Since cancer is one of the deadliest diseases, scientists are constantly trying to find products that will finally put an end to this disease, and one of them is this herb that for only 16 hours can kill more than 98% of cancer cells.
In fact, according to studies that have been published in “Life Science”, artemisinin, derivative of the herb “Sweet wormwood” or “Artemisia Annua”, has been used in Chinese medicine and the same can kill 98% of the cancer cells of the breast in less than 16 hours.
If you use this plant by itself, it can cause 28 percent reduction in breast cancer cells, but in combination with iron, “Artemisia Annua” the cancer cells will be gone completely.
Artemisinin in the past has been used as a powerful anti-malarial tool, but is now proven that this drug is effective against cancer. During a study, iron was added to this herb, which is often deposited in breast tissue, especially in cells infected with cancer. Artemisinin selectively attacked “bad” cells, while “good” cells would leave untouched.
“Taken together, our results demonstrate that sweet wormwood hampering factor E2F1 transcripts mediates cell-stop round of breast cancer cells and is a critical transcription path sweet wormwood controls the reproductive growth of cancer cells,” they say in the conclusion of the research laboratory for cancer at the University of California.
Iron accumulates in cancer cells with specific receptors that help them in dividing cells (called “transferrin” receptors). Normal cells probably have these receptors, but cancer cells have them in large quantities, and thus can be targeted by combining iron and sweet wormwood.
There have been a lot of experiments which prove that the sweet wormwood can effectively eliminate the disease in the presence of iron. This extract has been used in China for thousands of years against malaria.
Malaria parasite can’t live in the presence of sweet wormwood because it is full of iron.
So far, this extract was hard to get at lower prices, but with the growing interest in this plant and the price might be acceptable.
French pharmaceutical manufacturer “Sanofi” promised producing 50 to 60 tons of sweet wormwood every year, hoping to meet the demand of the world market.
