Asparagus & Cancer


One of the more interesting sections of the Qi (Gong) Revolution seminar that I attended was the sessions on food. One of the most provocative assertions in that session was regarding the important health benefits of asparagus for cancer patients.

So I opened up my trusty browser and started to read about asparagus and cancer.  I learned that this is a hot topic. A nice debate about asparagus can be found on the ABTA’s Inspire website @ https://www.inspire.com/groups/lung-cancer-survivors/discussion/could-be-good-asparagus-glutathione-anticarcinogen-antioxidant/ You do, however, have to register to read the discussion string.

As best I can sort out, a core issue stems from the fact that asparagus is a good source of glutathione, which some believe is a really power antioxidant as well as a substance that acts as an immune system booster, and a detoxifier. And that’s just for starters. There are also claims that glutathione can help your body repair damage caused by stress, pollution, radiation, infection, drugs, poor diet, aging, injury, trauma, and burns.

Phew! That’s a lotta work for a thin stalk of green.

Ok, so what is glutathione? "Glutathione is a very interesting, very small molecule that's [produced by the body and] found in every cell," says Gustavo Bounous, MD, director of research and development at Immunotec and a retired professor of surgery at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. "It's the (body's) most important antioxidant because it's within the cell."

And here’s a somewhat old, but reasoned discussion of all this from MedicineNet.com: http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=50746

In terms of relevance for brain tumor folks, I’m constantly reminded of Barbara Strauch and her well-researched book entitled The Secret Life of the GROWN-UP Brain in which she points out that “For years, scientists believed diet had little impact on our brains because they thought most nutrients didn’t cross the blood-brain barrier.”

After reading all this I’ve decided not to take any supplements. I will, though, look to eat asparagus more regularly.

Thanks for this information. Your blog is inspiring and hopeful. My uncle is having a brain tumor removed soon at an Oklahoma neurosurgery facility. Once he is healed, I am going to load him up on asparagus. It's worth trying.

There are certainly loads of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a great level to deliver up. I provide the thoughts above as normal inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you convey up where the most important thing can be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, but I'm certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both girls and boys feel the impact of only a moment’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives. casino play

Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? I’ve seen the great importance of natural supplements and the wonderful work Dr Edidia has done in my husband life.
I was looking for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD treatments for my husband who was 72yrs old, my husband has COPD and cancer, his condition was very critical which i was very afraid that will not survive it.
His white blood count was very low right now and his doctors are planning on starting some chemo or other treatment soon.. I don't believe he will last long if he does this.. His COPD is getting worse even though he hasn't smoked in 30 years. so i decided to come online to see if there will be better alternative, during my research i saw a lady post about doctor Dr Edidia who has power over deadly disease, so i decided to contact him because i really do not care about what my husband was talking in all i want for him is for him to get well for me because he was all i have, my husband took the remedies that he send to us through UPS as he told us and few weeks later my husband stop to notice that symptoms of his disease are begging to leave him so he went back to his Dr and he was told he no longer has those diseases.
My husband is totally free of COPD and cancer if not for doctor Edidia who help us rid this problem there is a possibility that my husband wouldn't be alive today.
