Fenbendazole for Cancer: A 2023 Review

What Is Fenbendazole? Fenbendazole (also called Fenben) is a broad spectrum anthelmintic used against gastrointestinal parasites including: giardia, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, the tapeworm genus Taenia (but not effective against Dipylidium caninum, a common dog tapeworm), pinworms, aelurostrongylus, paragonimiasis, strongyles, and strongyloides that can be administered to sheep, cattle, horses, fish, dogs, cats, rabbits, most reptiles, freshwater shrimp tanks as planaria and hydra treatments, as well as seals. Common brand names include Pancur, Panacur C and Safe-Guard. However, it is also being used by humans in a cancer treatment method known as the Joe Tippens Protocol. Is fenbendazole a cancer cure scam?  One study suggests that fenbendazole has “been safely utilized as an anti-parasitic for various different animal species and could be repurposed for treating human malignancies.” Other benzimidazoles, including albendazole, parbendazole, mebendazole and

Why Have Wheat and Gluten Become So Problematic?

It isn’t just your imagination: Wheat allergies and gluten-related health conditions, including celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, are much  more common  today than they were a few decades ago. There has been a real increase in their prevalence. The question is: Why? The simple answer is, we humans have strayed a long way from the nutrient-rich, pesticide-free food on which we thrive, and the more we have strayed, the more health problems we have developed. Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are two of many disease expressions of that. Early Health Problems From Wheat With all the wheat-based products (e.g., bread, bagels, muffins, cookies, pasta, pizza, and burritos) that Americans and other people around the world eat, it’s automatic to assume that wheat has always been a component of the human diet. But that isn’t true. Before grains became widespread, people primarily ate meat and vegetables and no wheat or other grains. Grain-based agriculture—the planting and sowing of wil

Healthy, simple, gluten-free alternatives to bread, buns, and wraps

If you eat a gluten-free diet or want to try one, it’s natural to want to take the easy way out: Eat your standard American fare, such as sandwiches, and replace the wheat   bread   or tortillas you’re accustomed to eating with gluten-free bread or tortillas. Although doing so can prevent reactions to gluten, going gluten-free this way can lead to new, non-gluten-related ailments and diseases, such as weight gain, increased blood sugar levels, and insulin-related health conditions. That’s because gluten-free grain flours and starches (i.e., rice flour, corn meal, sorghum flour, millet flour, corn starch, tapioca starch, cassava starch, and potato starch) are high in calories and carbohydrates and high glycemic, meaning that they can spike blood sugar levels. An alternative to gluten-free bread is lower-carb, lower-glycemic, grain-free tortillas, which can work well on occasion. But the healthiest, most nutrient-rich alternatives to bread are easy-to-fix ones made from vegetables and fr

Quercetin and NAC for COVID-19 (2023)

Quercetin , a natural anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and  anti-blood clot  compound contained in abundance in various fruits and vegetables, is a zinc ionophore. The major benefit of taking quercetin with zinc is that the quercetin will push the zinc into the center of the cell where the zinc can stop the virus from reproducing. Additionally, Quercetin has been shown to be a potent inhibitor of coronaviruses by inhibiting cellular entry as well as inhibiting proinflammatory cytokines. One of the hallmarks of COVID-19 is an imbalanced immune response cascading to cytokine storms and then hyper inflammation which then can lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).  Quercetin has been shown to inhibit proinflammatory cytokine production as well as inflammation due to its antioxidant properties, amongst others. By inhibiting destructive inflammation and potentially the entire cascade, quercetin may prevent severe damage to the respiratory system amongst other organs ( source ). 

NAC and Cancer: Could This Common Supplement Be the Answer to Cancer?

N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a precursor for glutathione biosynthesis, is a common dietary supplement that could hold a secret to treating tumors resistant to conventional cancer drugs. Researchers with the Department of Biomedicine of the University of Basel in Switzerland, found NAC restores the sensitivity of breast cancer cells to treatment.(1) NAC is already valued in the medical field for helping increase glutathione in the body, which prevents liver damage in cases of acetaminophen (Tylenol) overdose. It also reduces acetaldehyde toxicity, 2  which causes many hangover symptoms. But, it seems, NAC is living up to its reputation as an “old drug with new tricks,” as the featured study suggests it may significantly improve treatment of advanced breast cancer. NAC May Help Fight Resistant Breast Cancer Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, with more than 2.2 million cases developing annually. 3  Among women with recurring disease, survival rates have barely improved in the la
