Last night, the girl in my Nutrients class who presented “Nutrition in the News” talked about some natural ways to treat cancer. There is a doctor, Dr. Mamdooh Ghoneum, who has spent the past two decades researching one of these natural cancer treatments. He has been experimenting with non-pathogenic baker’s yeast and has found that cancer cells, when exposed to the yeast, engulf it and then self-destruct.
First, Dr. Ghoneum used test tubes to experiment with breast, skin, tongue and colon cancer cells. Upon being introduced to the baker’s yeast, these cancer cells ingested it and died. Dr. Ghoneum’s next step was to inject the baker’s yeast into mice with larger cancer tumors. Again, the size of the tumor decreased greatly. The final step, which has not been taken yet, will be clinical trials.
Dr. Ghoneum’s experiments have been repeated and results confirmed and published by many scientists. It is exciting because the baker’s yeast could be successful in treating not only tumors, but also cancer that has spread throughout the body. Researchers are continuing to work on this study, in hopes that someday we can use baker’s yeast as a more natural method of treating cancer.
Below is a video of Dr. Ghoneum’s research and results, and other medical professionals’ viewpoints on it. It’s really interesting and encouraging that these doctors are so enthusiastic about continuing cancer research and focusing on more natural methods. They recognize how toxic and harmful conventional treatments, like chemotherapy, can be, and are eager to improve on how they help their patients. I think Dr. Ghoneum’s results are very promising and we should expect to hear more about baker’s yeast in the future!
