ONE OF THE PHYTONUTRIENTS THAT I RESEARCHED AND PERSONALLY TAKE IS GRAPE SEED EXTRACT. More than one study has supported its use as a possible inhibitor of cancer. In this case reported recently in the peer reviewed journal “Carcinogenesis” it was shown once again how a simple available phytonutrient could be both effective and benign.
In a mouse model it was shown that Grape Seed Extract (GSE) in a “rather dramatic effect” killed head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cancers while healthy cells were unaffected. The article discussed how cancer cells are not only fast growing but that they are “necessarily fast growing” possibly because the unique conditions in which they can grow at an accelerated rate EXIST. When those conditions change or cease to exist cancer cells DIE. It was indicated that there are many ways to create conditions that affect the environment that cancer cells live in and as well the internal environment. I have come across close to 400+ phytonutrients which through various ways affect cancer cells, GSE is just ONE more!
This report clarified in my own mind what I have been doing with these phytonutrients in my own well being and care. I have been creating an environment through EVERY TOOL AT MY DISPOSAL that my cancer cells will find it difficult to live in. Why, WHY! shoot one arrow into your target? Why rely ONLY on the chemical your doctor prescribes? Why rely ONLY on (of all things) something like laetrile? And NOT change your diet, your lifestyle or outlook?
The Grape Seed Extract was shown to inhibit the cancer cells by damaging their DNA “via increased reactive oxygen species” and by interfering with a few of “the pathways that allow repair…of [DNA] by decreased levels of ..repair molecules Brca1, Rad51 and DNA repair foci”.
The article summed it up so succinctly “cancer cells have a lot of defective pathways and they are very vulnerable if you target those pathways. The same is not true of healthy cells”
Cancer cells MUST have ‘defective pathways’ otherwise they wouldnt be cancer cells. Interfering with those vulnerabilities, Achille’s tendons, is something that anyone can do with simple small casual easy changes.
While I would not suggest buying SEEDED grapes and chewing up any seeds (one would get a higher amount of dietary fiber) present and swallowing, supplements are very readily available!
The weight of just one feather, the pressure of just one small change might inhibit cancer by itself alone.
Eat smart, eat wisely
