Ok, folks. Here are some excerpts to back up my belief that cancer and fungus can be intimately intertwined. If you have cancer, or just want to be preventitive, PLEASE adopt an anti-fungal lifestyle, and if you’re sick, take some natural anti-fungals. Check it out:

Carrots and garlic are the most potent anti-fungal foods on the planet. Check out this article from sciencedaily.com. You can google this information, too, and you will find a million other medical publications about the same thing:

  1. Scientists have given us another reason to eat carrots – a compound found in the popular root vegetable has been found to have an effect on the development of cancer. Falcarinol protects carrots from fungal diseases, such as liquorice rot that causes black spots on the roots during storage. The scientists investigated the compound after a previous published study suggested it could prevent the development of cancer. The team found that, after 18 weeks, rats who ate carrots (the popular orange variety) along with their ordinary feed and the group which consumed falcarinol with their feed – in a quantity equal to that contained in the carrots – were one third less likely to develop full-scale tumours than the rats in the control group.
  2. In a recent study published in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science paired the active ingredient of a garden remedy with advanced bio-technology to deliver a powerful punch against cancer. The cancer killing effectiveness lies in their technique of arming a cancer-targeting antibody with the destructive potential of the dietary molecule otherwise known as “allicin.” Allicin is the product of an interaction between an enzyme, alliinase, and the small chemical alliin, which occurs naturally in plants such as garlic and onion as a defense mechanism against soil fungi, bacteria and parasites. Within three days, almost all of the human lymphoma cancer cells were destroyed in those mice treated with the conjugate and alliin, while hardly any cancer cell destruction occurred in the control mice who received the conjugate alone. This excerpt is from www.medicalnewstoday.com: Swapan Ray, Ph.D.(MUSC Neurosciences/Neurology associate professor), Naren Banik, Ph.D. (MUSC Neurosciences/Neurology professor), and Arabinda Das, Ph.D. (MUSC Neurosciences/Neurology post-doctoral fellow) studied three pure organo-sulfur compounds (DAS, DADS, and DATS) from garlic and the interaction with human glioblastoma (Grade 4 of my tumor) cells. All three compounds demonstrated efficacy in eradicating brain cancer cells, but DATS proved to be the most effective. The study will be published in the September issue of the American Cancer Society’s journal, Cancer. Cancer cells have a high metabolism and require much energy for rapid growth. In this study, garlic compounds produced reactive oxygen species in brain cancer cells, essentially gorging them to death with activation of multiple death cascades.”This research highlights the great promise of plant-originated compounds as natural medicine for controlling the malignant growth of human brain tumor cells.
  3. You know all of the hype that you hear about how red wine can protect/fight against cancer? The ingredient in red wine that is being studied is called Resveratrol. Here is an excerpt from Clinical Cancer Research: Resveratrol is produced by grapes and other plants to protect the plant against fungus, and disease. Conclusions: Resveratrol caused significant glioma (brain cancer) cell cytotoxicity and apoptosis, exerted antitumor effects on the s.c. and intracerebral gliomas, and inhibited angiogenesis in s.c. gliomas. Thus, resveratrol might be considered a possible treatment strategy for gliomas.
  4. This is just a tiny bit of information about this topic. If you do your homework, you will learn that most chemotherapies were plant-derived, until the last 10-15 years. Many of these chemotherapeutic plants that were used, have been used in ancient medicine because of their anti-fungal properties. Pharmeceutical companies have just created synthetic chemicals that function in a similar, but extremely toxic, manner. You can’t make billions of dollars on a nursery full of Periwinkle plants. Periwinkles can’t be patented.

    Ok, I’ve rambled on long enough. I hope that gives people a little bit of insight, and some encouragement to realize that you really can take your health into your own hands. Conventional medicine is a gift from God and I’m not trying to bash it whatsoever (Big Pharma…different story)…I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for all of the doctors who have helped me along the way, the medications that kept me from having seizures on a daily basis, etc. I’m just saying that you need to be careful not to believe everything you are told, read and watch on a daily basis. Be an informed consumer. We need to know that we are responsible for our own bodies. A pill isn’t going to address the underlying cause of why we are sick. Sure, it will mask our symptoms, but as one of my favorite sayings goes “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten”….Change it up!
