Unfortunately, cancer is one of the commonest diseases in the world. Even though medicine is very advanced, there still are not medicaments to destroy this sneaky disease.
Most of the times, this disease is treated with a surgery or chemotherapy. However, chemotherapy destroys healthy cells and badly affects the entire organism.
In addition we will present the four most effective healing plants in the fight against this insidious disease.
Even though cannabis is still illegal in most countries, it has been proved to help in the process of treating cancer. Cannabis kills cancer cells and does not destroy healthy ones. There are numerous scientific studies that have confirmed how important cannabis is when it comes to treating various types of cancer, including breast cancer.
This spice is capable of preventing flow effects in the body leading to cancer development. Turmeric also provides protection potential in development of prostate cancer, which occurs in every six men, researches have shown.
It is believed that this plant’s beneficial properties come from curcumin -- the yellow pigment of the spice.
Turmeric possesses strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer activity and therefore is considered to be very effective treatment when it comes to prevention of malignant diseases.
3. Green tea
Green tea’s ingredient, known as polyphenols E, inhibits the growth and migration of tumor cells, results of a survey have shown.
This research is done in too small-scale to say with certainty whether green tea prevents cancer or not. That, however, is a step forward in the research of anti-cancer’s mechanisms.
Within the study, 40 participants took 400, 600, 800 milligrams of polyphenols E or placebo twice a day during 6 months. Scientists have taken samples of blood and urine within two, four and six months after the start of the study.
It turned out that after the first two months the women who took extracts, had significantly reduced levels of hepatocytes, a factor that is important for the development of breast cancer, compared with participants who took placebo. After four and six months the differences were not statistically significant.
Grapes have many medicinal properties that protect and improve human health. This fruit is an excellent cure for cancer. Compounds found in grapes protect cells from ultraviolet radiation, emitted by the sun, which is a leading cause of skin cancer. Ultraviolet rays increase the level of reactive oxygen species -- harmful molecules that damage skin cells. This exact reaction prevents the flavonoid substance that is found in grapes.
