Cancer Cell Growth Stopped and Reversed by Green Tea

(Natural Society) Scientists have found that the active ingredient in green tea can lead to a regression in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)—a type of cancer that causes the bone marrow to make too many lymphocytes (white blood cells). Although the research showing how green tea can fight cancer cell growth was published a few years ago, it seems to have been swept under the rug.

Green Tea Fights Cancer Cell Growth

According to The Telegraph, Dr. Tait Shanafelt from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota found that test subjects tolerated high doses of the green tea extract very well, while also stopping cancer cell growth and leading to a regression in their cancer. To be precise, the treatment reduced the number of lymphocytes in one-third of the test subjects.

Another symptom of this type of cancer is swollen lymph nodes, where white blood cells collect. Most subjects in the study saw their enlarged nodes reduced by 50% or more.

Each patient received between 400 and 2,000 milligrams twice daily. This would roughly be the equivalent of drinking four to 20 cups of tea, twice daily—not manageable for most people. However, green tea extract is relatively inexpensive and many people opt to take it in supplement form.

According to The Telegraph:

Many cases of CLL progress slowly, and often treatment involves an early stage of “watchful waiting” before patients are given strong treatments. Researchers hope that EGCG could stabilize the disease for many patients in the early stage or improve the success rates of other therapies like chemotherapy.

    Green tea is drunk by the litre daily in Japan., where there is a cancer epidemic.

    Green/ (all) tea is the highes of any consummable in fluoride. Fluoride attracts radio-active particles to be stored in the spleen.

    From there these particles, polonium etc., do their dirty work of starting and fuelling all malignancies. Clark HR PhD ND 2007.

    Fluoride mineralises the brains pineal gland, ‘dumbing down’ the individual. Thats the main reason fluoride is added to drinking water. (Not a conspiracy theory, read

    Green tea contains caffeic acid and salacylic acid, each of which of this allergens inflames 8 specific body parts. An inflamed part allows easy acces for the cancer nucleus and camcer complex, in the presence of nickel, to start and fuel a malignancy at that site. Clark HR. PhD ND.

    It tastes like medicine, but it isnt medicine!!

    Nuff said. No green tea nor black teas for me thanks.
