garlic brain cancer 263x164 Garlic Proven to Kill Brain Cancer Cells, Prevent Future Growth

A small group of researchers at Medical University of South Carolina found something that’s useful for anyone willing to properly consume lots of garlic. They discovered that certain organo-sulfur compounds in garlic can in fact kill brain cancer cells without disturbing healthy cells.


But they did this in 2007! It didn’t get much mainstream press, if any. Did we miss something? Maybe Big Pharma is trying to figure out how to create those compounds synthetically to get a patent and pay the FDA for approval after offering dubious papers from sketchy trials. Whether it’s useful for the cancer industry remains to be seen. But the results of this study haven’t received much if any attention from the mainstream press.

Lemon Essential Oil Study: Essential Oil of Lemon Effective Against Candida Yeast Infections

Candida albicans is a yeast (or fungus) that normally inhabits our digestive system. In healthy people, candida does little harm because it’s kept in check by beneficial microorganisms or probiotics.

These “good” bacteria, however, can be easily destroyed by antibiotics, prescription medications, birth control pills, poor diet, and daily stress, allowing Candida yeast to grow out of control and produce infections. Thought to affect more than 40 million Americans, Candida can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as vaginitis, weight retention, bowel disorders, ear and sinus irritation, intense itching, canker sores, and ringworm.
