Asparagus & Cancer –

asparagus is not a medical cure consult doctor if sick
this op is about the compounds i found while cheaking the facts of the email

I was sent this email and encouraged to share with everybody i knew
So with the information it contained i have researched what chemicals are involved and there effects on health what i found was staggering
Reproduced with owners wishes

Who knew? Has anybody heard of this? (I like asparagus anyway)

One woman's story

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 months.


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 favourable 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 68 year old businessman, who suffered from cancer of the bladder of 16 years.
After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumour 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 disappeared...

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 sceptics about this unbelievably simple 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 preservatives.

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 a 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,

Histones are the proteins closely associated with DNA molecules. They are responsible for the structure of chromatin and play important roles in the regulation of gene expression. Five


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,
Glutathione is described as a master antioxidant and is three key imenoacids that is produced by the liver which is the major organ for detoxification
This one key chemical helps remove toxins and invigorates the immune system
and is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.

glutathione /glu•ta•thi•one/ (gloo″tah-thi´ōn) a tripeptide of glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine, existing in reduced (GSH) and oxidized (GSSG) forms and functioning in various redox reactions: in the destruction of peroxides and free radicals, as a cofactor for enzymes, and in the detoxification of harmful compounds. It is also involved in the formation and maintenance of disulfide bonds in proteins and in transport of amino acids across cell membranes.

the extent that the cell growth normalizer and glutathione act together is astounding and i don’t endorse taking capsules or pills as both components are required for automatic cell death of abnormal cells and for antioxidant detoxification of cells prior to cell damage
there is anecdotal evidence of longer life spans with higher consumption of the humble asparagus

Every time I think of the word asparagus, I think of how Moe(?) used to say it on the 3 Stooges.

He'd put the emphasis as AS-par-A-gus instead of AS-PAR-a-gus. Ah, I hope that's understandable...But more on topic now, this is an excellent bit of information. Thanks much for the thread

While I would love to hear truthful stories that a certain food can cure cancer for everyone who has it, I did a quick internet search and found this.
The story in the link sounds like a common story about asparagus which was retold here. The truth reworded from the article I linked is that there is no proof that certain foods cause cancer to be created or destroyed.

I don't want people having false hope of a miraculous cure and foregoing medical treatment because of any false hope. A good diet and reducing fat and possibly eating asparagus may lower the chances of getting cancer in the first place though. I personally do not like too many greens so I would hope the same substances are available through other dietary supplements.

People need to do a bit of googling before accepting this stuff at face value.
That said, if it was me with cancer and someone said I could cure it by singing the alleluia chorus three times a day while standing on my head, I would try it. So long as the alternative remedy is not harmful and it doesn't stop someone seeking conventional treatment, I guess, why not.

Thanks for the Asparagus recipes.

Asparagus just ROCKS.

I'd like to add though, if you're really looking to reap the benefits of Asparagus? Eat it lightly grilled, or steamed - but forget about all the recipes including things like BACON, unless you're just wanting a special treat.

Best to keep it simple and pure...

i wouldnt want people to get the wrong idea here the email lead me to check the claims of asparagus being a cancer cure in and in my look into it i found two interesting compounds (resurch them for yourself)
cancer is an illness for illnesses see a doctor

but if an old wives tale like asparagus has two very critical compounds in it that could be good for you then

the life cycle of asparagus is also truly amazing

talking to my grandfather who grew asparagus
he said that asparagus here takes two years to grow a crop
overnight the sprout goes from below grownd to 10cm OVERNIGHT

"We are very dependent on the weather. The cold winter has delayed the start of the season slightly but it also affects us day by day. If it's cold overnight the asparagus grows slowly but if it's warm a spear can grow up to 10cm in a day.''

Foods considered moderately high in purines but which may not raise the risk of gout include: asparagus, cauliflower, mushrooms, peas, spinach, whole grain breads and cereals, chicken, duck, ham, turkey, kidney and lima beans. It is important to remember that purines are found in all protein foods. All sources of purines should not be eliminated.

Thank you for this information.

I can add my experience with asparagus treating my kidney stones.
I lost count how many stones I have passed, I quit counting in the 50's so I consider myself somewhat of a kidney stone expert. My stones are made up of calcium oxalate, the most common type of stone.
My last stone was a 7mm monster that some how made its way out of the kidney and had lodged 1 inch into the ureter, my doctor wanted to preform a lithotripsy as there was no way I could pass this stone.
You can pass a 5mm stone with some effort but a stone of that size would require help.
Stones are one of the most painful things I have ever experienced there is no relief short of a good shot of morphine.
I would have spent the 2000 or even 5000 dollars for relief regardless if I could afford it.

I had herd about asparagus as a way to dissolve stones and by advice of an aunt
I gave it a try. I like asparagus and the other component in her recipe the only thing was the amounts required.
3 cans asparagus and one 2 liter bottle of coke. It took me 2 hours to get it all down.
the next morning I realized the pain had subsided and later that day I passed small fragments
of what was left of that 7mm stone. My aunt told me that the coke has uric acid that in concert with the asparagus breaks up and flushes the stone from the body.

I take a healthy dose of asparagus every day and for the last 4 months have been stone free.
Call me crazy but I did not have to spend the thousands for the lithotripsy procedure, it cost me $6.87 in harmless groceries to get relief.
