A study has recently been approved to test the cancer-fighting potential of a common weed. Dandelions have a long list of health benefits, one of which is its anti-cancer properties. The root in particular is being used in formulations to extract constituents. Scientists have been able to create a product that is 10 times more potent than other products currently on the market.
Scientists at a Calgary lab have formulated a product in the form of a fine powder. They have executed many trials to create a product that can be dissolved in a hot water drink, and it is now ready for trials that will take place at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. This trial will be composed of 30 patients with blood cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma, that have not experienced success with conventional treatments. Scientists are hopeful that this will pave the way for further research and trials in this area of cancer research and the use of nutraceuticals.
