Unraveling the Mysteries of the Cancer Fighting Oleander Plant




Unraveling the Mysteries of the Cancer Fighting Oleander Plant

by Tony Isaacs

The major active compound in the amazing cancer fighting and immune boosting oleander plant is felt to be the cardiac glycoside oleandrin. However, the opinion among those who have studied oleander is virtually unanimous; it is a synergistic combination of many ingredients which makes oleander as successful as it is.

It has been reported that over 500 different compounds have been identified in the amazing cancer fighting and immune boosting oleander plant. Research has yet to discover exactly which ones work both independently and together for optimum effect, though oleander extract has shown remarkable success against a very broad range of cancers, including lung, liver, leukemia, breast, brain, prostate, stomach, pancreatic and more.

To paraphrase a department head at noted cancer research facility M. D. Anderson in Houston, "We don`t know yet exactly how it works, we just know that it does work, attacking and killing bad cells - and only bad cells - and stopping their multiplication."

Among the known cancer fighters and immune boosters which have been identified so far are:

Cardiac glycosides, long chain polysacharrides and other types of compounds including: Oleandrin, Oleandrinogen, Oleandrigenin, Beta-sistosterol, Quercitin, Linoleic-acid, Oleic-acid, Adynerin, Alpha-amyrin, Betulin, Foliandrin, Folinerin, Gitoxigenin, Isoquercitrin, Lauric-acid, Neriin, Oleanolic-acid, Rutin, Stigmasterol, Ursolic-acid, Uzarigenin.

Now, two Japanese studies from last year which were apparently conducted jointly appear to shed new light on yet other compounds in oleander which were tested against malignant fibroblast tumors, liver tumor cells, lung tumor cells and ovarian cancer cells.

The first study was titled "Bioactive Cardenolides from the Stems and Twigs of Nerium oleander", and it evaluated thirteen compounds against fibroblast, liver and ovarian cancer cells. The test results found that seven of the compounds demonstrated anti-cancer activity against the fibroblast tumors; three compounds were active against liver tumor cells and four exhibited selective cell growth inhibitory activity toward fibroblast tumors.

All thirteen compounds were evaluated against ovarian cancer cells on the basis of the amount of calcein accumulated in MDR human ovarian cancer 2780AD cells in the presence of each compound. Three of the compounds showed "significant effects on calcein accumulation" and one of the three showed "stronger activity than that of verapamil."

In the second study, "Bioactive pregnanes from nerium oleander", three new pregnanes together with two known pregnane compounds were evaluated against fibroblast, liver, lung and ovarian cancer cells. One of the pregnanes was found to have significant cytotoxic activity against both fibroblast and liver cancer cells. Three of the pregnanes were found to have significant activity against ovarian cancer.

The study would appear to be especially encouraging for cancer patients with ovarian cancer, a particularly difficult cancer, especially when combined with previous studies which concentrated mostly on the cardiac glycosides or else the entire array of compounds found in an aqueous extraction of the oleander plant.

In real life applications, oleander medicines and supplements, and a noted oleander home remedy, have enjoyed tremendous success against cancer. Dr. H. Zima Ozel, who re-discovered an age old oleander remedy and later developed the patented medicine Anvirzel reported success rates of over 70% in the 40 plus years that he has used oleander in Turkey. The present manufacturers of Anvirzel similarly report very high success rates against a variety of cancers, including the very difficult pancreatic cancer.

During the past five plus years, hundreds of people have used an inexpensive oleander based supplement, Sutherlandia OPC, as well as a home remedy version based on the Ozel extract with over 90% success reported.

With so many compounds working together, it may be a very long time, if ever, before all the synergistic compounds which make oleander work are identified. What has been identified is that oleander works and works very well indeed.

Note: The oleander plant is highly toxic in raw form and no one should try to make their own home remedy without following exact instructions which can be found at:

A CLASSIC lesson in gun control history

A CLASSIC lesson in gun control history



A CLASSIC Lesson In Gun Control History Facebook shares info....
Daris Wiebe commented on your link: "A CLASSIC lesson in gun control history reposted from Bob Whigham, who said... A Little Gun History Lesson. In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, thus, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------ In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. --------------------------- Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated ------------------------------ China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ---------------------------- Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------ Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ------------------------------ Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million 'educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. ----------------------------- Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million. ------------------------------ It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in: Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)! In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns! It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too! While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it. You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late! The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind him of this history lesson. With Guns...........We Are "Citizens". Without Them........We Are "Subjects". During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED*! *Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard U 1919-1921 & was Naval Attaché to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & was ill prepared to defend the country. It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U. S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U. S. & knew that almost all households had guns. If you value your freedom, Please spread this anti-gun control message to all your friends!"
