Asparagus for Cancer -
Three types of asparagus on a shop display, with white asparagus at the
back and green asparagus in the middle. The plant at the front is
Ornithogalum pyrenaicum, is commonly called wild asparagus,
Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had
cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of an article, entitled,
`Asparagus for cancer ' printed in Cancer News Journal, December 1979.
I will share it here, just as it was shared with me:
'I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to
health for over 50 years.
Here are a few examples:
Case No. 1,
A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the
lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of
starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any
signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.
Case No. 2,
A successful businessman 68 years old who suffered from cancer of the
bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including
radiation without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months,
examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that
his kidneys were normal.
Case No. 3,
A man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he was put on the
operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it
was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless.
On April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy and immediately
started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of
the cancer had disappeared. He is back at his regular business routine.
*Case No. 4,
A woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She
finally developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by asking
specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting on asparagus, her
skin specialist said that her skin looked fine and no more skin lesions.
This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney
disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney
stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an
inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this
kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.
We would have other case histories but the medical
establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I
am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us
to gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the
medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy. For
the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using, and therefore
canned asparagus is just as good as fresh.
* * PROCEDURE::
1) Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree,
and store in the refrigerator.
2) Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily,
morning and evening.
Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4
weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink.
This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly
larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.
As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that
`what cures can prevent'. Based on this theory, my wife and I have been
using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2
tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with
dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold.
For years we have made it a practice to have blood
surveys taken as part of our regular checkups.
The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who
specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial
improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute
these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink...
The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do
you much good.. It has been reported by the US National Cancer
Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing
glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent
anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
Please spread the news....
