Avocados are nutrient-rich superfoods, but I guess you already knew that. And not only is the avocado nutritious, but it also has cancer-fighting qualities as well.
Avocados really are a superfood, listen to this: In 2015, scientists discovered that a specific leukemia cancer cell, called AML, is destroyed by converting its immortal status to apoptosis, or cell destruction. Yes, foods can aid in this process!
AML is one of the most common cancer cells in leukemia and can cause worsening of the disease at an accelerated rate.
To help you understand the process of apoptosis, consider this: Cancer cells are generally immortal, they do not understand the program of dying when it comes to cells, they simply grow and expand. The objective is always to cause the death of cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Natural alternatives are always the best option.
Oh, and for your information, the fat of avocados does not make you gain weight, they feed the brain. Yes, that kind of fat.
The war option
With chemotherapy, it’s like a war against the cancer cells, and there are many casualties. Along with the AML cells, many healthy cells are damaged and killed as well. This is where you see the side effects of treatment. Therefore, many people opt for alternatives…. like healthy cancer-fighting foods.
Big Pharma has not Great Solution to treat AML!
But of course, we knew this, right? Avocotin B is the compound isolated from avocados which is successful in inducing cell apoptosis. And of course, Big Pharma will take a stab at developing artificial solutions using this Avocotin B compound. It’s just inevitable.
At the University of Waterloo in Canada, the focus is on developing nutraceuticals or naturally derived solutions. Now, this is a true cancer-fighting substance. Big Pharma is evil, I say, they have banned an amygdalin extract derived from apricot seed, which has a huge effect on cancer cells. Those who live in the states will just have to eat apricot seeds to get the benefit, while citizens of Mexico get to take advantage of the cure.
So, keep eating those avocados and apricots and many other wonderfully healthy foods.
