The “Life Science” published a study which showed that artemisinin, a “Sweet wormwood” or “Artemisia Annua” derivative has the ability to kill 98% of breast cancer cells in less than 16 hours.
The plant used by itself reduced 28% of breast cancer cells, but when paired with iron, this plant was able to eradicate cancer almost entirely. What’s more, normal cells were not negatively affected in the experiment by this treatment.
In the past, people used artemisinin as a powerful antimalarial remedy. Luckily, this study managed to prove that this cure is also effective in the fight against cancer.
When scientists added iron while conducting the study, which later attached to breast tissue, especially to cells infected by cancer, artemisinine selectively attacked the “bad” cells while the “healthy” ones stayed untouched.
It should also be mentioned that iron accumulates in cancer cells with special receptors (called “transferrin” receptors) that help in cell division. Normal cells also have these receptors, but cancer cells have them in large quantities, so they can be targeted by the combination of iron and atemisinin.
There have been many experiments, which prove that artemisinin can effectively remove cancer in combination with iron. And this extract has been used in China against malaria for thousands of years.
Malaria parasites can’t survive in the presence of this extract since it is full of iron. This was discovered by the bio-engineers Henry Lai and Narendra Singh from the University of Washington. Their research proved that the cancerous cells experience apoptosis or self-destruction.
Nowadays, it is difficult to get this extract due to its high price, but people show more and more interest in this plant so the price could become lower. French drug manufacturer “Sanofi” announced that they expect production of 50 to 60 tons of artemisinin each year, hoping to meet the demand of the world market.
