Chinese plant compound has stunning anti-cancer properties
Chinese plant compound wipes out cancer in 40 days, says new research of the University of Minnesota’s Masonic Cancer Center. Published in the journal Science Translational Medicine and funded by the National Institutes of Health, the research reveald stunning anti-cancer properties of the compound. Tripterygium wilfordii, or lei gong teng, sometimes called Thunder God Vine, is a vine used in traditional Chinese medicine for treatment of fever, chills, edema and carbuncle.
‘Thunder god vine’ or lei gong teng is a Chinese plant used for ages in remedying a number of conditions including rheumatoid arthritis. The plant is now making headlines as a cancer killer, with the compound of the plant vanishing tumors in mice with pancreatic cancer, says
Tripterygium wilfordii recently has been investigated as a treatment for a variety of disorders including rheumatoid arthritis, chronic hepatitis, chronic nephritis, ankylosing spondylitis, polycystic kidney disease as well as several skin disorders. It is also under investigation for its apparent antifertility effects, which it is speculated, may provide a basis for a Male oral contraceptive.
“While it is great news that this study is bringing the beneficial effects of inexpensive and near-free plant compounds to light, the bad news is that the individuals responsible for the research are actually looking to create a pharmaceutical drug from the essential component triptolide,” commented naturalsociety. “A drug that will seek FDA [US Food and Drug Administration] approval and ultimately be patented, nutritionally ruined, and sold for exorbitant amounts of cash. Instead, just get your hands on some thunder god vine for yourself,.”
