    I recvd this email this morning:

    Asparagus -- Who knew ?
    This is from a friend

    My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style

    asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in

    the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did
    this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3
    lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.
    Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3

    Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a
    friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy
    of an article, entitled, Asparagus for cancer 'printed in
    Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it
    here, just as it was shared with me: I am a
    biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet
    to health or over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned
    of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that
    asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked
    with him on his project We have accumulated a number
    of favorable case histories. Here are a few examples:

    Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case
    of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who
    was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting
    the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to
    detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.

    Case No. 2 , a successful businessman 68 years old
    who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years.
    After years of medical treatments, including radiation
    without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3
    months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor
    had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

    Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he was put on the operating table where they found
    lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable.
    The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case
    hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus
    therapy and immediately started taking it By August,
    x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had
    disappeared.. He is back at his regular business routine.

    Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of
    years with skin cancer. She finally developed different
    skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting
    specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting
    on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin
    looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman
    reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her
    kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10
    operations for kidney stones, and was receiving
    government disability payments for an inoperable,
    terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of
    this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.

    I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of
    materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the
    University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was
    used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even
    referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of
    asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!
    We would have other case histories but the medical
    establishment has interfered with our obtaining some
    of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to
    spread this good news and help us to gather a large
    number of case histories that will overwhelm the
    medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and
    natural remedy.

    For the treatment , asparagus should be cooked
    before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just
    as good as fresh. I have corresponded with the two
    leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I
    am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or
    Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to
    make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the
    patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and
    evening. Patients usually show some improvement in
    2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a
    cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on
    present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do
    no harm and may be needed in some cases. As a
    biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what
    cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I
    have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with
    our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to
    suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take
    mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we
    have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as
    part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey,
    taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the
    nutritional approach to health, showed substantial
    improvements in all categories over the last one, and
    we can attribute these improvements to nothing but
    the asparagus drink.
    As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all
    aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a
    result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better
    with the latest theories about cancer.

    Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called
    histones , which are believed to be active in controlling
    cell growth.. For that reason, I believe asparagus can
    be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth
    normalizer . That accounts for its action on cancer and
    in acting as a general body tonic. In any event,
    regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is
    a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you
    from using it and it may do you much good. It has
    been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that
    asparagus is the highest tested food containing
    glutathione , which is considered one of the body's
    most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.

    All four in our household LOVE asparagus, it is very pricey... dangit... but...

    Quote:[​IMG] That canned stuff is AWFUL... I guess blending would make the torture shorter, not having to gum (no real chewing required) it. YUCK. My mom gets the canned stuff, canned spinach too. It was fine when growing up... didn't know any better. But now that I've had fresh, and frozen for that matter, that stuff is just bland, mushy, gross.

    I've seen this email before though, so I'm not gonna knock anyone who munches it in any form. Good for you even if this is a hoax.
