Chemotherapy is a conventional cancer treatment. It consists of harmful drugs that actually destroy your body’s ability to fight cancer. These drugs have toxic effect that affects our natural immunity. (1)
What is worse, after having chemo, patients are at a higher risk of developing cancer later in their life. Health experts agree that the best anti-cancer treatment is eating foods with strong cancer-fighting abilities, preferably plant-based foods.
Studies have confirmed that pineapple is the best natural remedy when it comes to preventing and treating cancer, provided by a strong cancer-fighting compound.
Bromelain kills cancer cells without harming healthy cells
Bromelain is a unique compound found in pineapples, and it exhibits an effect called “selective cytotoxicity,” meaning it kills cancer cells without damaging healthy cells and tissues. (2)
This enzyme can be extracted from pineapple stems, and a research confirmed that it is superior when compared to chemotherapy drugs. The journal Planta Medica published the results of this research, as noted by the researchers, “This antitumoral effect [of bromelain] was superior to that of 5-FU [5-fluorouracil], whose survival index was approximately 263%, relative to the untreated control.” (3)
GredMedInfo noted, “When a person dies following conventional cancer treatment it is all too easy to ‘blame the victim’ and simply write that patient’s cancer off as ‘chemo-resistant,’ or ‘exceptionally aggressive,’ when in fact the non-selective nature of the chemotoxic agent is what ultimately lead to their death.” (4)
Selective cytotoxicity is only found in natural compounds
No chemotherapy drug ever developed has the same effect as bromelain, because it is only found in natural compounds from real food sources. Other natural compounds aside from bromelain are also able to kill cancer cells without damaging the healthy cells. (5)
We have listed some of these natural compounds:
Dr. Ronald Hunninghake did a groundbreaking 15 research project, and he named it RECNAC -- cancer spelled backwards. His project involved vitamin C and its cytotoxicity against cancer cells. (5,6)
Solasodine rhamnosyl glycosides (BEC) is an extract contained in eggplants, which kills cancer cells and without interfering with healthy cells. Eggplant extract cream is efficient in treating skin cancer. (5)
Turmeric (Curcumin extract)
It is one of the most intensely researched spices for displaying selective cytotoxicity. In 2011 a group of scientists conducted a study and found that polyphenol contained in turmeric can reduce brain tumors without affecting the viability of brain cells. (5)
Unfortunately, bromelain and other natural substances will probably never be FDA approved, even though they have proven to be effective, safe and affordable. (4) The good thing is that it is up to you to make a good decision when it comes to your own health.
