It’s official: the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has published information on its website that confirms what anyone read articles on natural health has long known :. Cannabis cures cancer
It is true that cannabis is in Annex 1 of the list of the Agency Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) under the Controlled Substances Act, the same schedule in listed heroin and LSD.
recently reviewed the marijuana came to pass Schedule 2, which includes cocaine and methamphetamine. The difference between Schedules 1 and 2 is that 1 includes drugs that have a high potential for abuse and have no medicinal value and 2 are defined with potential for abuse, but do have medicinal value (meth It has medicinal value!). The appeal was rejected and marijuana stays in Annex 1. ( 1 )
The post NCI gives a short list of potential therapeutic effects of cannabis on cancer and the story of his use in North America, ignoring their extensive applications for the prevention and treatment of diseases and was politicized the first part of the 20 ap century , when the DEA issued a drug illegal (against the opinion of the medical Association of America).
An interesting admission.
“Researchers have studied how cannabinoids act in the brain and other body parts Cannabinoid receptors (molecules that cannabinoids bind) have been discovered in the brain cells and nerve cells elsewhere in the body. the presence of cannabinoid receptors in cells of the immune system suggests that cannabinoids may have a role in immunity. “( 2 )
that’s a big deal, since the state of the immune system is a determining factor for the development of the disease factor.
However, this finding has not affected the media.
Clinical trials of cannabis use in humans to treat cancer have been strictly limited due to lack of funds for a substance in Schedule 1. The scientific community has carried out dozens of thousands of tests with exceptionally potent in rodents positive results. Until cannabis is reprogrammed, it is feared that this trend will continue.
Individual reports cures for cancer cannabis abound but many people reject firsthand accounts in the absence of empirical evidence. Thus, cannabis remains in the group of anecdotal remedies and can not stay.
Article 7 in the article of the National Cancer Institute
“have any clinical trials (research studies with people) of cannabis or cannabinoids by cancer patients have been conducted [?
“No clinical trials Cannabis as a treatment for cancer in humans have been found in the CAM on PubMed database maintained by the National Institutes of Health [NIH] . “
note that this is not a” no “, but is a response carefully qualified.
The statement may be true (we have not examined all almost 15,000 studies of cannabis published by the NIH), however, trials successful humans have been published elsewhere, such as British Journal of cancer in which he found cannabis to stop brain cancer. ( 3 )
A study is published by the NIH found that cannabis inhibit tumor cells and prevent metastases in breast cancer human tissues of patients . ( 4 ) Other studies on human cells have produced similar results. ( 5 )
Questions NCI recognize the body of scientific evidence has found cannabis to be effective in the treatment of many human conditions, however, insist that the Administration Food and drug Administration has not approved its use for any direct or peripheral cancer treatment. Only two methods of delivery of cannabis are listed, the connotation being that these are the only possibilities: eating and smoking. Smoking is a turnoff for many so a lot of potentially interested people there lost. No mention is cannabis coconut oil infused , which can be either ingested or applied topically. ( 6 )
All this leads to the question why, with such overwhelming evidence that it has taken so long for the US government to announce what alternative health has been known for long. Add to “modern” medicine findings of millennia past, during which cannabis was used for multiple diseases. ( 7 )
believe that the pharmaceutical industry generates more than $ 100 billion a year in revenue of medicines for cancer treatment … what does it cost to grow a marijuana plant ? ( 8 )
