Dandelions: The Next Cancer Killer?
Dandelion Root Extract: The Cancer Study
At the University of Windsor, Dr. Siyram Pandley of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry received a $275,000 grant to conduct a study on the the effectiveness of dandelion root extract as a possible remedy for treatment-resistant melanoma. Dr. Pandley’s research was based on the idea that natural sources could offer a promise for curing diseases like cancer, and he even gave a TEDx talk on the subject.
Dr. Pandley and his team used dandelion root extract to make a tea which they had their study participants drink. According to Dr. Pandley, the results were incredible. He claims that the dandelion root tea was able to kill off the cancer cells in only two days. Amazingly, healthy cells seemed to be left unaffected.
A statement issued by the university described the effectiveness of dandelion root extract against other forms of cancerous cells as well: “Since the commencement of this project, we have been able to successfully assess the effect of a simple water extract of dandelion root in various human cancer cell types, in the lab and we have observed its effectiveness against human T cell leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, pancreatic and colon cancers, with no toxicity to non-cancer cells. Furthermore, these efficacy studies have been confirmed in animal models (mice) that have been transplanted with human colon cancer cells.”
This is not quackery. This has the potential to be a real game changer in the battle to eliminate treatment-resistant instances of cancer.
Other Benefits of Dandelion Tea
Dandelion tea is rich in vitamins, containing 55 percent of the daily recommended dose of vitamin A, and 110 percent of vitamin K. It has also been shown to help lower blood cholesterol levels and help alleviate allergy symptoms, as well as assist in bile secretion and improve liver health.
This is one new remedy to keep an eye on. More clinical trials are underway, and dandelion root extract truly seems to have the potential to usher in a whole new chapter of effective cancer treatment without horrible side effects.
