Skip to comments.Cancer cure found? Compound from Blushwood tree breaks down tumors in 70 percent of cases

Researchers from QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute have made an exciting discovery for cancer patients everywhere. A chemical found in a rare plant from Australia has the ability to "eat" cancerous tumors and completely eradicate them within days.
The tumor-eating chemical is found in the seeds of berries of the Blushwood plant. The chemical, which is being called EBC-46, takes three weeks to extract and the process is quite difficult. Experts are even saying that they still don't completely understand why the chemical is in the seed of the Blushwood berry in the first place.
Farming Blushwood in large quantities will also be extremely difficult because it needs the very specific rainforest conditions in North Queensland to thrive. The Atherton Tablelands are currently the only place where the berry grows, but researchers hope to be able to farm the plant someday.
The possible cancer cure is almost too good to be true, and researchers are very optimistic that human trials are not too far on the horizon. So far, treatments using EBC-46 have been used successfully in clinical trials involving pet dogs, cats and horses.
In most cases, a single dose of the treatment using the chemical caused the cancer cells in the tumor to degrade in just four hours. The tumor of one golden retriever named Oscar in the clinical trials on pets disappeared in just six weeks.
The speed of how EBC-46 works is in stark contrast to conventional treatments like radiation and chemotherapy, which severely compromise the body's immune system and take several weeks before the cancer even begins to shrink.
According to Dr. Glen Boylem, who leads the study, the treatment was successful on tumors and melanomas located in the colon, neck and head.

RE: So far, treatments using EBC-46 have been used successfully in clinical trials involving pet dogs, cats and horses.
Well good for you if you are a dog, cat or horse.
Maybe they can figure out the gene responsible for the chemical and implant it into an easier to handle crop—like tobacco or hemp. My preference would be hemp, because it would enhance the cancer-fighting characteristics of marijuana. / 1/2 S
The fourth horseman sees the cancer cure and raises an ebola outbreak.
If it were in hemp, the government would still keep it illegal.
Expect the Blushwood plant to become extinct very soon!
Most modern cancer treatments arose from veterinary trial with dogs before human trials were begun.
OK, then. Put it in tobacco. It can cure you as you smoke it.
The EPA will decide it needs to be exterminated for some reason, to protect some mutant insect, I expect.
Interesting article. Thanks for posting this.
“Experts are even saying that they still don’t completely understand why the chemical is in the seed of the Blushwood berry in the first place.”
Maybe to protect the plant from the plant equivalent of cancer?
Still looking for the botanical name in the article... did I miss something?
Is that not a given.
The chemical can probably be synthesized
Wow. Interesting find.
And this is the last we’ll ever hear of it if the FDA has anything to say about it.
possible one here, under heading: Tiglien-3-one derivatives

Sounds like a miracle.... a very very expensive miracle.
