Pomegranate Extract for Prostate Cancer Patients

Tumor-specific nutraceuticals for prostate cancer patients is pomegranate extract. Although most pomegranate research has focused on potential benefits for cardiovascular health, the possibility that pomegranate extracts could influence the induction and growth of cancer is now receiving attention. Indeed, two recent studies have demonstrated that oral administration of pomegranate fruit extract can slow the growth of transplanted human prostate cancers. These favorable findings are now complemented by a recent clinical study in which patients with rising PSA values after initial treatment were asked to drink 8 ounces of pomegranate juice daily. Subsequently, a marked slowing of tumor growth was observed.

Pomegranate extract may ultimately prove to have broader utility in cancer management. For example, there are recent reports that oral administration of pomegranate fruit extract slows the growth of a transplanted human lung cancer, as well as of lung cancers induced in mice by carcinogen pre-treatment.

    Buzzing off cancer

    To the body and
    By JonThm9@aol.com
    Cancer shares genome with viruses: it is far from random, it is coals by the collection of common pathogen leaders used by all infections! It grows an undifferentiated mass of inappropriate cell types. It does not use the multi cellular stem cells-as they would not grow inappropriate tissue!
    It grows using the single cell type of division employed by all viruses! Bacteria are copied by the B cells, who mistake them for empathic bacteria! Helpful to the body. After three days the bacteria starts causing necrosis, and so all copying stops-by then you may have a fatal colony of bacterial cells in the body.
    Giving a drip of interleukin two and four makes the active antibody to all novel structures in the body. This will produce the specific antibody to any infection-even HIV, cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
    Drug companies can’t patient human antibodies, so they have ignored this work which has been in the immunology textbooks for 50 years. There are six common antibodies to all 200 sorts of cancer out there. Drug companies control the biochemical companies, but we can do better than pills!
    Since the 1950s is having realized that low power ultrasound images cancer tumours. The pressurised tumour converts the ultrasound into heat. It gives off nuclear radiation as it does so, so exposing photographic film.
    We are actually seeing biological molecular nuclear fusion: where ultrasound turns the water in the cell contents into helium and oxygen gases, plus loads of heat! As I my PH D in 2001, investigating ultrasound and nuclear fusion. The PH D got stopped, was a found out how easy it was for metallurgical ultrasound to set of nuclear fusion in a flask of water. Liberating 1000 times more energy than its talk in!
    Global warming was the big cash cow of academia: nuclear fusion were cured it, if world’s climate had not started cooling naturally in 1998. Global photosynthesis has produced a static trace of carbon dioxide in the air says levels fell at the end of the little ice age. Climate change? Just the latest fiction from nuclear power! No science behind it. Just money.
    I suggested in 2001 that we used high power ultrasound. Then I got on with my PH D! 2002 the Moffitt cancer centre in Florida tried focused high intensity ultrasound. They found it was a one appointment cure to prostate cancer.
    My friend’s father died of prostate cancer 2010! And he spent three months a year in Florida! 2010 I raid about the HIUS work in a charity cancer magazine. High intensity ultrasound causes specifically cancer cells to explosively fragment.
    All 200 types of cancer out there! Cancer cells are all pressurised and single cell in nature. Body cells are only affected by ultrasound above 180 Watts/cm2.
    So we are apply 150 W 40 kHz ultrasound through a 6 inch guide tube held above the cancerous organ. This works for small and large cancers. As the immune system no produces an immune action against the cancer cell!
    Bystander cells are damaged by the fragmenting cancer cells. They lie within the dendrite mesh. So the dendrites produce and action the antibody to a local genome in the blood! Which years there cancer genome from the exploding cells locally.
    So this ensures all the primarily and any secondary us is cleared from the body. The Moffitt worked on prostate cancer. The idea will also work for lung, colon, breast and gastric cancers. Basically any cancer out there!
    My birthday 2012 and cancer is cured!
