An eight-year study by a medical research institute has found that a compound in blushwood berries that kills cancer cells in skin melanomas. Not only is the compound highly effective with no side effects, but scientists were amazed at how fast the compounds started working. The fruit compound started working in five minutes, making the cancerous melanoma and neck tumors disappear in a matter of days.
The compound was 75% successful in fighting skin cancer on dogs, cats, and horses. The research led by Dr. Glen Boyle, from the QIMR Berghofer medical research institute in Brisbane, is highly promising and could be a potential cure for fighting several surface cancers.
Blushwood berries come from the Blushwood tree, which has very specific growing requirements and has only been found to grow in pockets of Far North Queensland in the Australian Rainforest. It grows nowhere else.
The cancer-fighting compound is extracted from the berry’s seed through a complicated purification process. Why the compound is found in the berry and how it works is still unknown.
Tests of the EBC-46 drug (derived from the berry) were run by QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute. All animals treated in the study were considered by veterinary practitioners to have untreatable disease using current standards of care. Many of the animals treated were within weeks of being euthanized.
“The surprising thing for us and the thing that we don’t see very often is the speed with which this occurs, Dr. Boyle explained. “Usually when you treat a tumor it takes several weeks for it to resolve, but this is very, very rapid. There’s a purpling of the area, of the tumor itself, and you see that within five minutes and you come back the next day and the tumor’s black and you come back a few days later and the tumor’s fallen off.”
We are watching this one closely as we have family and friends affected by this deadly disease. I hope we get to see it destroyed forever; so many have suffered because of it.
Have a great day CJ Henderson Live Clean Live Well.
