Researchers of Jefferson’s Kimmel Cancer Center have produced genetic evidence suggesting antioxidant drugs could help prevent and treat cancer. With research already showcasing the powers of various cancer fighting foods, this research further shows how dangerous mainstream medical testing and treatments can be outranked by nature’s gifts.
“Antioxidants have been associated with cancer reducing effects—beta carotene, for example—but the mechanisms, the genetic evidence, has been lacking,” says lead researcher Michael P. Lisanti, M.D., Ph.D. “Now we have genetic proof that mitochondrial oxidative stress is important for driving tumor growth.”
Oxidative Stress and Tumor Growth
Lisanti’s study shows that loss of the tumor suppressor protein Caveolin-1 (Cav-1) stimulates mitochondrial oxidative stress in the stromal micro-environment. If this is Greek to you, let’s put it this way: if a woman has breast cancer and has the biomarker Cav-1, she has greater chances of survival than someone who doesn’t have the Cav-1 protein. The loss of the protein, in fact, leads to oxidative stress, thereby quadrupling in tumor mass and volume with no increase in tumor angiogenesis.
That’s where antioxidants step in.
Antioxidants Interfere with Cancer Growth
Lisanti wasn’t the first to see antioxidants reducing oxidative stress. A 2008 study published in the March 14th issue of Science pointed out that antioxidants put up interference in cancer communication. This stops and even reverses cancer growth throughout the body.
“There are already antioxidant drugs out there on the market as dietary supplements, like N-zcetyl cysteine,” says Lisanti. Anti-cancer drugs targeting oxidative stress—like NAC—haven’t entered mainstream medicine because it is commonly believed to reduce the effectiveness of current chemotherapies that increase oxidative stress. (And there’s too much money to be made by pharmaceutical companies to put a stop to that, yet.)
Lisanti insists, “Now that we have genetic proof that oxidative stress and resulting autophagy [production of recycled nutrients] are important for driving tumor growth, we should reconsider using antioxidants and autophagy inhibitors as anti-cancer agents.”
Luckily for us, help in the prevention or treatment of cancer doesn’t have to come in pill form. Read up on the antioxidants found in papaya leaves, ginger, and turmeric right here on Natural Society—maybe while drinking a small glass of red wine.

Published research shows that 'Maharishi Amrit Kalash' is the most potent antioxidant available. Red wine may have some anti oxidant value but unfortunately it is far outweighed by the oxidative effect of the alcohol content. Alcohol is by far the greatest producer of free radical damage in the body. A good book on the subject is 'Freedom from Disease' by Dr Hari Sharma.
And if you prevent cancer, then you wouldnt need the anti-oxidants to help, would you. But how do you prevent if we dont know the causes? Ah, yes, but ee do, except that your foc. is not permitted to tell you.
That is the reason cancer is only treatments and not cured. A cruel, inhuman trillion dollar industry cannot be allowed to be fall if a cure existed.
So how is it controlled?
No alternative cancer cure is allowed to be published in any of the now exposed-as-corrupt med journals*, and that makes it illegal for your doc to even mention it, let alone cure you with any such protocol.
In the mid-1980s a famous US physician, Dr. Robert Good, became interested in an alternative cancer therapy that in clinical trials was shown to work well. At that point, Dr. Good was one of the most published authors in scientific literature, with over 2,000 articles to his name. He was the father of modern immunology and performed the first bone marrow transplant. He had been nominated for the Nobel Prize three times. By every measure, Dr. Robert Good was as mainstream as mainstream could be imagined up to his epiphany about cancer treatment.
When Dr. Good wrote about this alternative cancer treatment, he was refused publication in all medical journals because the findings were "too controversial," and flew in the face of conventional medical doctrine. He had strayed too far outside the bounds of what was "acceptable," and that was simply out of the question for the rest of the mainstream, even coming from someone with credentials as outstanding as Dr. Good's.
We have The Cure and Prevention of All Cancers, 2007, H R Clark PhD ND, privately published, exactly for this reason.
Dr Clark, an ex-Canadian Govt. cell research biologist carried out over half a million repeatable, so scientifically VALID bio-resonance comparison tests to identify the specific bacteria, viruses, parasites, heavy metals, dyes, moulds, radio-active substances, and benzene, asbestos, food allergens etc that are the cause of all cancers.
Other cures address most of these factors, and by doing so, they interrupt the cancer pathways. That stops the malignancy, sometimes within 24 hours. (Clark H R, PhD ND, 1995). The then boosted immune systems digest the tumor. Some of the cures are those of Drs Raymond Rife, and Robert Beck; (electrical); Dr Burzynski (gene targetting with drugs); , Germany`s ozone cure;; and the herbal route of essiac, Dr. Marijah McCain, H Hoxey and Jason Winters.
Is it not time to expose this cruel and inhuman industry, after the GSK affair, that just touching the tip of the crooked medical and farma giant iceberg.
