Worth Reading Again

Asparagus and Cancer - worth a read!

Dear Friends and Family,

I am asking you to read this article to the end.

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus that

she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4

tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is

on chemo pills for Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her

cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.

Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3 months.

THE ARTICLE:

Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend who

had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of an article,

entitled,

`Asparagus for cancer' printed in Cancer News Journal, December

1979.

I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: I am a

biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to health

for over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of

Richard R. Vensal, D. D. S. that asparagus might cure cancer.

Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have

Accumulated a number of favorable case histories.

Here are a few examples:

Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease

(cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated.

Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were

unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule

of strenuous exercise.

Case No. 2, a successful businessman 68 years old who suffered from

cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical

treatments, including radiation without improvement, he went on

asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder

tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he was put

on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread

that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his

case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy and

immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed

that all signs of the cancer had disappeared.. He is back at his

regular business routine.

Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin

cancer.

She finally developed different skin cancers which were

diagnosed by asking specialist as advanced.... Within 3 months after

starting on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin looked

fine and no more skin lesions. This woman reported that the

asparagus therapy also cure her kidney disease, which started in

1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was

receiving government disability payments for an inoperable,

terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney

trouble entirely to the asparagus.

I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of materia

medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of

Pennsylvania, stated that asparagus was used as a popular

remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739,

on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones.

We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has

interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore

appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather

a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical

skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.

For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using, and

therefore canned asparagus is just as good as fresh. I have

corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and

Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides

or preservatives.

Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree,

and store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons

twice daily, morning and evening.

Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4 weeks. It can

be

diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This suggested

dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts

can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.

As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures

can prevent'. Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using

asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals.

We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with

breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers

cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys

taken as part of our regular checkups..

The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in

the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements

in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these

improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink...

As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of

cancer, and all of the proposed cures As a result, I am convinced

that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer.

Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones,which

are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that

reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that

I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts

for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic.

In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is

a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and

it may do you much good.

It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that

asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which

is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and

antioxidants.

Please spread the news!

The most unselfish act one can ever do is to forward all the

kindness one has received!

Thanks Murray
