Cancer
and
Ellagic Acid

Cancer is the most feared of all diseases.
People immediately associate cancer with dying. Unlike other killing diseases, cancer usually causes a slow death involving great pain and suffering, with much mental anguish and a feeling of hopelessness. In addition, the mental and physical stress it puts on loved ones and caretakers is beyond calculation.

What is cancer?
You have 76 trillion cells in your body that must constantly undergo reproduction if the body is to remain alive and functioning correctly. Some of these cells reproduce every few days while others reproduce after a much longer period. As each old cell reaches the end of its life cycle, it reproduces and is replaced by a fresh young cell. The natural process of cell death is called apoptosis. The normal death rate of cells is controlled by a "biological clock" gene called the P53 gene.

We know that most cancers are initiated by the action of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable atoms or molecules with at least one unpaired electron. These unpaired electrons want and need a partner. Consequently, the unstable free radicals, which have the ability to attract electrons from other atoms or molecules, go about swiping electrons from other stable atoms or molecules. This taking of an electron from another atom means that the free radical is now balanced and is no longer a free radical. But the atom or molecule from which the electron was taken is now damaged, and it has become a free radical itself. This sets off a chain reaction of electron stealing and consequently damage within the body, similar to little bombs exploding within the cell structure. In their search for electrons, free radicals do a lot of structural damage to healthy cells. Cumulative free radical damage causes the plasma membrane of the cell to break down. When this happens, transportation of nutrients, oxygen, and water into the cell and the removal of waste products and toxins out of the cell become compromised. This causes the cell to either starve to death, die in a sea of accumulated toxic waste, or, if the DNA of the cell is also affected, it can cause the cell to reproduce daughter cells incorrectly, thereby causing cell mutation.

The mutated cell is now genetically incorrect and does not behave as a normal cell. The P53 gene of the cell is affected and the natural biological clock is stopped, eliminating apoptosis. Without apoptosis, the mutated cancer cell doesn't die. In order to sustain its growth a cancer cell steals nutrients from surrounding cells and begins to rapidly reproduce damaged, mutated cells in geometric progression (2, 4, 8, 16, etc.). Over a period of time the cancer cell develops into a cancerous mass or tumor. Cancerous cells from the mass or tumor can be transported to other tissues or organs where they imbed and begin to grow and reproduce (metastasize).

In recent years the ability of the medical community to diagnose and treat cancer has greatly improved. Unfortunately, however, the vast majority of cancers still lack effective treatments. The choices for conventional treatment involve some form of surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. These procedures are invasive, treat only the symptoms, and often cause side effects more severe than the disease itself.

Dr. Alan Levine of the University of California Medical School observes, "Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy." He also states: "Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon, or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade...."

Conventional methods treat cancer as a localized disease to be treated in a localized manner by cutting out the tumor, irradiating it, or flooding the body with toxic (often carcinogenic) drugs in order to destroy the tumor.

On the other hand, natural healing methods consider cancer to be a systemic disease. Emphasis is placed on rebuilding the body's natural immunity and strengthening its natural ability to destroy cancer cells. The key is to Alkalize, Cleanse, Nourish, and Balance the Body, allowing it to heal itself naturally.

Data on cancer (which has been corroborated by the National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Cancer Institute, and the American Cancer Society) found that 80 to 90 percent of all cancers are produced as a result of life-style factors, (smoking, alcohol, lack of exercise), exposure to chemicals, environmental factors, and dietary practices.

We are surrounded by natural and technologically produced toxins. These environmental poisons are present in the air we breathe, the foods we eat and the water we drink. In today's industrial world, we cannot escape them. We are exposed to more toxins in 15 minutes than our great-grandparents were exposed to during their entire lives. The majority of these toxins are considered to be cancer-causing carcinogens, and, as unbelievable as it sounds, the most toxic environment to which we are exposed daily is the environment in our own homes.

Each of us contributes to the destruction of our own health.

In our headlong rush to make our lives easier, safer, faster, more fun, and more convenient, we have changed our lifestyles. And, both accidentally and on purpose, we have also changed our environment. We have created the toxic environment necessary for a variety of old and new disease microbes and degenerative disease conditions, such as cancer, to proliferate and devastate our society.

Since lifestyles, environmental factors, and nutrition are the most common risk factors for developing cancer, it stands to reason that many of these cancers can be destroyed, substantially reduced, or their development reversed by reducing or eliminating the contributing risk factors. There are some risk factors like air and water which are difficult to control but can nevertheless be improved. And you do have almost total control over some of the other known risk factors such as smoking, alcohol, intake of chemicals and drugs, and diet and nutrition.

Diet and nutrition appear to be factors in 60 percent of women's cancers, 40 percent of men's cancers, and 75 percent of cardiovascular diseases. Space doesn't allow for a discourse on diets and what foods to eat to reduce possible cancer development, except to say, reduce your intake of fat, red meat, smoked meats or those preserved by nitrates, and eliminate from your diet white sugars, white flour products, and especially all soft drinks which are up to 500 times more acidic than your blood, causing a cascade of health problems.

Unfortunately, most doctors don't counsel cancer patients or those that are at high risk for cancer about nutrition. However, research shows that ingesting the correct foods and supplements may prevent cancer, boost the immune system and energy levels, and give the body a fighting chance to prevent cancer or heal itself. A healthy diet strengthens the immune system, slows tumor growth, protects against further metastasis and reduces the overwhelming negative side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.

Studies repeatedly show that there is a substantial reduction in cancer risk in those who eat or juice the necessary amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables. Only nine percent of Americans eat the recommended five daily servings. Research has found that it is the antioxidants in fruit and vegetables that confer additional protection against free radical induced cancer. Low blood levels of antioxidants are associated with an increase in death rates from many types of cancer.

One of the most promising areas in cancer prevention involving nutrition is in the area of chemoprevention. Chemoprevention is the concept that natural substances found in whole fresh foods provide powerful weapons against cancer, and against other chronic ailments as well. Chemoprevention is NOT chemotherapy. Instead of toxic poisons, chemoprevention employs non-toxic nutraceuticals to develop optimal health and to counteract cancer and other chronic and degenerative diseases.

A nutraceutical is a food substance or part of a food that provides medical or health benefits, including the prevention of, and/or treatment of disease. They are naturally occurring compounds found in plants, algae, microbials, and other biological sources which support specific bodily health functions. One of the most powerful nutraceutical chemopreventatives for cancer is an extract from red raspberry seeds and concentrated fruit called Ellagic Acid.

Ellagic Acid is a nutraceutical. It contains a naturally occurring phenolic compound that has very strong anti-oxidant properties. It is a potent anti-carcinogen. Ellagic Acid has the ability to inhibit mutations within a cell's DNA. It is also considered to be a cancer inhibitor which has the ability to restore apoptosis or normal cell death in cancer cells. In addition, research has found it to be antibacterial and anti-viral.

Dr. Daniel Nixon of the Hollings Cancer Institute at the Medical University of South Carolina has been working with Ellagic Acid from red raspberry seed in his cancer studies.

Dr. Nixon found that ingesting 40mg of Ellagic Acid daily, which is the amount of Ellagic Acid contained in 1 cup of red raspberries, can cause cancer cells to undergo apoptosis (natural cell death). This is important because when cancer cells undergo apoptosis it effectively stops their geometric reproductive progression. The cancer cells die a normal death and are not reproduced. In other words, Ellagic Acid reinstates the apoptosis (natural cell death) causing action of the P53 gene.

Dr. Nixon also has shown that human cervical cells which are infected with the human papilloma virus (which is considered to be the main cause of cervical cancer) are also killed.

Other investigations and researchers, both in the United States and in Europe, found that daily consumption of Ellagic Acid from red raspberries had positive responses in:

- reduction of perodontal disease
- protection of the liver from toxic injury
- promotion of liver regeneration
- promotion of faster wound healing
- reduction of radiation induced chromosomal damage
- slowing the spread of the HIV virus in the human body
- slowing the degenerative process of aging
- prevention of neural tube birth defects
- reduction of neurodegenerative diseases
- reduction of diabetic retinopathy

Ellagic Acid is a super antioxidant and a potent anticarcinogen which protects the cells against free radical damage. It is also a very powerful anti-viral and anti-bacterial agent. Ellagic Acid has the ability to inhibit mutations within a cell's DNA. It is also considered to be a cancer inhibitor with the ability to induce apoptosis or normal death in many different types of cancer cells.

Adding RBC's Ellagic Acid in the form of the "Immune 360" product and Marine Bio Coral Calcium (find these superior products at RBC Wellness Products) to the following cancer prevention guidelines is an excellent way to reduce the chance of developing cancer:

- Maintain a desirable body weight
- Eat a varied diet
- Include a variety of both vegetables and fruits in the daily diet
- Eat more high-fiber foods, such as whole grain cereals, legumes, vegetables, and fruits
- Cut down on total fat intake
- Limit or better yet eliminate consumption of alcoholic beverages
- Limit or better yet eliminate salt-cured, smoked and nitrate-preserved foods

Dr. Grange recognizes that alkalinity is the key to optimum health and that Marine Bio Coral Calcium dramatically increases the beneficial effects of Ellagic Acid.

Optimum alkalinity at the cellular level equates to optimum health.

Bood pH 7.4 is Health - 7.2 is Death.

Adding 1 gram of Marine Bio's Coral Calcium to a quart of distilled water raises the pH of the water to an alkaline 11.5 - 11.73. The 1 gram of Coral Calcium immediately increases the alkaline level by 100,000 times and a the same time adds one billion free radical fighting electrons.

Marine Bio's Coral Calcium is believed to be the most powerful antioxidant ever discovered.

The Marine Bio ionic form Coral Calcium, the "King of Minerals," is immediately bioavailable.

The calcium and other minerals in Marine Bio's Coral Calcium (almost identical in composition and proportion to human bone structure) become immediately ionic in the water, allowing the calcium, magnesium and trace minerals from the ocean to be readily available to the cells.

Additionally, Marine Bio's Coral Calcium lowers the surface tension of the water, allowing it to penetrate and hydrate the cells more effectively, carrying in nutrients and removing toxins and waste residues more effectively.
