Just about everyone, me included, know someone diagnosed with lymphomas and other forms of cancer. Everyone who experiences unusual symptoms always dreads going to their doctor for fear of being diagnosed with some form of cancer…no other word in medicine provokes the same intensity of fear.

Lymphoma, specifically, is divided into two classes, Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's, which are in turn further classified into B-cell and T-cell groups.
Now researchers found a natural substance of seaweed extract that, when cultivated in the laboratory exclusively on lymphoma cell lines, suppressed the lymphoma growth while leaving healthy cells completely intact. The researchers also noted a significant increase in apoptosis, otherwise known as cellular death, within the lymphoma cancer cells.
About 4 percent of the total dry weight of many types of brown seaweed is made up of the polysaccharide known as Fucoidan – a sulfated polysaccharide that has a complex structure. Its main components include a sulfuric esterified L-fucose, a healing sugar, and the trace elements of galactose, xylose, and glucuronic acid.
The results of their study were presented at the AACR Dead Sea International Conference on Advances in Cancer Research. The conference was at the
The Ocean’s Greatest Treasures
Fucoidan has been touted as one of the ocean's greatest treasures...additionally, it is a renewable resource that continues to grow as only the tips of the seaweed are harvested.
Among the many benefits reported for fucoidan in addition to being an anti-tumor agent include:
· helps modulate the immune system,
· supports normal cellular health and disposal of non-native cells,
· supports blood circulation to native body cells,
· helps prevent common colds and influenzas,
· supports normal blood pressure,
· detoxifies the body against heavy metals,
· acts as an anti-contraceptive,
· helps reduce cholesterol levels,
· supports healthy joint mobility at all ages,
· is believed to help stimulate immune response when the body is attacked and,
· may help regenerate healthy skin tissue, as in wound healing.
“New therapies are desperately needed because some forms of B-cell lymphoma are especially resistant to standard treatment," according to Mohammad Irhimeh, Ph.D., assistant professor of hematology oncology* and stem cells at the
Irhimeh said that research would continue to study the mechanism of fucoidan with the goal of conducting phase II or III clinical trials with human volunteers.
The money spent for cancer treatments is significant – in the
Conventional toxic cancer treatments sabotage the entire defense mechanisms of the body in order to kill cancer cells while, unfortunately, also killing or damaging the immune system in the process. The price for cancer treatments has increased over 10 times in the past 20 years… could it be there’s A LOT more profit in sickness care than in health care?
Just imagine a natural immunity booster product that would have no harmful side effects, contains multiple health-enhancing benefits, comes from a renewable natural product, is inexpensive, and reduces the incidence of cancer, common cold, respiratory and gastrointestinal infections, to mention just a few. Fucoidan can have a dramatic effect on cancer cells, yet cannot legally be promoted as such. As an investigative health journalist, I pass this information on to my readers so that they can make informed choices if that dreaded “C” word ever enters your life or the lives of those you love. There are several well-respected nutraceutical companies that supply Fucoidan in capsule form, do your homework and source one out.
*Hematology-oncology = The diagnosis, treatment and prevention of blood diseases (hematology) and cancer (oncology) and research into them. Sometimes abbreviated as hem-onc.
Nature’s Self-destruction Mechanism
Scientists knew that seaweeds containing fucoidan were found to have anti-tumor activity in mice and some cell lines, and Japanese researchers at the Biomedical Research Laboratories and the Research Institute for Glycotechnology Advancement found that seaweeds containing Fucoidan caused various types of established cancer cell lines to self-destruct. Examples of cancer cells that self-destructed due to fucoidan included certain kinds of leukemia cells, stomach cancer cells, and cancer cells of the descending colon.
The people of Okinawa, Japan enjoy some of the highest life expectancies in the country and also consume one of the highest per capita amount of the seaweed kombu. The cancer death rate in Okinawa is the lowest of all the prefectures in
Fucoidan's anti-cancer properties may also be good news for dogs and cats. Lymphoma is one of the most prevalent cancers in these animals and, as noted above, lymphoma is one of the types of cancer which fucoidan has been found to be the most effective.
Within the molecular structure of fucoidan is the presence of fucose which is a healing sugar and should NOT be confused with fructose (the sugar from fruits). Fucose is also found abundantly in human breast milk, the reason most new mothers are encouraged to breast feed their babies in order to provide them a good head start in life by boosting their immune system the way nature intended.
The Way I See It!
We DO have options, if you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer or an immune system disorder, consider the information provided in this article…don’t accept toxic therapies without understanding their health-depleting affects and survival rates…which aren’t good enough for me, naturally!
