Recent Studies Show Cancer Can Be Beat Naturally

Research suggests fucoidan has several therapeutic properties. It contains antioxidants, which protect against cell damage, and is sold as a dietary supplement. Fucoidan kills viruses and combats inflammation. It also can stimulate and balance the immune system, guard against neurotoxicity and prevent blood clots.

Cancer can manifest in any way and in several ways, but it is a disorder of cell growth from a default in biochemistry. Almost all cancer is environmental (as much as 90 percent environmental), according to a new study at Stony Brook University in New York. That means the cell-growth disorder is prompted and spurred on by environmental and external factors. These include excess sun exposure, smoking, drinking and air pollution. It also includes genetically modified foods, steroids and antibiotics pumped into livestock and poultry, and pesticides and weed killers sprayed on crops. It includes a host of chemicals introduced to foods during production and in packaging. Whole body health has to be re-established. Diet and lifestyle changes are needed. The proper diet for cancer is the proper diet for heart disease — and for good health in general.

There are over 1,000 studies currently published on the nutrient Fucoidan, 128 show how it helps with Cancer, and 18 of those are specific for Breast Cancer. The most recent, showed that fucoidan induced phase arrest and even caused apoptosis. In other words, fucoidan stopped the cancer from progressing and triggered the death of the cancer cells. The study showed that ROS productions was increased, which suggested that fucoidan induced oxidative damage in MCF-7 Breast Cancer Cells. Fucoidan is a natural food compound that has shown promise in fighting cancer. Found in many forms of brown seaweed, fucoidan is a type of complex carbohydrate called a polysaccrharide and is composed of various sugars, sugar acids and sulfur-containing groups. While seaweed has been a staple food in Asian countries for thousands of years, brown seaweed has only been the focus of research for the past decade. Fucoidan, in particular, has received the most attention. “Many different structures of fucoidans have been identified and their varied biological actions are now an area of intense study as many of these molecules have shown promising therapeutic potential,” said Cynthia Castillo, ND, MSAOM, Naturopathic Resident.

Seaweeds traditionally have been used to treat high blood pressure, bacterial and viral infections, and inflammatory conditions. More recently, fucoidan has been shown to have antitumor and anticarcinogenic effects. Fucoidan’s therapeutic properties may come from its ability to act as natural killer cells and regulate substances involved in cell growth. “As more data from human clinical studies becomes available, it will allow us to better elucidate the therapeutic benefits of these versatile, naturally occurring compounds,” Castillo said. “While the data available on fucoidan at this time are pre-clinical, it looks as though we could add fucoidan to this list of beneficial food-based nutrients.”

As this new review shows, there is good evidence from multiple studies that suggests nutrition, certain supplements, physical activity, and stress reduction can indeed have a major effect on survival.

In fact, as one of the study authors put it, “At times, these modalities can actually have a survival effect that could be similar to conventional care.”

Of course, nutrition plays a major role when it comes to cancer. In fact, the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research reported that 30 to 40 percent of all cancers could be prevented with proper nutrition, along with regular physical activity.
