Scientists have discovered that this not so familiar Chinese plant, with a bizarre name is really amazing cancer killer.
The plant was tested on mice who had pancreatic cancer. In just 40 days there was no longer any trace of it!
Scientists in charge of the experiment now hope to get money to conduct research on people.
The plant called “thunder god vine” or lei gong teng, is used long ago in Chinese medicine to treat a number of diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis.
According to the latest research from the University of Minnesota’s Masonic Cancer Center, with the use of this plant, after 40 days the body does not show any signs of tumor – even when the therapy is discontinued.
The research on this miracle herb, as it called, is promoted in the Science Translational Medicine journal.
Scientists believe that this plant is so effective because it contains a large amount triptolidi, which in previous studies has been identified as a “fighter against cancer” – ingredient.
Scientists say the cure for cancer is in herbs that are known for years, but just like dandelion, this new discovery is also free, compared to expensive and dangerous drugs for cancer, and pharmaceutical companies have no interest to invest in further research.
But even though this plant is really cheap, some scientists involved in the research, are trying to make cure out of this plant which would will get FDA approval, and thus the drug will be patented and sold.
