More than one million people in the United States get cancer each year. Cancer, also called malignancy, is an abnormal growth of cells. There are more than 100 types of cancer, including breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and lymphoma. Symptoms vary depending on the type. Cancer treatment may include chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery.
Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are two of the most effective treatment approaches for cancer. Until you have to undergo the treatment, it is difficult to understand the difference. Chemotherapy refers to a chemical or drug given to destroy cancer cells. Chemotherapy is prescribed by a medical oncologist.
Moringaoleifera is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Moringa, which is the only genus in the family Moringaceae. English common names include: moringa, drumstick tree, horseradish tree, ben oil tree, or benzoil tree.
Moringa is a naturally grown plant native to India, but is cultivated worldwide in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. It is known for its nutritional and medicinal properties that potentially can help combat the symptoms of cancer, asthma, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other diseases.
Alongside moringa’s powerful nutritional profile, there exists incredible medicinal potential. Chemical compounds found in moringa have demonstrated several beneficial biochemical activities, such as combating atherosclerosis and heart disease,boosting the immune system, and have antiviral, antibacterial, antioxidant, andtumor-suppressive effects.
Although modern medical researchers are slowly discovering the powerful potential Moringa offers, natural healing traditions in Europe, Asia and Africa have known the value of the Moringa plant for centuries. In general, studies have shown Moringa induces cancer cell apoptosis (or self-destruction), inhibits tumor cell growth, reduces cancer cell proliferation and lowers the level of internal reactive oxygen species (ROS, or free radicals) that cause oxidative stress and DNA damage associated with cancer.
It just might be a powerful food to keep your body cancer free for years to come.
