Very interesting! From a friend.


When I was in the USN I was stationed in Key West, FL.  I worked at the clinic at Naval Air Station on Big Coppitt Key just a few mile north of Key West.  The hospital at Key West was for out patient only for retired armed forces personnel that lived in the area.  If you needed to be hospitalized you were sent to Homestead AFB Florida.  I had the day off and just went inside the hospital (Corpsman barracks were next to hospital). There was a retired navy man that worked in the lab and he was very interesting gentleman to talk with.  He was a retired biochemist from the USN,  he asked me what was going on that day and I  said I had the day off.  I wish I was working as the crew on today was taking a sailor to Homestead as he had a very bad kidney infection. 

Now this elderly gent told me the man should have eaten more asparagus and he wouldn't have that problem.  I asked why?  I'll never forget him saying do you eat asparagus and I said yes, I love them.  He replied you notice how your urine stinks after eating asparagus?  I said well I never thought it was what I ate, but yes it does have a pungent odor.  It is because it is detoxifying your body of harmful chemicals!!!  This was back in 1986 when I was stationed there and to read this email again I had to share this story...Eat more asparagus my friends.

    Asparagus -- Who knew?


    My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus, pureed it and 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

    will not need to see him for 3 months.


    Several years ago I met a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer.  He gave

    me a copy of an article, entitled "Asparagus For Cancer" printed in the 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, suffered from cancer of the

     bladder for 16 years.
    After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he

    began taking asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder

    tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.


    Case No. 3:   On March 5th 1971, a man who had lung cancer 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 disappeared.  He is now back at

    his regular business routine.


    Case No. 4:   A woman had been troubled for a number of
    years with skin cancer.  She developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by

    the acting specialist as advanced.  Within 3 months after beginning asparagus therapy,

    the skin specialist said her skin looked fine with no more skin lesions.  This woman

    reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which had 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 treatment.

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.  Fresh or canned

    asparagus can be used.  I have corresponded with the two leading canners
    of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no

    pesticides or preservatives.
    Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree.  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.


    Just a side note... In case you are wondering why this has not been made public, there

    is no profit in curing cancer!
