Dandelion Root. The cure for Cancer?

According to recent studies Dandelion root may kill up to 98% of cancers cells in only 24 hours. Dandelion root extract  could be a non-toxic and effective anti-cancer alternative treatment for reducing the occurrence of cancer cells. Dandelion root extract also seems to only attack cancer cells and does not harm healthy cells, it selectively impairs the migration of for example colon cancer cells.  It might be considered as a non-toxic alternative to convention cancer therapy today. The usage is already approved by Health  Canada for Phase I clinical trials in hematological cancers.

Already in 1999 Japanese laboratory research published an article about the dandelion root’s antitumor potential and concluded that the root could be a valuable agent against cancer.

Dandelions have been used for centuries in different cultures all around the world to treat all kinds of ailments. The leaves which can be used in salads have long been used as a diuretic. Unlike many other diuretics it does not cause a loss of potassium because dandelion leaves already contain high amounts of potassium themselves. In addition, it is effective to treat high blood pressure by reducing the volume of fluid in the body.  The root is proven to be good for the liver as it is detoxifying. It works also on the gallbladder to help remove waste products and stimulates the kidneys to remove toxins from the urine. The leaves as well as the root can be used to prevent gallstones and dissolve already formed gallstones.

Dandelion can be used for many conditions including, skin problems such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. As well as for arthritic conditions such as osteoarthritis and gout. It is also beneficial for constipation.
