Asparagus -- Who knew? From a friend – My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus,
pureed it and took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this
for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer
cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. Her oncologist said she will not need to
see him for 3 months. THE ARTICLE: Several years ago I met a man seeking asparagus for a friend who
had cancer. He gave me a copy of an article, entitled "Asparagus For Cancer" printed in the Cancer News
Journal, December 1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: I am a biochemist, and have
specialized in the relation of diet to health or over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned of the
discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with
him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories. Here are a few examples:
Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was
completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect
any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.
Case No. 2, A successful businessman, 68 years old, suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years.
After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he began taking asparagus.
Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were
Case No. 3, On March 5th 1971, a man who had lung cancer was put on the operating table where they found
lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless.
On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures
revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He is now back at his regular business routine.
Case No. 4, A woman had been troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She developed different
skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after beginning
asparagus therapy, the skin specialist said her skin looked fine with no more skin lesions. This woman
reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which had started in 1949. She had over
10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable,
terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus treatment.
I was not surprised at this result as `The elements of materia medica', edited in1854 by a Professor at
the University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones.
He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!
We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of
the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large
number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural
remedy. For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using. Fresh or canned asparagus can be used.
I have corresponded with the two leading caners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that
these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives. Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy
to make a puree. Store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and
evening. Patients usually show some improvement in 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a
cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can
do no harm and may be needed in some cases. As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what
cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with
our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take
mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as
part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the
nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and
we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink. As a biochemist, I have made an
extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that
asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein
called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I believe
asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action
on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic. In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we
suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good.
It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing
glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
Just a side note... In case you are wondering why this has not been made public, there is no profit in curing cancer!
