A new hope has been given to people living with cancer. The good news came from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Windsor, Canada. The study showed that dandelion root simply “kills” cancer-infected cells without damaging to other body cells.
Canadian scientists have concluded that the dandelions root have stronger effects than chemotherapy because it completely kills cells affected by this disease. Initially, the team noted that dandelion root extract pushed to suicide one of the most treatment-resistant cancer cells – chronic myeloid leukemia.
John Di Carlo, an old man of 72 years – leukemia patient – was personally convinced of the miraculous powers of this plant. After more than three years it has been the subject of countless aggressive and intense chemotherapy sessions, he was disappointed to find that they had no effect.
Because he had nothing to lose anyway and doctors had offered him no alternative, John started to drink dandelion root tea daily as the last battle against the disease.
According to the North American press, after no more than 4 months since the first cup of tea, the cancer went into obvious remission. That was in 2010. John is well and healthy today.
This tender plant has more curative effects than it would seem at first glance. Dandelion leaves are rich in fiber, potassium, iron, zinc, vitamins A, C, D, E, K and part of the B complex vitamins. It is known for years that dandelion root contains up to 535% of the required amount of vitamin C and 110% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A.
They are used in cooking (salads, especially) – especially by raw vegans. The flowers are used in the production of certain wines. And – so far, the roots were used as – you’ll never guess! – … coffee substitute.
