The answer to halting the growth of an aggressive form of a breast cancer may be found in your kitchen pantry or local farmers market, according to new scientific research. Putting millions of dollars worth of funding into the breast cancer drug industry to shame, researchers recently unveiled amazing new research that shows an ingredient known as apigenin — found in celery and other produce — is a cheap way of stopping breast cancer in its tracks. The sad part? The researchers even admit in their write-up that it will be virtually impossible to receive funding for further research because the pharmaceutical companies cannot profit from it!

That’s right, the scientists actually come out and say that due to the convenient and inexpensive nature of this cancer-fighting substance, big pharma cannot make any money off of it. As a result, the research will most likely be halted. Could it be any more apparent that these corporations are not interested in curing any disease? It is no wonder that cancer drugs have actually been found to kill patients more quickly than cancer itself, and are astronomically overpriced. In a telling statement, study co-author Salmon Hyder writes:

“Since apigenin is easily extracted from plants, pharmaceutical companies don’t stand to profit from the treatment; hence the industry won’t put money into studying something you can grow in your garden.”

The treatment, of course, could be utilized by everyone from their own homes. The study found that apigenin worked even on deadly, fast-growing breast tumors through inhibiting cell growth and suppressing the expression of a gene that is known to be associated with cancer growth. In other words, it is a miracle super-ingredient. Furthermore, blood vessels that are known to fuel cancer cells were also found to shrink and receive restricted nutrient flow to the tumor — starving the ability to proliferate.

All of these effects were from foods rich in apigenin such as celery, parsley, thyme, as well as a wide variety of fruit and vegetables. It is even possible to find apigenin in supplement form, which could allow for higher concentrations for cancer sufferers. The fact that pharmaceutical companies and cancer research organizations alike continue to fund major drug development studies while ignoring the true power of ingredients like apigenin, turmeric, and ginger, shows their inexorable desire to run away from the true cure. Needless to say, this is only one of many cancer fighting foods.
