Asparagus for Cancer Patients

    This is from a friend
     My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style
     asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in
     the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did
     this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3
     lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell
     count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.
     Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3
                 THE ARTICLE:
                 Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a
                 friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy
                 of an article, entitled, ‘Asparagus for cancer’ printed in
                 Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it
                 here, just as it was shared with me:
                 I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet

                 to health or over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned

                 of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that

                 asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked

                 with him on his project We have accumulated a number

                 of favorable case histories. Here are a few examples:

Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case

                 of Hodgkin’s disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who

                 was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting

                 the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to

                 detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a

                 schedule of strenuous exercise.

Case No. 2, a successful businessman 68 years old

                 who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years.

                 After years of medical treatments, including radiation

                 without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3

                 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor

                 had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.
Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he

                 was put on the operating table where they found
                 lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable.

                 The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case

                 hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus

                 therapy and immediately started taking it By August,

                 x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had

                 He is back at his regular business routine.
Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of
                 years with skin cancer. She finally developed different
                 skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting
                 specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting
                 on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin
                 looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman
                 reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her
                 kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10
                 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving
                 government disability payments for an inoperable,
                 terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of
                 this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.
                 I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of
                 materia medica’, edited in1854 by a Professor at the
                 University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was
                 used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even
                 referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of
                 asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!
                 We would have other case histories but the medical
                 establishment has interfered with our obtaining some

                 of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to
                 spread this good news and help us to gather a large
                 number of case histories that will overwhelm the

                 medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and

                 natural remedy.

For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked

                 before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just

                 as good as fresh. I have corresponded with the two

                 leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I

                 am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or

                 Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to
                 make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the
                 patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and
                 evening. Patients usually show some improvement in

                 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a
                 cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on
                 present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do
                 no harm and may be needed in some cases. As a

                 biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what

                 cures can prevent.’ Based on this theory, my wife and I

                 have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with

                 our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to

                 suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take

                 mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we

                 have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as

                 part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey,

                 taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the

                 nutritional approach to health, showed substantial

                 improvements in all categories over the last one, and

                 we can attribute these improvements to nothing but

                 the asparagus drink.
                 As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all
                 aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a
                 result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better
                 with the latest theories about cancer.
                 Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called
                 histones, which are believed to be active in controlling
                 cell growth.. For that reason, I believe asparagus can
                 be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth
                 normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and
                 in acting as a general body tonic. In any event,
                 regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is

                 a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you

                 from using it and it may do you much good. It has

                 been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that
                 asparagus is the highest tested food containing
                 glutathione, which is considered one of the body’s

                 most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
