The Hunt for a Known Cure by Bill Sardi

Posted: August 16, 2012 in Uncategorized

One of the dirty little secrets of modern medicine, and a reason why healthcare costs are so high, is that researchers and clinicians are trying to profiteer by inventing and delivering the highest cost medicine. Ten-cent cures are not to be found. Patentable, costly man-made medicines reign. Natural medicines are shunned or ignored.

Such is the case where British scientists claim they have discovered high iron levels in the colon/rectum raise the risk for cancer and say they are avidly searching for chelating (key-lay-ting) molecules that will mop up the iron and reduce the risk or even treat active colon/rectal cancer. They say they hope to start using these molecules in the coming years. But high-risk individuals with polyps in their colon or who have a history of bowel inflammation can reach for a cure that is already at hand.

A molecular cure already exists and is found in nature. It is the reason why whole-grain and high-fiber diets reduce the risk for colon/rectal cancer. A master iron-chelating molecule called IP6 (for inositol hexa-phosphate), found in the bran portion of grains and seeds, which is an available dietary supplement as a purified rice bran extract, has been demonstrated to inhibit colon/rectal cancer in numerous studies and inactivates the very same cancer-promoting gene (Wnt) shown in the newly published study in Britain. In one study IP6 decreased the uptake of iron in cells found in the colon by 50-65%.

Why not use natural methods before drugs?
