Vitamin A

There is an extensive bibliography on the anti-tumoral action of Vitamin A.

In particular the combined use of Retinoids in the proper proportions (beta-Carotene: retinol = 4 : 1), establishes a synergism which is higher than the sum of the single components.

There is an extensive bibliography on the anti-tumoral action of Vitamin  A cited from LAST PAGE OF THIS DATABASE: 1,3,10,13,14,17,18,23,24,28,34,35,36,45,56,69,73,76,92,93,94,100,106,111,120,121,129,131,137,138,165,187,200,202,203,208,209,21,213,214,216,218,222,235,255,256,257,263,264,265,266,280,282,286,287,288,298,303,304,305,307,313,315,322,324,325,326,334,338,340,341,347,38,352,354,362,363,365,382,383,385,390,398,402,404,405,409,410,420,425,426,427,445,446,447,448,454,457,461,463,468,469,470,471,473,477,48,493,508,512):

This studies conclude  the following about vitamin A:

Anti-tumoral action in general

Vitamin A and retinoids have an anti neoplastic action, shown both in vivo and in vitro, in various tumors: basilomas, scaly carcinomas, melanomes, skin cancers, fungoid mycosis, acute promyelocyte leucemia, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, cancer of the bladder and follicular carcinomas of the thyroid.

Preventative action

Anti-tumoral action has been amply shown indirectly, that is with a preventative purpose. Various  studies have, in fact, shown that low plasmatic levels of beta-Carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E are  connected to an increase in the incidence of lung cancer.

Direct action at a receptor level

Only beta RAR (retinoic acid receptor) seems to be involved. More specifically, vitamin A (and its derivatives) acts by binding with specific receptors. In this way it can both inhibit the proteic synthesis of DNA and RNA, and also perform an anti-promotion  action to determine the return of a cellular differentiation. Furthermore its ability to inhibit oncogenes should be noted.

Apoptosis induction 

Apoptosis means the activation of specific endonucleases which break up the DNA, acting at a level of nucleosomic sites that make up the primary structural unit of the nuclear cromatine of the cell.  Vitamin A and retinoids in general can induce apoptosis in neoplastic cells, by activating intracellular proteolytic enzymes, called caspase 2 and caspase 3, which provoke deterioration  through proteolysis by a transcription factor, called Spl.  If this basal cellular transcription is altered, death is caused by Apoptosis.

In prostate cancer the retinoids intervene by reducing the level of the bcl 2 gene, whose function is to protect the cells from death by Apoptosis.  Carotenoids induced apoptosis in prostate cancer

Dă clic pentru a accesa carotenoidi%20sono%20fattori%20attivi%20contro%20il%20cancro%20della%20prostata.pdf

Inhibition of the cellular cycle

The retinoids block the passage of the cell from phase G1 to phase S (reducing the activity of a protein, called cycline D1): this passage, if not blocked, would lead the cell to mytosis.

Reduction of phosphorilation

Retinoids intervene in cancer causing a reduction in phosphorilation of the pRb, thus increasing survival; this protein is active in suppressing cellular growth.

Synergetic interaction with interferons

A second mechanism, apart from the proteic-enzymatic one, can be traced back to the intervention of interferons which, like retinoids, act as anti-proliferative factors. In practice, acting synergetically, they induce the expression of proteins capable of inhibiting neoplastic cellular proliferation.

The intake of natural carotenoids from food 

There is very little evidence to show that carotenoids taken in from food can increase the levels ofvitamin A: an extra portion a day of green leaf vegetables is not able to increase the hematic level of vitamin A; on the contrary, a mixed diet of foods particularly rich in beta-Carotene will give a  significant increase in vitamin A present in the blood. (627).

If you oblige healthy individuals to eat carrots (270g), broccoli (600g) or tomato juice (180g) it does not establish any significant changes in the hematic levels of the carotenoids: you only find an extremely wide variation (even up to 3-4 times) in the efficiency of gastro-intestinal absorption of  the carotenoids and therefore in their subsequent bio-availability at a hematic level (628) .

Optimal values of anti-oxidants in normal individuals

Vitamin C: >50 microMols/Liter

Vitamin E: >30 microMols/Liter

Vitamin A: >2.2 microMols/Liter

Beta-Carotene: >0.4 microMols/Liter

Association of vitamin A with vitamin E

In an experimental model of a cellular membrane the possibility of a positive interaction between anti-oxidant liposollubles such as beta-Carotene and alpha-Tocopherol has been investigated; the  result showed that there exists a synergetic action between beta-Carotene and alpha-Tocopherol  together which inhibits the processes of lipidic peroxidization compared with when they are used alone (629). THUS:


Vitamins , antioxidants and nutrients should be taken from WHOLE, ORGANIC(note below) FOODS (as much as possible) NOT from supplements as they need other vitamins and nutrients for proper usage.

The difference between synthetic vitamins and natural vitamins

The difference between synthetic vitamins and natural ones can be easily exemplified by the experimental case of synthetic beta-Carotene (made up entirely of isomeric trans-beta-Carotene), and of natural beta-Carotene (made up of both isomeric trans-beta-Carotene and isomeric cis-beta- Carotene): the study showed a strong discrimination between the two isomers, with a serious decrease (impoverishment) induced at the level of Lycopene present in the LDLs (…). THUS:

3.It would be better to use the NATURAL (juice) ORGANIC WHOLE foods rich in vitamin A such as  Daucus carota (carrots ), avocados, cantalopues, etc. rather than the synthetic pharmaceutical vitamin products based on Vitamin A.

Vitamin B17(Laetrile/ Amygdalin) (very important vitamin)

Note: “Laetrile” acronym for “LAEvomandeloniTRILE-glucoside”) as Amygdalin:

Laetrile has two molecules of glucose, Amygdalin has more.

Indeed, the chemical structure of Laetrile is D-1 mandelonitrile–beta-glucuronide, while for Amygdalin it is D-mandelonitrile-bi-glucoside.

In 1845, fifteen years after the first French scientific experiences, the French scientific journal “Gazette Medicale de Paris”, (1188) and afterwards the German journal “Journal für die Chirurgie und Augenheil-kunde”(1189), described the first case of metabolic therapy with vitamin B17 to “cure cancer”, created by Russian doctor Inosmetzeff, professor at the Imperial University of Russia in Moscow. Therapy was performed on a twenty-one-year-old boy affected by cancer, and consisted of 46 grams of Amygdalin administered for 3 months. Inosmetzeff had also cured a 48-year-old woman with extended metastases due to womb cancer. In 1845 this woman was still alive, 11 years after metabolic therapy with Amygdalin. In both cases, Inosmetzeff said that he never noticed any side effects with vitamin B17.

For instance, doctor Francisco Contreras, the current managing director of the Oasis of Hope hospital in Tijuana, Mexico, treated more that 60,000 patients with a vegetarian therapy and vitamin B17 in 35 years of activity (1187). http://www.mednat.cancro/Contreras.pdf

Doctor Ernesto Contreras has been using Laetrile since 1963, and thinks that

“…The majority of most frequent cancers, such as lung, breast, colon, ovarian, stomach,esophagus, prostate cancer, and lymphoma, can improve dramatically with Laetrile” (1187).

Clinical Case history


Amygdalin taken orally has been known to be a poison since ancient times, though amygdalin-laden black and brown bitter seeds were described as antitumor agents in the pharmacopeia of ancient China (1497)

Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Arabic physicians also used amygdalin to treat tumors (1498).

In a study conducted in 1958, Prof Marco Tasca, head of the radiology department of the Civil Hospital in Sanremo, treated 21 Italian terminally ill patients – 3 suffering from seminomas, 4 from breast cancers, 1 from womb cancer, 2 from laryngitis cancers, 7 from lung cancers, 1 from cancer of the oesophagus, 2 from stomach cancers, 1 from Hodgkin’s disease – with intramuscular injections of Laetrile. He noticed that patients showed good drug tolerance, their clinical conditions improved during the entire treatment period and only one month – on average – after the interruption of the therapy the neoplastic pathology resumed its progression. He pointed out only two complications:

hemorrhage and icterus. The former probably caused by necrotic eschars coming off the tissues, the latter induced by a direct toxic action on hepatic cells, which rarely happens though (5% of his case histories). The article is available in PDF format (1373) at  or

In the 1966 report, Proceedings of the Ninth International Cancer Congress, Rossi cites a ten-year trial in Europe involving 150 patients that found „50 percent of all cases in treatment showed objective improvement” and concluded that laetrile was „an extremely useful chemotherapeutic drug.”(1382)

In 1994, professor Dr .Binzel published the results he obtained treating patients with Laetrile between 1974 and 1991. His case history included 180 patients with primary cancer (with no metastasis and limited to only one organ or tissue). 131 patients were still alive in 1991, when the report was published. At that time, 58 patients had been followed for 2 to 4 years, while 80 of them had had a medical follow-up for 5 to 18 years. Out of the 42 patients that had died by 1991, 23 had died from cancer, 12 from “unrelated causes” and 7 of “unknown causes” (Binzel E.P.: “Alive and Well”).

Among patients with metastasis, 32 out of 108 had died from their disease, 6 from “unrelated causes” and 9 from “unknown causes”. Out of the 61 patients that were still alive in 1991, 30 had had a medical follow-up of 2-4 years, 31 had been followed for 5-18 years.

Doctor John A. Richardson’s case history of 1976 reports over 6,000 cases that show a positive effect of vitamin B17 against cancer. (1187)

There are 4,800 cases reported and carefully studied by doctor Ernesto Contreras. Those were selected among 10,000 case sheets collected in 14 years of experiences with Laetrile.

Doctor Paul Wedel from Oregon reported about 4,000 cases of metabolic treatment. He survived cancer himself with vitamin B17 and a diet similar to the gersonian one (1187).

1,000 cases were reported by doctor Manuel Navarro of Santo Tomas University in Manila, the Philippines. The Mexican government is even monitoring about 100 patients that are being treated with metabolic therapy and vitamin B17, under the guidance of doctor Mario Soto de Leon, medical director of the Cydel Clinic in Tijuana (1187).

In Germany, doctor Hans Nieper reported about 1,000 cases. (  )

It is interesting to notice that cases such as that of Mr. Glen Rutherford from Kansas, who healed completely in Tijuana, are recorded in tribunal archives as “cures” (1187).

Clinical Trial of Chemotherapeutic treatment of advanced cancers with Leatrile

Guidetti Ettore

Rossi Benedetto

Deckers Christian

Presented at the 9th International Cancer Congress in Tokyo, October 1966

From 1954 to 1966 we gave 150 patients the above-mentioned therapy, chiefy at San Cottolengo Hospital, Turin; DosioHospital, Milan; and Louvain University Cancer Institute. All patients were in the terminal stage of the disease, the majority of them prey to cachezia, and all other therapies had failed.

The following table summarizes the cases treated, classified according to the site of the tumor, and showing the number of patients for each degree of reaction to therapy. We use the sign ++ to denote patients who reacted in an objectively favourable manner, by which we mean diminution of volume of the tumor or at least all interruption of its evolution, improvement in the roentgenographic picture, and improvement in laboratory findings. The mark + and + indicates patients who showed a more or less distinct subjective improvement, and the mark – those who reacted negatively to the treatment.

Cases corresponding to ++ represent about 20% of those treated.

We again underline the fact that the majority of these cases were simultaneously subjected to an immunotype therapy, which might have some bearing on the number of positive results observed, grouped under the signs ++ and + totalling about half the number of cases treated.

Cancer Site        No. cases            ++    +    +-           

Toruli tactiles                    26                           5             6             6             9

Breast                                  25                           3             8             7             7

Uterus                                 24                           7             7             4             6

Rectum                                               20                           2             9            2             7

Ovary (with infusion)    10                           2             2             2             4

Other types                       30                           9             7             2             12

Totals                                   135                        28           39           23           45

We have separately considered neoplasms of the pleura with effusion (15 cases), where the product was used direct by injection in the pleural cavity. In these cases we observed our best results, as generally we obtained reduction and then on occasion complete disappearance of the effusion, associated with a distinct improvement in the patients’ condition.


On the basis of our clinical trial, we are able to state that L-mandelonitrile-beta-diglucoside may be considered an extremely useful chemotherapeutic drug for palliative medical treatment of malign neoplasms, from the standpoint both of its therapeutic effect and its very low toxicity.

Vitamins(including B group) should be taken from WHOLE FOODS(organic) (as much as possible),NOT from supplements as vitamins and nutrients need other vitamins and nutrients for proper usage within the body.


Vitamin C (very important vitamin)

Vitamin C   is a respiratory vitamin- it stimulates the body to produce its own hydrogen peroxide (increasing cellular oxygenation –  see above Otto Wartburg proposals).

Therefore, megadoses of vitamin C are administered orally and intravenously by orthomolecular physicians to treat cancer.

There is also an extensive bibliography on the anti-tumoral action of vitamin C (25,33,47,54,83,91,122,129,181,197,202,218,244,246,270,299,311,335,339,367,404,405,414,415,416,489,496,510,511)

See the bibliography and studies quoted on last page of databse.

The pioneers of this oncological therapy were Pauling, who received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, and the Italian Pantellini.

Ascorbic acid is mainly known for its ability to reduce metallic ions in various enzymatic processes and above all for its ability to act as an anti-oxidant agent, thus able to remove free radicals, reducing the damage caused at a genome level.

Furthermore it may be able to block the formation of nitrose at a gastro-intestinal level, as well as carrying out a preventative action on the formation of adenomatose polyps.

Even though ascorbic acid is well known for its collagene forming action, and the well known effect of scurvy in cases of reduction or absence of this acid in the diet, this vitamin is also important, alongside vitamins A and E as a first class anti-tumoral agent.

It is a respiratory vitamin(like vitamins E, B3, B5)  that helps increase cellular oxygen levels.

It reinforces the intercellular bond and forestalls the destructive action of the hyalurons produced by many neoplastic cells.

Vitamin C stimulates the Natural killer lymphocytes, it supports the macrophagic activity, the chemio-tactical mobility of the white corpuscles, the production of antibodies and the response of the T cytotoxic lymphocytes to the antigenes.

Cameron found very low plasmatic levels of vitamin C in cancer patients (0.26 mg/100 mL) compared to normal plasmatic values (54).

In other studies, 154 cancer patients, undergoing analysis, were found to have low levels of vitamin C not only in their plasma (0.31 mg/100 mL), but also in their leucocytes (15.9 mg/10 E+8), with a positive correlation (r = 0.42) between these two values; in particular the authors attributed the alteration in the immune response to the tumor, especially of the phagocytosis, to the low  concentration of vitamin C in the white blood corpuscles.

Already in 1974 Goetz had shown that vitamin C, in vitro, was capable of stimulating the motility and the chemiotaxis of neutrophiles.

The doses advised in literature for anti-neoplastic therapy are about 3-10 grams a day, reaching even 40 grams daily, because the vitamin is not toxic, at high doses it only has a laxative effect.

It would be better to take it by eating fresh fruit, but it is difficult to reach such high doses of the vitamin in this way.

Integrating fresh fruit (kiwi, oranges, lemons and grapefruit) with the juice of sea buckthorn  , Rosa canina (dog rose, wild rose) to reach a daily dosage of at least 5- 8 grams of natural vitamin C, avoiding however, the use of pharmaceutically prepared vitamin C tablets.

Natural vitamin C, rich in its metabolites and other components called bioflavenoids (Citrin, Hesperidin, Campherol, Galangine, Isoamnetin, Rutine, Hyperoxide, Quercitin, Pychnogenol, etc) is more powerful and efficient, and furthermore is devoid of unpleasant gastric effects which are the result of high doses of synthetic vitamin C.

Natural vitamin C is moreover, characterized by a significant reduction in the formation of Calcium oxalate in the kidneys, as opposed to synthetic vitamin C. It is also easier for the intestine to absorb and has greater bio-availability, above all through its most important metabolites such as tronic acid, lixonic acid, xilonic acid etc.

This bio-availability has a critical importance in the immune defense system because the white blood cells tend to absorb Natural vitamin C 4 times more than they absorb synthetic vitamin C.

Recently, Myrciaria paraensis (camu-camu) has appeared on the European market. It is a small exotic fruit, similar to a small orange, but it contains 50 times more natural vitamin C than Citrus aurantium (orange), and it could therefore provide the daily dosage, of at least 3 grams, of vitamin  .

Also Malpighia punicifolia (acerola), a cherry from the Antilles, is very rich in vitamin C, containing 50 to 100 times more than citrus fruits.

Natural vitamin C is therefore efficient because it is naturally associated to the bioflavenoids (Citrin, Hesperidin, Campherol, Galangine, Isoamnetin, Rutine, Hyperoxide, Quercetine,Quercitine, Pychnogenol, etc..) and other molecules, in plants often characterized by an immune  stimulating activity (Echinacea purpurea, Plantago major, Capsicum frutescens)

Note: With very high therapeutic doses (>8-10 grams a day), Magnesium (e.g. Dolomite) must also be taken to avoid the risk of kidney stones.

Here enclosed scientific papers extracted from Catherine Kousmine (“Save your body”, page 129,

“Effects of C vitamin on our body according to Linus Pauling, edition Tecniche Nuove):

“…an intake of 1500 milligrams of ascorbic acid by mouth determines a concentration of 1.5 milligrams of C vitamin for each 100 millilitres of blood. By increasing the intake, the concentration suddenly increases up to 2.5 milligrams and then goes back to 1.5 millilitres for each 100 millilitres blood. There are enzymes which help the conversion of most

ascorbates into useful oxidation products. If the intake remains high, the body increases the amount of enzymes useful to the conversion; otherwise, if the ascorbic acid dose is suddenly reduced for some days, an excess of conversion enzymes and then a too law level of vitamin C in the blood occur. This means a number of disorders, as for example a higher sensibility to infections. The adaptation to a lower proportion takes place by reducing the number of conversion enzymes: it is necessary to gradually decrease the dose of vitamin C. By taking 100 milligrams a day and in presence of a plasmatic level of 1 milligram for every 100 millilitres blood, urines do not contain ascorbic acid because it is reabsorbed by renal tubules. If the intake is higher than 100 milligrams, i.e. 1-2 grams a day, 25% go in urines and the rest is kept by the body. Healthy people, who lack in vitamin C for some months, have to take 2-4 grams in order to eliminate them through urines. In case of cancer patients, who are used to take high doses of ascorbic acid, an interruption of some days requires an intake of 50 grams (fifty grams) of vitamin C so that this one can be found in urines”.


Vitamin D (very important vitamin)

NOTE:The link above contains multiple studies on sun exposure(vitamin D) and it’s crucial importance in fighting cancer:

Circulating Vitamin D levels in the Blood Dramatically Reduces Death Rate

* For each 10ng/ml increase in the blood level of vitamin D, the death rate from cancer would be reduced by 29%. The relationship between vitamin D and colorectal cancer is particularly strong.

The death rate for colorectal cancer would be reduced by 49%. (30 – Read Supporting Scientific Article on PUBMED)

Vitamin D Levels est during Summer = Improves survival by 40%

A Norwegian study showed that cancer patients diagnosed in the summer when vitamin D levels are highest had up to 40% better survival rates than patients diagnosed in the winter when vitamin D levels are at their lowest.

(56 – Read Supporting Scientific Article on PUBMED )

Low Vitamin D Levels Greater chance of Death & Metastasis

* Breast cancer patients with low levels of vitamin D followed over eleven years had a 70% greater chance of dying and twice the rate of developing metastasis than patients with high levels of vitamin D.

(90 – Read Supporting Scientific Article )

Lung Cancer Patients Higher levels = Dramatic increase in Survival

Early stage lung cancer patients who were diagnosed in the summer and had the highest levels of vitamin D had a five-year survival of 73% compared to 30% for those diagnosed in the winter with low vitamin D levels.

(60 – Read Supporting Scientific Article on PUBMED)

Lung – Colon – Prostate – Renal – Endometrial Cancers Higher Vit D levels dramatically decreases Risk

*High vitamin D levels (based on latitude and UV exposure) also correlate with a decreased risk of developing lung cancer, a 45% and 65% reduction in men and women respectively. Similar effects have been demonstrated in colonprostaterenal and endometrial cancer. (33 – Read Supporting Scientific Article on BMJ(British Medical Journal))

Advanced Colorectal Patients Risk of death greatly Improved

The risk of death for colorectal cancer patients with advanced disease but with high levels of vitamin D was reduced by over 60% compared to patients with low vitamin D levels. (64 – Read Supporting Scientific Article on PUBMED)

Prostate Cancer Patients

*Prostate Cancer Patients with Vitamin D levels in the mid and high range had a 60% and 85% respectively reduced risk of death from the condition compared to patients with low levels of Vitamin D. This is almost a seven fold increase in the risk of death in those with low vs high vitamin D levels. (152 – Read Supporting Scientific Article on PUBMED)

There is also an extensive bibliography on the anti-tumoral action of vitamin D- see last page of this database:  (28,157,160,188,208,209,231,240,246, 254,302,323,479,489)

Vitamin D is BEST taken from skin exposure to the sun, MINIMUM 30 mins daily,without any sunscreen or protection. Avoid burning and avoid the interval 11 am – 16 pm.

Natural vitamin D, contained in some plants, is however preferable to the synthetic type, because the latter is about 10 times more capable of binding with Magnesium, taking it away from the organism, thus causing all the damage that the loss of this incurs (osteoporosis, kidney stones).

Vitamin D induces the inhibition of neoplastic cellular growth: this has been shown in vitro in neoplastic cellular lines; especially of the hematopoietic system, of the CNS, of the prostate; the  colon, the ovaries and the breasts.

This action is thought to be expressed at various levels, in particular:

a) by means of apoptosis induction, through the activation of p21, that is, the inhibitor of the kinase proteins;

b) the inhibition of neoplastic cellular growth, which would be blocked in the G1 phase because of the action of the IGF1 inhibitor;

c) by means of cellular differentiation.


Vitamin E (respiratory vitamin)

This liposoluble substance consists of a group of various components, called Tocopherols.

Seven of these exist in nature; alpha-Tocopherol, beta-Tocopherol, gamma- Tocopherol, delta-Tocopherol, epsilon-Tocopherol, zetaTocopheros and eta-Tocopherol.

There is also an extensive bibliography on the anti-tumoral action of vitamin E -see last page of DATABASE (6,19,20,30,45,91,95,112, 125,129,142,165,167,190,202,228,229,246,261,280,332,404,405,452,494)

This liposoluble substance consists of a group of various components, called Tocopherols. Seven of these exist in nature; alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon, zeta and eta.

Alpha-Tocopherol has an anti-oxidant effect on the lipidic membranes in synergy with Melatonin(see below), carrying out a preventative action on the peroxidization of the cellular membrane induced by  ionizing radiation and by chemical carcinogenes.

Vitamin E also carries out an anti-oxidative action in a wider sense, acting as a ‘scavenger’ of the free radicals, similar to vitamin C.

It performs a stimulating activity on the immune system; it induces cellular differentiation; it inhibits, in a selective way, cellular growth intervening at DNA and RNA synthesis level.

Various studies have shown its ability to induce apoptosis in cellular lines of breast carcinomas and lymphoma B.

It is inactivated by Iron, therefore it is essential that any medicines based on Iron are not taken at the same time as vitamin E, but at a distance of at least 10-12 hours.

Aluminum, which is often present in pharmaceutical products, also deactivates vitamin E.

The uncooked oil of Triticum sativum (wheat germ; note: has vitamin B12) contains about twice as much vitamin E as the uncooked oil from the seeds of Helianthus annuus (sunflower) and the latter  contains about five times as much as uncooked olive oil. Furthermore all these seeds are rich in  essential unsaturated fats, an important part of the diet for cancer patients.

In anti-neoplastic therapy much is being discussed about: the raw seeds of Helianthus annuus

(which the author personally considers useful in therapy), wheat shoots (the author is not in favor),

Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast, of which the author is not in favor), and the shoots of soya  lecithin (of dubious use and the author is against their use because of the transgenic risk).

Natural vitamins are by far preferable to industrially produced ones: Dracontium loretense, for example, which is considered one of the best  plants for its specific anti-oxidant potential, is of superior quality in its anti-oxidant ability compared to synthetic vitamin E (566). WHOLE, ORGANIC FOODS are BEST due to COMPLEXES of NUTRIENTS !

As an already extracted natural product, together with or without other vitamins, vitamin E must be  given in addition to high quantities of raw seeds of Helianthus annuus (also containing vitamin A,all the vitamin B compounds, vitamin D, Manganese, Zinc and Magnesium) and of high quantities of raw Triticum sativum (which is rich in the precious alpha-lipoic acid): both are also very rich in vitamin B6 (pyridoxin), the latter is important for the immune system, but it is difficult to find in other compatible foods for a suitable diet for cancer patients. Pyridoxin, in fact, is contained especially in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the latter is a food which the author does not regard favorably for an anti-neoplastic diet, because it contains high quantities of folic acid.

Natural Octacosanol, extracted from the oil of Triticum sativum, has a synergetic action with vitamin E, but it is, in any case, better to consume it with all the uncooked oil of Triticum sativum  and/or Triticum sativum itself rather than taking it already extracted, as a pharmaceutical product  (because it loses its active principles).

Vitamin E is particularly efficient in combination with Selenium, which is contained in Aloe species, Solanum lycopersicum (tomatoes), Equisetum species, Allium cepa (onions).

There is also an extensive bibliography on Selenium (see last page of DATABASE) :


Both vitamin E and Selenium are in their turn synergetic with Zinc in inhibiting the production of inflammatoryprostoglandins and leukotrienes.

Vitamin E conversion factors

Vitamin E is expressed in milligrams of tocopheral equivalents (T.E.)

1 milligram of Tocopherol is equal to:

= 1 milligram of D-alpha Tocopherol

= 2 milligrams of D-beta Tocopherol

= 5 milligrams of D-gamma Tocopherol


Vitamin F  (very important vitamin-see omega 3)

Polyunsaturated fatty acids :

arachidonic acid, Linoleic cis-cis natural acid (vitamin F1) as: alpha-lipoic acid,  alpha-linolenic acid,etc.

Alpha-lipoic acid

Food Sources: 

spinach, broccoli, tomato, peas, Brussels sprouts, rice bran

Mechanism of action:

Alpha-lipoic acid acts as a lipophilic free radical scavenger. Dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), a reduced form of lipoic acid, has more potent antioxidant effects. It can assist in repairing oxidative damage and regenerate endogenous antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione.

Both DHLA and lipoic acid also have metal chelating capacities.

As a lipoamide, alpha-lipoic acid functions as a cofactor in various multienzyme systems involved in the decarboxylation of alpha-keto acids such as pyruvate. (13) (14) (15)

Alpha-lipoic acid caused cell cycle arrest in G0/G1 in FaDu and Jurkat human tumor cell lines (1).

Alpha lipoic acid was also found to scavenge reactive oxygen species in MCF-7 breast cancer cells (16).

Reduction of reactive oxygen species was then followed by cancer cell growth arrest and apoptosis (16).

For studies quoted see  

Other studies:

Alpha-Linolenic Acid(omega 3)

Food sources:flaxseed, avocado, walnuts, almonds, fishoils

Mechanism of action:

The alpha-linolenic acid (vitamin F), for instance, is a cis-polyunsaturated fatty acid that is contained in linseed cold-pressed oil: it is transformed into EPA and DHA (Omega-3 fatty acids) and is quite effective against malignant tumours, as shown by Pardini ( 1647 );

Moreover, Noguchi has proved that Omega-3 fatty acids, unlike Omega-6 fatty acids, help reduce tumour masses, although

Omega-6 fatty acids are unsaturated fatty acids, too ( 1654 ).

see  last page of DATABASE for studies quoted.
Omega 3, on their own, are crucial for a cancer patient:

-promote optimal functioning of the immune system.

A team of researchers based in China have published results of their work on omega-3 and breast cancer risk in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), stating that a high intake of fatty acids found in fish is associated with a reduction 14 percent risk of breast cancer later in life. To conduct their study, the scientists reviewed and analyzed a group of 26 studies in the United States, Europe and Asia, which included more than 800,000 participants and 20,000 cases of breast cancer.

promote natural cancer cell death and reduce cancer risk.

After analyzing the data to determine the impact of long chain fats on the risk of breast cancer, the researchers determined the difference between the lowest and highest intake category of marine polyunsaturated fatty acids was associated with a 14 percent reduced risk of disease .

In addition, for an increase of 0.1 grams per day of consumption of omega-3 fatty acids in fish, the risk of breast cancer is reduced by 5 percent. These results clearly demonstrate a significantly reduced risk of affecting the development of breast cancer and future progression of the disease.

The study authors concluded „Our current study provides solid evidence and robust as omega3 are inversely associated with risk of breast cancer. „

Scientists understand from previous studies that omega-3 fats, DHA and EPA, are preferentially accumulated in cell membranes and prevent cancer development through increased transfer of nutrients and oxygen to the cell nucleus.

With DHA metabolism, metabolites are produced that destroy cancer cells. Researchers believe that this mechanism is responsible for reducing the risk of cancers found in this study. (1200-2400 mg EPA / DHA combined daily to reduce the risk associated with breast cancer and other disease lines). Higher doses are required in cancer.

-omega 3 stops spread of cancer

Omega-6, found in most vegetable oils, increased spread of cancer cells in the bone marrow.

Nevertheless, the spread was blocked by omega-3

Comments Dr. Mercola:

„The evidence continues to grow. Not all unsaturated fats are good for you. Even if they come from such healthy foods such as sunflower seeds grown biodynamic. See, most vegetable oils are rich in omega-6 fat and very few people are deficient in these fats.

In addition, omega-3 provides a wonderful benefits for patients with prostate cancer by blocking the functioning of omega-6 fats that cancer cells use them as an energy source. (Therefore, only during cancer your treatment, avoid omega 6 polyunsaturated fats because the thinner blood vessels supply  tumors. thin blood vessels in the body are necessary for optimal functioning, but avoid in cancer high doses of omega-6) This happens at the molecular level when omega-3  (EPA  andDHA), reduces the action of a metabolite of the omega-6 arachidonic acid, prostaglandin E2. The sole point agreed on this study is that scientists have recommended omega 3 as a preventative for prostate cancer as and to stop its development. „

Dr. Clapp compiled a comprehensive program that has achieved national recognition USA. 1990 –was a very successful year of the program – had 16 cures of prostate cancer based on deep cleansing of toxins accumulated in the body and prostate, then flooding the cells with omega 3 fats. „Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this study is clear evidence of the mechanisms that omega-6 fats stimulate the growth of prostate cancer, clearly debunking industry hypethat  vegetable oils are good for our health. „

We saw dramatically reduced overall inflammation (measured by CRP testing) and especially in reducing enlarged prostate, reducing also any tumor mass, monitored / evaluated by Doppler sonograms.

-Omega 3 promote apatosis(programmed cell death) in cancer cells

Two new studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may inhibit the growth of liver cancer cells, suggesting that this may be an effective therapy to treat and prevent liver cancer.

Like vitamin B17/laetrile,and other natural substances(turmeric, ginger) omega 3 trigger apatosis.

The first study examined the effects of omega-3 and omega-6 fats in hepatocellular carcinoma cells .

Carcinoma represent 90 percent of all cases of liver cancer and is usually rapidly fatal. Omega-6 had no effect on cancer cells, but omega-3 – as  (DHA) and (EPA) – induced apoptosis (programmed cell death).

In the second study, omega-3 fats have been shown as effective in the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma tumor cells, an aggressive and fatal type of cancer that forms in the liver bile ducts.

Researchers said omega-3 fatty acids may not only be an effective treatment for liver cancer, but could also protect the liver from hepatic steatosis, chronic liver disease thought to be a precursor to cancer.

These above are just a few specific examples of cancer and Omega3 .Omega are great in any cancer.

Omega-3 Builds Muscle Mass in Cancer Patients, thus PREVENT and HELP IN CACHEXIA:

Omega 3 fats are highly recommended and among the few fats accepted in cancer (either from seeds, nuts, avocado or fish, although fish oils might be contaminated with heavy metals from the fish )

These and many other roles that help in cancer, including stimulation of the immune system, reducing inflammation , direct relationship to sun tolerance by the body and regulation of vitamin D levels (often those with cancer can not tolerate the sun, therefore can not benefit either its energy or the important natural Vitamin D, the sun being main source of vitamin D, but omega 3 fixes this, also regulating levels of vitamin D)
