Grape Extract Causes Cancer Cells Suicide

 

According to US research, an extract found in grape seeds may have the ability to kill off cancer cells. Lab tests exposed leukemia cells to the extract, and within 24 hours 76% of them had killed themselves. Healthy cells went unharmed.

Grapeseed extract has shown also to be effective against lung, stomach, prostate, skin, breast and bowel cancer in lab tests. Grapeseeds hold the antioxidant resveratrol, which has properties that are not only anti-cancer but also good for the heart.

Lead researcher Professor Xianglin Shi said: "What everyone seeks is an agent that has an effect on cancer cells but leaves normal cells alone, and this shows that grapeseed extract fits into this category."

  Actually I heard..  
 
That there was going to be a war declared on NAPA valley, France, and Spain as they were harboring illegal immigrant terrorists and plotting a war against the US.. that is until Obama kicked George Bush the *@#% out! Besides, there are enough grapes to go around people!

  This is fantastic news  
 
I hope they fund more research into this potential cure for cancer; it seems very promising.

  Dont tell Big Pharma  
 
Or else this plant will be illegal very soon. Big Pharma is not interested in cures, only in "treatments". A cured person is not a customer.

  Just a question...  
 
Does it have to be grape SEED extract?
Maybe plain wine would do...

  False hopes  
 
The researchers keeps taunting the public for possible cancer cures raising their hopes up and yet you won't hear about it afterwards. They should tell the public when there's a definite cure. Where are all the billions of dollars in donations going?

  Make sense....  
 
They always taught us in my high school that most cancers are caused by lifestyle diseases. Sugary sodas, fatty foods, and a lack of exercise and sleep...years of abuse to your body all contribute. Makes sense that using something which is known to be healthy for the body would help combat certain types of cancer. I'm not sure I'll be running with the idea that this could possibly be a "cure" for cancer, but I'm not opposed to the idea that if you eat right, exercise and get enough sleep...then your risk of getting cancer is probably substantially lower than the average person.

how sad is it when the average person doesn't include people taking care of themselves.

granted I used to not take care of myself, but that was for different reasons.

  Wine  
 
If it is found that wine also contains it I might have to change my drinking habits.

  Resveratrol Supplements are Available Now  
 
Resveratrol can help you to lead a long and healthy life so says many
doctors. Red wine alone does not supply enough resveratrol to achieve the
full range of benefits because one glass of red wine has only about
1mg of resveratrol and you need about 250mg/day. You need to take
high potency resveratrol supplements to achieve the results documented
in scientific studies.Resveratrol Supplements can also help you control
your weight naturally by increasing energy, reducing cravings, and limiting
your appetite.According to Wikipedia, Consumer Lab, an independent dietary
supplement and over the counter products evaluation organization,
published a report on 13 November 2007 on the popular resveratrol
supplements. The organization reported that there exists a wide range
in quality, dose, and price among the 13 resveratrol products
evaluated. The actual amount of resveratrol contained in the
different brands range from 2.2mg for Revatrol, which claimed to have
400mg of "Red Wine Grape Complex", to 500mg for Biotivia.com Transmax,
which is consistent with the amount claimed on the product's label.
Prices per 100mg of resveratrol ranged from less than $.30 for
products made by Biotivia.com, jarrow, and country life, to a high of
$45.27 for the Revatrol brand.

then why do they make vaccines? or antibiotics? or anything else that can actually *cure* people?

Pretty sad. Kids need to be taught how to keep themselves healthy in school. Just another application that would be quite practical in the Public School System, of which there seem to be few. Parents should share some responsibility too, how hard is it to give your kids grape juice and celery, rather than a Big Mac and Coke?
