These foods KILL cancer cells better than chemotherapy – June 11, 2018

Image: These foods KILL cancer cells better than chemotherapy

(Natural News) Cancer remains one of the trickiest medical conditions to treat, with no clear solution or completely effective treatment.

In this huge body of research, some foods have been repeatedly identified as being effective at killing cancer stem cells.

These cells, sometimes called “mother cells”, only make up a small portion of the cells in tumors but continuously self-renew and resist chemotherapy. They can also split off to create new colonies of tumors, which is why destroying them is the key to effectively treating cancer in the long term.
