‘Joint’ Hope For Smokers And Lung Cancer Patients

marijuana

Marijuana, or better known as ‘pot’ has always been nothing but a common drug used to get high. Suddenly, out of nowhere came this eye opening piece of news that the active ingredient in marijuana may help fight lung cancer.

Researchers at Harvard University found that the substance called THC stops tumor growth in common lung cancer by 50% while preventing the progress of the cancer cells circulating. Dr. Len Horovotz of Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC confirmed the suppressive effects of THC in several lines of cancer cells. When injected into 15 mice with prostate cancer, this ‘smart bomb’ therapy eliminated all signs of cancer! Effectively curing the rodents. Researchers at Columbia University, in New York City, said the therapy also worked in rats with breast cancer and melanomas.

As the findings are fresh out of the oven it advised to approach the matter carefully. The only animal tested on are lab rats injected with human cancer cells. Findings were reported at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in Los Angeles in mid April 2007.

Note that lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the world. The kind that over-produces EGF receptors tend to be extra-aggressive and don’t respond well to chemotherapy.

You know what’s the funniest thing that could happen if all goes well?
Encouraging cigarette smokers to add marijuana.

Here Is A Type Of Nutrient That Your Heart Will Love

Omega-3 fatty acids, benefiting the heart of healthy people, and those at high risk of cardiovascular diseases like heart attack and stroke. I remember when I was young, my mum fed me with cod liver oil every night before bed. At that time, I didn’t really know what were the potential benefits but I liked the taste. The type that my mum bought was in liquid form.

I learned more about the benefits of Omega-3 during high school’s science class. My favourite meat was mutton, until I came to learn that fish was a healthier alternative. Fish is a good source of protein and doesn’t have the high saturated fat that fatty meat products do. Types of fish that can be found in your local market like mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna and salmon are very high in omega-3 fatty acids.

Other recommended food include :

  • tofu
  • other forms of soybeans
  • canola
  • walnut
  • flaxseed oil

Food in the list above contain alpha-linolenic acid (LNA), which can become omega-3 fatty acid in the body. Meat from grass fed animals like lamb, chicken, and cows have higher percentage of Omega-3. Even eggs from grass fed chicken produce higher Omega-3 than grain-fed or soy-fed ones. Half a pint of milk from grain-fed cows provide 10% of the recommended daily intake, while a piece of organic cheese the size of a matchbox may provide up to 88%.

So take more fish. Drink soya bean instead of milk. If the heart needs more power, supplement with cod liver oil capsules. Live longer. Live to see your great grandson in your arms.
