Vitamin E and prostate cancer
Destroy prostate cancer with vitamin E
By Dr. Allan Spreen on 11/19/2010
Scientists from Australia found that vitamin E might play a major role hampering the development and re-growth of prostate cancer tumors. For the study, Dr. Patrick Ling and a team of researchers injected mice with prostate cancer cells. Then, they divided the mice into two groups. They fed one group of mice water fortified with a form of vitamin E called gamma-tocotrienol or y-T3. The other group of mice drank regular water.
Researchers found that 70 percent of the vitamin E mice never went on to develop prostate cancer tumors, despite being injected with malignant cells. And, yes, the remaining 30 percent did develop prostate cancer. But following surgery, their tumors were far less likely to re-grow or metastasize. On the other hand, tumors formed in 100 percent of the control group of mice not given vitamin E.
Those incredible results, though tested on mice, show just how powerful vitamin E really is.
According to Dr. Ling, "Currently there is no effective treatment for metastatic prostate cancer, because it grows back after conventional therapies in more than 70 percent of cases. But with [vitamin E3] researchers have found a better way to treat prostate cancer, which has the potential to inhibit recurrence of the disease."
Dr. Ling went on to say that chemo, radiation, and hormone therapy fail to cure prostate cancer because they don't kill the cancer stem cell responsible for the re-growth of tumors. He also believes that y-T3 will also prove effective in suppressing other types of cancer, including breast, colon, liver and stomach.
Dr. Ling and his team do have a clinical trial with men in the works. I'll pass on the results as soon as they're available. In the meantime, keep up the daily regimen of 400 IU of vitamin E. Choose only 100 percent natural vitamin E that contains mixed tocopherols. This will provide provide balanced antioxidant protection. At the very least, the bottle should say it contains d-alpha or D- alpha. Skip any bottle that says it contains Dl-alpha (note the different "Dl" prefix). This means it's a synthetic, cheap imitation of vitamin E. Plus, it probably won't contain y-T3.
I have been using PP Taco-8 for several years as a staple. The health benefits are far reaching.

Great post BBB! Toco-8 is an incredible supplement and completely unique. It promotes healthy hair growth and prevents hair loss, clears plaque from artery walls for cardiovascular health, increases testicular sensitivity for increased testosterone production, and raises HDL while reducing LDL cholesterol. Plus many more benefits
