Long ago we know that cannabis is extremely medicinal plant, but to the evidence coming secretly, ie, the media do not carry such news.
Why is the healing properties of marijuana hidden, and why owning an illegal plants, unlike the possession of weapons say? Of course, because it comes to profits of pharmaceutical companies. When he was allowed cultivation, everyone would at home could pick and make a free cure for cancer, to relieve epileptic seizures, dizziness, nausea and many other diseases and symptoms. So strong chemical drugs would be totally unnecessary.
How to light yet out some studies that prove the therapeutic properties of cannabis, scientists are hastily thought of being able to synthesize some of its ingredients, which would avoid the legalization of the plant itself. All clear – again profit.
Despite all the efforts of scientists, governments and other powerful people, a large number of people who use marijuana as a medicine. As evidence that the right can be seen in numerous cases of healing, and supports them go and study. There are studies that prove the healing properties of cannabis in the treatment of cancer, but those are mostly conducted on laboratory animals, for now still do not conduct clinical trials on humans, although it is necessary, but most importantly, it is completely harmless!
According to Natural News, in 1974, researchers from the Medical College of Virginia found that THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, slowing down the growth of tumor cells in mice in three types of cancer – lung cancer, breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia.
Interestingly, the study actually was funded by the National Institutes of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system.
We can imagine the surprised faces of fervent opponents of marijuana that are badly wanted to prove her non-existent harmfulness!
According to the author of the book “The Emperor has no clothes” by Jack Herer, shortly after the discovery, DEA (police intelligence agency for combating drugs) closed the study and any further research that linked marijuana and cancer.
President Gerald Ford in 1976 banned all public research on marijuana and granted exclusive rights to research only pharmaceutical companies that have attempted to develop a synthetic form of THC.
In 1983, the Reagan / Bush administration tried to persuade American universities and researchers to destroy all research related to marijuana from the period 1966-1976. Herer states that numerous studies have actually disappeared.
Another important study was conducted in 2000 in Madrid, where the researchers were able to destroy the incurable brain tumor in mice by having them injected THC. The study was published in the journal Nature.
Study Manuel Guzman from Madrid found that cannabinoids, the active ingredients of marijuana, inhibit tumor growth in laboratory animals by modulating key cell signaling pathways and thus causing growth arrest and death of tumor cells. The study also found that cannabinoids inhibit angiogenesis and that is well tolerated and does not produce the usual toxic effects of conventional chemotherapy.
No medium is not conveyed the news of this important discovery!
As confirmation of these findings, a recent study from Harvard published on 17 April 2007 shows that the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, cuts tumor growth in lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the risk of the spread of cancer.
Science Daily notes that researchers at Harvard University tested the chemical THC on mice. This is the first set of experiments showing that THC actually activates naturally produced receptors to combat lung cancer. THC that targets the cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 is similar to the function of endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors. The researchers suggest that THC or other design agents that activate the receptor can be used in a targeted manner for the treatment of lung cancer.
Although the medical substitute for THC, known as Marinol, has been used as a stimulant of appetite in patients, suffering from cancer or similar treatments, several studies have shown that THC may have anti-tumor activity, says Anju Preet, Ph.D., a researcher at the Institute of Experimental Medicine.
A small number of states in the United States allowed the use of marijuana for medical purposes, and only clinical trial of THC as a cancer treatment, recently completed British pilot study of human glioblastoma (an aggressive brain tumor).
In this study, researchers first showed that two different cell lines of lung cancer, and lung cancer patient sample stand CB1 and CB2, and non-toxic dose of THC hinder growth and expansion in cell lines.
Then the researchers for three weeks, injecting the standard dose of THC mice were implanted human lung cancer cells, and found that the tumors reduced in size and weight in about 50% of the treated animals compared to the control group. DR. Preet says that there has been a 60% reduction in lesion lung cancer in these mice, as well as a significant reduction in protein markers associated with cancer progression.
So, there are scientific studies that prove the effectiveness of marijuana in the treatment of cancer, but about how we know very little, because the media does not write about it.
As a conclusion to specify an excerpt from the article author Raymond Cushing from San Antonio Current: “In many cases, millions of people have died horrible death, families have spent all their savings on dangerous, toxic and expensive drugs. Now we are just beginning to realize that marijuana has never killed anyone, but the prohibition of marijuana has killed millions. “
What can we do? We can spread the true knowledge of the extraordinary hazards of conventional modes of treatment of cancer, as well as the positive findings of the beneficial effects of natural and non-invasive treatment method, which we have written many times, and we will continue to write further.
