Asparagus -- Who knew ? 
    This is from a friend 
     My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style 
     asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in 
     the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did 
     this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3 
     lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell 
     count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. 
     Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3 
                  THE ARTICLE: 
                 Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a 
                 friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy
                          of an article, entitled, Asparagus for cancer 'printed in 
                 Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it 
                 here, just as it was shared with me: I am a 
                 biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet 
                 to health or over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned 
                 of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that 
                 asparagus  might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked 
                 with him on his project We have accumulated a number 
                 of favorable case histories. Here are a few examples: 
Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case 
                 of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who 
                 was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting 
                 the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to 
                 detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a 
                 schedule of strenuous exercise. 
Case No. 2 , a successful businessman 68 years old 
                  who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. 
                 After years of medical treatments, including radiation 
                 without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 
                 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor 
                 had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal. 
Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he 
                 was put on the operating table where they found 
                 lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. 
                 The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case 
                 hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus 
                 therapy and immediately started taking it By August, 
                 x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had 
                 He is back at his regular business routine. 
Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of 
                 years with skin cancer. She finally developed different 
                 skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting 
                 specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting 
                 on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin 
                 looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman 
                 reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her 
                 kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10 
                 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving 
                 government disability payments for an inoperable, 
                 terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of 
                 this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus. 
                 I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of 
                 material medical, edited in1854 by a Professor at the 
                  University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was 
                 used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even 
                 referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of 
                 asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates! 
                 We would have other case histories but the medical 
                 establishment has interfered with our obtaining some 
                 of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to 
                 spread this good news and help us to gather a large 
                 number of case histories that will overwhelm the 
                 medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and 
                 natural remedy.... 
For the treatment , asparagus should be cooked  
                 before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just 
                 as good as fresh.. I have corresponded with the two 
                 leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I 
                 am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or 
                 Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to 
                 make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the 
                 patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and 
                 evening. Patients usually show some improvement in 
                 2-4 weeks... It can be diluted with water and used as a 
                 cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on 
                 present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do 
                 no harm and may be needed in some cases. As a 
                 biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what 
                 cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I 
                 have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with 
                 our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to 
                 suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take 
                 mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we 
                 have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as 
                 part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey, 
                 taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the 
                 nutritional approach to health, showed substantial 
                 improvements in all categories over the last one, and 
                 we can attribute these improvements to nothing but 
                 the asparagus drink.  
                 As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all 
                 aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a 
                 result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better 
                 with the latest theories about cancer. 
                 Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called 
                  histones , which are believed to be active in controlling 
                 cell growth.. For that reason, I believe asparagus can 
                 be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth 
                  normalizer . That accounts for its action on cancer and 
                 in acting as a general body tonic. In any event, 
                 regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is 
                 a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you 
                 from using it and it may do you much good. It has 
                 been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that 
                 asparagus is the highest tested food containing 
                  glutathione , which is considered one of the body's 
                 most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants. 

Asparagus Soup

Asparagus is a top source of folate, a vitamin B best known for helping prevent heart disease and birth defects.

Healthy Tidbit 

Asparagus is an excellent source of B vitamin folate. Folate is essential for maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system and for helping to reduce the risk of birth defects in prenatal women. Asparagus is also a natural diuretic and has been used historically to help treat conditions involving swelling, such as arthritis, rheumatism and PMS-related water retention. To preserve the freshness of asparagus, keep it in the refrigerator with the ends wrapped in a damp paper towel. Also make sure to place the asparagus in the back of the refrigerator away from any light, since folate is destroyed by exposure to air, heat or light.
