Top 24 Delicious Foods that Dissolve Cancer Stem Cells!

Jane-Icon-2Do you enjoy green tea, apples, and blackberries? Or would you rather buy online a bottle of softgels with Epigallocatechin-3 EGCG from Walmart? Ha Ha!

Take ginger root for example. Wouldn’t it be far more delicious to just chomp on real ginger? But now you can go online to Amazon or RiteAid to buy capsules of pure dried ginger powder from China. It’s laughable!

The list goes on. As Big Pharma races to patent expensive new anti-cancer drugs, a recent study just made our healthy choices easier! Ha ha! Right here are your top 24 natural foods that target cancer stem cells. The article appeared in the Journal of Anti-cancer Research titled “Natural Products That Target Cancer Stem Cells”. It’s well known that these nutrients kill cancer stem cells at their source in the bone marrow. Oncologists won’t tell you this. And now a new twist – as Big Pharma patents high-priced new compounds for “cancer chemotherapies” there’s a whole new world of Chinese extracts from natural foods with or without a patent. How effective are they? Do they have any potency or life force at all? It’s hard to know. Where’s my crystal ball??

Pharmaceutical giant Merck labels the active ingredient 6-Gingerol Zingiber officinal “An anti-tumor, apoptosis (cell death) inducing compound that blocks EGF-induced cell transformation by inhibiting the activation of Activator Protein-1 in cancer stem cells”.  What if we just chop on the real plants? As fresh as possible!

I’m sharing with you the most intelligent approach. Eat these foods frequently!
