Everyday herbs prove to be convenient healers; garlic proves itself against cancer and cholesterol

Even familiar herbs offer potent healing abilities: garlic, parsley, sage, ginger, basil and rosemary all offer positive healing effects without the dangerous negative side effects often associated with prescription drugs. And yet the healing potential of these herbs goes way beyond the simple uses mentioned here. Garlic is useful for far more than lowering cholesterol; it's also a potent anti-cancer therapy. Taken internally (by eating garlic cloves or drinking garlic juice, preferrably raw), garlic has been shown to shrink tumors in the breast, stomach and colon. Used externally as a paste applied to surface tumors, garlic simply destroys them, causing many to fall off in a matter of days or weeks.

Garlic and ginger are named two of the most potent anti-cancer foods in the book Eat To Beat Cancer, a highly recommended read for those who want to prevent or reverse cancer. In fact, they are far more effective and safe than any prescription drug. For a real cure, toss in some apricot kernels (which have been banned by the FDA because they're more effective than chemotherapy), some graviola tincture (suppressed by the pharmaceutical industry), nutritional supplements containing cat's claw, and some burdock root (be careful, avoid high doses of this) and you have a potent, all-natural cure for cancer that the pharmaceutical industry absolutely does not want you to know about.

Why? Because if people used these natural remedies to cure their cancers, sales of prescription drugs and chemotherapy agents would plummet. Organized medicine depends on cancer patients for their jobs and profits. If people get well on their own, the cancer industry would be devastated. (Read Questioning Chemotherapy by Ralph Moss to get the real story.) To make sure that never happens, the industry attacks anything outside of their control, which is why you'll continue to see the very herbs mentioned here subjected to a massive propaganda campaign designed to discredit their medicinal qualities.

Yet secretly, behind closed doors, it is precisely these plants and herbs that pharmaceutical company chemists are studying in order to derive their next "miracle" anti-cancer drug. So while the industry blasts the use of garlic as an anti-cancer herb, they'll someday release a prescription drug that tries to mimic garlic's actions, but they'll charge patients $100 a pill. Garlic, in comparison, is a few dollars a pound. Go figure.

See, this is where health care costs come into play: the way to control our spiraling health care costs isn't to negotiate with drug companies or "create competition" among drug suppliers. The solution is to ditch drugs and turn to natural substances that are available at a fraction of the price. Want to save the nation a billion dollars a year on prescription drugs? Ditch statins and start prescribing red yeast rice and garlic supplements, both of which effectively and demonstrably lower bad cholesterol and dramatically reduce the risk of heart attacks -- much better than statins, without the side effects and without the cost.

That's the real solution to our so-called health care crisis: turn to nature. Nature has ALL the answers we really need to health. Drug companies, the FDA, and most modern doctors have no answers whatsoever, only bills.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
