Dr. Blaylock discusses cancer treatments and research with Dr. Stan Monteith.
Research shows that cancer stem cells seem to be the driving force of tumors and Inflammation seems to be the key factor in the spread and formation of tumors. If the inflammation is reduced the cancer tumors seem to then take on a more benign form. The research also suggests that the inflammation seems to be the determining factor in how aggressive a tumor will become and the likeliness of the tumor metastasizing or spreading.
The correlation between inflammatory diseases and cancers forming in areas of where the inflammatory diseases is concentrated is also becoming apparent.
The research is showing that certain flavanoids and nutritional products such as curcumin and quercetin, vitamin E, vitamin C, ellagic acid and resveratrol seem to inhibit cancer growth by reducing inflammation and blocking the processes which the cancer cell needs in order to grow.
These certain flavanoids also seem to protect tissues which are usually damaged during chemotherapy treatment and protect the normal cells while at the same time making the cancerous cells more sensitive to the killing effect of the chemotherapy and to radiation.
