Green tea shown to kill cancer cells; pharmaceutical industry can't wait
to exploit findings
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic have found that phytochemicals in green
tea kill cancer cells. Green tea was chosen because it has long been
observed that populations around the world that consume green tea
experience far lower rates of cancer. Green tea also has no negative
side effects, unlike chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and other radical
approaches to cancer.
Now for the real story: this research is great
to see, but it was conducted with a very "Western" approach by trying to
isolate and identify the specific chemical compounds responsible for the
anti-cancer effect. No doubt, pharmaceutical companies will take this
information and attempt to synthesize and patent a similar chemical
compound, then hype it to the public with news headlines that never
mention green tea.
In reality, you can get the full anti-cancer
effects by just drinking green tea, and that's information the
pharmaceutical industry doesn't want you to know. In fact, all the
medicine you'll ever need is found in abundance in plants, and usually
at a fraction of the cost of prescription drugs.
The bottom line:
it's nice to see this research being done, but Western medicine won't
honor green tea and use it medicinally; they'll exploit it to create a
new profit generator for drug companies.
