It is already known that undesirable health effects commonly occur when undergoing conventional cancer treatments like chemo and radiation. But still, the cancer industry continues to claim that their flagship products are the be-all and end-all of cancer treatment. A lot of people believed that medicine should treat and not cause harm that is why many scientists continue to search for a “less damaging” cure. Aside from the herbs and plants that can be used as a natural cancer treatment, scientists have surprisingly identified human breast milk to contain cancer-killing compounds.
Mother’s milk contains antibodies as well as other beneficial compounds that protect a newborn baby from all the harmful things in the world while their immune system matures. That is why it’s not surprising at all to know that breast milk may hold the key to fighting cancer naturally.
Breast Milk – A Cancer-Killer
Professor Catharina Svanborg, at her lab at Lund University, has been working to find a way on how to bind a breast milk protein known as alpha-lactalbumin to oleic acid, which is a fatty acid found in nuts, seeds, and olive oil.
In a test involving animal and human cancer cells, the cancer-killing combination she’s dubbed HAMLET (an acronym for human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumor cells), has shown a great success. It had shrink brain, colon, and bladder tumors with ease and also, had been found to be effective against at least 40 types of cancer.
Svanborg speaks about the amazing way breast milk kills cancer and told The Telegraph:
“Looking down the microscope at the dying tumor cells, we were quite excited, especially when the experiment was repeated and showed the same effect twice. We had used non-cancerous cells for a long time in similar experiments and they had not died.”
Meeting Skepticism And Doubt
Svanborg reportedly went onto patent her confirmed discovery in 1995. She published her research with the hope to take the cancer industry by storm. However, she was simply met with disbelief instead of being praised and applause.
The professor contended that:
“There was a certain degree of skepticism. It is about being let into the cancer community more than anything else.”
Svanborg is a university professor and immunologist. She wasn’t considered part of cancer or pharmaceutical industries and this makes her struggle to have her work taken seriously. Her research on breast milk and cancer fell on deaf ears as she was considered to be a threat to the profit-driven cancer industry.
Yet, Svanborg was determined and would not be deterred. She continued her research for the last 20 years and continues to turn her skeptics into believers, one by one. She said that:
“One has to be stubborn when it is a journey into unchartered territory. It is an absolutely thrilling project. If you hang in there, it opens up new ways of thinking about protein structure, cell biology and the nature of cancer. People are coming around to the fact that this is very well supported by in-depth studies.”
Her team has recently developed a way to mass produce HAMLET. This means that it could be soon become a widely used cancer treatment. Svanborg discovery promises to kill cancer cells without damaging healthy cells and this is considered to be a feat that eludes conventional treatments like chemotherapy.
