We do have some information for you on carrot juice!
But there’s no evidence that beta-carotene has any cancer fighting properties in patients. In addition, there’s evidence that the effects of antioxidants on cancer cells are complex could make some types of cancer more aggressive and interfere with certain treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy as you can read here.
There are lots of claims about ‘miracle cures’ to be found – but there’s often no scientific evidence to back up these claims. Find out more here. If you are being treated for cancer, our recommendation is to try and keep a healthy, balanced diet – we have written about this on our blog. Dr. Lorraine Day cancer
Carrot Compound Shows Promise for Slowing Cancer
When Bugs Bunny uttered his famous catchphrase, “What’s up, doc,” he was often chomping on a carrot, though he wasn’t inquiring about the health benefits of the vegetable. New findings suggest that they would have had a lot to talk about: results from a recent rat study indicate that a naturally occurring compound in carrots reduces the risk of developing cancer by a third.The compound falcarinol helps protect carrots from fungal diseases. http://reset.me/story/the-anti-cancer-properties-of-carrots/
Kirsten Brandt of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in England and her colleagues investigated the effects of the natural pesticide on rats suffering from precancerous tumors. The researchers studied 24 animals that were divided into three groups: one group ate regular feed that did not contain falcarinol, another group consumed the feed plus carrots and the last group dined on the feed with falcarinol added to it. According to a report published in the February issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, after 18 weeks the rats that received falcarinol (either from carrots or feed additives), were one third less likely to develop full-scale cancerous tumors than were rats in the control group.
Falcarinol can be toxic in large amounts, but it would take 400 kilograms of carrots to reach a lethal dose. The scientists used raw carrots for the study, so it is not yet known if cooked carrots or carrot juice will exhibit the same beneficial effect, and the mechanism for the vegetable’s apparent cancer-fighting effects remains unclear. “We now need to take it a step further by finding out how much falcarinol is needed to prevent the development of cancer,” says Brandt, “and if certain types of carrots are better than others, as there are many varieties in existence, of different shapes, colors and sizes.”
Raw, boiled or fried carrots are good for us!!!
They contain powerful cancer-busting chemicals, experts at Newcastle University have found.
The natural compounds, known as polyacetylenes, protect the plant from attack by pests and diseases. They occur only in vegetables of the carrot family and a few other closely related species such as ginseng.
Previous tests have shown the compounds can have beneficial effects in tackling inflammation and cancer. They were also found to reduce cancer growth in rats.
Now researchers have launched a three-year study to measure the effects of root vegetables such as carrots, parsnips and celeriac on cancer and inflammatory diseases like arthritis.
A team of food scientists, chemists and doctors will recruit scores of volunteers to take part in a dietary trial.
Project supervisor Dr Kirsten Brandt, senior lecturer in the university’s School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development, said: “After seeing the positive effects of feeding carrots in the animal experiments, it is important to test if it also works in humans, to find out how much carrot we must eat to obtain a health benefit.”
Dr Wendy Wrieden, of the university’s Human Nutrition Research Centre, said: “We know that eating a variety of vegetables and fruit can reduce the risk of some cancers and other chronic diseases.
“Hopefully this work will give us a clearer picture of the role of vegetables and perhaps provide encouragement to the public to eat more.”
Research in China has already shown that carrots, best known for supposedly helping us to see in the dark, can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by a fifth
The team will investigate how much of the polyacetylenes are absorbed into the body when the vegetables are eaten raw, boiled or fried and in large or small pieces.
The water or oil in which they have been cooked will also be tested to see if there are any health benefits in re-using it in stews or soup.
Previous research by Dr Brandt found that carrots contain the anti-cancer compound falcarinol, which reduced tumours in rats by a third. But falcarinol, like vitamin C and sugar, is soluble and lost when carrots are boiled.
At the time, Dr Brandt said the secret of healthier and tastier carrots was to use a bigger pan so they can be cooked whole.
She said that increases the anti-cancer properties in a cooked portion by 25 per cent.
The latest study is being partly funded by the British Carrot Growers’ Association.
Martin Evans, managing director of co-operative Freshgro, said: “It has long been accepted that carrots are very good for us but this research project will go much further in improving our knowledge and awareness of the health benefits of this group of root vegetables.”
Research in China has already shown that carrots, best known for supposedly helping us to see in the dark, can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by a fifth. Men who ate carrots at least three times a week were 18 per cent less likely to develop a tumour.
And in the US, researchers at Harvard University found women who ate at least five carrots a week were nearly two-thirds less likely to have a stroke than those who ate them only once a month.
Carrot juice, because of its many healthful benefits, is frequently called a the “miracle juice.” A large number of people–throughout the United States and in all walks of life–suffering from various ailments have found that the inclusion of carrot juice in their diet has greatly improved their health. Countless others have found it to be a valuable “protective” agent in the building and maintenance of health in both children and adults, while its delicious flavor makes it popular with all members of the family as a beverage –plain or combined with other juices.
Gold mine of nutrients.
Carrot juice actually does two things…. It PH balances you and it gives your body enough enzymes to fight the cancer itself. My wife has Leiomyosarcoma…. which is a rare cancer that’s pretty much fatal and conventional therapies just make it worse. A part of what she did was carrot juice… pulped and then extracted for the enzymes. Look up Gerson Therapy for a better understanding of it… read the blue book.
She juiced 125 pounds of carrots a month for a year or so. She was given 6-12 months to live in 2011. She is currently helping people in our area with cancer alternatives. I don’t agree that carrot juice is everything that helped her, but there have been people out there that have cured their cancer with just carrot juice. Ann Cameron is one example.
Just remember… doctors treat cancer. They don’t cure it.

Dr. Duarte is a member of the Board of Editors of the Journal of Applied Nutrition. Began medical career as research microbiologist – involved with natural healing for many, many years.The problem we face:
_ Over 10 million Americans are battling cancer
_ One person dies every minute from cancer
_ World Health Organization (WHO) calls cancer an epidemic
_ Cancer causes one out of 4 deaths in US
_ Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US
_ Almost 2.3 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed this year _
_ Costs $165 billion annually to “treat” cancer
_ One man in two will get cancer
_ One woman in three will get cancer
_ One woman in eight will get breast cancer
Many things cause it – radiation, free radicals, HRT, pesticides,
poisons & toxins, parasites, infections, too much sunshine, etc.
* Only 5-10% genetically predisposed
* Changes in DNA start the problem in the other 90%
* Incidence of disease (cancer) increases as we age
* Early diagnosis leads to better prognosis
Top three types of cancer:
* Lung Cancer – most prevalent, 155,000 deaths a year, induced by inhaling carcinogens; Japan – many heavy smokers but low incidence of lung disease, due to their lifestyle – they eat and drink a great deal of anti-oxidants, so we know anti-oxidants
play an important role in fighting cancer.
* Breast Cancer – 39,000 women die annually, should be checked on a regular basis
* Skin Cancer – basal cell carcinoma – a million new cases diagnoses every year; easily treated, vs. melanoma
Majority of cancer is treated by chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, with many side effects; chemo & radiation therapies are not benign, they do have a risk, and can even cause other cancers; they do have a time and a place and can give us benefits, but there are still risks. Surgery is often a life saver before the cancer metastasizes.Beneficial solution:
* Paw Paw – adjunctive product, to be used with a regular, intensive anti-cancer program
* Has efficacy by itself but best used as part of a program.
* Grows in the US on the eastern coast
* Active ingredients: Acetogenins – anti-tumor, anti-pesticidal compounds – powerful affects on cancer; only a few have been isolated but there are at least 400 – long-chain fatty acids – with powerful effects on cancer. Some will attack specific cancers, but they have a synergistic effect working together vs. being isolated.
* Entire array of natural acetogenins should be used together in a standardized extract for best results; harvested at the time of year when there is the highest level of acetogenins
These acetogenins fight cancer in four different ways:
* Stops the production of cellular energy in abnormal cells; nothing in the body can take place without energy! Cancer cells gobble up as much glucose as they can, and send out biochemical messengers to dissolve your muscle tissue to make glucose so they can grow. These cells have difficulty propagating if you slow the energy process.
* Helps to prevent the development of blood vessels growing to or near the tumors – angiogenesis; cannot metastasize without a pretty good flow (2 ml in diameter); inhibit the blood vessels
* All cells must have DNA and RNA – inhibits the DNA & RNA replication so the abnormal cells cannot divide.
* Some cells have a very unique method of pumping out chemotherapeutic agents before they can enter the cell and kill the cell; multiple drug resistant pump, driven by energy (ATP molecules) paw paw inhibits the ATP energy production to the pump; pump cannot work, and these cells will die. In vitro studies show Tremendous tendency for these multiple drug resistant cells (cells resistant to the chemotherapy) to die first using the paw paw.
* Blocks the nucleotides (depletes the DNA and RNA building blocks) – significantly reduced in just 3 days’ time!
One of the most powerful anti-cancer substances known – almost a million times more powerful than standard chemotherapy adriomyacin (spelling?) in killing certain cancers, murine (spelling?) lung cancer and murine leukemia in mice (Abbott study).
Not making a claim that this cures cancer – although studies are ongoing (Dr. Forsythe in Reno, NV) – but people with cancer respond wonderfully to the paw paw.
Reports on clinical trials (130 patients) – prostate, breast, skin, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, etc.:
* Patient #3, tumor size began to be reduced, unable to be detected by MRI
* Patient #8 – seven months of chemotherapy + paw paw – tumor almost irradicated, after a radical mastectomy, biopsy showed no cancer in 14 lymph nodes – considered cancer free.
* Patient #12, breast cancer, Stage 4, paw paw for 6 weeks, 50% reduction in tumor markers, 160-80, 50% reduction in tumor size
* Patient #66 – Prostate, 25% reduction in tumor mass, verified by cat scan, after six weeks
* Patient #75, PSA 4.5 after 6-8 weeks PSA dropped to 1.7
* Patient #52 – non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, 6.5 years, 3 rounds of chemo, normal 3.5 – 12 (thousand) – white cell count 34,000, 35 days on paw paw, cells dropped to 11.2. Total lymphocyte count should be 16-34%, dropped from 67% to 30%, well within normal range.
More powerful than any other anti-parasitic drug except for invermectin (spelling?).
Nutriceutical contraindications – should not take certain supplements:
* CoQ10 – one of the primary enzymes that drives ATP energy production in the cell
* Antioxidants – a few are okay, but you don’t want heavy doses *
Thyroid stimulators – 7-Keto, Thyroid Activator * S.O.D. with Gliadin
* Nature’s Noni – potent immune modulatory effect
* Immune Stimulator – contains potent bi-products from mushrooms and colostrums
* Protease Plus – digests the coating of tumor that protect it from the immune system from recognizing the cancer and going after itSECOND SPEAKER:
* Dr. Jerry McLaughlin, Vice President of R&D/QA and Chief Scientific Officer of Nature’s Sunshine Products, has earned his degrees from the University of Michigan. During 34 years of professional service, his research group produced over 330 scientific papers, 34 masters and Ph.D. graduates, 50 visiting scientists and post-doctoral associates, eight patents and over $5 million in research grants and contracts. His devoted years of research into the health benefits of the Paw Paw tree have come to fruition in this powerful, new product.
Dr. McLaughlin – published over 100 articles on the biology and chemistry of this plant
In 1962, Pres. Nixon began a war on cancer, but we haven’t made much progress on the treatment side of cancer, even though we have a much better understanding of the biology of cancer.
Started studies at Purdue in 1972; started mouse studies in 1974 with Upjohn study. Given leukemia, usually die in ten dies, if they live 12 days said to be significant; mice lived 13 days longer with taxol but lost 10% of their body weight in ten days; taxol is not a pleasant compound to take. On paw paw, mice gained weight, and lived even longer; paw paw proved to be 300x more potent than taxol. Another study – $66,000 – utilized mice without thymus gland (no T-cells, so they cannot reject a tumor); planted human tumors under their skin which they could not reject, so they will die in about 60 days; these studies done at ten days – cysplantin (sp?) used (human ovarian cancer), planted , also lost 5% weight of total body weight, 78% inhibition; paw paw produced 75% inhibition, less weight loss in ten days. (Study done in 1993, study published in Life Sciences)Learn these simple warning signs!!!
* Changes in bowel or bladder habits – most common sign (rectal bleeding, getting up several times during the night to urinate)
* Any sore that does not heal
* Unusual bleeding or discharge – serious for postmenopausal women, pap smear helpful
* Thickening or lump in breast or elsewhere (other lymph areas – 8 out of 10 are not cancerous)
* Indigestion or difficulty swallowing – obstruction of breathing also
* Obvious change in wart or mole – would indicate melanoma (black mole cancer – extremely dangerous, can kill you within six months because it spreads so rapidly)
* Nagging cough or hoarseness
(Also watch for unexplained weight loss)
Had to demonstrate that paw paw would be safe; scentists don’t like to do dog studies. Eli Lilly sold a paw paw extract as an emetic in 1898 – caused people to vomit. (Physicians from that era purged and bled people to treat them.) Dr. McLaughlin related that he ate too many paw paws as a 4-year- old child, caused him to vomit. 32 capsules, 4
times a day, given to dogs, was not toxic, just caused dogs to vomit.
So, if you are physically able to vomit, no toxicity!
Purdue holds 8 patents on it, and NSP has exclusive rights to produce it.
1982 – mouse model had to go; started using brine shrimp; all anti-cancer drugs kill brine shrimp; using potatoes, growing tumors on slices of potatoes (30 per disc of potato); anti-cancer drugs will stop those tumors.
Went through 3500 species of plants and Paw Paw was the best; isolated over 50 compounds from it. Again – there is NO toxicity if you can vomit.
NSP owns all patents; no one else can sell this Paw Paw product. Competitor has another product on the market — Graviola plant – “Brazilian paw paw” – wrong type of compounds (single vs.double-ring), much less potency; no standardization to that product and one tree can from from the next by a thousand times. No studies done on this.
100,000 pounds of paw paw being collected right now; most potent in May. Also kills worms, so added to the Para-Cleanse; can even be given to animals. Other uses – toenail fungus; new golden salve product (3% extract) for cold sores (Herpes simplex) [will be released this fall], clears up shingles in three days (herpes zostrex); eczema and dermatitis.
How To Cure Cancer With Carrots ~ How To Cure Cancer With Carrot Juice!!!
Two Remedies for Tumors- Pick the One That’s Right For You*
(Be sure to make a copy for future reference)
Proven Remedy #1, for GETTING TUMORS TO STOP GROWING:
- Find a juice extractor if you do not have one.**
- Have your tumors scanned so later you can accurately determine changes in size.
- Wash, remove tops, and juice THREE POUNDS of ordinary carrots. DO NOT PEEL THEM!
- Drink the THREE CUPS of juice obtained in step 3.***
- Repeat Steps 3 and 4 DAILY, INDEFINITELY, to keep tumors from getting larger. To shrink them, you must consume more than three cups of carrot juice per day (see Proven Remedy #2, below).
- Have the size of your tumors redetermined periodically to verify results and to keep you motivated to keep juicing. Results may vary, depending upon whether or not you skipped any days, and/or drank all the juice you made each day. If you juice and drink 3 CUPS DAILY, your tumors will REMAIN ABOUT THE SAME SIZE as when you started juicing.
Proven Remedy #2, for GETTING RID OF TUMORS****:
- Find a juicer if you do not have one.**
- Have your tumors scanned so later you can accurately determine changes in size.
- Wash, remove tops, and juice FIVE POUNDS of ordinary carrots. DO NOT PEEL THEM.
- Drink the FIVE CUPS of juice obtained in step 3.***
- Repeat Steps 3 and 4 DAILY UNTIL YOUR TUMORS DISAPPEAR. This process will take from a few months to a year or more, depending upon the aggressiveness and initial size of your tumor. Have the size of your tumors redetermined periodically to verify results and to keep you motivated to keep juicing. Results may vary, depending upon whether or not you skipped any days, and/or drank all the juice you made each day. If you juice and drink 5 CUPS DAILY, your tumors will be SMALLER each examination.
- Continue juicing two to three months after tumors disappear to make sure they are completely gone.
*These remedies only work with carrots. Although other foods are beneficial for maintaining health, carrot juice was the only food or supplement we could find out of many we tried that was able shrink our tumors. The carrots do not have to be organic to be effective. Other foods may be eaten as well as long as the required daily intake of carrot juice is maintained. Also, amounts specified assume body weight of about 160 pounds.
**A juicer, also called a juice extractor, removes pulp leaving undiluted juice. A blender does not concentrate carrot juice and is not sufficient to shrink tumors or even stop them from spreading and growing. If you have cancer and do not have a juicer, you need to obtain a juicer without delay. You can find used ones ebay for under $50 and at swap meets often under $20. Some of the cheapest ones are awkward to use and clean and small ones require you to slice the carrots, but any will do the job until you can get a better one. I like the Juiceman II because it takes large carrots without slicing. I sometimes see them at swap meets for $20- $30, but you should try to take it apart before you get it, since it is hard to open for some.
In any case, avoid getting a new one because there are lots of used ones out there, and it is likely that even if you spend a lot there will be something you don’t like anyway. I can juice 5 lbs. and clean up in about ten minutes. Some machines, even the expensive ones, take much longer I suspect. If you do not have a juice extractor, many people have extracters they don’t use much, and they might lend you theirs if you ask them nice. If you are near downtown Los Angeles where I live, I have some I will lend out for a deposit.
***It doesn’t seem to matter whether you drink the juice all at once or spread it out over the day. I drank all five cups (see Proven Remedy #2) in the morning, which may be too much at once for some. I found that drinking it through a (broad soft-drink style) straw helped it go down relatively quickly and easily.
****This is my preferred remedy of the two for obvious reasons. If I seem a bit fanatical, it is because each of the people who have tried five cups of carrot juice per day and had subsequent scans have reported either that their tumors have shrunk or, in the case of prior surgery, that new tumors did not appear. Besides working for me, 5 cups of carrot juice worked for the woman that told me about it, who cured herself of ovarian cancer over a period of 18 months, and it is working for many others currently, including author Ann Cameron, whose July 2013 catscan indicated that her chest tumor had disappeared.
The odds of this happening randomly for metastasized cancer three out of three times, and exactly on cue like it did for each of us, is in the neighborhood of one in a million. And it keeps happening, as evidenced by the many emails Ann and I have been receiving from people with tumors who are starting to juice. That doesn’t mean it will always happen. It does mean that there is an excellent chance that it will happen for anyone commits to five cups of carrot juice per day.
had no recurrences. It worked for Ann Cameron, the author of 15 children’s books, who contacted me with fast growing tumors a few months ago after reading about my experience online. Her tumors stopped growing immediately, and have shrunken since then. She reported on her progress in her March 18th post below [“Carrots and My Cancer”, last updated July 2013 when her scan showed her tumors were gone]. You can contact her through her website, www.anncameronbooks.com . My experiences are shared in the original post (Carrots and Cancer) on this site. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. We would both love to hear from you.
If Ann’s post and mine do not appear on this page, enter the site directly at cancerisover.org so that they all appear together. Please keep me posted as to the results you are having so we can update and fine-tune our recommendations, and with your permission, share your experiences with others. Leave a message and I will return your call. Please visit this site, cancerisover.blogspot.com, periodically for updates and revisions.

ONE Also need to look at all aspects of body. Do you have other areas that are off? Other hormones? Female hormones? Estrogen/progesterone? Low testosterone? Leptin resistance? Insulin resistance? Liver enzymes issues? How is your CBC panel? Your electrolytes? Your kidneys?
Just fixing/working on your thyroid is very important, given the cancer, but if you only work on that area without addressing other issues, your body will still be out of alignment.
