Common nutrient kills 97% of prostate cancer cells

Have you ever wondered why some prostate cancers are aggressive and deadly, while others grow so slowly that they're unlikely to kill you before you die of something else? Researchers from the University of Missouri may have found the answer. And what they found reveals an easy way to kill both types of prostate cancer.
The researchers found that the cells of prostate tumors have low levels of two important proteins. These proteins (perforin and granzyme B) work together to kill cancer cells. In order to kill a cancer cell, your cells must have both of these proteins in ample amounts. Low levels can slow a cancer's spread. But when the protein levels are too low or they go inactive, there's nothing to hold the tumor back. That's when it becomes aggressive and deadly.
These researchers then wanted to find out if they could increase the levels of these proteins, or at least increase the "expression" of the proteins that are present. ("Expression" refers to the proteins' active ability to induce apoptosis, or cell death, on the tumor cells. How expressive the proteins are is even more important than how many you have.) So they gave exposed prostate cancer cells to resveratrol. And the results were fantastic.
They found that the resveratrol highly increased the proteins' active expression. It increased their expression so much that the proteins were able to kill off 97% of the tumor cells! This is absolutely incredible!
We've known for some time that resveratrol was effective at killing many types of cancers. I've read letters from people who cured their cancer by taking the nutrient. But we've never known for sure how it works or why it's so effective. Now we know.
While you shouldn't rely on one nutrient or one treatment alone to treat cancer, resveratrol can be an effective way to help combat the disease if you have it. If you don't have cancer, resveratrol is a must for prevention. It's one of my favorite nutrients and one you should take every day. Not only does it fight cancer, but it's great for your heart and your brain as well. And, on Saturday, I'll show you what it can do for your skin.
