 2015
Diet & Food is better than pharmaceutical drugs to stop cancer! Phytochemicals can stop, prevent, and cure cancer!
The advancement of cancer treatment is changing. A MD is now admitting that vegetables, herbs, or PHYTOCHEMICALS are better in neutralizing cancer than prescription drugs! This is a very significant admission by a medical doctor. Most MD are uneducated in phytochemical nutrient. Phytochemicals are a much safer way to treat cancer than to consume toxic chemicals of chemotherapy.
The discovery of antiangiogenesis properties of chemicals in food is redefining cancer treatment methods. Antiangiogenesis means preventing the growth of blood vessels to a tissue. Why is this significant? Every tumor has blood vessels attached to it that feed the cancerous tumors. This method is to starve cancer tissues by stopping the growth of new blood vessels to tumors and destroying blood vessels already attached to it.
Antiangiogenesis is the new method of stopping cancerous tumors and it is commonly found in plants or phytochemicals!
Directly quoted from Dr. William Li, “Our search for this has taken us to the market, the farm and to the spice cabinet, because what we’ve discovered is that Mother Nature has laced a large number of foods and beverages and herbs with naturally occurring inhibitors of angiogenesis.”
A complete transcript can be found on:
From Dr. Li’s research, Resveratrol found in red grapes and red wine inhibits abnormal angiogenesis by 60 percent. Ellagic Acid (an extract from strawberries) and Genistein (extract from soybeans) shows even stronger ability than Resveratrol to inhibit abnormal angiogenesis. The significant effect of phytochemicals on tumors can be visually seen on Youtube or on TEDx. Antiangiogenesis is very effective in stopping cancerous tumors from growing. Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) was used to deliver the chemicals to the area, as the slides indicates.
Not surprisingly, turmeric is the one of the highest in antiangiogenesis properties along with Chinese jasmine, Japanese sencha tea and Earl Grey tea.
Amazingly Dr. William Li have found that Vitamin E is better than any cancer drugs to stop cancer! Vitamin E has the highest antiangiogenesis property compared to all food and drugs. An excellent source for Vitamin E is wheat germ oil.
Here is a short list of natural antiangiogenesis:
Ginseng, Red Wine (Resveratrol,) Dark Chocolate, Maitake mushrooms, Licorice, Nutmeg, Green Tea, Tuna, Soy beans, Parsley, Garlic, Grapes, other berries, fruits, herbs, and vegetables.
Synergistic Effect of Herbs
Dr. William Li even emphasizes the synergistic effect of combining two tea (herbs) together to create a more potent effect. From Dr. Li’s finding Chinese jasmine and Japanese sencha tea have strong anti-angiogenesis properties but combining them together creates a stronger antiangiogenesis effect than to use them alone. Earl Grey is highest in antiangiogenesis properties versus Chinese jasmine or Japanese sencha tea but not higher than Chinese jasmine and Japanese sencha tea combined together. Of course this is not new to the Chinese. In TCM, this is strongly emphasized. All Chinese herbs are combined to create herbal formulas.
This discovery is so outstanding that insurance companies are promoting this philosophy of eating your vegetables to stay healthy and beat cancer. Insurance companies are realizing that healthier patients are more profitable!
The cure in cancer is in natural food not pharmaceutical drugs. As Hippocrates, father of medicine, 431 B.C. said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
