Vitamin E kills off cancer cells and prevents their reproduction, study finds
(NaturalNews) Even with all the progress that has been made in cancer detection and treatment in the last few decades, there is still a long way to go. (Not really, there have been multiple cures over the last 30 years but the cabal steps in and eradicates the cure. We just need to release all the cures. –MrT.) Even with all the money that gets poured into cancer research, this disease remains the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, and numbers are similar for many other countries around the world. And a big part of the problem is that the majority of cancer therapies still revolve around some combination of surgery, chemo or radiation therapy.
All of these treatments carry risks, and all have unwanted side effects. That is why so many researchers are putting their time into coming up with more natural ways to treat cancer. And one surprising candidate that has emerged from all of this is vitamin E, which is more popularly known for its ability to nourish the skin.
Vitamin E and cancer
What has many people in the cancer research community talking about are several recently published studies that appear to the have found a link between high levels of vitamin E in the body and a decreased chance of breast cancer. Since this form of cancer remains of vital concern to women in particular, these studies have garnered a lot of attention.
How does it work?
While these studies were conducted separately, scientists participating in them drew some similar conclusions about the role that vitamin E plays in preventing cancer development. It appears that vitamin E is able to interfere with the special cells which actually nourish the cancerous tumor and help it to grow.
This interference means that the tumor is not able to grow, or more importantly, not able to spread to other parts of the body. It also was apparently able to induce higher rates of cancer cell death but without harming surrounding tissues.
Not all vitamin E is created equal
Before heading out to your local health food store to pick up a bottle of vitamin E, read on! Vitamin E actually comes in many different forms, and not all of these forms appear to be able to affect cancer cells in the way just described. The best kind appears to be vitamin E succinate, because it is this form which can act on the cancer cells and disrupt their ability to reproduce and spread – as well as hasten their death.
More research needs to be done to better understand the link between vitamin E levels and cancer, and the exact means by which this vitamin is able to stave off disease development. In the meantime, however, making sure to consume foods that are rich in Vitamin E and considering a supplement certainly won’t hurt!

This One Fruit Kills Malignant Cells of 12 Different Types of Cancer
Plus many other benefits

What would you do if you found out that the extract from a single fruit could keep the rogue cells of 12 different types of cancer in check?
Mainstream media reports that the fruit known as graviola, also known as soursop fruit, guanabana, or guyabano, is not a noteworthy cancer-fighter, but there are studies showing it effectively fights ovarian, colon, breast, prostate, lung, liver, cervical, lymphoma, and pancreatic cancers.
For pancreatic cancer, graviola was shown to be effective at “inhibiting tumorigenicity,” as well as “altering pancreatic tumor cell metabolism,” found one pathologist at the University of Nebraska.
Laboratory research also showed it to be 10,000 times stronger in killing colon cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapy drug. And Graviola, unlike chemotherapy, can kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells.
What about cervical cancer? Soursop was beneficial in treating this cancer, too, as evidenced in this scientific journal.
Yet another study showed that graviola extract inhibited breast cancer cell growth:
“These data showed that dietary GFE induced significant growth inhibition of MDA-MB-468 cells in vitro and in vivo through a mechanism involving the EGFR/ERK signaling pathway, suggesting that GFE may have a protective effect for women against EGFR-overexpressing BC.”

And there are indeed more studies. Graviola contains potent anti-cancerous agents called acetogenins which play a key role towards many varieties of cancer. Acetogenins are potent inhibitors of NADH oxidase of the plasma membranes of cancer cells.
Graviola also contains phytochemicals such as Anonaine, Friedelin, Isolaureline, Annonamine, Anomurine, Kaempferol, Asimilobine, Quercetin, and Xylopine well as compounds such as Annonamine, and Kaempferol.
