CROWD OUT cancer with this Brazilian ‘floating fern’

When you’ve got cancer, you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place.

You need a treatment that’s just toxic enough to kill your cancer… without KNOCKING YOU DOWN in the process.

The sad truth is that Big Pharma hasn’t figured out how to strike that balance with most of its chemo drugs.

Those chemicals destroy EVERYTHING in their path!

But hope has ARRIVED… in the form of a crazy plant INVASION.

The feds at the USDA listed it as a “noxious weed” in 1983…

But in an irony of all ironies, the agency’s attempts at ERADICATING it may have solidified its incredible value!

Here’s what to look out for when it finally hits the market…

Bother… or BOON to cancer battle?

Giant salvinia (Salvinia molesta) is a free-floating freshwater fern that’s native to southeastern Brazil.

It’s so hardy, it can grow up to two feet thick on the surface of lakes and ponds!

That makes it a nuisance to boaters…

Hence its Latin name “molesta,” which means “bothering.”

But this plant IS useful, because it can absorb pollutants right out of bodies of contaminated water.

And it can suck the life out of cancer in your body, too.

An antioxidant with potent radical scavenging activity, it’s PACKED with phenolic compounds, like caffeic acid.

Its potential as medicine, the USDA-funded research by the National Center for Pharmaceutical Crops has found, could be the answer to HARVESTING the plant instead of trying to KILL it!

The crack research team discovered that giant salvinia extracts INHIBIT the growth of human cancer cells… while keeping damage to normal cells at a MINIMUM.

Specifically, it’s extracts containing the compound identified as “salviniol.”

It’s a naturally occurring poison – or “endocide” – found in giant salvinia.

As I just mentioned, studies have shown that it can POISON your cancer… without poisoning YOU!

And the NCPC was granted a patent for the compound in 2017.

Now, it’s true that MANY natural compounds CAN’T be patented… which is why they’re IGNORED by Big Pharma.

But salviniol is SO rare… must be extracted in a very specific way… and must be used in a very specific amount… that the feds at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office HAD to acknowledge the unique work that the researchers put into developing it as an anti-cancer treatment.

But that means if you come across a patch of giant salvinia, you can’t just take matters into your own hands.

Eating the fern whole may not do a thing for your cancer.

So, keep your eyes open for the patented extract of salviniol to arrive – hopefully in supplement or medical food form, and not bastardized by the synthesizing process in Big Pharma laboratories.
