Artemesinin (derivative of wormwood plant) + Iron = Cancer Killer

This is an interesting article about a possible cancer killing combination of herbs. If you, or someone you know, is battling some form of cancer, then this may be something to look into.

Cancer treatment[edit]

Artemisinin is undergoing early research and testing for the treatment of cancer.[27][28] Chinese scientists have shown artemisinin has significant anticancer effects against humanhepatoma cells.[29] Artemisinin has a peroxide lactone group in its structure, and it is thought that when the peroxide comes into contact with high iron concentrations (common in cancerous cells), the molecule becomes unstable and releases reactive oxygen species. It has been shown to reduce angiogenesis and the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor in some tissue cultures. Recent pharmacological evidence demonstrates the artemisinin-derivative dihydroartemisinin targets human metastatic melanoma cells with induction of NOXA (phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate-induced protein 1)-dependent mitochondrial apoptosis that occurs downstream of iron-dependent generation of cytotoxic oxidative stress.[30]    (WIkipedia)
